oh my darling, you are the restless sea. with your black heart raging over me. has the blue sky seen the same trouble as we? tell me true, my 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 rust and sorrow lie underneath the bounding main tonight.

and by now, you must’ve found better than me... i’m sure that 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.

and yes, i’ve come to know you are the endless night. high above my love, and the constellation light. waving your fingertips of sleep over the dark on the face of the deep. endless night, i know you well, indeed.

Sweet Morphine

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?
Tell me true, my 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 rust and sorrow lie
Underneath the bounded main tonight

By now, you must've 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

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

By now you must've 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

By now you must've found better than me
I'm sure Jupiter and Orpheus have charmed you off your feet
Oh, by now I'm sure you've gotten over me
While you're kissing clouds and gods, I'll be crawling on my knees

Wasn't crazy about this song on first listen but after a few spins I've grown to love it.

Dat chorus, man.

This is more of a general comment.
Ian plays lead on this right? Or at least I read that slide guitar was his idea if I remember correctly. This is by far my favorite song from Get Hurt. Its interesting that Elsie is my favorite album and he obviously had say in that. Its interesting that hes directly in my favorite works. He and Brian work well together.

As for this song..like I said. By far my favorite on the album if not in general. The chorus kills me every time.

I definitely hear 'I will hold you in my arms where LUST and sorrow lie'. I am sure that is the lyrics and I think that would make more sense too. Anyone else hear this?

this song is perfect.
btw i do hear rust :/ and i think it does make sense if you think about it from the perspective of the song being about how love is now gone and how much he is suffering about it because she is no longer in his arms (hence the rust, if you will)
