Nature Boy

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

I was just a boy when I sat down
 To watch the news on TV
 I saw some ordinary slaughter
 I saw some routine atrocity
 My father said, don't look away
 You got to be strong, you got to be bold, now
 He said, that in the end it is beauty
 That is going to save the world, now

And she moves among the sparrows
 And she floats upon the breeze
 She moves among the flowers
 She moves something deep inside of me

I was walking around the flower show like a leper
 Coming down with some kind of nervous hysteria
 When I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hair
 Up against the pink and purple wisteria
 You said, hey, nature boy, are you looking at me
 With some unrighteous intention?
 My knees went weak,
 I couldn't speak, I was having thoughts
 That were not in my best interests to mention

And she moves among the flowers
 And she floats upon the smoke
 She moves among the shadows
 She moves me with just one little look

You took me back to your place
 And dressed me up in a deep sea diver's suit
 You played the patriot, you raised the flag
 And I stood at full salute
 Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
 And made it impossible to speak
 As you closed in, in slow motion,
 Quoting Sappho, in the original Greek

She moves among the shadows
 She floats upon the breeze
 She moves among the candles
 And we moved through the days
 and through the years

Years passed by, we were walking by the sea
 Half delirious
 You smiled at me and said, Babe
 I think this thing is getting kind of serious
 You pointed at something and said
 Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?
 It was then that I broke down
 It was then that you lifted me up again

She moves among the sparrows
 And she walks across the sea
 She moves among the flowers
 And she moves something deep inside of me

She moves among the sparrows
 And she floats upon the breeze
 She moves among the flowers
 And she moves right up close to me
