Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: Lament

LAMENT
/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/

I've seen your fairground hair
Your seaside eyes
Your vampire tooth
Your little truth
And your tiny lies

And I know your trembling hand
Your guilty prize
Your sleeping limbs
Your foreign hymns
And your midnight cries

[Chorus:]
So dry your eyes
And turn your head away
Now there's nothing more to say
Now you're gone away

I know your trail of tears
Your slip of hand
Your monkey claw
Your monkey paw
And your monkey hand

And I've seen your trick of blood
Your trap of fire
Your ancient wound
Your scarlet moon
Your jailhouse smile

[Chorus] [2x]

I'll miss your urchin smile
Your orphan tears
Your shining prize
Your tiny cries
Your little fears

And I'll miss your fairground hair
Your seaside eyes
Your little truth
And your vampire tooth
And your tiny lies

[Chorus] [3x]
