She was drowned in suicide
Faithless lover cast aside
This is how she came to be
Lorelei of the sea

Hopes destroyed she wanted to find
Certain death peace of mind
Now you wonder who is she
Lorelei of the sea

Many tales I've been told
Of sailors having died
After seeing a mermaid known as
Lorelei

Faithless lover that is me
And she siren of the sea
Next time that the seagulls fly
Don't you cry sweet Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

The guilt is mine I was untrue
The question is what am I to do
All I know is I got to try
Try to find sweet Lorelei

Make amends for what's been done
Cause I believe that she's the one
And I will go where seagulls fly
Try to find sweet Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

There she is I hear her cry
Asking me if I will die
There ain't nothing I won't do
For you, Lorelei, Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
(oh, I'm coming for you)
For Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei

Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For Lorelei
(oh, I'm coming for you)

(oh, I'm coming for you)
