A selkie is a mythical creature resembling a seal in water but assuming a human form on land.


I am a Selkie in the waves you’ll catch me
Out beyond the frozen tide
I can see you’re far from home now
Come with me and sleep tonight

I know the coast and I know the tides
The underwater world below
Listen to these words I tell you
I will be your best guide

Once my pelt was in your hands
And I a prisoner of the land
Until I stole my soul back from you
Now I have the ocean wide

The weather’s gone fae bad tae worse
There’s nothing more to see but rain
You’d be best to heed my words
I’ll guide you to the light of day


from From The Skein, released June 10, 2016
Written by Jenny Sturgeon and featuring Jonny Hardie on guitar, Grant Anderson on double bass, Davy Cattanach on percussion, Rahul Ravindran on vocals, Jenny also plays shruti-box.
