Children Within — Mermaid lyrics

I breathe the same air as you do
Though my lungs drown in water
You will survive
When like a fish, you dive
You we're born to a life
On a sunken island
A once so proud countryside
Is silent
They don't believe me
We've got saltwater in our eyes
To prove our true nature
With a thirst too hard to slake
It's not enough with the deepest well
I breathe the same air as you do
Though my lungs drown in water
You will survive
When like a fish, you dive
I have the same need as you have
Need an endless horizon
To keep the mood
And save me from the prude
I'm a sailor on a ship
That's always sinking
From time to time
You've got me thinking
That I should be the first mate
Now I'm floating next to you
Hoping for a quick rescue
And I'm happy with myself
I feel relaxed and it's getting late
I breathe the same air as you do
Though my lungs drown in water
You will survive
When like a fish, you dive
I have the same need as you have
Need an endless horizon
To keep the mood
And save me from the prude
