Song To The Siren
This Mortal Coil Lyrics


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 here when I was forced out
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"

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"

Soo beautiful 🥺🥺

Türkçe çevirisi:

Siren’e Şarkı 🧜🏻‍♀️

Gemisiz okyanuslarda uzun süredir
En iyi gülüşümü yapmaya çalıştım
Ta ki senin o şarkı söyleyen gözlerin ve parmakların
Beni adana aşkla sürükleyene kadar
Ve şarkı söyledin:
"Bana yelken aç, bana yelken aç
Seni sarmama izin ver
İşte buradayım, işte buradayım.
Seni sarmak için bekliyorum"

Beni hayal ettiğini mi hayal ettim ben?
Ben tam yelken açmışken burada mıydın?
Şimdi benim aptal gemim yan yatmış
Kırılmış terkedilmiş senin kayalıklarında:
"Dokunma bana, dokunma bana,
Yarın gel geri."
Diye şarkı söylediğin için
Ah kalbim,
Ah kalbim, üzüntüden çok ürkek

Yeni doğmuş bir çocuk gibi şaşkınım
Gelgit kadar muammalıyım
Dev dalgalar arasında ayakta durmalı mıyım?
Veya ölümle yatmalı mıyım, benim gelinim?
Duy benim söyleyişimi:
“Bana yüz, bana yüz
Seni sarmama izin ver
İşte buradayım , işte buradayım.
Seni sarmak için bekliyorum"

I played this song while my mom was dying. And then we played it again today at her funeral I'll forever love you Mom and Dad watch over me

Lisa, I understand what you've been through, but always remember that Death makes us invisible, but never “absent”

May they rest in peace, dear Lisa. We will meet again with our beloved ones, for nothing is ever lost in the universe, but all is out there to be found. In this life or another. Godspeed.

My name is August West

Elizabeth Fraser always had a voice out of time. A truly unreal vocalist at times. The Cocteaus are an all time band for me for sure.

Giovanna Benso

I am old enough and lucky enough: I listened to this song when it came out 💜 big fan of Cocteau Twins since Garlands

Jason Egeland

There's never enough to say of them.

Well I came here because I heard this on Marc Riley's show on 6Music
