Bruce Springsteen Swallowed Up Lyrics

Last updated: 02/28/2012 10:00:00 AM

I fell asleep
On a dark and starless sea
With nothing but the cloak
Of God's mercy over me

I come upon strange earth
And to 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

Bones of sailors from the north
And sailors from the east
Lay high and up high
In the in the belly of a beast

A beast should you wander in its path
On your ship and your flesh you serve
You disappear from this world
'Till you've been swallowed up

We've been swallowed up
We've been swallowed up
Disappeared from this world
We've been swallowed up

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

We trusted our skills
And our good selves
Put 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

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
