XTC – Mermaid Smiled lyrics
From pools of xylophone clear
From caves of memory
I saw the children at heart
That we once used to be
Borne on foaming seahorse herd
Compose with trumpeting shell
From lines across their hands
A song as new as new moon
As old as all the sands
Shrank to stagnant from Atlantic wild
Lost that child 'til mermaid
Smiled

Summoned by drum rolling surf
As laughing fish compel
The young boy woken in me
By clanging diving bell
Breakers pillow fight the shore
She wriggles free in the tide
I'm locked in adult land
Back in the mirror she slides
Waving with comb in hand
I was lucky to remain beguiled
Grown to child since mermaid
Smiled

    This gem was sent to me from an angel being from the you. K. He knew of my sons anniv. Date when he crossed/over at age 3; (1979) also my divorce decree went through that day and many more "i hated when that date came up. " this xtc tune was sent to me; he also knew my son went to a water universe where he became physical as a dolphin like being; and this whole songs lyrics makes me feel and see him in this beautiful place. Powerful and healing; each word I see J. W. Swimming with the mermaids. Chills and love flow from these lyrics from beyond; where all of these lyrics come from. Thanks for this place to read the lyrics; priceless site. Love nancy usa.
