Story Behind the Song

This was inspired by a short story I read about a mermaid.

Lyrics

HOW CAN I BE STILL?
By Tracy Scharf
©2006 born at eight music


An ancient comet rounds the sun
A thousand years returned
Beneath its tail a man sets sail
The fires inside him burn
Searching for his true love
He rides the seven seas
Singing, "How can I be still -
Until you're here with me?"


He met her on a distant shore
He loved her through the night
She sang to him a strange sweet song
And vanished with the light
No footsteps left upon the sand
No ripples on the sea
Singing, "How can I be still -
Until you're here with me?"


Five fathoms deep
The waters start to roll
Five fathoms deep
She answers - answers his call


Stars fall from the heavens
Gravity loses it's pull
Winds change direction
Lead him to the edge of the world
Where she comes rising from the waters
As he plunges to the sea
Crying, "How can I be still -
How can I be free?
When the ancient fires burn -
Burn inside of me?

How can I be still -
Until you're here with me?"
