"When Mermaids Cry"
by: Eagle Eye Cherry
>From the album "Desireless"

From: Axel Airiman
I've got the songtext from: www.lyrics.ch - Thanks :)


She was drowned in suicide faithless lover cast aside
Em      C
This is how she came to be Lorelei of the sea
Hopes destroyed she wanted to find certain death peace of mind
Em     C
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
So next time that the seagulls fly don't you cry sweet Lorelei

Seagulls fly when mermaids cry
Em           C
Those tears wont 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 to find sweet Lorelei
Make amends for what's been done cause I believe that she's the one
Try to find sweet Lorelei

[Repeat chours]

D   C
There she is I hear her cry
D     C
She's asking me if I will die

There ain't nothing I won't do for Lorelei
Seagulls fly when mermaids cry
Those tears wont dry for Lorelei

D:  (Sounds a little bit better than the ordinary D-cord)

B: 3
G: 0
