1968 (i think..)
First heard this song on the 1969 album: Happy/Sad.
Released at the height of his popularity, Happy Sad was his highest charting album, reaching #81 in the US Pop albums chart, but Buckley's experimentation on this album would alienate some of the fanbase and his mainstream appeal he gained with Goodbye and Hello. However, this was only the beginning of Buckley's experimentation with sound and genre, and subsequent releases would further reduce his mainstream popularity and see his sales take a downturn. The closer of the album, "Sing a Song For You", is more similar to Buckley's work on Goodbye and Hello than to the songs on the rest of the album.
"In my heart is where I long for you In my smile I search for you
Each time you turn and run away I cry inside
My silly way, just too young to know any more
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/t/tim+buckley/sing+a+song+for+you_20137275.html ]
In my world the devil dances and dares
To leave my soul just anywhere,
Until I find peace in this world
I'll sing a song everywhere I can
Just too young to know any more
The wind covers me cold
The starry skies all around my eyes
Far behind the city moans
Well worthy of the people there
Oh, the psalms they love to hear
So let me sing a song for you
Just to help your day along
Let me sing a song for you
One I've known so very long
Oh, please could you find the time."
