  • tim buckleyin 67 çıkışlı goodbye and hello albümünde yer alan iç burkan parça.
  • o i never asked to be your mountain
    i never asked to fly
    remember when you came to me
    and told me of his lies
    you didn't understand my love
    you don't know why i try
    and the rain was falling on that day
    and damn the reason why

    the flying pisces sails for time
    and tells me of my child
    wrapped in bitter tales and heartache
    he begs for just a smile
    o he never asked to be her mountain
    he never asked to fly
    and through his eye he comes his love
    and tells her not to cry

    she says, "your scoundrel father flies
    with a dancer called a queen
    and with her stolen cards he plays
    and laughs, but never wins"
    o the child dreams to be his hands
    in the counting of the rain
    but only barren breasts he feels
    for her milk will never drain

    as i die i can't remember
    where i saw the rain:
    could it be that her laughter
    drove me down again?
    charming dancer will you stop,
    stop and talk to me?
    is there someone else you feel
    in your dreams? you will, you see:
    in midnight gazes
    i've found you far from me:
    if you lead me on
    please leave me down

    o flying flying fish
    please flutter by my door:
    yes you can drink my lies
    if first you read my eyes:
    each one is titled
    "i'm drowning back to you":
    i can't swim your waters
    and you can't walk my lands:
    i'm sailing all my sins
    and i'm climbing all my fears
    and soon now i'll fly

    o i never asked to be your mountain
    i never asked to fly
    remember when you came to me
    and told me of his lies
    you didn't understand my love
    you don't know why i try
    and the rain was falling on that day
    and that's the reason why

    sweet lover, will you come back
    and love me for a while?
    please take my hand
    leave all your fears behind

    i've been gone too long
    now i'm home to stay
    please don't leave me
    again this way

    please come home
  • goodbye and hello'nun herbiri birbirinden güzel şarkılarından biri. jeff buckley yıllar önce babasının bir kilisede düzenlenen anma gecesinde pek güzel yorumlamıştır bunu. sondaki "please come home" cümlesi yakarıştan sayıklamalı bir iniltiye evrilerek insanı kahreder.
  • tim buckley bu şarkıyı terkettiği eşi ve oğlu jeff için yazmış.
  • bazı zamanlar, açılan yarayı iyileştirmenin en iyi yolu, içine parmağı daldırıp kurşunu çıkarıp, dağlamaktır.
    çok acıtır esnasında, ama geçirecektir zamanla.
    bu şarkı bu işe yarıyor tam olarak, yarayı deşiyor, deşiyor, acıtıyor. ama biliyorum ki iyileştirecek bir zaman sonra.
