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 ?
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 oyster
I am troubled as the tide
Should I stand amid your 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'
(Monkees TV Show 1968)
Tim Buckley - The River
Birth name Jeffrey Scott Buckley
Also known as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead
Born November 17, 1966
Orange, California, United States
On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4. Buckley went swimming in Wolf River Harbor,a slack water channel of the Mississippi River, while wearing boots and all of his clothing and singing the chorus of the song "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. Buckley had gone swimming there several times before. A roadie in Buckley's band, Keith Foti, remained onshore. After moving a radio and guitar out of reach of the wake from a passing tugboat, Foti looked up to see that Buckley had vanished.
One-time friend Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins wrote lyrics to the Massive Attack song "Teardrop", thinking of Buckley's death, stating: "That was so weird ... I'd got letters out and I was thinking about him. That song's kind of about him – that's how it feels to me anyway."
the 20th anniversary of Jeff Buckley's death is coming up fast and furious. Cornell showed he was clearly still haunted by Buckley's passing when he brought the late singer's old landline phone onstage with him during his 2011 acoustic solo tour.
