The Gaslight Anthem – Keepsake lyrics

It's been 31 years since she's been in your arms
But don't worry about mama, mama's got a good heart.
And I'm not looking for your love, I'm only sniffing out blood
Just a little taste of where I came from.

At the bottom of this river,
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it.
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lie while I learned to live with it.
Until I'm free

And it's been all my life, I've been wandering on the inside
What we could have had here if you'd been a part of my life.
And there were children involved and they were brothers to me,
Even if we never got to meet.

At the bottom of this river,
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lie while I learned to live with it.

Until I'm free at last from this shadow that hangs
Surely you wonder sometimes,
And I'm sure you all sympathize,
Just what a man's to become,
But just like his daddy has done,
I just want to love someone who has the same blood, who has the same blood.

And at the bottom of this river,
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lie while I learned to live with it.
Keepsake, the keepsake.
'Till I'm free
