Emily Kinney – Mermaid Song Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] I am a mermaid that you dreamt
Swimming away while you slept
4th of July, kegs of beer
Baby, we had a nice time but I don’t really fit in here

[Chorus] You pulled me up to your bedroom
I fell in love, I fell in love too soon
I don’t know the intention of your heart
I don’t know why it’s been scary from the start
And I don’t know how you don’t know how to apologize
So I’ll be almost to the ocean when you open your eyes

[Post-Chorus] Oh, swimming away

[Verse 2] What’s the point of California if we don’t go to the beach?
What’s the point of being friends when we’re both so hard to reach?
What’s the point of all the midnight text messages you send?
I can’t help but break in half each time you ask me to bend
I can’t help but unravel when you pull out a thread
I just lose my mind when you mess with my head
And I will always throw a tantrum if you throw me just some bone
I’m not your puppy, I’m a famous fish, who’d rather swim alone

[Chorus] You pulled me up to your bedroom
I fell in love, I fell in love too soon
I don’t know the intention of your heart
I don’t know why it’s been scary from the start
And I don’t know how you don’t know how to apologize
So I’ll be almost to the ocean when you open your eyes

[Post-Chorus] Oh, swimming away
Oh, swimming away
Oh, swimming away
Oh, swimming away
Oh, swimming away
Oh, swimming away

[Outro] I am a mermaid that you dreamt
Swimming away while you slept
4th of July, kegs of beer
Baby, we had a nice time but I can’t really breathe up here
