Are You The One That I've Been Waiting for - Nick Cave

I felt you coming girl as I drew you near
I knew you'd find me cause I longed you here
are you my destiny, is this how you'll appear
wrapped in a coat with tears in your eyes

well take that coat baby and throw it on the floor
Are you the one that I've been waiting for

You've been moving surely towards me
my soul has comforted and assured me
that in time my heart it will reward me
and that all will be revealed

Laura

I've sat and I've watched an ice-age thaw
Are you the one that I've been waiting for

Out of sorrow entire worlds have been built
out of longing great wonders have been willed
they're only little tears darling let them spill
and lay your head upon my shoulder

Outside my window the world has gone to war
are you the one that I've been waiting for

We will know won't we
stars will explode in the sky
but they don't do they
stars have their moments then they die

There's a man who spoke wonders though I never met him
he said "He who seek finds, and who knocks will be let in"
I think of you in motion and just how close you are getting
and how every little thing anticipates you

Down through my veins my heartstrings call
are you the one that I've been waiting for
