Marianne Faithfull - Sister Morphine lyrics

Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine
When are you coming around again?
Oh I don't think I can wait that long
Oh you see that my pain is so strong

All the other patients say
They've never seen a man with such pain
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 ear
So 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
Can't you see, Sister Morphine?
Just tryin' to score

Well the actions go to show
Things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine
Turn my nightmare into dream
Oh can't you see that I'm fading fast?
And this shot will be the last

Please, cousin Cocaine
Lay your cool hands on my head
Hey, Sister Morphine
You better make up the black bed
'Cause you know and I know
That you want me, I'll be dead
You sit around and watch
The clean white sheets stained red
