Edie (Ciao Baby) Lyrics

Artist: The Cult
Album: Love

Always said you were a Youthquaker, Edie
A stormy little world shaker
Warhol's darling queen, Edie
An angel with a broken wing

The dogs lay at your feet, Edie
We carressed you cheek
Stars wrapped in your hair, Edie
Life without a care
But your not there
Your never there

Caught up in an endless scene
Paradise a shattered dream
Why'd all the shit you took, Edie
Your innocence dripped blood, sweet child

Sweet little sugar talker
Paradise dream stealer
Warhol's Darling queen, Edie
Innocence dripped blood, sweet child

Why did you kiss the world goodbye
Ciao Baby
Don't you know paradise takes time
It takes time, but your not there
Fade away now
But your not there
Ciao Edie

If these lyrics are right, then it would seem The Cult doesn't know the words to their own song. :P

Agree with Mike ;)

One of my favorites! But.....
In the third set of verses its not
"Why,d all the shit..."
Its "wired on the pills ya took Edie"
And...it doesnt repeat The part of innocence. That should repeat the angel with a broken wing line.

This lyric is amazing ... Evergreen in my list if you know what i mean ;o)

These lyrics are wrong in several areas of the song!
by chipster on 10/23/2008 2:34pm
Yeah, it's "Oh WIND caressed your cheek, Edie" NOT "WE caressed your cheek" , found this error on most sites. And Your/You're... just bad.
by Jake on 12/30/2008 11:03pm
I do not believe that Christopher is right. I listened to the song again and I'm pretty sure the words "Oh WE caressed your cheek, Edie" are correct.
by mike on 2/11/2009 12:34pm
Wow, these are almost completely wrong. Who put these lyrics on here.
by tRds on 2/22/2009 12:02am
Bullshit. They're perfectly right.

Lol@the noob that thinks these lyrics are right, I'm not even a huge fan of the cult, but to disrespect them with incorrect lyrics is so rude.
by Andy on 12/16/2009 8:12am
It looks like they were attempting the acoustic version from the album Best of Rare Cult (2000). But even if that's the case there's more than a couple mistakes.

ya know.....i have the live dvd and studio dvd and with the words coming on the screen does not match what they have on here....do not trust internet bullshit...i am a true fan of these guys.have met them with the outlaws.good people/blackhills rock

you're, not your.

and right above, jack and chipster. the wind caressed the cheek, and she was very much wired on pills... ciao edie, hauntingly beautiful song.
by Brian on 10/9/2010 2:42am
These lyrics are so wrong, lol. I know Ian's accent makes it tough to decipher what he's saying sometimes, but shit.. some of this stuff is WAY off!
by Duke Kevorkian on 11/12/2010 10:11pm
Jack you are very correct...for ever I thought 'why all the shit you took' when the demo clearly is 'wired on the pills you took'...either way it would acutally be appropriate....
by stefano on 3/28/2011 4:36am
murder she wrote
by Freakishly devout fan on 2/24/2012 10:21pm
yeah, they're wrong. Not totally wrong, but wrong. "Wired on the pills you took, Edie". oh by the way noob; I think you meant knob
by ksibln on 4/29/2013 9:17am
Can you imagine that different versions of the song exist ? :-)

My version is identical to the above lyrics.
by jeff on 6/27/2013 9:13am
you know what? im thankful i got what i did from the supplier.
minor editions can be done by us. no need to slate someone for giving. fuck you people for criticising someone for just giving.
by Tom on 7/11/2014 6:38pm
Kind of makes me think how easy it is for us to slip away...God Bless you Edie S.
