    "Neptune's Daughter" Lyrics

    The Divine Comedy

    When the last course has been consumed
    They withdraw to the drawing room
    Where the Schubert she plays with style
    Keeps her friends happy for the while
    But the memories are a burden,
    So she draws back both the curtains
    Stepping out into the night

    As the glow from the house recedes
    And their voices blend with the breeze
    She is free to be who she will
    Free to skip barefoot down the hill

    Maybe she is Neptune's daughter
    For she's drawn towards the water
    Stepping out into the night

    The water cold against her skin
    Conceals a multitude of sins
    And laughing like a little girl
    She enters an enchanted world
    Where seaweed girls with silver tails
    Play games upon the backs of whales
    They want her to come home with them
    They grab her legs and drag her
    Down again, down again
    Into the sea he strides
    And takes her in his arms
    And he carries her back to shore
