  • I'll take one, 'cause I needed to feel it so much
    I had an emotional crutch, but
    I'm feeling bored so ill take some more
    Cause nothing is happening

    And once you told me that you loved me so much
    I foolishly began to trust, but
    Now I'm ignored and I'm taking more, till
    Something is happening.

    I'll take one 'cause I needed to feel it so much
    I needed that thing we call fun, but
    Now I'm ignored and ill take some more, till
    Something is happening

    Cause once I thought you were right here with me, so
    Maybe I'll take two or three
    Until I believe what I have seen is really happening.

    Morpheus! how could you leave me when I had need of your love?
    Stop holding back!
    Give me one reason to think you're decent
    When I am Alone

    Don't you ever try to bring me back
    With this one I needed to feel you so much,
    I wantingly longed for your touch, but
    Now I'm ignored and I'm feeling bored
    'Til something is happening.

    Because once I thought you were right here with me so
    Maybe I should take two or three
    Until I believe what I have seen is really happening

    With this one I needed to feel you so much
    I needed that thing we call fun, but
    Now I'm ignored and I'm feeling bored till something is happening.

    And once I thought you were right here with me, so
    Maybe I'll take two or three
    Until I believed that what I have seen is really happening.

    No no more
    God Morpheus why did you leave me when I had need of your love
    No holding back now! Give me the real thing!
    I've got a reason
    When I am alone

    Don't you ever try to take me back. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • KatI think what makes this song so great is so many people connect with it for different meanings. It's art.
  • Johnny from Panama City FloridaThe song is more about his trying to get a connection with Morpheus the goddess of Dreams his son died at a very young age and so he sees him in his dreams so he begging morpheus to bring him a dream
  • Andrew from 55744I met these guys just outside of Ft. Carson Colorado in 2005. It was a local small-time bar, but I had already about eight thousand times before I went to see them with some battle buddies :) ( Villa you know who you are ) They were personable as can be... down to earth as f--k! and his violin is describable... much respect and a must see live! go ARMY.
  • Ash from Rochester, Nyhow do we know if these songs are about his life or if there jus songs does he write all the songs does anyone know
  • Antonio from Brighton, CoThis song not only seems like a short story of addiction, but a need for human connection as well. For a full understanding of the song I think that you need to feel the sound and looking at the art work on the album.
  • Tom from England, United StatesThis song is great i mean J's voice as he bellows through it its so powerful.
