Just like a buzzin' fly
I come into your life
Now I float away
Like honey in the sun
Was it right or wrong
I couldn't sing that song anyway

Oh, but darlin'
Now I remember
How the sun shone down
And how it warmed your prayin' smile
When all the love was there

You're the one I talk about
You're the one I think about
Everywhere I go
And sometimes honey
In the mornin'
Lord, I miss you so

That's how I know I found a home
That's how I know I found a home

Oh, hear the mountains singing
Lord, I can hear them ringing, darlin',
Out your name
And tell me if you know
Just how the river flows
Down to the sea

Now I wanna know
Everything about you
I wanna know
Everything about you

What makes ya smile
What makes ya wild
What makes ya love me this way
Darlin' I wanna know
Darlin' I wanna know

You're the one I talk about
You're the one I think about
Everywhere I go
And sometimes honey
In the mornin'
Lord, I miss you so

That's how I know I found a home
That's how I know I found a home

A-walkin' hand in hand
And all along the sand
A seabird knew your name
He knew your love was growin'
Lord, I think it knows it's flowin'
Thru you and me

Ah, tell me darlin'
When I should leave you,
Ah, tell me darlin'
I don't want to grieve you....

Just like a buzzin' fly
I come into your life
Now I float away
Like honey in the sun
Was it right or wrong
I couldn't sing that song anyway

Oh, but darlin'
Now I remember
How the sun shown down
And how it warmed your prayin' smile
When all the love was there

You're the one I talk about
You're the one I think about
Everywhere I go
And sometimes honey
In the mornin'
Lord, I miss you so....

    General CommentThis is my favourite Tim Buckley songs and one of my favourite songs of all. It's bittersweet and perfect.

    General CommentThis is a perfect song with beautiful lyrics. It captures the feeling of first being in love 'I think it knows it's flowing through you and me' - when everything seems invincible and it just radiates! It also has worry and a bit of doubt - 'tell me when I should leave you' and comfort - ' that's how I know I've found a home'. You can't artificially create these emotions - he must have felt these things all at the same time. Beautiful!
