 Eadd9                         Cmaj7          Cmaj7/E  
| /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ |

  A                            Fmaj7
| /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ |


E                                            Cmaj7
   Standing firm on this...stony ground, the wind blows hard,
                               A
Pulls these clothes around, I...  harbour all the same worries as most,
            Fmaj7
The temp - tations to leave, or to give up the ghost,
D                     Bm/F#          Bm/A   G                            
   I wrestle with an outlook on life that shifts between darkness, 
    G6(type2)         Fmaj7
And shadowy light, I struggle with words, for fear that they'll hear,
      Gm7                                         Amaj7
But Orpheus sleeps on his back, still dead to the world!


E                                                Cmaj7
   Sunlight falls, my wings open wide, there's a beauty here, I cannot deny,
       A
And bottles that tumble, and crash on the stairs, 
        Fmaj7                               D                    Bm/F#
Are just so many people I knew never cared,   down below, on the wreck of the ship,
   Bm/A   G                       G6(type2)               
Are a stronghold of pleasures I couldn't regret, 
         Fmaj7
But the baggage is swallowed up by the tide
     Gm7                                         Amaj7
As Orpheus keeps to his promise, and stays by my side!


Fmaj7 Fmaj9 Fmaj7      G6  Gadd9         G6
             Tell me,       I've still a lot to learn,
Fmaj7    Fmaj9     Fmaj7  G6  Gadd9        G6
      I understand,           these fires never stop,
Fmaj7      Fmaj9 Fmaj7     G6       Gadd9         G6
      Be - lieve--    me,      when this joke is tired of laughing,
Fmaj7    Fmaj9      Fmaj7        G6            Bb    Asus4
  I will-----  hear....    the promise of my Orpheus sing!


 Eadd9                         Cmaj7          Cmaj7/E  
| /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ |

  A                            Fmaj7
| /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ | /_/_/  /_/_/ |


E                                                
   Sleepers sleep, while we... row the boat, 
    Cmaj7
Just you, the weather, and I gave up hope,
     A                   
But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps... 
       Fmaj7
...was fuel for the fire, and straw for our backs,
D                         Bm/F#           
   Still the voices have stories to tell... 
   Bm/A  G                  G6(type2)
Of the power struggles in heaven & hell,
   Fmaj7
But we feel secure against such might dreams,
    Gm7                                         Amaj7
As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may... bring!
