Nick CaveStraight To You

All the towers of ivory are crumbling And the swallows have sharpened their beaks This is the time of our great undoing This is the time that I'll come running Straight to you For I am captured Straight to you For I am captured One more time The light in our window is fading The candle gutters on the ledge Well now sorrow, it comes a-stealing And I'll cry, girl, but I'll come a-running Straight to you For I am captured Straight to you For I am captured Once again Gone are the days of rainbows Gone are the nights of swinging from the stars For the sea will swallow up the mountains And the sky will throw thunder-bolts and sparks Straight at you But I'll come a-running Straight to you But I'll come a-running One more time Heaven has denied us it's kingdom The saints are drunk howling at the moon The chariots of angels are colliding Well, I'll run, babe, but I'll come running Straight to you For I am captured Straight to you For I am captured One more time
