Chords:
Transpose:
[PERSEPHONE]
BbHades, my husband, Hades, my light
GmHades, my darkness
BbIf you had heard how he sang tonight
GmYou'd pity poor Orpheus!
Dm DAll of his sorrow won't fit in his chest
Gm Bb FIt just burns like a fire in the pit of his chest
Gm Bb FAnd his heart is a bird on a spit in his chest
Bb F GmHow long, how long, how long?
[HADES]
BbHow long? Just as long as Hades is King
Eb GmNothing comes of wishing on stars
Bb BbAnd nothing comes of the songs people sing
GmHowever sorry they are
Gm Dm DGive them a piece and they'll take it all
Gm Bb FShow them the crack and they'll tear down the wall
Gm Bb FLend them an ear and the Kingdom will fall
Bb F GmThe Kingdom will fall for a song
[PERSEPHONE]
Bb FWhat does he care for the logic of kings?
GmThe laws of your underworld?
Bb FIt is only for love that he sings!
GmHe sings for the love of a girl!
[HADES]
Gm Dm DYou and your pity don't fit in my bed
Gm Bb FYou just burn like a fire in the pit of my bed
Gm Bb FAnd I turn like a bird on a spit in my bed
Bb F GmHow long, how long, how long?
[PERSEPHONE]
Bb CHow long? Just as long as I am your wife
GmIt's true the earth must die
CBut then the earth comes back to life
GmAnd the sun just goes on rising
[HADES & PERSEPHONE]
Gm Dm DAnd how does the sun even fit in the sky?
Gm Bb DmIt just burns like a fire in the pit of the sky
Gm Bb AmAnd the earth is a bird on a spit in the sky
Bb D GmHow long, how long, how long?
