Sitting on the ocean beach,
I watch a wave as it begins to teach
A young child what it means to swim.
I decide to get up and run on a whim,
I desire to run deep down in the sea,
to keep going deeper until I can be
What everyone wants but doesn’t claim,
For no one wants to be different; yet no one wants to be the same
I want to draw men in with song,
Make a melody so they have to sing along,
Wear my hair long and wavy down my back,
Make my face radiant so there’s nothing I lack,
I want to be beautiful so I draw you in,
Is it so wrong to want you, is it a sin?
I no longer want to be independent or on my own,
But I also don’t want to wait around for you to throw me a bone,
I don’t want to be sitting and rusting like strong iron,
I simply want to sing my love song to you like a siren.
