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.
