Are you the one I’ve been waiting for?

Are You The One I’ve Been Waiting For? (1997) by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

I’ve felt you coming girl, as you drew near

I knew you’d find me, cause I longed you here

Are you my destiny? Is this how you’ll appear?

Wrapped in a coat with tears in your eyes?

Well take that coat babe, and throw it on the floor

Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?

As you’ve been moving surely toward me

My soul has comforted and assured me

That in time my heart it will reward me

And that all will be revealed

So I’ve sat and I’ve watched an ice-age thaw

Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?

Out of sorrow entire worlds have been built

Out of longing great wonders have been willed

They’re only little tears, darling, let them spill

And lay your head upon my shoulder

Outside my window the world has gone to war

Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?

O we will know, won’t we?

The stars will explode in the sky

O but they don’t, do they?

Stars have their moment and then they die

There’s a man who spoke wonders though I’ve never met him

He said, “He who seeks finds and who knocks will be let in”

I think of you in motion and just how close you are getting

And how every little thing anticipates you

All down my veins my heart-strings call

Are you the one that I’ve been waiting for?
