Swallowed Up (In the Belly Of The Whale)


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

I fell asleep on a dark and starlit sea With nothing but the cloak of God's mercy over me I come upon strange earth and a great black cave I dreamt I awoke as if buried in my grave We've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up Disappeared from this world We've been swallowed up The bones of sailors from the north and sailors from the east Lay high in a pyre in the belly of a beast A beast should you wander in its path upon your ship and your flesh he'll sup You'll disappear from this world until you've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up Disappeared from this world We've been swallowed up We trusted our skills and our good sails Our faith that with God the righteous in this world prevail But we've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up Disappeared from this world We've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up We've been swallowed up Disappeared from this world We've been swallowed up
