Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

14 years.   {#Cry}
11 years and still not played.  :(
Never played is a very long time.
Hey, how come this gem of a song has never been played...? <-X :wink:
I just heard this on an episode of The Secret Life of Us (a now defunct Australian soap opera which has sporadic rotation on US cable). It was amazing. Of course I wondered if I had heard it here before. Apparently not...but yes, we should! Please. 8)

I second that! One of the finest love songs ever written. It almost brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. Nick Cave wrote:
