lyrics

Eshkol, I'm tired he said
Eshkol, I'm leaving you now
I could rail to the sky that my life is unfair
but a child of the Yew Clan must never despair
a sea-faring Satyr must never despair

The selkie was mine as I grew from a maid
for seven sweet years we loved unafraid
but all sweet things end,
no matter how well they are made
I treasured his sweetness as he treasured me
and now I have naught but a life on the sea
A forest girl takes to a life on the sea?

Eshkol, I'm tired he said
Eshkol, I'm leaving you now
I railed to the trees that my life was unfair
but a child of the Yew Clan must never despair
a seafaring satyr must never despair!

I've taken his skin and I've given it back
His body is gone but his lesson will stay
I took a chance on his leaving dance
now I leave with every wave
I am leaving on every sweet ocean wave
So yes, a satyr will take to the sea
I'll treasure my story as he treasured me
with a fox girl for Captain I'll take to the sea!

Eshkol, I'm tired, he said.
Eshkol, I'm leaving you now
I railed to the trees that my life was unfair
but I'm blessed by the sun and the salt in my hair
A seafaring satyr must never despair

I treasured his body
I treasured his skin
He taught me of leaving, and so I begin
Now I've the power of leaving
and I'm leaving on every wave
Stride from the ashes, I will,
Stride to the docks, head held high
Rejoice in the scent of the sea on the air
for a seafaring satyr must never despair
A seafaring satyr must never despair!

Now I've the power of leaving
and I'm leaving on every wave
