Em G C
Em G CAs the bell tower blocks the summer light
Em G CAll the seeds in our garden fight
Em D C BTo break and blossom, all to be adored
CAnd look, your skirt is torn
DAnd there's blood on our sheets
Em G CAs comes the long arm of the law
Em G CFist tight, banging on the door
Em D C B C DAnd knocking me down on its way in
As I pass out into a dream
Of whooping cranes and wooden beams
Great white wings beating
In an attic, in a house, in the dead of night
C D Em D C Em D COh, my Augustine, Augustine
C D Em D C Em D COh, is this forever, ever?
Em D C Em D CSweet Augustine, Augustine
C DWhat does this mean for us?
Does it mean that I can never change my ways?
And that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
Still you will and love me
Like a mother or a maid bringing you down, down
Down on your brazen knees
Watering the worms and the weeds
Thinking, why does love leave me so damn cold?
Now I'm getting old
And is this what it should be?
Well, is it?
Oh, my Augustine, Augustine.
Oh, is this forever, ever?
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
C D G COr do we kill this one tonight?
Em G CAnd now come the tears, heavy and hot
Em G CAs it comes clear, this is all we got
Em D CAs I hold you to my bed
B CLike a cancer, or a curse
Em D C EmAs we fall back into the impossible dream
