Sorrow's Child (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

Sorrow's child sits by the river Sorrow's child hears not the water Sorrow's child sits by the river Sorrow's child hears not the water And just when it seems as though You've got strength enough to stand Sorrow's child all weak and strange Stands waiting at your hand Sorrow's child steps in the water Sorrow's child you follow after Sorrow's child wades in deeper Sorrow's child invites you under And just when you thought as though All your tears were wept and done Sorrow's child grieves not what has passed But all the past still yet to come Sorrow's child sits by the water Sorrow's child your arms enfold her Sorrow's child you're loathe to befriend her Sorrow's child but in sorrow surrender And just when is seems as though All your tears were at an end Sorrow's child lifts up her hand And she brings it down again
