Tales of Brave Ulysses
Cream Lyrics


You thought the leaden winter
Would bring you down forever
But you rode upon a steamer
To the violence of the sun

And the colors of the sea
Blind your eyes with trembling mermaids
And you touch the distant beaches
With tales of brave Ulysses
How his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing
For the sparkling waves are calling you
To touch their white laced lips

And you see a girl?s brown body
Dancing through the turquoise
And her footprints make you follow
Where the sky loves the sea

And when your fingers find her
She drowns you in her body
Carving deep blue ripples
In the tissues of your mind

The tiny purple fishes
Run laughing through your fingers
And you want to take her with you
To the hard land of the winter

Her name is Aphrodite
And she rides a crimson shell
You know you cannot leave her
For you touched the distant sands

With tales of brave Ulysses
How his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing
Yeah

The tiny purple fishes
Run laughing through your fingers
You want to take her with you
To the hard land of the winter

You thought the leaden winter
Would bring you down forever,
But you rode upon a steamer
To the violence of the sun.

And the colours of the sea
Bind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches
With tales of brave Ulysses,
How his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing,
For the sparkling waves are calling
You to kiss their white laced lips.

And you see a girl's brown body
Dancing through the turquoise,
And her footprints make you follow
Where the sky loves the sea.
And when your fingers find her,
He drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples
In the tissues of your mind.

The tiny purple fishes
Run laughing through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you
To the hard land of the winter.

Her name is Aphrodite
And she rides a crimson shell,
And you know you cannot leave her
For you touched the distant sands
With tales of brave Ulysses,
How his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing.

The tiny purple fishes
Run lauging through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you
To the hard land of the winter.

For me, the best song of Cream. I'm sorry for Sunshine of your Love. Tales of Brave Ulysses is the perfect combination between great music, and Deep psychedelic poetry.

Sounds similar to "White Room ".

Damien Williams

Fucking lyrics make no sense whatsoever but the music carries it
