From Her to Eternity - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Ah wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
You know, she lives in Room 29
Why that's the one right up top a mine
Ah start to cry, ah start to cry-y
O ah hear her walkin'
Walkin' barefoot cross the floorboards
All through this lonesome night
And ah hear her crying too
Hot tears come splashin' down
Leakin' through the cracks
Down upon my face, ah catch 'em in my mouth!
Walk 'n' Cry, Walk 'n' Cry-y!
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Ah read her diary on her sheets
Scrutinizin' ev'ry li'l piece of dirt.
Tore out a page 'n' stufft it inside my shirt.
Fled outta the window
And shinning it down the vine
Outta her nightmare and back into mine.
Mine! O mine!
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Cry! Cry! Cry!
She's wearin' them bloo-stockens, ah bet!
And standin' like this with my ear to the ceiling
Listen, ah know it must sound absurd
But ah can hear the most melancholy sound
Ah ever heard!
Walk 'n' Cry! Kneel 'n' Cry-y!
From her to eternity
From her to eternity.
