Selkie’s Song

So won’t you please turn me again?
Turn me again
To you
So won’t you please turn me again?
Turn me again
To you

This skin it won’t fit like it used to
These bones they don’t hold it so well
In too many ways I’m a stranger
And it’s a stranger who warms you right now

But darling remember before you care to regret
That song dark and wild, this skin soft and wet
Bride of the water ocean’s silk child
Well there’re times and there’s tides
And there’s days she’s got to hide,
She’s got to hide

Oh this skin it won’t fit like it used to
These bones they don’t hold it so well
In too many ways I’m a stranger
And it’s a stranger who warms you right now
Oh this skin it won’t fit like it used to
These bones they don’t hold it so well
In too many ways I’m a stranger
And it’s a stranger who warms you right now

So won’t you please turn me again?
Turn me again
To you
So won’t you please turn me again?
Turn me again
To you

(Skin it won’t fit…)
