(Main Riff)
D5                     D/C           D/B            D/Bb
You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
D5                     D/C           D/B            D/Bb
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

(guitar echoes bass)
        D5            D/C           D/B                  D/Bb
And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
        D5                 D/C           D/B            D/Bb
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
        D5              D/C             D/B            D/Bb
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
        D5                     D/C          D/B            D/Bb
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

        D5                  D/C   D/B                D/Bb
And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
        D5                  D/C              D/B           D/Bb
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
     D5               D/C           D/B               D/Bb
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
 D5                D/C           D/B             D/Bb
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

     D5          D/C          D/B              D/Bb
Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
        D5               D/C              D/B                D/Bb
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
      D5             D/C             D/B                D/Bb
With tales of brave Ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured
        D5                  D/C
By the sirens sweetly singing.

     D5          D/C          D/B                 D/Bb
The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
        D5               D/C             D/B              D/Bb
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
