Tim Buckley: The Fantastic Voyage of a Starsailor

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 22 December 1979

"I'm as puzzled as the newborn child

I'm as riddled as the tide

Should I stand amid the breakers

Or should I die with death my bride?

Come hear me sing,

Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you,

Here I am, hear I am, waiting to hold you." '

('Song To The Siren')
