Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Nobody’s Baby Now

I’ve searched the holy books
Tried to unravel the mystery of Jesus Christ, the saviour
I’ve read the poets and the analysts
Searched through the books on human behaviour
I travelled the whole world around
For an answer that refused to be found
I don’t know why and I don’t know how
But she’s nobody’s baby now

I loved her then and I guess I love her still
Hers is the face I see when a certain mood moves in
She lives in my blood and skin
Her wild feral stare, her dark hair
Her winter lips as cold as stone
Yeah, I was her man
But there are some things even love won’t allow
I held her hand but I don’t hold it now
I don’t know why and I don’t know how
But she’s nobody’s baby now

This is her dress that I loved best
With the blue quilted violets across the breast
And these are my many letters
Torn to pieces by her long-fingered hand
I was her cruel-hearted man
And though I’ve tried to lay her ghost down
She’s moving through me, even now
I don’t know why and I don’t know how
But she’s nobody’s baby now

Fever Ray – When I Grow Up

When I grow up
I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That’s what I’ll do
Throwing out a boomerang
Waiting for it to come back to me

When I grow up
I want to live near the sea
Crab claws and bottles of rum
That’s what I’ll have
Staring at the seashell
Waiting for it to embrace me

I put my soul in what I do
Last night I drew a funny man
With dark eyes and a hanging tongue
It goes way bad
I never liked a sad look
From someone who wants to be loved by you

You’ve got cucumbers on your eyes
Too much time spent on nothing
Waiting for a moment to arise
The face in the ceiling
And arms too long
I wait for him to catch me

Waiting for it to embrace me

The Lumineers – Stubborn Love

She’ll lie and steal, and cheat, and beg you from her knees
Make you think she means it this time
She’ll tear a hole in you, the one you can’t repair
But I still love her, I don’t really care

When we were young, oh, oh, we did enough
When it got cold, ooh, ooh, we bundled up
I can’t be told, ah, ah, it can’t be done

It’s better to feel pain, than never feel at all
The opposite of love’s indifference
So pay attention now, I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

So keep your head up, keep your love
Keep your head up, my love
Keep your head up, keep your love

And I don’t blame you dear for running like you did all these years
I would do the same, you’d best believe
And the highway signs say we’re close but I don’t read those things anymore
I never trusted my own eyes

When we were young oh, oh, we did enough
When it got cold, ooh, ooh we bundled up
I can’t be told, ah, ah, it can’t be done

So keep your head up, keep your love
Keep your head up, my love
Keep your head up, keep your love
Head up, love
Head up, love
Head up, love
Head up, love

UNKLE – Lonely Soul

God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls
Yeah, yeah
I believe there’s a time and a place
To let your mind drift and get out of this place
I believe there’s a day and a place
That we will go to, and I know you want to share.
There’s no secret to living (There’s no secret to living)
Just keep on walking
There’s no secret to dying (There’s no secret to dying)
Just keep on flying.
I’m gonna die in a place that don’t know my name
I’m gonna die in a space that don’t hold my fame.
God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls.
I believe there’s a time when the cord of life
Should be cut, my friends (Cut the cord, my friend)
I believe there’s a time when the cord can be cut
And this vision ends (Let this vision end).
But I’m gonna die in a place that don’t know my name
And I’m gonna cry in a space that don’t hold my fame.
Walking in the cold
Just keep on flying
There’ll be a searchlight
On the mountain high
God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls
God knows you’re lonely souls
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I’m a lonely soul.
I’m gonna die in a place that don’t know my name
I’m gonna die in a place that don’t know my name.
God knows you are lonely souls
Lonely souls
Lonely souls
Lonely souls
I’m a lonely soul.
So long, little chapel
Pack up your light
Pack up your light
Say goodbye to the holy water life
Ohhh…..
Ahhh…..

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – Will You Smile Again

Close the door and drift away
Into a sea of uncertainty
Where all your hopes and dreams
Have faded out of reach
Remember all the bad dreams
Are not far from reality
Would you write again for me?

(let me whisper something in your ear).

And you awake and there you are
Not far off from the line before
And just how long did it take for you to understand
Where your feelings stopped and writing began
Convince yourself to take control
Play to the hilt this unlikely role

Remember all the bad dreams
Are not far from reality
Would you write again for me?
And who bade you stop this living art?
Have you forgotten just what you are?
If you don’t want to then you could at least pretend
That the paper’s your soul and your blood’s the pen
And maybe then you’d see the light
And read the truth that you had to write

If heaven sent you downstream
Where banished eyes haven’t been
Would you smile again for me?
You misread your fate line
Had long run out ahead of time
Would you write again for me?

And you awake and there you are
Not far off from the line before
And just how long did it take for you to understand
Where your feelings stopped and writing began
Convince yourself to take control
Play to the hilt this unlikely role

If heaven sent you downstream
Where banished eyes haven’t been
Would you smile again for me?
