Shallow

He didn’t have scales.
Love like that won’t fail.
Let the feelings flow deep.
No, don’t try to keep me away.

He saw me one night.
Under full-blown moonlight.
Said you’re such a pretty girl.
You’re out of this world.

Never heard other words.

Guess I’m shallow.
No, don’t like deep water.
I dream of spray on the sand.
A boy holding my hand.
I promise, I’m shallow.
One look, boy you’ve got her.
No need to wonder.
You’ve pulled me under.

He made a promise, or something.
Cheap, tiny ring.
Told me one day
We could live
A life of better things.
Let’s go live and love deep.

So I went up one night.
Kept my tail out of sight.
That’s when I saw her.
Standing with him by the water.
He gave her a ring.
Big shiny thing.
Said let’s go live and love deep.

Let the waves crash over them.
Summoned the  lightning and thunder.
Let the tide swallow him under.

Yes,¬† I’m shallow.
No, don’t like deep water.
I dream of spray on the sand.
A boy holding my hand.
I promise, I’m shallow.
One look, boy you’ve got her.
No need to wonder.
Why I pulled you under.
