Valentine’s Day 1947-29th June 1975
Excerpts from various Tim Buckley songs:
- “Once I was a lover, and I searched behind your eyes for you. Soon there will be another, to tell you I was just a lie.”
- “I lit my purest candle close to my,Window, hoping it would catch the eye, Of any vagabond who passed it by, And I waited in my fleeting house”
- “Oh the time it takes ,It takes to heal,Lord I don’t understand the reason why
It goes this far along ,But I know I would never believe,That you ever lose
A single thing ,As long as you remember,As long as you have your dreams
It all stays with you.”
Tim Buckley-Dream Letter
Lady time, fly away.
I’ve been thinkin’
‘Bout my yesterdays.
Oh please, listen darlin’
To my empty prayer:
Sleep inside my dreams tonight.
All I need to know tonight,
How’re you and my child?
Oh is he a soldier or is he a dreamer?
Is he mama’s little man?
Does he help you when he can?
Oh does he ask about me?
Ah just like a soldier boy, Ah but I fight in wars
The world never knows about
Oh but I never win them loud
Oh there’s no crowds around me
When I get to thinkin’ about the old days
When love was here to stay
I wonder if we’d ever tried.
Oh what I’d give to hold you.
