Song to the Siren

This Mortal Coil

On the floating shapeless oceans
I did all my best to smile
Til your singing eyes & 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 love lost on your rocks
For you say: "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 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"
