Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Nobody's Baby Now

rate me

I've searched the holy books

I tried to unravel the mystery of Jesus Christ, the saviour

I've read the poets and the analysts

Searched through the books on human behaviour

I've travelled this world around

For an answer that refused to be found

I don't know why and I don't know how

But she's nobody's baby now

I loved her then, I guess I love her still

Hers is the face I see when a certain mood moves in

She lives in my blood and skin

Her wild feral stare, her dark hair

Her winter lips as cold as stone

Yeah, I was her man

But there are some things love won't allow

I held her hand but I don't hold it now

I don't know why and I don't know how

But she's nobody's baby now

This is her dress that I loved best

With the blue quilted violets across the breast

And these are my many letters

Torn to pieces by her long-fingered hand

I was her cruel-hearted man

I know I tried to lay her ghost down

She's moving through me, even now

I don't know why and I don't know how

But she's nobody's baby now

She's nobody's baby now

Nobody's baby now

She's nobody's baby now
