THE SIREN

He wrote her a song, but it never
got finished
They both fell in love but it was
soon diminished
She sits on his bed and cries in his
lap
He cries back at her, knowing they
can’t go back.
Hours go by and neither one can
accept
That by letting go they are doing
what’s best
At the end of the day, comes the
part which he fears
To let her go without shedding a
tear
Never again will he kiss her goodbye
And just that thought makes him
start to cry
Now he’ll finish that song, and he’ll
write it today
This is the start and here’s what it
says
“You are my siren, you drew me in
With a voice like an angel and the
softest skin
Your eyes shine like diamonds and
your smile melts my heart
I know that nothing could tear us
apart”
That’s what he wrote and let me just
say.
That he’d never do anything to
throw that away
But that’s not how it works, This
worlds bitter and harsh
And then something happened,
which drew them apart
An old boyfriend showed up and
that’s when he knew
That her feelings for him were not
shiny and new
This person left her and crushed her
heart
But she had loved him since the
very start.
When our boy came along she saw a
way
To end her pain and make it all go
away
But by loving this person through
thick and through thin
She looked at our boy and wished it
was him
Now this is where the second verse
starts
it’s about how she seemed to break
his heart
He found out her feelings, it went
straight to his head
so he carried on writing and here’s
what he said
You make me smile when no one
else can
It just makes me happy to be your
man
But it hurts me deeply that you long
for his heart
I Thought we would last but this
breaks us apart.
He sat in his room and just wished
he
Could be just like her ex so that
they could be
But as long as he was there they
could never be true
So he’d sit in his room feeling sad
and blue
Now comes the part where she’s
crying in his lap
They both just decided to never go
back
The pain is immense but it’s saving
his heart
Because staying with her would rip
him apart
Here’s where he decides to finish
the song
The story of how it all went wrong
He starts the last verse with tears
dripping off his nose
The papers all wet but here’s how it
goes.
You were my siren you drew me in
you taught me to love and you
taught me to sin
I never thought you could break my
heart
But I guess we were wrong right
from the start
You were my siren now I’m dead at
sea
you drew me in but you didn’t want
me
I just wish I knew where it all went
wrong
But now another lost sailor can hear
your song
