Jesus alone - Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds


Binnenkort mag je op deze blog een uitgebreide review verwachten van het gisteren uitgebrachte nieuwe album van Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, intussen houden we je al zoet met deze fantastische single.

Je kan het album Skeleton tree hier kopen (en ik raad het je ten zeerste aan!)

Lyrics:

You fell from the sky
Crash landed in a field
Near the river Adur
Flowers spring from the ground
Lambs burst from the wombs of their mothers
In a hole beneath the bridge
She convalesce, she fashioned masks of clay and twigs
You cried beneath the dripping trees
Ghost song lodged in the throat of a mermaid


With my voice
I am calling you


You're a young man waking
Covered in blood that is not yours
You're a woman in a yellow dress
Surrounded by a charm of hummingbirds
You're a young girl full of forbidden energy
Flickering in the gloom
You're a drug addict lying on your back
In a Tijuana hotel room


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


You're an African doctor harvesting tear ducts
You believe in God, but you get no special dispensation for this belief now
You're an old man sitting by a fire, hear the mist rolling off the sea
You're a distant memory in the mind of your creator, don't you see?


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


Let us sit together until the moment comes


With my voice
I am calling you


Let us sit together in the dark until the moment comes


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you
