luís soares

Blog do escritor Luís Soares

Nicholas Cave times three.

You fell from the sky
Crash landed in a field
Near the river Adur
Flowers spring from the ground
Lambs burst from the wombs of their mothers
In a hole beneath the bridge
She convalesce, she fashioned masks of twigs and clay
You cried beneath the dripping trees
Ghost song lodged in the throat of a mermaid


With my voice
I am calling you


You're a young man waking
Covered in blood that is not yours
You're a woman in a yellow dress
Surrounded by a charm of hummingbirds
You're a young girl full of forbidden energy
Flickering in the gloom
You're a drug addict lying on your back
In a Tijuana hotel room


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


You're an African doctor harvesting tear ducts
You believe in God, but you get no special dispensation for this belief now
You're an old man sitting by a fire, hear the mist rolling off the sea
You're a distant memory in the mind of your creator, don't you see?


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


Let us sit together until the moment comes


With my voice
I am calling you


With my voice, I am calling you

 

Mostly I never knew which way was out
Once it was on, it was on and that was that
The umbilicus was a force that they'd found in rabid blood
Then I spin on my wheel like a laboratory rat
I was an electrical storm on the bathroom floor, clutching the bowl
My blood was for the gags and other people's diseases
My monstrous little memory had swallowed me whole
It was the year I officially became the bride of Jesus


In love, in love, in love you laugh
In love you move, I move and one more time with feeling
For love, you love, I laugh, you love
Saw you in heart and the stars are splashed across the ceiling


Oh, the urge to kill somebody was basically overwhelming
I had such hard blues down there in the supermarket queues
And I had a sudden urge to become someone, someone like you
Who started out with less than anyone I ever knew


In love, in love, I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I move, you move and one more time with feeling
I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I'm sewn in heart and all the stars are splashed 'cross the ceiling


Oh, and oh, you come shining
Softly to the hold of a drink
Come as far as the edge of my blood and swim
And in the bathroom mirror I see me vomit in the sink
And all through the house we hear the hyena's hymns


Of love, I love, you love, I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I move, you move, you move, and one more time with feeling
I love, you love, I laugh, you love
We saw each other in heart and all the stars have splashed and splattered 'cross the ceiling

 

 

I was ridin', I was ridin', oh
The sun, the sun, the sun was rising from the fields

 

I got a feeling I just can't shake
I got a feeling that just won't go away
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And if your friends think that you should do it different
And if they think that you should do it the same
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And if you feel you got everything you came for
If you got everything and you don't want no more
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And some people say it's just rock and roll
Oh but it gets you right down to your soul
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away
