Lyrics and explanation


The Lion & The Cobra

Lyrics Sinead O'Connor
Jackie
Jackie left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he'd be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
Leaving me all alone
And I've been dead for twenty years
I've been washing the sand
With my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie-oh

I remember the day the young man came
He said, "your Jackie's gone
We got lost in the rain"
And I ran to the beach
And laid me down

"You're all wrong", I said
And they stared at the sand
"That man knows that sea
Like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time
laughing at you"

And I've been waiting all this time
For my man to come
Take his hand in mine
And lead me away
To unseen shores

I've been washing the sand
With my salty tears
Searching the shore
For these long years
And I'll walk the seas forever more
Till I find my Jackie oh
Till I find my Jackie oh
Till I find my Jackie oh
Jackie oh
Jackie oh
Jackie oh
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

Jackie by Sinead O'Connor. After Kate Bush, another very free artist...

Stefan Olsdal: A great artist who, I understand, decided to give it all up definitely. A pity ... Still, this song is beautiful. It is for a man who is leaving her. By covering it, as the three of us are guys, we somewhat perverted  the meaning and we like that. It adds a sexual ambiguity that looks like us...



"Brian Molko", Midi Libre, 27th October 2003
