I really love you and I mean you...

I can imagine when Syd Barret sings a song like Terrapin strumming his guitar, people couldn't be able to stop and listen to him.

Even most of the time his lyrics are cryptic, full of metaphors..

He's playing with words and their sound on his songs as well as the meaning..

like a child's game...

Syd is my favorite bizarre crazy artist ever.. along with Salvador Dali… Sometimes they are blamed for trying to make a fool out of everyone... but I don't think they were doing that, they were exploring through expression..

Time puts everyone on its place... and after all these years, the legend over him has never diminished... even he choose to retire from public eye and stopped giving interviews long ago..

He died as a regular guy three years ago... but his contribution in taking pop music and present it as a supreme art form is far from being ordinary..



I really love you and I mean you
The star above you, crystal blue
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

I wouldn’t see you and I love to
I fly above you, yes I do
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

Floating, bumping, noses dodge a tooth
The fins aluminous fangs all ’round
The clam is dark below the boulders hiding all
The sunlight’s good for us

’cause we’re the fishes and all we do
The move about is all we do
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

Floating, bumping, noses dodge a tooth
The fins aluminous fangs all ’round
The clam is dark below the boulders hiding all
The sunlight’s good for us

’cause we’re the fishes and all we do
The move about is all we do
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

I really love you and I mean you
The star above you, crystal blue
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...
