    To me, this song is just brilliant.
    I don’t know so much about Nick Cave yet, but to be able to make such a song he must be a composers and musical savant.

    lyrics/NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS LYRICS

    "Nature Boy"

    I was just a boy when I sat down
    To watch the news on TV
    I saw some ordinary slaughter
    I saw some routine atrocity
    My father said, don't look away
    You got to be strong, you got to be bold, now
    He said, that in the end it is beauty
    That is going to save the world, now

    And she moves among the sparrows
    And she floats upon the breeze
    She moves among the flowers
    She moves something deep inside of me

    I was walking around the flower show like a leper
    Coming down with some kind of nervous hysteria
    When I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hair
    Up against the pink and purple wisteria
    You said, hey, nature boy, are you looking at me
    With some unrighteous intention?
    My knees went weak,
    I couldn't speak, I was having thoughts
    That were not in my best interests to mention

    And she moves among the flowers
    And she floats upon the smoke
    She moves among the shadows
    She moves me with just one little look

    You took me back to your place
    And dressed me up in a deep sea diver's suit
    You played the patriot, you raised the flag
    And I stood at full salute
    Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
    And made it impossible to speak
    As you closed in, in slow motion,
    Quoting Sappho, in the original Greek

    She moves among the shadows
    She floats upon the breeze
    She moves among the candles
    And we moved through the days
    and through the years

    Years passed by, we were walking by the sea
    Half delirious
    You smiled at me and said, Babe
    I think this thing is getting kind of serious
    You pointed at something and said
    Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?
    It was then that I broke down
    It was then that you lifted me up again

    She moves among the sparrows
    And she walks across the sea
    She moves among the flowers
    And she moves something deep inside of me

    She moves among the sparrows
    And she floats upon the breeze
    She moves among the flowers
    And she moves right up close to me

    Agreed, Foxtrot Hotel. Anyone who has been a fan of Nick Cave for more than a minute knows that he loves to mix it up. While he often leans toward the morose, there is no one staid "Nick Cave sound". (I'm talkin' bout "Witness Song" or "Hard on for Love"; pretty catchy, Nick.)

    I would love to hear him do a version of the proper Nature Boy. It's about him and boys like him. Perfect.

    This song to me at this moment in time…is what Jim H. would of sang to me had we got married…its a little like "i wanna be Kate" by Ben Folds Five (for me not in verse)….yup thats right I am Kate…….and I like to be among the flowers….this song is alot like the 80's type tunes…. but you still have Nicks voice and lyrics…..for me…I enjoy the catchy tune…its a little like a cheesy love song….
