I'm Nina
I feel love
I'll be safe
I'll be yours
Evermore
I'll be safe

Mama

Once Nina
Was a young girl
Now she's dead
Grew older
Grew colder and lost her way

Mama

Where's your mama gone?
Where's your mama gone?
Where's your mama gone?
Where's Your mama gone?
Far far away
Far far away

    General CommentI love her voice in this song. This is what White Chalk should have been; I'm not talking exact duplicate, I mean, as far as minimal instrumentation, passion, sad/fucked-up tales, and interesting vocals. Love it! (Though to be honest I did really like White Chalk, just thought it had lots more potential).

    General CommentThis belongs on "Is This Desire?" between "No Girl So Sweet" and the closing track, in my opinion. Incredible.

    General CommentNina hagen had a whole album called nina in ecstasy (that also included a song called prima nina in ecstasy) back in the 80s. for the record, i have never really listened to much of harvey's music, but i just thought this was a really funny coincidence. and i assume it's a coincidence because i can really think of no reason in the universe why she would jack this title off someone like nina hagen of all people, and because the songs could not be anymore different from each other.

    General CommentThe Nina Hagen thing gets brought up a lot, but Polly actually said she got the title from a porn movie (strange but true - soundcloud.com/evoljane/…).

    At any rate, I think this is probably the sweetest, prettiest song I've ever heard. There's just something so pure and innocent about it. Beautiful.
