Where Do We Go Now But Nowhere

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

I remember a girl so very well
 The carnival drums all mad in the air
 Grim reapers and skeletons and a missionary bell
 O where do we go now but nowhere

In a colonial hotel we f*cked up the sun
 And then we f*cked it down again
 Well the sun comes up and the sun goes down
 Going round and round to nowhere

The kitten that padded and purred on my lap
 Now swipes at my face with the paw of a bear
 I turn the other cheek and you lay into that
 O where do we go now but nowhere

O wake up, my love, my lover wake up
 O wake up, my love, my lover wake up

Across clinical benches with nothing to talk
 Breathing tea and biscuits and the Serenity Prayer
 While the bones of our child crumble like chalk
 O where do we go now but nowhere



I remember a girl so bold and so bright
 Loose-limbed and laughing and brazen and bare
 Sits gnawing her knuckles in the chemical light
 O where do we go now but nowhere

You come for me now with a cake that you've made
 Ravaged avenger with a clip in your hair
 Full of glass and bleach and my old razorblades
 O where do we go now but nowhere

O wake up, my love, my lover wake up
 O wake up, my love, my lover wake up

If they'd give me my clothes back then I could go home
 From this fresh, this clean, antiseptic air
 Behind the locked gates an old donkey moans
 O where do we go now but nowhere

Around the duck pond we grimly mope
 Gloomily and mournfully we go rounds again
 And one more doomed time and without much hope
 Going round and around to nowhere

From the balcony we watched the carnival band
 The crack of the drum a little child did scare
 I can still feel his tiny fingers pressed in my hand
 O where do we go now but nowhere

If I could relive one day of my life
 If I could relive just a single one
 You on the balcony, my future wife
 O who could have known, but no one

O wake up, my love, my lover make up
 O wake up, my love, my lover make up
