In the cold cold wintersea

The ghostly fingers of nightly fog

Sweet lure of the black dark deep

The beast that watches from below 

In the cold cold wintersea

A boy, alone, in darkness caught 

The sweet scent of stark fear 

The Näkki waits to feast tonight

In the cold cold wintersea

The house a monster with empty eyes

Watching but never sees

Peeling paint and rotten wood 

In the cold cold wintersea

A quiet song, a melody, whispered on the wind 

The boy enthralled, in fog so lost 

To the lure of the black dark deep 

In the cold cold winter sea

The Näkki grips, long sea weed fingers hold so tight 

Little black dots is all theyll see 

On the body lost tonigth

In the cold cold wintersea

A gasp, a scream, a voice soon lost 

The boy is dragged below 

The beast will feast, the Näkki wins 

In the cold cold wintersea
