Song to the Siren
Desde há vários anos que gosto desta música...Numa versão ligeiramente diferente dos "This Mortal Coil" (segundo video), não conhecia eu, a original :)

Long afloat on 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 love lost 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."

PS-Também me deixei encantar pelo canto da sereia :)
