Fall Asleep
My mind slips through my ears
Falling onto ocean piers
The gulls bring me my rings
Whitecaps fill my heart with joy
As they bring me to my boy
And the mermaid sings

With our fingers interwound
Prepare to crash into the ground
He puts a crown upon my head
I trace the stilling waters
Swim and dance with all the otters
As I'm being tucked into bed
