The Doors - The Crystal Ship Copyright - 1967 Elektra Records "The Crystal Ship" is a song by The Doors from their 1967 debut album The Doors. It was also the B-Side of the #1 hit single, "Light My Fire." It is regarded as a goodbye love song to Jim Morrison's first love, Mary Werbelo. Like much of The Doors' work, it sets up an eerie, dark flow. It's rumored to have been the band's first long song, especially for Ray Manzarek's and Robby Krieger's improvisations, but was changed by When The Music's Over. The inspiration for the "crystal ship" is an oil rig off of Sand's beach in Isla Vista, California. John Densmore "co-writer" states: "Jim wrote The Crystal Ship for Mary Werbelo in 1964, a girlfriend with whom he was breaking up, it was in his famous notebook of poetry he had when we formed. (sic),. . . . The song was a goodbye love song." The song was covered by Duran Duran for their 1995 covers album Thank You. It was also covered by pianist George Winston on his album Night Divides the Day - The Music of the Doors. The song also appears on The X-files Movie Soundtrack by X. The song has also appeared in television. An episode of Supernatural (TV series) -season two's Born Under a Bad Sign- uses the song in a particularly dark setting. Lyrics: Before you slip into unconsciousness I'd like to have another kiss Another flashing chance at bliss Another kiss, another kiss The days are bright and filled with pain Enclose me in your gentle rain The time you ran was too insane We'll meet again, we'll meet again Oh tell me where your freedom lies The streets are fields that never die Deliver me from reasons why You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly The crystal ship is being filled A thousand girls, a thousand thrills A million ways to spend your time When we get back, I'll drop a line
