Originally performed by 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.anns church, new york, on april 26 1991.
Oh 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 didnt understand my love
You dont 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
Oh 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
Oh 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 cant 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
Ive found you far from me
If you lead me on
Please leave me down

Oh flying flying fish
Please flutter by my door
Yes you can drink my lies
If first you read my eyes
Each one is titled
Im drowning back to you
I cant swim your waters
And you cant walk my lands
Im sailing all my sins
And Im climbing all my fears
And soon now Ill fly

Oh 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 didnt understand my love
You dont know why I try
And the rain was falling on that day
And thats the reason why

Sweet lover, will you come back
And love me for a while?
Please take my hand
Leave all your fears behind

Ive been gone too long
Now Im home to stay
Please dont leave me
Again this way

Please come home.
