" Secret of the Sea "  ….. Artist:  Anggun [Originally from Jakarta, now a citizen of France] This year, Anggun is representing France in the Eurovision-TV Song Contest … ” Secret of the Sea ” is from Anggun’s debut album (Circa 1997/8) …. Imagine, if you will, while listening to the lyrics, a Mermaid falling in love with a Sailor; then one day, the Sailor has to leave with his ship; the Mermaid then laments with these lyrics, hoping and waiting for the Sailor’s return:

Lyrics:
Callin ‘cross the blue
It’s all I do
One day you’ll come back to me
It’s a secret of the sea
I’ll always love you
Always
I see
Floating on the ocean
Somewhere under the sun
Your golden skin
In cypress and blue

I hear
Waves that come rolling in
Fleetness of wings
A sound is missing
A sign from you

Callin ‘cross the blue
It’s all I do
One day you’ll come back to me
It’s a secret of the sea
I’ll always love you
Always

I may never know
Where you did go
Whatever took you from here
On these currents that run deep
I’ll lways love you
Always
We would
Sail into that big sky
Forget about the time
On the wind we would ride
Watchin’ wild birds sweep and glide

I’ll linger just a little more
Drifting on a foreign shore
Spend my nights
Waiting out the tides

Callin ‘cross the blue
It’s all I do
One day you’ll come back to me
It’s a secret of the sea
I’ll always love you

I may never know
Where you did go
Whatever took you from here
On these currents taht run deep
I’ll always love you
Always
