Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Waiting For You Lyrics




All through the night we drove and the wind caught her hair
And we parked on the beach in the cool evening air
Well, sometimes it's better not to say anything at all
Your body is an anchor, never asked to be free
Just want to stay in the business of making you happy

Well I'm just waiting for you
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Waiting for you, waiting for you

A priest runs through the chapel, all the calendars are turning
A Jesus freak on the street says He is returning
Well sometimes a little bit of faith can go a long long way
Your soul is my anchor, never asked to be freed
Well sleep now, sleep now, take as long as you need

Cause I'm just waiting for you
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Waiting for you
To return
To return
To return

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Waiting For You Comments
  1. Chris King

    This is such a devastatingly beautiful, raw, raw song. This year, these last five months, I have lost four very special people..my first love who remained one of my best friends for forty years, my oldest, closest friend (50 years), my dear, sweet religious teacher and another childhood friend... saying goodbye to each of them, one after another, has been hard and I was too shell shocked to cry/mourn them properly until I heard this song. .. one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard..a song that captures the pain of live so perfectly. Stunning piece of music. I listen to it every night before I sleep. I shed a few more tears and then my dear friends return to me in my dreams and I give thanks that such wonderful, unique people were part of my life for so long. Life is painful but it is beautiful too, like Nick Cave's music.

    It made me cry also. Maybe not just for people I've lost, but for people I've not yet found....and for that I lost myself.

    Chris King

    @solatiumz it's so powerful, isn't it?

  2. Nir Lahav

    So sad. It's so horrible to loose your child. Stay strong Nick!

    Some people say he’s weird...I don’t care...I like him. Such a soulful singer.

    OldSamVimes

    In the oldest sense of the word 'weird' is 'magical''.

  9. Butterfly MG

    Im still waiting for you since the day you went away ....

  10. Danielsan

    I was holding a picture of my sister who past away and asked her where are you?
    Had you tube on random and this started playing.
    What a magical moment!

    Janice Ward

  11. Michael Procter

    In these last couple of months Leonard Cohen released ‘Thanks for the Dance’ and I heard ‘Waiting for You’ for the first time.


    Both songs have caused grief to shift in me. Grief I feel for my Lover, Jamaal who died six years ago



    I now am beginning to feel gratitude for our time together {Leonard} and hope {Nick}



    I have been broken and on my knees for these last six years – now I may have the chance to stand again – what a transformative gift from each of you two fine, fine gentlemen



    ‘Your soul is my anchor, I never asked to be freed’



    Oh, my Lover, soon, soon, soon

    Grey Alphadonse

  21. Lord Darkov

    Sadness has a voice. The hurt you feel that's been stuck between your chest and throat. So much tears can be felt in this song. The way that it's been sung. So beautiful

  22. Amitav Barai

    This album is suffused with both pain and pleasure. And this is not only beautiful but also profound. Best album of 2019 undoubtedly.

  23. Emilia J

    All through the night we drove and the wind caught her hair
    And we parked on the beach in the cool evening air
    Well, sometimes it's better not to say anything at all
    Your body is an anchor, never asked to be free
    Just want to stay in the business of making you happy
    Well I'm just waiting for you
    Waiting for you, waiting for you
    Waiting for you, waiting for you
    Waiting for you
    A priest runs through the chapel, all the calendars are turning
    A Jesus freak on the street says He is returning
    Well sometimes a little bit of faith can go a long, long way
    Your soul is my anchor, never asked to be freed
    Well sleep now, sleep now, take as long as you need
    'Cause I'm just waiting for you
    Waiting for you, waiting for you
    Waiting for you, waiting for you
    Waiting for you
    To return
    To return
    To return

  35. Low Moon

    Musically this album is the most boring thing he's ever done.

    WhiteEagle PL

    How old are U ? 10 ?

    Lord Darkov

    Maybe it's because you have been lucky to never lose someone very close to you, because otherwise you would feel those emotions and it would really change your world.

    Ринат Альфредович

    @Lord Darkov That song makes me stop doing anything and I'm just freezing. And looking at one point. I just can't understand how he've got through it

    Jelena Zlojutro
