Jack's Shadow

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds


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
