"Bring It On" as written by Jeffrey David Stevens, Michael James Peterson and Steve Bogard....
This garden that I built for you
That you sit in now and yearn
I will never leave it, dear
I could not bear to return
And find it all untended
With the trees all bended low
This garden is our home, dear
And I got nowhere else to go

So bring it on
Bring it on
Every little tear
Bring it on
Every useless fear
Bring it on
All your shattered dreams
And I'll scatter them into the sea
Into the sea

The geraniums on your window sill
The carnations, dear, and the daffodil
Well, they're ordinary flowers
But they long for the light of your touch
And of your trembling will
Ah, you're trembling still
And I am trembling too
To be perfectly honest I don't know
Quite what else to do

So bring it on
Bring it on
Every neglected dream
Bring it on
Every little scheme
Bring it on
Every little fear
And I'll make them disappear

So bring it on, bring it on
Bring it on
Every little thing
Bring it on
Every tiny fear
Bring it on
Every shattered dream
And I'll scatter them into the sea

    General CommentBest song on Nocturne by miles.
    It's a reaffirment of being in love with someone who is scared, upset, and messed over by the past. Telling them that they're just as scared but who cares - BRING IT ON - they'll deal with all the baggage and make them happy.

    Or maybe that's just me? :D

    General CommentD'Oh!
    Funny how you can have an album for a fair few years and continually misread things. Ahh well.

    General CommentHaha !

    I agree it's by far the best song on the album and also one of Nick Cave's best I think, and I love the video for some reason.
