inspired by Anschul's thread, I was reading some lyrics by various different artists to find a great couplet, and just read the lyrics to 'into my arms' by nick cave and almost cried.
so yeah, imo, he's the best lyricist:
I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms
your choice and an example of stellar lyrical work please!
