Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Sun Forest Lyrics




I lay in the forest amongst the butterflies and the fireflies
And the burning horses and the flaming trees
As a spiral of children climb up to the sun
Waving goodbye to you and goodbye to me
As the past pulls away and the future begins
I say goodbye to all that as the future rolls in
Like a wave, like a wave
And the past with its savage undertow lets go

Come on everyone, come on everyone
A spiral of children climbs up to the sun
To the sun, to the sun, and on each golden rung
A spiral of children climbs up to the sun

And a man called Jesus, he promised he would leave us
With a word that would light up the night, oh the night
But the stars hang from threads and blink off one by one
And it isn't any fun, no it isn't any fun
To be standing here alone with nowhere to be
With a man mad with grief and on each side a thief
Everybody hanging from a tree, from a tree
And everybody hanging from a tree

Come on everyone, come on everyone
A spiral of children climbs up to the sun
To the sun, to the sun taking everyone
A spiral of children climbs up to the sun

There is nothing more valuable than beauty
They say there is nothing more valuable than love
And I lie amongst the leaves and the burning trees
And the fields of smoke and the black butterflies
And the screaming horses and your bright green eyes, so beautiful
Oh, your bright green eyes, so beautiful

I am here beside you
Look for me in the sun
I am beside you, I am within
In the sunshine, in the sun

  12. apatikk

    Am I the only one who understand something different in the last verse than "..in the sun"? I rather understand : "In me" but that's not what the lyric shows.

    Nick Cave should tour with Kanye West. This album kinda sounds like „Jesus is King“

    Hirnlego999

    @TOBE Music "Kanye has a better discography than Nick Cave... deal with it"
    Wow, that's the dumbest thing I have read all week, and I do read a lot.

    Donkeydongle

    TOBE Music dude you just can’t compare 2 artist coming out of completely different genres.

    CJL96

    @TOBE Music Kanye has a great discography but Nick has more classic and essential albums due to his discography being substantially larger

    TOBE Music

    CJL96 yea actually I don’t know what I was smoking when I wrote that comment, but I kinda agree with your point

    Razz 'Em
