Long distance callin' in the middle of a rainy night
So much static, hardly knew your voice
An' you've been cryin', want me to love you like I did before
Girl when it comes to you, you know I've got no choice

You put a storm inside me, I want to head for a safer harbor
They all tell me I should give you up, but no man coulda tried any harder
Feels like an odyssey that's never gonna reach an end
Every time I hear you callin' me, just want to feel you in my arms again

[Chorus]
Like a sailor to a siren, like a moth to a flame
I know your love might be the death for me, but I run to you just the same
Like a sailor to a siren, nothing's gonna keep us apart
Crashin' over the wreckage of all the sailor's broken hearts

Musta met you when we were livin' in another time
Had nothin' but the jealous gods to point our way
When men were sailors and a woman was a rocky shore
Wailin' like a siren leadin' him astray

I got another woman and I know you got another man
They all tell me I should give you up, but I don't think that any mortal can
Feels like an odyssey that's never gonna reach an end
Every time I hear you callin' to me, just want to feel you in my arms again

[Chorus]

Gonna abandon ship, steal you from the cliff
Take you to a place where the gods can't find us no more
Let the sailors listen to the sirens if they dare
Gonna be dancin' on the water, drownin' in your yellow hair

[Chorus: x2]
