E Cmaj7 Standing firm on this...stony ground, the wind blows hard,
APulls these clothes around, I... harbour all the same worries as most,
Fmaj7The 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) Fmaj7And shadowy light, I struggle with words, for fear that they'll hear,
Gm7 Amaj7But 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,
AAnd 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,
Fmaj7But the baggage is swallowed up by the tide
Gm7 Amaj7As 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!

E Sleepers sleep, while we... row the boat,
Cmaj7Just 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,
Fmaj7But we feel secure against such might dreams,
Gm7 Amaj7As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may... bring!

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!
