about

A wistful and melancholy tribute, the title cover of the original Tim Buckley song, made famous by This Mortal Coil and featured in films such as David Lynch's Lost Highway, The Lovely Bones, and Candy, surely ranks among the best. Gorgeous acoustic guitar chords and melodies support soaring, acrobatic vocals and refreshingly simple, to-the-point lyrics in "I Miss You". And "Everything's Okay" is a true impressionist/expressionist painting in sound. The listener can practically see the piece, wet and dripping from the canvas. The deep vocals are absolutely chilling.

Track Name: Song To 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?
And 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 am puzzled as the newborn child
I am troubled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with death my bride?

Here me sing
“Swim to me
Swim to me
Let me enfold you”
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you
Track Name: I Miss You
I won't talk to you
'Cause you don't deserve me in your life
I won't talk to you
But I still wish I could be by your side

I miss you...

I try not to think of you
Just wanna move ahead
I try not to think of you
But sometimes you're all that's in my head

I miss you...

But by the time morning comes around
My head will be down from the clouds
Feet back on the ground
Yeah by the time morning comes around
All these feelings will be gone
And my thoughts will be sound

But for now I miss you...
Track Name: Everything's Okay
So many roads to see
All lead to something new
Won't bring you back to me
Won't bring me back to you

So many things to do
And all the time in the world
Now I can do them all

I have seen this through
And I can see the day
When I can't feel you
And everything's okay
