about

FEATURING SJ TUCKER AND SONJA DRAKULICH
TIM RAYBORN AND ALBERT ROBLES

The tale of the Melusine, half serpent,half woman. (Sometimes a mermaid). A tale of living between two worlds.

lyrics

Melusina, Melusina
Melusina, Melusina

Your longing is a bitter salt upon the sea
Your tears are drying crystalline between my toes
I want to touch you but I cannot see your face
Just your serpent’s tail slipping through to worlds I’ll never know

You seek the simple joys
You give the taste of something more
But oh, they can’t contain you
And you slip away in silence out beyond the door

Don’t let it slip away, don’t let it slip away

Melusina, Melusina
Melusina, Melusina

Melusina, I know you hunger to get through
But our slavery to reason does not welcome you
What mighty song is poised upon your lips
A pearl beyond all price at our fingertips

Through beauty and through sorrow
We crack the masks of certainty
We travel on, enraptured by the mystery
Our senses overcome with majesty

Don’t let it slip away, don’t let it slip away

Melusina, Melusina
Melusina, Melusina
