musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Song To The Siren by This Mortal Coil

Song to the Siren is a song originally written and performed by Tim Buckley. It’s been covered by quite a few artists, but I first heard the cover by “This Mortal Coil” when watching the movie “The Lovely Bones”. Though it’s another song that hits me in the gut whenever I listen to it, it’s one of my favorites. I get quite obsessed with music from movies, especially emotional ones.

I hope you enjoy it!

 

Song To The Siren

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 here 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 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”
