HUMMINGBIRD

Verse I

When we were young we would run away from the showers,

Of plans that grew like roots and tripped us by our feet.

When we were young oh baby we had power,

A 1960s architectural dream.

 

Pre Chorus

Well I didn't know if I had any emotion,

My heart beat wasn't mine,

Well I didn't know if I had any emotion,

Now I cry all the time.

 

Chorus

So sky high baby,

Goodbye baby blue goodbye baby blue.

Sky high baby goodbye baby now lets see what we do.

You know I love you but thats alright baby I know that you did too.

Sky high baby,

Goodbye baby now lets see what we do.

Verse II

Well now we're older baby we are wiser,

But I promise darling, that wasn't my design.

So now I'll sit prettily and watch your face fade away,

And I'll think of all the times that:

Pre Chorus

Plans bigger than us were burrowing through us,

We could not run away.

Well Polly Jean Harvey - baby I love you dearly,

Yours sincerely, Nick Cave!
