Are you the one that I've been waiting for?  performed by  Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds  (1997)
Composed by Nick Cave
Arranged by Cave
From: Australia
Recommended by phil [profile] on Friday 27th April 2001

Like most of the boatman's call album, this one is very sparse - it's essentially the piano and Nick's voice. The lyrics are Nicks best ever effort though I reckon - it's him trying to decide if someone really is the love of his life: "well we would know, won't we?/ stars would explode in the sky/ But they don't, do they?/ Stars have their moment, and then they die."
 
It really does repay listening to about a hundred times - very moving.

from The Boatman's Call (Mute LC5834), available on CD
