The Gravedigger's Song
Mark Lanegan Lyrics


With piranha teeth
I been dreaming of you
And the taste of your love so sweet
Honest its true

Through my heart flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
Where the gravedigger’s sung his song
You’ve been torturing me
Tout est noir, mon amour
Tout est blanc
Je t’aime, mon amour
Comme j’aime la nuit

Love, is the medicine good?
Is the crow flying eight miles high?
Over wire and wood

Shovel down six feet
With a head heavy pain
But magnolia blooms so sweet
And it fades just the same

To the stars my love
To the sea
To the wheels my love
Till they roll all over me

Oh love, I been thinking of you
With razor white teeth so sharp
Honest its true

In my blood flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
But magnolia blooms so sweet
Only torturing me

To the stars my love
To the sea
To the wheels my love
Till they roll all over me

With piranha teeth
I've been dreaming of you
And the taste of your love, so sweet
Honest, it's true

Through my heart flows sleep
And the dark, heavy rain
Where the gravedigger's song is sung
You've been torturing me

Tout est noir, mon amour
Tout est blanc
Je t'aime, mon amour
Comme j'aime la nuit

Love, is the medicine good?
Is the crow flying eight miles high
Over wire and wood?

Shovel down six feet
With a head heavy pain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
And it fades just the same

To the stars, my love

To the wheels, my love

Oh love, I've been thinking of you
With razor white teeth, so sharp
Honest, it's true

In my blood flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
Only torturing me

To the stars, my love
To the sea
To the wheels, my love
'Til they roll all over me

I hate to repeat myself, but here goes... What I love about this guy, apart from the voice, the soul, the chills down the spine, is that he makes each album as if it was his last... of the few artists whose quality improves as time goes by.

Couldn't agree more this guy has endless creative talent

I think what i love about this entire album is how it has this pretty pink floral album artwork and there is no way of knowing how bluesy and soulful the album is nor are you expecting Mark's voice.

God, I'm so happy he works so much. He's seriously the most underrated singer of all time.

Heard this song on some beautifully weird radio station when driving home from work after midnight in North Carolina in 2017. Fell in love with Mark's sound at that moment and perused it ever since.

Haven't heard the full album yet, but hopefully as classic as Bubblegum!
