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"

Ah, The Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil and Elizabeth Fraser's haunting vocals. This is one of those songs that will go into my TOP 12 COVID-19 Pandemic Playlist. Other Tracks will include Brian Eno - An Ending. There are others. Here they are, tell me what you think:


1. Leonard Bernstein - Beethoven's Symphony No. 07 Allegretto II
2. This Mortal Coil - Song to the Siren
3. Brian Eno - An Ending
4. The Cure - All Cats are Grey
5. Bauhaus - Bella Lugosi's Dead
6. Cocteau Twins - Fifty-Fifty Clown

15. Boris Brechja - Laura Korinth - Gravity (Original Long Mix) - Simply Enjoy - There is Light!!!


Go through them all in sequence - I hope you enjoy it. Tracks transcend from the dark to the light. I might add more, but this is the sequence that just emotionally got me through - well, all of this.

@Constructor Cadence on the original was kinda weird. It was almost an Irish funeral song. This makes it more "siren-like".

Constructor

WHY? WHY the f**K did they not just use the original?

Sendme Doge

I knew it as a techno song 20 years ago. But that scene just reminded me of it.
