Sister Morphine Lyrics
Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine, when are you coming round again?
Oh, and I don’t think I can wait that long
Oh, you see that I’m not that strong
The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?
Oh, I can’t crawl across the floor
Ah, can’t you see, Sister Morphine, I’m trying to score?
Well, it just goes to show things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmare into dreams
Oh, can’t you see I’m fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last?
Sweet Cousin Cocaine, lay your cool, cool hand on my head
Ah, come on, Sister Morphine, you better make up my bed
Because you know, and I know, in the morning I’ll be dead
Yeah, and you can sit around, yeah, and you can watch
All the clean white sheets stained red
