blanket of sorrow lyrics – jason & the scorchers

blanket of sorrow
well, i sang in your morning, i sang in your night.
dusty old travels and forty watt lights.
but lovin’ to you was like the sand in the river.
you call me ‘my darling’ and i call you ‘indian giver’.
with a blanket of sorrow i lie in my bed.
four walls are a prison when your heart’s in your head.
your soul is an icebox when you go where you’re led.
with a blanket of sorrow i die in your bed.
well, now daylight is here, the morning is come
but a blanket of sorrow still covers the sun.
night isn’t over, it’s still dark outside.
black blanket death now is nowhere to hide.
with a blanket of sorrow i lie in my bed.
four walls are a prison when your heart’s in your head.
your soul is an icebox when you go where you’re led.
with a blanket of sorrow i die in your bed.
with a blanket of sorrow i lay in your arms
but nothing will come of this pain.
i’m sorry, they told me, it’s been felt before
and probably will be again.
with a blanket of sorrow i lie in my bed.
four walls are a prison when your heart’s in your head.
your soul is an icebox when you go where you’re led.
with a blanket of sorrow i die in your bed.
