"Phantasmagoria In Two" as written by and Tim Buckley....
If a fiddler played you a song, my love
And if I gave you a wheel
Would you spin for my heart and loneliness
Would you spin for my love

If I gave up all of my pride for you
And only loved you for now
Would you hide my fears and never say
"Tomorrow I must go"

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear

If you tell me a lie I'll cry for you
Tell me of sin and I'll laugh
If you tell me of all the pain you've had
I'll never smile again

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear

I can plainly see that our parts have changed
Our sands are shifting around
Need I beg to you for one more day
To find our lonely love

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear

    General CommentHe's asking if she'll love him, will she take what he gives, will she stay forever, will she love him as he loves her? He's begging her to... but fears she won't. What a fantastic tune.

    General CommentLove it. Love his music. Such a great talent lost so young. This song has already been explained (well). It's about true love and fear of loss. Buckley's vocals were amazing. And thankfully they were passed to his talented son, also lost young. This track is Buckley's best, in my opinion. I listen to it almost weekly...
