From Her To Eternity

This song is by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and appears on the album From Her to Eternity (1984) and on the live album Live Seeds (1993).


I wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
You know, she lives in Room 29
Why, that's the one right up top a mine
I start to cry, I start to cry
O I hear her walkin'
Walkin' barefoot cross the floorboards
All through this lonesome night
I hear her crying too
Hot tears come splashin' down
Leakin' through the cracks
Down upon my face, I catch 'em in my mouth
Catch 'em in my mouth
Catch 'em in my mouth
I catch 'em in my mouth
Walk 'n' cry, walk 'n' cry
Walk 'n' cry, I walk 'n' cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity

I read her diary on her sheets
Scrutinizin' ev'ry li'l bit of dirt
Tore out a page 'n' stuffed it inside my shirt
I fled outta the window
And shinning it down the vine
Outta her nightmare and back into mine
Mine!

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity

Cry cry cry
Cry cry cry
She's wearin' them blue stockin's I bet
And standin' like this with my ear to the ceiling
Listen, Ih know it must sound absurd
But I can hear the most melancholy sound
I ever heard!
Walk 'n' cry
Walk 'n' cry
Kneel 'n' cry
Kneel 'n' cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity

Oh tell me why?
Oh why, why, why
Tell me why
Why the ceiling still shakes? Shake shake shake
Why the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?
This desire to possess her is a wound
And it's naggin' at me like a shrew
But I know that to possess her
Is, therefore, not to desire her
Oh, oh, oh then ya know, that li'l' girl would just have to go

Go go go
From her to eternity (go go go)
From her to eternity
From her to eternity (cry, cry, cry)
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her
