Check out another great Nick Cave rarity http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3Vm3K...

Wake up my lover with the long tangled hair
Wake up for I have arrived
My house is in order and I've done to me
All the things that you said you require

Your fearless little man
Has abandoned all his plans
That crumbled the moment that I kissed you

On your small, hot mouth
And your downy, brown limbs
Which are hymns to the glory that is you

Wake up my lover with the restless hands
That open and close as you sleep
I cut myself away from all the shackles and chains
Now I'm free, but I'm shaky and weak

I long to be beside you
I long to be beside you
Make me feel what's going down isn't wrong

Open your eyes and tell me
That you will stay with me
Before it really hits me just what I've done

You say love is like a fire - well, no it ain't
It ain't like any fire I know
You say love is forever - well, ain't that quaint
Love's forever and then it up and goes

So wake up my lover with the caramel skin
I need to disabuse me of all my fears
The accusations, recriminations, the weeping, and the pleading
Are still ringing in my ears

Wake up my lover with the curious smile
That plays on your mouth while you dream
I need to be near you again, I need to hear from you again
Tell me we are right and holy and clean
