prisms of a sharp mind... voices who are dreams calendar singular deepest flower up comes yesterday up comes yesterday buries a tomorrow buries a tomorrow
Oooo, another forgotten gem - Exhaling a Red Soul
...crumpled collapses into the dark
xhalingaredsoul
xhalingaredsoul
Oooo, another forgotten gem
On the floating, shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
til your singing eyes and fingers
drew me loving into your eyes.
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 sang, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow."
Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow.
I'm as puzzled as a newborn child.
I'm as riddled as the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or shall 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."

Song to the Siren ~ This Mortal Coil


Another group discovered in college. (The song was actually written by Tim Buckley.) It's so disgustingly, tragically romantic. Definitely swoonworthy. *sigh* You must listen to this song, if at all possible by candlelight, drinking a glass of your preferred red, and smoking a cigarette.

Seriously though, everyone must hear this song so please go here and click on the fourth picture from the left on the bottom of the screen which should bring you to a track listing for It'll End In Tears. Just click on Song to the Siren.

Well crap. I just listened myself and it's not the whole song. Oh well. At least you get the idea.

That is GORGEOUS. I thought when I first started reading it was a poem, until I read further down and you said it was a song, which basically says everything. *makes note of it* and determines to look up on Rhapsody and/or buy some music by them. And btw-I'm semi-back from my hiatus. :D

That song is supa good :) I can't say that I like everything from This Mortal Coil, but I can enjoy most when I'm in a certain mood. But Song to the Siren is an amazing song. It was one of those songs that the moment I first heard it I knew that I loved it. My only problem with it is that it's far, far too short. You should definitely check it out. If you like them, then check out the Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance (both groups who've had members collaborate on the This Mortal Coil project - Elizabeth Fraser is a Goddess, Lisa Gerrard is pretty amazing too-she sang on Song to the Siren. I have to say though that I much prefer Cocteau Twins to Dead Can Dance. Just my preference).

I'm back as well. Life has moved quickly and yet I don't feel that I've really moved anywhere. I'm sure I'll elaborate on this more later. Anywho, have a funky New Year!
