twisted fairytales: THE LITTLE MERMAID (modern sapphic au)
Bet'cha on land they understand,
Bet they don’t reprimand their daughters.
And she sighs, and she swoons, and she’s hummin’ little tunes, even has a sorta glow!
What on earth could it be?
Any hammerhead can see! That sigh! That glow! That swoon!
Oh, no! She’s in love!
Somewhere there’s a girl who’s like the shimmer of the wind upon the water,
somewhere there’s a girl who’s like the glimmer of the sunlight on the sea,
Somewhere there’s a girl who’s like a swell of endless music,
Somewhere she is singing and her song is meant for me!
And her voice! It’s warm as summer sky,
And that sound, it haunts my dreams, and spins me ‘round,
Until it seems I’m flying…
Poor unfortunate souls, in pain, in need,
This one longing to be thinner
That one wants to get the girl,
And do I help them? Yes, indeed!
Look at it all, hall after hall, perfect as you could please here!
Marvels galore, and even more, gee, did I mention she’s here?
And if - who knows? - all of it goes past even these extremes!
Just look at me and you will see someone beyond her wildest dreams!
Just let your emotions tell your body what to do, see how much a single gesture can reveal!
And every little step, every single step, is one step closer, to saying what you feel.
Sing with me now! Sha la la la la la, my oh my,
Look like the girl too shy ain’t gonna kiss the girl,
Sha la la la la la, ain’t that sad?
Ain’t it a shame? Too bad, she’s gonna miss the girl.
And at the ball, what will occur?
Maybe I’ll find that voice… But I’ll lose her!
But fathers have to learn their daughters have to grow,
And if you truly love them you must let them go…
And oh, I love you so, if only you could know….
You love her very much, don’t you?
And now at last, love has surpassed each tribulation!
Mermaid and woman finally can join and be one!
Now they can smile, walking the aisle, here at their wedding celebration!
Now they can be who their meant to be, now they can gaze on a new horizon!
Here between ocean and sky, forever and on!
Now they can walk, now they can run, now they can stay all day in the sun!
Just you and me,
And I will be,
Part of your world!
