Mary Gauthier – Morphine 1-2 Lyrics

Rotors spin as she’s running for the bell
She was a fearless pilot with a heart of gold
I never really knew her all that well
She had one more flight and she was headed home

Sprinting hard ’cause there were lives to save
He was a young marine with an iron cross tattoo
A little cocky, righteous, strong and brave
The co-pilot, Morphine 1-2

And my head knows but my heart can’t see
And it’s not like it should’ve been me
But I wish I had been there on that day
Even now, I’d take their place

Seven souls took off on that flight
It was a desert blood drop in the light of day
A few more seconds could’ve saved their lives
But the story wasn’t gonna end that way

And my head knows but my heart can’t see
And it’s not like it should’ve been me
But I wish I had been there on that day
Even now, I’d take their place

Seven stars shine down on me now
Lights that burn in everything I do
Till we meet again someday, somehow
Semper Fi, Morphine 1-2

And my head knows but my heart can’t see
And it’s not like it should’ve been me
Still I wish that I’d been there on that day
Even now, I’d take their place
