Nick Cave – 14 – Beth’s Sleepy River scritto da admin 18 Gennaio 2016 Betty came by on her way Said she had a word to say About things today And fallen leaves. Said she hadn’t heard the news Hadn’t had the time to choose A way to lose But she believes. Going to see the river man Going to tell him all I can About the plan For lilac time. If he tells me all he knows About the way his river flows And all night shows In summertime. Betty said she prayed today For the sky to blow away Or maybe stay She wasn’t sure. For when she thought of summer rain Calling for her mind again She lost the pain And stayed for more. Going to see the river man Going to tell him all I can About the ban On feeling free. If he tells me all he knows About the way his river flows I don’t suppose It’s meant for me. Oh, how they come and go Oh, how they come and go.
