nick cave lyrics

work of art by Joseph Lorusso


“I don’t believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms…

… But I believe in love
And I know that you do too “

Nick Cave

My husband, of course, is a musician. It’s his job. So he is deep inside it, especially the writing of lyrics. The house is full of poetry and music, and I guess the ghostlike quality of his songwriting, the strange ethereal femininity of much of it, is a big inspiration. Maybe that was why he was attracted to me in the first place. He says I was floating around his songs long before he met me!
—  Susie Cave 

All the fine winds gone
And this sweet world is so much older
Animals pull the night around their shoulders
Flowers fall to their naked knees
Here I come now, here I come
I hear you been out there looking for something to love
The dark force that shifts at the edge of the tree
It’s alright, it’s alright
When you turn so long and lovely, it’s hard to believe
That we’re falling now in the name of the Anthrocene

Nick Cave - Anthrocene


there’s always something fucking miraculous about the imagery that nick cave uses. this song is especially timely, now that the whole planet is ravaged by natural diasasters.
