song to the siren - lyrics by tim buckley/larry beckett

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 her 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"
well i'm puzzled as the newborn child
i'm riddled 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,
here i am, here i am,
waiting to hold you."
