Made my steps towards the water
where Undine last was seen
I was told that if you saw her
it should make you more naive
made my steps towards the shore
she calls her love at me
oh Undine so sweet and pure
make me more naive
o Undine, singing after me
o Undine, make me more naive

There were ropes around my wrist
the tide pulled at her hair
pulling her away from me
and me away from there
yes the water tried to take her
and it may pour on that night
but she fought herself against it
love in her had not yet died
o Undine, fight your way to me
o Undine, make me more make me more

You live for the sea
Undine, you live for the sea
you can not you can not
you can not you can not
you can not love me

It's cold there in the summer
so I took my coat and left
left Undine by the embers
that's all our fire had left
left Undine by the shore
when she sings her love at me
o Undine I shook and swore
I don't know
What this love is singing

You live for the sea
Undine You live for the sea
you can not you can not
you can not you can not
you can not love me

What's going on in there
what's going on in there
let me in

You live for the sea
Undine you live for the sea
you can not you can not love me
