The Gaslight Anthem – Sweet Morphine lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Oh, my darling, you are the restless sea
With your black heart raging over me
Has the blue sky seen the same troubles as we?
To be true, I love the restless sea
There are three things never satisfied:
The grave, your heart, and mine
But I will hold you in my arms,
Where the rust and sorrow lie
Underneath the bounding main tonight

[Chorus:]
By now you must have found better than me
I'm sure Jupiter and Orpheus have charmed you off your feet
By now, I'm sure you've gotten over me
While you're kissing clouds and gods
I'll be crawling on my knees
Sweet morphine, sweet morphine

[Verse 2:]
And yes I've come to know, you are the endless night
High above my love and my constellation light
Waving your fingertips of sleep
Over the dark on the face of the deep
Endless night, I know you well, indeed

[Chorus:]
By now you must have found better than me
I'm sure Jupiter and Orpheus have charmed you off your feet
By now, I'm sure you've gotten over me
While you're kissing clouds and gods
I'll be crawling on my knees
Sweet morphine, sweet morphine

[Interlude]

[Chorus:]
By now you must have found better than me
I'm sure Jupiter and Orpheus have charmed you off your feet
By now, I'm sure you've gotten over me
While you're kissing clouds and gods
I'll be crawling on my knees
Sweet morphine, sweet morphine
