Jack’s Shadow – Nick Cave & The Bad Seed

They dragged Jack and his shadow
From the hole
And the bulb that burned above him
Did shine both day and night
And his shadow learned to love his
Little darks and greater light
And the sun it shined
And the sun it shined
And the sun it shined
A little longer

Jack wept and kissed his shadow
“Goodbye”
Spat from their dirty dungeons
Into a truly different din
Shat from their institutions
Into a fully different din
And his shadow soon became a wife
And children plagued his latter life
Until one night he took a skinning knife
And stole into the town
And tracked his shadow down

Said the shadow to Jack Henry
“What’s wrong?”
Jack said “A home is not a hole”
“And shwdow, you’re just a gallow that I hang my body from”
“O Shadow, your a shackle from wich my time is never done”
Then he peeled his shadow off in strips
He peeled his shadow off in strips
Then kneeled his shadow on some steps
And cried “What have I done?”

And the sun it shined
And the sun it shined
I say “Love is blind”
“And is it any wonder?!”
“And is it any wonder?!”

Jacked and his damned shadow
Is gone
And though each one of us are want to duly mourn
And though each one of us are want to duly mourn
‘Tis done in brighter corners now
‘Tis done in brighter corners now
Now that Jack’s black shadow’s gone

And the sun it shined
And the sun it shined

And the sun it shined
A little stronger

I swear, love is blind
Ooh, love is blind
Yeah, love is blind
And is it any wonder?

‘Tis done in brighter corners now
‘Tis done in brighter corners now
Now that Jack’s black shadow’s gone

Etcetera Etcetera
