The Gaslight Anthem – Underneath The Ground lyrics

[Verse 1]
That's enough, my man, it's time to clap our hands
Call the papers up tomorrow, say we did the best we can
Cause the doctors in the hospital and the poet just laid down
There's one good man I know, he can't talk right now

[Bridge]
I'd like to hear what you'd say to me
If I was bulletproof and free again
Or what you'd shout if I was dead in the ground
And buried under another name
?

[Chorus]
What would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God outloud
Would you cry, cry cause I was gone
Would you spit in his and curse my name?
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down to me underneath the ground?

[Verse 2]
Now who you think I am? Worse than all the rest
That's what I'm in now, just like no one said
Did anybody see that there's a crack right down my head?
Mama had a cheer for us, but the blood drips down our legs

[Bridge]
I'd like to know if you could see through the soul
Like I could see through your soul like them
And reach your hands through all the hurt and the pain
Would you still try if you knew I was gone?

[Chorus]
What would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God outloud
Would you cry, cry cause I was gone
Would you spit in his and curse my name?
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down to me underneath the ground?

[Chorus]
What would you talk about if I loved her now?
Tell my sins to God outloud
Would you cry, cry cause I was gone
Would you spit in his and curse my name?
And embarrass me to the other graves?
Would you lay right down to me underneath the ground?
