(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.

(Main Riff) 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.

(Main Riff) 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.
