I Let Love In
   ------Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

Despair and Deception, Love's ugly little twins
Came a-knocking on my door, I let them in
Darling, you're the punishment for all of my former sins


I let love in
I let love in


The door it opened just a crack, but Love was shrewed and bold
My life flashed before my eyes, it was a horror to behold
A life-sentence sweeping confetti from the floor of a concrete hole


I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in


Well I've been bound and gagged and I've been terrorized
And I've been castrated and I've been lobotomized
But never has my tormenter come in such a cunning disguise


I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in


O Lord, tell me what I done
Please don't leave me here alone
Where are my friends?
My friends are gone


O Lord, tell me what I done
Please don't leave me here alone
Where are my friends?
My friends are gone


I let love in
I let love in


So if you're sitting all alone and hear a-knocking at you door
and the air is full of promises, well buddy, you've been warned
Far worse to be Love's lover than the lover that Love has scorned


I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
