Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Midnight Man

rate me

Hold that chrysalis in your palm, see it split and change

It won't do you any harm, it's just trying to rearrange

It was born to live a day, now it flies up from your hand

It's beautiful, it's the one they call your ever-loving man

Wolves have carried your babies away, oh your kids drip from their teeth

The nights are long and the day is bitter cold beyond belief

You spread yourself like a penitent upon the mad vibrating sand

And through your teeth arrange to meet your midnight man

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see

Everybody wanna be your midnight man

Don't disturb me as I sleep, treat me gently when I wake

Don't disturb me when I sleep even though your body aches

Even though your body aches to serve at his command

Between the wars she still adores her ever-loving man

Close your eyes, sleep in him, dream of your lost sons and daughters

Me, I'll raise up the dorsal fin, and glide up and down the waters

I'll glide up and down the waters, then I'll walk upon the land

And call them out, the ones who doubt your midnight man

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see

Everybody wants to be your midnight man

It's early in the morning and I don't know what to do

It's early in the morning and I can't believe it's true

It's early in the morning and it's happening again

I called you once, I called you twice, ain't I your midnight man?

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round to my place

Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see

Everybody wants to be your midnight man

Everybody's coming round

Everybody's coming round

Everybody's coming round

To be your midnight man

To be your midnight man
