Do You Love Me? - Nick Cave

(do you love me?)

I found her on a night of fire and noise
Wild bells rang in a wild sky
I knew from that moment on
That i would love her till the day that I died
And I kissed away her thousand tears
My lady of the various sorrows
Some begged, some borrowed, some stolen
Some kept safe for tomorrow
On that endless night, silver stars spangled
And the bells in the chapel went jingle.. jangle

Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me..
Like i love you?

She was given to me to put things right
And I stacked all my accomplishments beside her
Yeah, I seemed so obsolete and small
I found God, now his devil's inside her
In my bed, she cast the blizzard out
Mock sun blazed upon her head
So completely filled with that she was
A shadow fanged and hairy and mad
Our love lines grew hopelessly tangled
And the bells in the chapel went jingle.. jangle..

Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Like i love you..?

She had a heart full of love and devotion
She had a mind full of turning and turn
Well, i try, i do, i really try
But i just erred, baby, i do error
she douldn't find me, my darling one
I'm down, to the ground, the very dregs
Something's blocking the sun
Blood running down the inside of her legs
The moon in the sky is battered and mangled
And the bells in the chaple go jingle, jangle, jingle jangle..

Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Do you love me?
(d'ya love me)
Like i love you?

All things move toward their end
I knew before I met her that I would lose her
I swear i made every effort ot be good to her
I made every effort not to abuse her
Crazy bracelets on her wrists and her ankles
And the bells in the chapel go jingle.. jangle..
