Lanegan, Mark - Brompton Oratory Lyrics

Up those stone steps I climb
Hail this joyful day's return
Into its great shadowed vault I go
Hail the Pentecostal morn

The reading is from Luke 24
Where Christ returns to his loved ones
I look at the stone apostles
Think that it's alright for some

And I wish that I was made of stone
So that I would not have to see
A beauty impossible to define
A beauty impossible to believe

A beauty impossible to endure
The blood imparted in little sips
The smell of you still on my hands
As I bring the cup up to my lips

No God up in the sky
No devil beneath the sea
Could do the job that you did, baby
Of bringing me to my knees

Outside I sit on the stone steps
With nothing much to do
Forlorn and exhausted, baby
By the absence of you

  6. Timmy Pulma

    I love nick cave but I think lanegan does this one better (a rare example of a cover been superior)

  7. reymont cantil

    its great when a cover reminds you how great a song really is, reinforces its lyric and melody, lifts the poetry back up on the shelf, to be admired but maybe with a few more people who just didn't know beautiful it was after all.

  8. Alina P.

    Great version! I didn't know that Lanegan covered it. Nice!

  9. Tiago Martins
