FOLLOW ME (THE SIRENS' SONG)
in which the Sirens of myth are depicted, luring sailors to their deaths.
Featuring Alexandra Bernard, Beth Kirkpatrick, and Eliza Poehlman.

lyrics

Lyrics:

SIRENS:
Follow me...
Follow me...

Follow me, I am Neptune’s heart
Follow me to oblivion
You mortal man in your oceanic reverie
I’ll wash your cares away
Let me wash your cares away, lover.

Follow me, I’m the oracle of death
Follow me to oblivion
You mortal man who would master the unconquerable sea
I’ll wash your cares away
Let me wash your cares away, lover.

I’ve seen all things
Which have come before
I’ve seen all things
Which have yet to be
You’ll find all you desire if you
Follow me
Follow me to oblivion
You mortal, mortal man

I’ll wash your cares away
Let me wash your cares away
Death comes sweetly
Death comes softly
Wash your cares away
Let me wash your cares away
Oh, sweetly
Oh, softly
Wash your cares away
Let me wash your cares away
Oh, sweetly
Oh, softly
Follow me
