"Song to the Siren (Tim Buckley cover)" as written by and Larry Beckett 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

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 is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,

For you sing,
"Touch me not, touch me not,
Come back tomorrow.
O my heart, O my heart
Shies from the sorrow"

I am puzzled as the oyster
I am troubled at the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with Death my bride?

Hear me sing,
"Swim to me, Swim to me,
Let me enfold you.
O my heart, O my heart,
Is waiting to hold you"
