XTC - Mermaid Smiled Lyrics

From pools of xylophone clearFrom caves of memoryI saw the children at heartThat we once used to beBorne on foaming seahorse herdCompose with trumpeting shellFrom lines across their handsA song as new as new moonAs old as all the sandsShrank to stagnant from atlantic wildLost that child 'til mermaidSmiledSummoned by drum rolling surfAs laughing fish compelThe young boy woken in meBy clanging diving bellBreakers pillow fight the shoreShe wriggles free in the tideI'm locked in adult landBack in the mirror she slidesWaving with comb in handI was lucky to remain beguiledGrown to child since mermaidSmiled
