NICK SE PREGUNTA

Siguiendo el ejemplo de mi amiga, la hermosa Cándida, ahí va la letra de una de las mejores canciones escrita por el australiano errante.

I´ve searched the holy books
I tried to unravel the mystery of Jesus Christ, the saviour
I´ve read the poets and the analysts
Searched through the books on human behaviour
I travelled the world around
For an answer that refused to be found
I don´t know why and I don´t know how
But she´s nobody´s baby now

I loved her then and I guess I love her still
Hers is the face I see when a certain mood moves in
She lives in my blood and skin
Her wild feral stare, her dark hair
Her winter lips cold as stone
Yeah, I was her man
But there are some things love won´t allow
I held her hand but I don´t hold it now
I don´t know why and I don´t know how
But she´s nobody´s baby now

This is her dress that I loved best
With the blue quilted violets across her breast
And these are my many letters
Torn to pieces by her long-fingered hand
I was her cruel-hearted man
And though I´ve tried to lay her ghost down
She´s moving through me, even now
I don´t know why and I don´t know how
But she´s nobody´s baby now
