When Mermaids Cry Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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
And 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, it was untrue, the question is what am I to do
All I know is I've got to try, try to find sweet Lorelei
Make amends for what's been done 'cause I believe that she's the one
Then 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 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
