    Default The Thread Wherein We Post A Line Or More From Nick Cave

    Tom Waits has one, Bob Dylan has one, so it's only fair that another one of the greatest, if not the greatest, songwriters has one.


    If you're in Heaven then you'll forgive me dear
    Because that's what they do up there
    If you're in Hell, what can I say?
    You probably deserved it anyway

    You really don't have to add the provision "if not the greatest."

    I think he's the greatest, but if I put that then the discussion would turn to people agreeing or disagreeing. So I left it somewhat neutral

    Brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

    I read her diary on her sheets
    scrutinizin' every little bit of dirt
    tore out a page and stuffed it inside my shirt
    Fled outta the window and shimmied down the vine
    out of her nightmare and back into mine

    And love followed just behind me, panting at my feet
    As the steeple tore the stomach from a lonely little cloud

    I like floating here, it's nice
    They've hung seaweed around my hips
    And I do the hula for the hungry ones
    With the lames, all throw me tips

    Lover, lover, goodbye
    So slowly goes the night
    Next to me lies your body plan
    Like a map of some forbidden land
    I trace the ghosts of your bones with my trembling hand

    So slowly goes the night
    Ten lonely days, ten lonely nights
    I watch the moon get flayed each night
    Until the moon becomes the skinning knife
    The skins of my sins, I send to cover and comfort you

    Come sail your ships around me
    And burn your bridges down
    We make a little history, baby
    Every time you come around

    Tree don't care what the little bird sings
    We go down with the dew in the morning light
    The tree don't know what the little bird brings
    We go down with the dew in the morning
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    well the moon it looked exhausted, like something you should pity
    spent an age spotted above the sizzling wires of the city
    and it reminded me of her face, those bleached and hungry eyes
    her hair was like a curtain, falling open with the laughter
    and closing with the lies

    Say farewell to the passing of the years, though all your sweet goodbyes will fall upon deaf ears.
    Kiss so softly the mouths of the ones you love, beneath the September moon and the heavens above.
    And the world will turn without you, and history will soon forget about you, but the heavens they will reward you, and the saints will be there to escort you.
    So faraway, so faraway and yet so close.
