Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Do You Love Me? (Part 2)

rate me

Onward and onward and onward I go

Where no man before could be bothered to go

'Till the soles of my shoes are shot full of holes

And it's all downhill with a bullet

This ramblin' and rovin' has taken it's course

I'm grazing with the dinosaurs and the dear old horses

And the city streets crack and a great hole forces

Me down with my soapbox, my pulpit

The theatre ceiling is silver star spangled

And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

There's a man in the theatre with girlish eyes

Who's holding my childhood to ransom

On the screen there's a death, there's a rustle of cloth

And a sickly voice calling me handsome

There's a man in the theatre with sly girlish eyes

On the screen there's an ape, a gorilla

There's a groan, there's a cough, there's a rustle of cloth

And a voice that stinks of death and vanilla

This is a secret, mauled and mangled

And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

The walls in the ceiling are painted in blood

The lights go down, the red curtains come apart

The room is full of smoke and dialogue I know by heart

And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

As the great screen crackled and popped

And the clock of my boyhood was

wound down and stopped

And my handsome little body oddly propped

And my trousers ride down to my ankles

Yes, onward! And upward! And I'm off to find love

Do you love me? If you do, I'm thankful

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

This city is an ogre squatting by the river

It gives life but it takes it away, my youth

There comes a time when you just cannot deliver

This is a fact, this is a stone cold truth

Do you love me? I do, I love you, handsome

Do you love me? Yes, I love you, you are handsome

Amongst the cogs and the wires, my youth

Vanilla breath and handsome apes with girlish eyes

Dreams that roam between truth and untruth

Memories that become monstrous lies

So onward and onward and onward I go

Onward and upward and I'm off to find love

With blue-black bracelets on my wrists and my ankles

And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?
