Frank Black — Selkie Bride lyrics

Human form she had
In Crescent City
She showed me her pity
Lucky me
In a storm so bad
The worst of the autumn
She came from the bottom
Of the sea

Please won't you stay awhile
Give me your coat
And we'll fall in love in my boat
You'll be my Selkie Bride
Please give me no denials
A promise I give
I'll forsake the life that I live
Now you're by my side

If you return again
I'll be the saddest man
My lips will burn your skin
If you return again
Please don't return again
Please don't return again

Human form she had
In Crescent City
She showed me her pity
Lucky me
On that day so sad
Breezy and sunny
She melted like honey
In the sea
