Far From Me

FarFromMe

CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO LISTEN TO FAR FROM ME – NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS

For you dear, I was born
For you I was raised up
For you I’ve lived and for you I will die
For you I am dying now
You were my mad little lover
In a world where everybody fucks everybody else over
You who are so far from me
Far from me
So far from me
Way across some cold neurotic sea
Far from me

I would talk to you of all matter of things
With a smile you would reply
Then the sun would leave your pretty face
And you’d retreat from the front of your eyes
I keep hearing that you’re doing best
I hope your heart beats happy in your infant breast
You are so far from me
Far from me
Far from me

There is no knowledge but i know it
There’s nothing to learn from that vacant voice
That sails to me across the line
From the ridiculous to the sublime
It’s good to hear you’re doing so well
But really can’t you find somebody else that you can ring and tell
Did you ever
Care for me?
Were you ever
There for me?
So far from me

You told me you’d stick by me
Through the thick and through the thin
Those were your very words
My fair-weather friend
You were my brave-hearted lover
At the first taste of trouble went running back to mother
So far from me
Far from me
Suspended in your bleak and fishless sea
Far from me
Far from me

  1. Heeeey, I have nominated you for The One Lovely Blog Award. I bet you are quivering in excitement… or perhaps you might be hitting your head against a wall repeating the phrase “Not another award, not another award!” You don’t have to accept this award, but I would love for you to pop over to my blog and come celebrate! There will be imaginary champagne, disco balls and a drumming cat! What more could one want? Hehe. .

    • Yes… Nick Cave does this, expressing feelings we all have experienced, or that will be experienced, with the right imaginary, the proper words… So even if the lyrics are detached from the songs, they become poems: adult independent pieces…
      The pictures was taken, as many others I have been showing in the last weeks, in Maitencillo. I don’t know if you can practice scuba there but still, you would have a great fun in this Pacific Ocean! 🙂
