I'm Looking Forward To Joining You, Finally

This is the only available version. On the vinyl edition of The Fragile, the introductory strings simply begin, as opposed to fading in on top of "Complication" as on the CD.

Live

This is one of the few songs that Nine Inch Nails has never performed live.

Lyrics

    As black as the night can get
    Everything is safer now
    There's always a way to forget
    Once you learn to find a way how
    
    In the blur of serenity
    Where did everything get lost?
    The flowers of naïveté
    Buried in a layer of frost
    
    The smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
    
    Thought he had it all before they called his bluff
    Found out that his skin just wasn't thick enough
    Wanted to go back to how it was before
    Thought he lost everything
    Then he lost a whole lot more
    
    A fool's devotion
    Swallowed up in empty space
    The tears of regret
    Frozen to the side of his face
    
    The smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
    
    I've done all I can do
    Could I please come with you?
    Sweet smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
