"Sister Morphine" lyrics

Sister Morphine

Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, sister Morphine
When are you coming round again?
Oh, 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 nightmares 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
Cause 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
