NICK CAVE lyrics : "Far From Me"

For you dear, I was born
For you I was raised up
For you I've lived and for you I will die

For you I am dying now
You were my mad little lover
In a world where everybody $#&@s everybody else over

You who are so far from me
Far from me
So far from me

Way across some cold neurotic sea
Far from me

I would talk to you of all matter of things
With a smile you would reply
Then the sun would leave your pretty face

And you'd retreat from the front of your eyes
I keep hearing that you're doing best
I hope your heart beats happy in your infant breast

You are so far from me
Far from me
Far from me

There is no knowledge but i know it
There's nothing to learn from that vacant voice

That sails to me across the line
From the ridiculous to the sublime
It's good to hear you're doing so well

But really can't you find somebody else that you can ring and
Did you ever

Care for me?
Were you ever
There for me?

So far from me

You told me you'd stick by me

Through the thick and through the thin
Those were your very words
My fair-weather friend

You were my brave-hearted lover
At the first taste of trouble went running back to mother
So far from me

Far from me
Suspended in your bleak and fishless sea
Far from me

Far from me
