Song To The Siren Lyrics

On the floating, ship less oceans
I did all my best to smile
Till 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

Then I dreamed, you dreamed about me
Were you here when I was for sail?
(Was for sail)
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks

For you sang, "Touch me not
Touch me not, come back tomorrow"
Ohh my heart, ohh my heart
Shies from the sorrow

When 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

And she is there waiting to hold you. This makes me think of my sister too. It is brave for you to reach out. Thank you. Those of us who have been through the unthinkable continue to light the path for each other so we can find them again.

my sister suicided in 1982 and I was having so many dreams at the time. This version of the song gave voice to all my feelings and to my dreams. Even today all these years laterI am transported to her

For me, it revives all memories of my loved ones. whom I never want to lose. Maybe someday when I will be old, sitting on an easy chair with my Memories all lost, I Will be happy if someone plays this song for me.

I was not familiar with this song until I heard it done by Alfie Boe and Robert Plant on Alfie's latest CD. With those two voices it has to be the most hauntingly beautiful song I have ever heard.

On a live version, she clearly says 'Were you here when I was flotsam?' (Flotsam: debris floating after a shipwreck. Also, something discarded)

If you close your eyes, in a silenced room and listen to the cry in her voice.. You will be moved to a place like no other. She truly is, the voice of an angel

This song, it's like a healing song for me.. My little cousin drowned last winter. I'm always waiting to hold him again.
