about

Memory: I stood there and sang about sacrifice and how much was too much to give, just beginning to understand that the picture I was painting was my own.

Lesson: Tell your stories and sing your songs. They will find you.

lyrics

If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they're trying to get laid
If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

Heaven forbid they see me on the stage
As more than a girl from the center page
I'm more than the sum of my lady parts
That's not how we get to the top of the charts

If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they're trying to get laid
If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

You better run quick 'cause I'm burning this bridge
It's the first thing I did when I opened the fridge
The first thing I did was to take a deep breath
Then I let out the fire that burned in my chest

If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they're trying to get laid
If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

The sea is full of princes who can't swim
So tell me what's the point in learning to walk for them?
Oh, the sea is full of princes who can't swim
So tell me WTF's the point learning to walk for them?

Kick with your feet and I'm sure you'll be fine
I gotta go cuz I'm bringing the wine
I gotta go cuz they're waiting on me
Down where the party is under the sea

If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they're trying to get laid
If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
It's not because they think they got played

If I make 'em cry for the mermaid
I make 'em cry
