Blood Of Eden (Peter Gabriel)
 

{c:intro} [Bb] [Eb] [Bb] I caught sight of my re[Eb]flection I caught it in the [Bb]window I saw the darkness in my [Eb]heart [Bb]I saw the signs of my undoing [Eb]They had been there from the start [Bb]And the darkness still has work to do [Eb]The knotted chord's untying The [Bb]heated and the holy Oh they're [Eb]sitting there on high So se[Bb]cure with everything they're [Eb]buying {c:chorus} {soc} In the blood of [Ab]Eden [Eb] lie the [Bb]woman and the [Cm]man With the [Ab]man in the [Eb]woman and the [Bb]woman in the [Cm]man In the blood of [Ab]Eden [Eb] lie the [Bb]woman and the [Cm]man We wanted the the [Ab]union [Eb] [Bb]oh the [Ab/Bb]union of the [Bb]woman, {eoc} the [Fm/Bb]woman and the [Eb]man [Bb] [Eb] My grip is surely slipping I think I've lost my hold Yes I think I've lost my hold I cannot get insurance any more They don't take credit, only gold Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see You hold so tightly in your hand And all the while the distance grows between you and me I do not understand {c:chorus} the [Fm/Bb]woman and the [Cm]man {c:bridge} [Cm]At [Cm/Ab]my re[Bb]quest [Bb/G] you [Cm/Ab]take me in [Cm]In that [Cm/Ab]tender[Bb]ness[Bb/G] I am [Cm/Ab]floating a[Cm]way No [Cm/Ab]certain[Bb]ty,[Bb/G] nothing to [Cm/Ab]rely on [Cm] [Cm/Ab]Holding [Bb]still [Bb/G] for a [Cm/Ab]moment What a [F]moment this is Oh for a [Cm/Ab]moment of forgetting A [F]moment of bliss [Eb]Oh.... [Bb,] [Eb] I can hear the distant thunder Of a million unheard souls Of a million unheard souls Watch each one reach for creature comfort For the filling of their holes {c:chorus (without last line)} I feel the [Ab]man in the [Eb]woman and the [Bb]woman in the [Cm]man In the blood of Eden we have done everything we can In the blood of Eden, so we end as we began With the man in the woman and the woman in the man It was all for the [Ab]union,[Eb] [Bb]oh the [Ab/Bb]union of the [Bb]woman, the [Fm/Bb]woman and the [Cm]man
