Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Lie Down Here (& Be My Girl)

rate me

Well, you lost a foe

And found yourself a friend

(Lie down here & be my girl)

I'm back now, baby, that man

He won't be coming round here again

(Lie down here & be my girl)

I'm trying to tread careful, baby

You're as brittle as the wishbone of a bird

(Lie down here & be my girl)

We've been scribbled in the margins of a story

That's patently absurd

(Lie down here & be my girl)

And let it all come down tonight

We can shine, shine

Let it all come down

(Be my girl, be my girl)

It's a matter of some urgency, oh darling, can't you see

I can't hold back the tide

(Lie down here & be my girl)

And stop your frantic little fingers trying to collect the years

That pour from the hole in my side

(Lie down here & be my girl)

Oh, don't worry, baby, this old snake banging on your door

Has got a few skins left to shed

(Lie down here & be my girl)

Oh, you look so good, you look so good

The rest is better left unsaid

(Lie down here & be my girl)

And let it all come down tonight

And shine, oh, we can shine

Let it all come down

Tonight

(Be my girl, yeah, be my girl)

You look so good, you look so good

One day I'll buy a factory

And assemble you on a production line

(Lie down here & be my girl)

I'd buy a million of you, baby

And every single one of them will be mine

(Lie down here & be my girl)

I will fill the house with you, stack you up in every room

We'll have a real good time

(Lie down here & be my girl)

But right now, I'm sitting here on my own

Going out of my mind

(Lie down here & be my girl)

And let it all come down tonight

And shine, oh, we can shine

Let it all come down

Tonight

You look so good, you look so good
