She Fell Away (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

Once she lay open like a road Carbed apart the madness that I stumbled from But she fell away She fell away Shed me like a skin She fell away Left me holding everything Once the road lay open like a girl And we drank and laughed and threw the bottle over But she fell away She fell away I did not see the cracks form As I knelt to pray I did not see the crevice yawn, no Sometimes At night I feel the end it is at hand My pistol going crazy in my hand For she fell away O she fell away Walked me th the brink The fell away I did not see her fall To better days Sometimes I wonder was she ever there at all She fell away She fell away She fell away
