Once again, Nick Cave has lyrics that reach deep inside you, and take hold. Listening to his songs always leaves me feeling very introspective.
This one here “(Are You) The One That I’ve Been Waiting For” is taken from the excellent The Boatman’s Call CD.

“I’ve felt you coming girl, as you drew near
I knew you’d find me, cause I longed you here
Are you my desitiny? Is this how you’ll appear?
Wrapped in a coat with tears in your eyes?
Well take that coat babe, and throw it on the floor
Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?

As you’ve been moving surely toward me
My soul has comforted and assured me
That in time my heart it will reward me
And that all will be revealed
So I’ve sat and I’ve watched an ice-age thaw
Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?”
