LET ME UNFOLD YOU Grant from Adelaide, Australia sent in this beautiful piece of video of Tim Buckley singing ‘Song of the Siren’. I know I must have this song on The Stuff Page before, it is such a superb piece of song writing, but I have never seen this wonderful, self-effacing version. Just beautiful. Thank you, Grant. Love Susie x




Song of the Siren


Long afloat on 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 hare when I was fox?

But now my foolish boat is leaning

Broken lovelorn on your 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 oyster

I'm as troubled at 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

Oh my heart, oh my heart

Is waiting to hold you


Songwriters: Buckley Tim / Beckett Ralph Lawrence
