lyrics

She's slipping out of her skin
Tired of the way that she's been
Stepping on to dry land
He finds her asleep in the sand
He grabs her silver brown pelt
He can’t control how he felt
Away they did run
She isn't used to the sun
Selkie Girl, come home with me
Selkie Girl, forget the sea
Selkie Girl, I want you for my wife
We'll start a new life, start a new life
He’s holding tight to her hand
Completely at his command
She’ll learn to cherish his touch
He isn’t asking too much
He loves her deeply and strong
How could it ever be wrong?
She’s beginning to smile
Someday she will carry his child
Selkie Girl, come home with me
Selkie Girl, forget the sea
Selkie Girl, I want you for my wife
We'll start a new life, start a new life
He gave the best that he had
Why is she acting so sad?
A wistful look in her stare
When he returns, she’s not there
Selkie girl, cannot forget the sea
Selkie girl, longing to be free
Selkie girl, she will be no man’s wife
She’ll start a new life, start a new life
