Jesus Alone

Album: Skeleton Tree (2016)
  • You fell from the sky
    Crash landed in a field
    Near the river Adur
    Flowers spring from the ground
    Lambs burst from the wombs of their mothers
    In a hole beneath the bridge
    She convalesce, she fashioned masks of twigs and clay
    You cried beneath the dripping trees
    Ghost song lodged in the throat of a mermaid

    With my voice
    I am calling you

    You're a young man waking
    Covered in blood that is not yours
    You're a woman in a yellow dress
    Surrounded by a charm of hummingbirds
    You're a young girl full of forbidden energy
    Flickering in the gloom
    You're a drug addict lying on your back
    In a Tijuana hotel room

    With my voice
    I am calling you
    With my voice
    I am calling you

    You're an African doctor harvesting tear ducts
    You believe in God, but you get no special dispensation for this belief now
    You're an old man sitting by a fire, hear the mist rolling off the sea
    You're a distant memory in the mind of your creator, don't you see?

    With my voice
    I am calling you
    With my voice
    I am calling you

    Let us sit together until the moment comes

    With my voice
    I am calling you

    With my voice, I am calling you Writer/s: NICHOLAS CAVE
