Bm F# GThey're taking pictures of the man from God
D AI hope his cassock's clean
Bm F# GThe burden of being a holy fellow
D A DYour halo better gleam, better gleam
D5 A BmWhat of all those wayward priests?
D AThe ones who like to drink
D5 A BmDo you suppose they'd swap their blood for wine
D A DLike you swapped yours for ink, for ink
Bm F# GYou wrote me oh so many letters
D AAnd all of them seemed true
Bm F# GPromises look good on paper
D A DEspecially from you, from you
D5 A BmThe weight of all those willing words
D AI carried all alone
D5 A BmYou wouldn't put your pen to bed
D A DWhen we hadn't found our own, our own
G Em D A G Em D A
Bm F# GYour sentences rose high at night
D AAnd circled round my head
Bm F# GThe circle's since been broken
D A DLike the priest before me is breaking bread
D5 A BmI'm being asked to drink the blood of Christ
D AAnd soon I'll eat his flesh
D5 A BmI'm alone again before the altar
D A DShedding all my old regrets
Bm F# GThe last of which I'll tell you now
D AAs it flies down the sink
Bm F# GI never knew a part of you
D A DYou didn't set in ink, in ink
D5 A BmThe letters that you left behind
D ANo longer shall I read
D5 A BmYour blood's between the pages
D A DAnd I can't stand to see you bleed
Bm F# G F# G A Bm F# G F# G A D D5 D G D5 A D5 D G D5 A D D5 D G D5 A D5 D G D5 A D
Bm F# GAnd I'll soon forget what was never there
D AYour words are ash and dust
Bm F# GAll that's left is the song I've sung
D A DThe breath I've taken and the one I must
D5 A BmIf you're born with a love for the wrote and the writ
D APeople of letters your warning stands clear
D5 A BmPay heed to your heart and not to your wit
D A DDon't say in a letter what you can't in my ear
Bm F# G D A Bm F# G D A D D5 A Bm D A D5 A Bm D A D
