Song of the Magician

While following ephemera rooted in Song Lyric Sunday, I re-discovered singer-songwriter Tim Buckley, father of singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley.

 

Song of the Magician

When I sing I can’t bring everything on the wing
Flying down from dizzy air
To the ground because I care
You will be love and your love will live
When I smile I beguile all the while every mile
As I walk across the sky
Of the clockwork of your eye
You will be love and your love will live
Casting spells from the well I can tell you the bells
Listen to my magic voice
Learn the tune of children’s toys
You will be love and your love will live
When I die do not cry hear my sigh passing by
After I have turned to win
I will try to help you then
You will be love and your love will live
Songwriters: Larry Beckett / Tim Buckley (1966)
