      I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
      I saw the signs of my undoing 
      They had been there from the start
      And the darkness still has work to do
      The knotted chord's untying
They're heated and they're holy
Oh they're sitting there on high
So secure with everything they're buying

                G       D
In the blood of Eden
            A                    
Lie the woman and the man
         G              D
With the man in the woman
             A                   
And the woman in the man
                G        D
In the blood of Eden
           A                    
Lie the woman and the man
               G        D
We wanted the union
A                            
Oh the union of the woman
       A                       
The woman and the man

      My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my hold
Yes, I think I've lost my hold
      I cannot get insurance anymore
      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

                G       D
In the blood of Eden
            A                    
Lie the woman and the man
         G              D
With the man in the woman
             A                   
And the woman in the man
                G        D
In the blood of Eden
           A                    
Lie the woman and the man
               G        D
We wanted the union
A                            
Oh the union of the woman
       A                        D
The woman and the man


Bm                A                           Bm
      At my request, you take me in
                   A                           Bm
In that tenderness, I am floating away
              A                        Bm
No certainty, nothing to rely on
              A
Holding still
         Bm
For a moment
           E
What a moment this is
             Bm
Oh for a moment of forgetting
    E   Esus4     E2
A moment of bliss
D                          A
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

A                                     D
     I can hear the distant thunder
                                 A
Of a million unheard souls
                                  D
Of a million unheard souls
A                                                         D
     Watch each one reach for creature comfort
A                                    D
     For the filling of their holes


                G       D
In the blood of Eden
            A                    
Lie the woman and the man
