about

Morveren finally discovers who is the one who bewitched her with his voice : a young man named Matthew Trewella. Her father relunctantly lets her go to Zennor church where the boy performs every night. Where is this unnatural attraction leading the mermaid to?

lyrics

Even if my father says it's not wise
He'll let me reach Zennor church in disguise
Out of the waves I will feel paralysed
Listening to this sweet voice will be my prize.

Here I'm sitting, and marvelling
at this boy : his voice and his face
make me feel like
he's the only one in this place

It's ebb tide... So soon... Well, I should be leaving

How could I ever live without your singing?
My thirst for love is quenched by your sweet singing.
Each night I'll come to you, swimming, then crawling
no sea : my scales are drenched by your sweet singing
But when the sea ebbs I must leave you, crying
because I can't let humans see or seize me

Here I sit, it's been a year
since your song first flew to my ear
What's become of me?
All I want's a glance from him
I know it's time to leave, why am I staying?

How could I ever live without your singing?
My thirst for love is quenched by your sweet singing.
Each night I'll come to you, swimming, then crawling
no sea : my scales are drenched by your sweet singing

"First I heard just a sigh
turned round, and what a sight
so fair a face, so strange a gleam..."

I caught his eye
Now I exist
What have I done? I Must exit

Tide's long gone she crawls
Matthew follows
her, his folks
are on his feet

"Matthew don't follow her,
you'll lose your soul!
Stay, don't leave your people
Stay with your kind,
leave her behind!"
