Song to the Siren

This song is by The Czars and appears on the album Sorry I Made You Cry (2005).

This song is a cover of "Song to the Siren" by Tim Buckley.
Long afloat, (on) shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
Till your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your aisle

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 dreamt about me?
Were you hare, when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning,
Broken lovelorn on you rocks

For you sing, "touch me not
Touch me not, come back tomorrow.
Oh my heart, oh my heart
Shies from the sorrow."

I'm as puzzled as the newborn child
I'm as riddled as the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers,
Or 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."
