Hard On For Love

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

1986

It is for she that the cherry bleeds
That the moon is steeped in milk and blood
That I steal like a robber
From her altar of love
O money lender!
O cloven gender!
I am the fiend hid in her skirts
And it’s as hot as hell in here
Coming at her as I am from above

Hard on for love hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love

Well, I swear I seen that girl before
Like she walked straight outta the book of Leviticus
But they can stone me with stones I don’t care
Just as long as I can get to kiss
Those gypsy lips! Gypsy lips!
My aim is to hit this Miss
And I’m movin’ in (I’m movin’ in)
Coming at her like Lazarus from above

Hard on for love hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love

The Lord is my shepard I shall not want
The Lord is my shepard I shall not want
But he leadeth me like a lamb to the lips
Of the mouth of the valley of the shadow of death
I am his rod and his staff
I am his sceptre and shaft
And she is heaven and hell
At whose gates I ain’t been delivered
I’m gunna give them gates a shove

Hard on for love hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love

And her breasts rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
And just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
You are beautiful! O dove!

Hard on for love hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Just when I’m about to get my hands on her
Hard on for love hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love
