Curved border of brown dragons.

Sedna

Lyrics & Music: Maureen S. O'Brien (Musicon '95)
Insp: Eskimo mythology

CH:
Sedna,
Come to me.
I'll give you sealskins
And an ivory comb.
Sedna,
In the sea
I am singing
To bring you home.

Why stay here
Up on the surface
Where the winds of winter blow?
Come with me
Under the ocean.
Leave the snow, and go below.

CH:

Why stay here
And lose your beauty
To the years of sun and cold?
Come with me
And live forever --
Years untold won't make you old.

CH:

Why stay here?
This land is barren,
While the waves are full of life.
Come with me
Where whales are dancing.
Be my wife. Come be my wife.

CH:
