Straight To You

This song is by Emm Gryner and appears on the album Girl Versions (2001).

This song is a cover of "Straight to You" by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
The towers of ivory are crumbling
And the swallows have sharpened their beaks
This is the time of our great undoing,
This is the time that I'll come running
Straight to you, for I am captured
Straight to you, for I am captured
Once again.

And the light in our window is fading
And the candle, it gutters on the ledge
And our sorrow, it comes a stealing
And I'll cry but I'll come running
Straight to you, for I am captured
Straight to you, for I am captured
One more time.

And gone are the days of rainbows
Gone are the nights of swinging from the stars
For the seas will swallow up the mountains
And the sky will throw thunderbolts and sparks
Straight at you but I'll come running
Straight to you, yes I'll come a running
One more time.

And heaven has denied us its kingdom
And the saints they're all drunk, and howling at the moon
And the chariots of angels are colliding
And I'll run but I'll come running
Straight to you, for I am captured
Straight to you, for I am captured
Once more time.
