The bright blue sea in which they swam
Was so deep, so very, very deep
They held each other in eternal love
And swore their hearts they’d keep.
Down and down and down they swam
To a depth they couldn’t believe
Yet on they pressed as they both held hands
Leaving those at the surface to grieve.
But don’t be sad they beg of you
They’re happy and will never part
They swim now amongst the mermaids
Together with their joined lovers’ heart.
That we could all find a happiness
Of such depth that we’d give up all
For true love turns hearts into heroes
Whilst without love our lives remain small.
