I spent all day yesterday watching the grass grow
What I learned is that grass really grows slow
Now Im hanging around trying to get inspired
Punch a hole in my cage and I reach out blind

She said have patience
Everything will be all right
have patience
Give it just a little time
Everything will be all right

I spent all day yesterday sitting at a red light
Cause she told me to give it just a little more time
And I lost my car in a parking lot
Bought a newspaper and I decided to walk

She said have patience
Everything will be all right
have patience
Give it just a little time
Everything will be all right

I spent all day yesterday listening to the doorbell ring
Must have been a Sunday, I could hear the choir sing
And down in the graveyard theyre listening to the underground
They`re the only ones ever learn to calm down

Patience
Everything will be all right
have patience
Give it just a little time
Everything will be all right
Everything will be all right
Everything will be all
Everything will be all right

Wearing their influences right out there on their sleeve. Nope.

I don't think they were trying to "fool" anyone.

I agree.  too many similarities.

Celluloid Heroes, The Kinks. It's incredible how some musicians think they can fool everyone!
Yea, tis true, this is not usual Morphine fare, usually they are more sparse and dark, but I like it!
This is almost like an alternate-universe version of Morphine!  It's so full of layers...  I think I prefer their regular "low-rock," but this stuff is pretty good, too.

Exactly, it's a cover song. The original is "Celluloid Heros" from "The Kinks"


 
No, it's not a cover song. It's similar to "Celluloid Heroes," but there are enough differences to distinguish it from the Kinks' song.

Like the horns. The name of the band is appropriate, this is chilling me out... {#Meditate}
Awesome guitar here..............
I hate double-posting, but it's surprising that this song was covered—-hardly any Morphine song gets covered at all.

I still hear that sax.
And I like sax a lot. {#Mrgreen}

Almost as much as violins.

Most of us would have got the TH reference even without the link.
Fred, I think the original album version (on Sandbox) might be much more to your liking; the sexiphone makes its presence very well known on that version; metaphorically, it takes the driver's seat on that track, whereas it just stretches out in the back here.

Morphine minus sax equals Ho-Hum, going by this number in which the sax very much takes a back seat. The other Morphine stuff played on RP has been the dog's bollox, so this is a bit disappointing. 3 from the Nottingham jury.

This is a really great song. I've never given Morphine much consideration before, but I'm listening now...
I am a Florida kid, but I lived in Central Square, Cambridge, MA in the early 90's. I lived through the "storm of the century" and another horrible winter two years later. One of the things that got me through it intact was a drinking couple of pints of "springtime" aka Harpoon IPA while listening to Mark Sandman with one of his side project bands at the Green Street Grill every Tuesday night. I miss this inventive soul.

I just figured that out. Surprised that it's his song.

I know this one from a CD by Catie Curtis - My Shirt Looks Good On You, 2001. It says the composer was M. Sandman. Anyone know who that is?

I missed this release last year.  Thanks for playing this.
Outstanding, like all Morphine + nice cover/
A posthumous release?
