When Mermaids Cry Chords
G                           G
She was drowned in suicide faithless lover cast aside
Em                          Am
This is how she came to be Lorelei of the sea

G                                  G
Hopes destroyed she wanted to find certain death peace of mind
Em             C          Am
Now you wonder who is she Lorelei of the sea

G                            Em
Many tales I've been told of sailors having died
C                            Am
after seeing a mermaid known as Lorelei

G                             G
Faithless lover that is me and she siren of the sea
Em                                  C
So next time that the seagulls fly don't you cry sweet Lorelei

G               C
Seagulls fly when mermaids cry
Am                       C
Those tears wont dry for Lorelei

G-Am   Em-D   Am-C     C
Ah-Ah  Ah-Ah  Ah-Ah-ah AH

G                                  G
The guilt is mine I was untrue the question is what am I to do
Em               C           Am               
All I know is I got to try, try to find sweet Lorelei

G                               Em
Make amends for what's been done cause I believe that she's the one
Am                                C
And I will go where seagulls fly, try to find sweet Lorelei

G               C
Seagulls fly when mermaids cry
Am                       C
Those tears wont dry for Lorelei

G-Am   Em-D   Am-C     C
Ah-Ah  Ah-Ah  Ah-Ah-ah AH

D            C
There she is I hear her cry
D                  C
She's asking me if I will die

D                   C          Am      C         Em
There ain't nothing I won't do for you Lorelei, Lorelei

Repeat Chorus
And Enjoy!

About the artist behind When Mermaids Cry Chords:

Eagle-Eye Lanoo Cherry (born 7 May 1971, in Stockholm, Sweden) is an American-Swedish musician. He is the son of jazz artist Don Cherry, brother of Neneh Cherry, uncle of Naima and granduncle of Louis Clyde Flynn Love.

As children, Eagle-Eye and his older sister Neneh Cherry spent months on the road with their father, the trumpeter Don Cherry, acquiring an early taste for tour buses and the nomadic lifestyle of working musicians. At the age of 12, Eagle-Eye was sent to school in New York, where he stayed on to work as an actor and a drummer in various bands. In 1993 he starred on the short lived NBC action/adventure television show "South Beach (1993 TV series)". It was not until 1996 that he returned to Sweden to begin writing and making his debut album, Desireless, which became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998-1999.

Eagle-Eye has also had his music featured on Santana's Supernatural album as well as in films such as Wim Wenders' "The Blues", "Y Tu Mama Tambien", "The Love Of The Game", "GO", "Best Laid Plans", "Holes" and "Over Her Dead Body". Some of his most known songs include "Save Tonight", "Falling In Love Again", "Are You Still Having Fun", "Long Way Around" "Feels So Right, "Skull Tattoo" and "Don't Give Up".

Eagle-Eye is recording his fourth studio album, which is due for release in 2008.
