From Her to Eternity (Nick Cave & 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.
