Wide Lovely Eyes (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

You wave at the sky with wild lovely eyes Waves and waves of love goodbye And through the garden with your secret key Down the tunnel that leads to the sea Step on the beach beneath the iron sky You wave and wave with your wild lovely eyes Crystal waves and waves of love You wave and say goodbye Your dress size with your wild lovely strides And all along the street and lately the stories abound They've dismantled the fun fair and they've shut down the rides And they've hung the mermaids from the streetlights by their hair And with wild lovely eyes you wave at the sky And me at the high window watching the ride The waves of blue and the waves of love You wave and say goodbye The night expands, I am expanding I watch your hands like butterflies bending All among the myths and the legends we create And all the laughing stories we tell our friends Close the windows, clear up the mess It's getting late, it's darker and closer to the end Through the tunnel and down to the sea And on that pebble beach, your laces you untie And arrange your shoes side by side You wave and wave with your wide lovely eyes Distant waves and waves of distant love You wave and say goodbye
