"Song To The Siren" as written by and Larry Beckett Tim Buckley....
(Tim Buckley cover)


On the floating, shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me, loving, to your isle

And you sang, "Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you"

Here I am
Here I am waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was full sail?
Now my foolish boat lingers
Broken, lovelorn on your rocks

And you said, "Touch me not
Touch me not
Come back tomorrow"

Oh my heart
Oh my heart shies from the sorrow

Well I'm as puzzled as a newborn child
I'm as riddled as the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with death my bride?

And you sang, "Swim to me
Swim to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am, waiting to hold you"
