Song to the siren / Lyrics Tim Buckley

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
‘Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fucked up?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
ummmmm mmmmm mmm…

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am as troubled as the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing, “Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you:
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you”
And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you
