Phantasmagoria in Two
Cover of Tim Buckley
Unreleased
Lyrics:
If a fiddler played you a song, my love
and if I gave you a wheel
Would you spin for my heart and loneliness
Would you spin for my love

If I gave up all of my pride for you
and only loved you for now
Would you hide my fears and never say
'Tomorrow I must go'

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear

If you tell me a lie I'll cry for you
Tell me of sin and I'll laugh
If you tell me of all the pain you've had
I'll never smile again

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear

I can plainly see that our parts have changed
Our sands are shifting around
Need I beg to you for one more day
to find our lonely love

Everywhere there's rain my love
Everywhere there's fear
Notes:
Originally performed by Jeffs father, Tim Buckley, in 'Goodbye and Hello' (1967). Jeff performed it live in his exhibition for Greetings From Tim Buckley, a tribute concert organized by Hal Willner that took place at St.Ann's Church, New York, on April 26 1991. As Jeff often bluntly refused to perform his fathers songs in his shows, it is suprising to find that the St Annes show was not the only appearance of a Tim Buckley song. (Jeff played 'Once I Was' by request, on 1995-05-10, Bluebird Theatre, Denver)
Known Performance:
91-04-26 St. Annes Church, Brooklyn Heights, New York, New York, America
