"Sirensong" as written by Robert James Smith, Jason Toop Cooper, Simon Gallup and Porl Thompson....
It could've been her golden hair
That turned my head
I didn't look to stare
Like I was hypnotized
But I was fixed
On how she pointed slowly down
And low I sank
And still without a sound
The world was far away
And I was tricked

It could've been her silver skin
That drew me on
I didn't mean to spin
Like I was mesmerized
But I was rapt
Without a name or memory
I waited there
Too scared to even breathe?

She sang, she sang, she sang

She sang
"Tell me you love me
And beg me to stay"
She sang
"Tell me you love me
Before it's too late"
She sang
"Give me your life
Or I must fly away
And you will never hear this song again"

It could've been her crystal eyes
That made me stop
I didn't want to sigh
Like I was stupefied
But I was thrown
And at that point of no return
My whole life hanging
On a single word
To be hers evermore
Or mine alone

She sang, she sang, she sang

    General Comment"Give me your life
    Or I must fly away
    And you will never hear this song again" ..again...

    That's the most delicious 4 bars of music I ever heard.

    Particularly the way it so gracefully resolves as he sings "...again." Diving right back in without so much as a ripple.... it's gone as soon as it appears...

    And then after it, you want to hear it again... and you wait for it... and it's coming... and it's coming... and then !!! AAAHHHHHWWWW!!!!!! It's not there this time!!! He ends it literally high and dry!!!

    That dirty siren....

    And so you're left in suspense until the next time you decide to play the song.

    General CommentIt's basically someone so wanting to be together and wishing the other one felt the same, but like many of his songs, he doesn't care and is stuck thinking: shall i lie and tell her will lvoe her forever? sometimes he gets in the game and deceives her, and sometimes shocks her as she's innocnet so he can get rid of her, sometimes wants perhaps to abuse her and in the end, he tells her to fuck off. If she dont' get the message that he basically either hates or despises her, which sounds like that to me, then wot?

    General CommentThe narrator feels intense passion and admiration for this girl but his feelings might be short lived or fading. I get the feeling that he has not yet said, "I love you" to the girl which she is yearning for.
