Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds.Where Do We Go Now But Nowhere?

I remember a girl so very well
The carnival drums all mad in the air
Grim reapers and skeletons and a missionary bell
O where do we go now but nowhere 
In a colonial hotel we fucked up the sun
And then we fucked it down again
Well the sun comes up and the sun goes down
Going round and round to nowhere 
The kitten that padded and purred on my lap
Now swipes at my face with the paw of a bear
I turn the other cheek and you lay into that
O where do we go now but nowhere 
O wake up, my love, my lover wake up
O wake up, my love, my lover wake up 
Across clinical benches with nothing to talk
Breathing tea and biscuits and the Serenity Prayer
While the bones of our child crumble like chalk
O where do we go now but nowhere 
I remember a girl so bold and so bright
Loose-limbed and laughing and brazen and bare
Sits gnawing her knuckles in the chemical light
O where do we go now but nowhere 
You come for me now with a cake that you've made
Ravaged avenger with a clip in your hair
Full of glass and bleach and my old razorblades
O where do we go now but nowhere 
O wake up, my love, my lover wake up
O wake up, my love, my lover wake up 
If they'd give me my clothes back then I could go home
From this fresh, this clean, antiseptic air
Behind the locked gates an old donkey moans
O where do we go now but nowhere
Around the duck pond we grimly mope
Gloomily and mournfully we go rounds again
And one more doomed time and without much hope
Going round and around to nowhere 
From the balcony we watched the carnival band
The crack of the drum a little child did scare
I can still feel his tiny fingers pressed in my hand
O where do we go now but nowhere 
If I could relive one day of my life
If I could relive just a single one
You on the balcony, my future wife
O who could have known, but no one 
O wake up, my love, my lover make up
O wake up, my love, my lover make up 
我記得一個女孩 印象深刻
當嘉年華會上的鼓聲瘋狂地迴盪在空氣中
有堅強的收割者、骨瘦如柴的人和教會的鐘聲
噢 除了無處可去我們還能去那裡? 
在殖民地的旅館裡我們相幹到日出
然後又幹到日頭再一次落下
日昇日落也只是無盡的循環 
小貓踡伏在我的膝上愉快地低鳴
現在又用他那像熊一般的小掌揮擊著我的臉
我別過臉去你郤又不打了
噢 除了無處可去我們還能去那裡? 
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧 
在侯診間的長凳上也沒什麼好跟鄰座聊的
呼吸、茶和小餅乾還有安詳的禱告
當我們的孩子正像根粉筆一樣碎裂著他們的骨頭時
噢 除了無處可去我們還能去那裡? 
我記得一個女孩 如此的英勇而且開朗
手腳靈活的、笑著、厚著臉皮、赤裸著
坐在化學的燈光下啃咬著她的指頭
噢 除了無處可去我們還能去那裡? 
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧 
在養鴨的池塘旁我們冷酷地憂鬱著
陰沈地、悽慘地我們又繞了池塘一圈
又一次命中注定且沒有太多希望的
一圈一圈地繞著無處可去 
從陽台上我們看到在嘉年會上表演的樂隊
鼓敲擊的聲音確實驚嚇到一個小孩子
我仍然能感覺到他細細的指頭緊掐住我的手
噢 除了無處可去我們還能去那裡? 
若我能再一次體驗生命中的一天
若我能再一次體驗只要一天就好
我未來的妻子啊 我會帶妳回到那個陽台上
但是誰能知道呢 沒有人啊! 
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧
噢 醒來吧我的愛 我的愛人醒來吧
