Under the Waves

by Don Paris Schlotman



A love song from the ocean, tempting someone to come in and drown. The lyrics are loosely based on the Song of Solomon.


Let the brine kiss thee like the strongest wine
“Take me away in you,” she cried
Rejoice and delight in this night
Til dark and lovely jewels glitter the tide

“Arise my beautiful one
Now the winter rains are over and done.”
And now we must face the dawn
Pale like the moon, bright like the sun

With this salt I thee wed
An ancient red dowry
My left arm is under your head
While your right arm doth embrace me

Even the carrion birds have flown
Dark and lovely jewels litter their graves
A silver and blue chariot is drawn
Bright like the sun under the waves

Under the waves
Step into my water
There to give you my love
Under the waves!
Bright like the sun
Under the waves
