Use a capo on the first fret. This is my own interpretation of the David Gray 
cover of Tim Buckleys Song to the Siren featured on David Grays live Album A 
thousand miles behind. Enjoy :)

A             Cm         
Long afloat on shipless oceans
D            Fm/E
I did all my best to smile
A               Cm
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
D               Fm/E
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
              Cm              D
Waiting to hold you, Waiting to ho......ld you

A               Cm
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
D                    Fm/E
Were you here when i was full sail
A            Cm
Now my foolish boat is leaning 
D              Fm/E
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
A            G             Fm                         A
For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
Fm                  A                Cm               D
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow" 

A           Cm
I am puzzled as the newborn child
D           Fm/E
I am troubled at the tide
A          Fm/E
Should I stand amid the breakers?
D               Fm/E
Should I lie with Death my bride?
A          G             Fm                         A 
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you
Fm                  A              Cm       D
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you"
