Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Messiah Ward Lyrics




I hope you're sitting comfortably
I saved you the best seat in the house
Right up in the front row
The stars have been torn down
The moon is locked away
And the land is banked in frozen snow

You are a forte of nature, dear
Your breath curls from your lips
As the trees bend down their branches
And touch you with their fingertips
They're bringing out the dead now
It's easy just to look away
They are bringing out the dead now
It's been a strange, strange day

We could navigate out position by the stars
But they've taken out the stars
The stars have all gone
I'm glad you've come along
We could comprehend our
condition by the moon
But they've ordered the the moon not to shine
Still, I 'm glad you've come along
I was worried out of my mind
Cause, they keep bringing out the dead
It's easy just to look away
They're bringing out the dead, now
And it's been a long, strange day

You can move up a little closer
I will throw a blanket over
We can weigh all the tears in one hand
Against the laughter in the other
We could be hanging around here for centuries
Trying to make sense of this, my dear
While the planets try to get organised
Way above the stratosphere
But they keep bringing out the dead, now
It's easy if we just walk away
They keep bringing out the dead, now
It's been a long, long day

Look away
Look away

    I come back to this album more than any album ever. Especially during the Fall/Winter season. I can never get tired of any of the songs.

    I hope you're sitting comfortably
    I saved you the best seat in the house
    Right up in the front row
    And the stars have been torn down
    And the moon is locked away
    The land is banked in frozen snow

    You are a force of nature, dear
    Your breath curls from your lips
    As the trees bend down their branches
    And touch you with their fingertips
    They're bringing out the dead now
    It's easy just to look away
    They are bringing out the dead now
    It's been a strange, strange day

    We could navigate out position by the stars
    But they've taken out the stars
    The stars have all gone
    I'm glad you've come along
    We could comprehend our
    condition by the moon
    But they've ordered the the moon not to shine
    Still, I 'm glad you've come along
    I was worried out of my mind
    Cause, they keep bringing out the dead
    It's easy just to look away
    They're bringing out the dead, now
    And it's been a long, strange day

    You can move up a little closer
    I will throw a blanket over
    We can weigh all the tears in one hand
    Against the laughter in the other
    We could be hanging around here for centuries
    Trying to make sense of this, my dear
    While the planets try to get organised
    Way above the stratosphere
    But they keep bringing out the dead, now
    It's easy if we just walk away
    They keep bringing out the dead, now
    It's been a long, long day

    Look away
    Look away

    A true personal story
    I've been a fan of Nick Cave since I was 10 years old
    Incidentally, the admiration here in this country for this singer is unparalleled in the world

    One day a fine in 1996 nick cave passed my in the middle of Jerusalem!! ... I tried to talk to him, but I could not say a word (I was 18), I was shocked from the depths of my soul

    Dreams come true, and we create our reality
    I can not wait to see him living in Tel Aviv in November

  6. Pogn Illat

    I'm pretty sure that Nick knows magic

    bscondict

  11. MesserStrange

    I've been listening to this album at the exclusion of all other albums and musicians for the past week. I don't intend to stop anytime soon, and am not sure when I'll listen to any of the rest of my iTunes library.

    bscondict

    I know :>/

    @CHRISDEAN1979 A los consumidores les tienen la culpa antes del mainstream. Pero no nos dejemos caer en la nostalgia con demasiada facilidad ,amigo, han emergido artistas muy talentosos estos ultimos anos. Arcade Fire, Antony and the Johnsons, pero tambien mas pequenos: Cinematic orchestra, Beirut y todos esos musicos de la generacion de los Take Away Shows. La magia siempre se encuentra, con paciencia ;)

  16. natalie23091989

    The greatest lyricist of our times.
