READ THIS: This song is difficult to play, and I've tried my best to point out the
little things (such as when sections change), but you will have to listen to the song to know
where and when to switch chords, and how to play the song regarding force and such, as 
all those things were too hard for me to write out in a way that you would understand.

This is made completely by ear, and is played on the piano but works just as well on any
other instrument (e.g. guitar). I found that none of the other interpretations on this
site did the original justice, so here's to this beautiful, beautiful song.

If you would like me to take out any other song Patrick has made, I would be glad to.
Message me, and I'll see what I can do!

VERSE 1:
Cm Fm DbAs the bell tower blocks the summer light
Cm Fm DbAll the seeds in our garden fight
Fm Eb DbTo break and blossom, all to be adored
Cm Fm DbAnd look, your skirt is torn
DbAnd there's blood on our sheets
Cm Fm DbAs comes the long arm of the law
Cm Fm DbFist tight, banging on the door
Fm Eb DbAnd knocking me down
(Slower, and stroke the last chord and then mute it just before entering the second half of the verse)
Cm Fm DbOn its way in
Cm Fm DbAs I pass out into a dream
Cm Fm DbOf whooping cranes and wooden beams
Fm Eb DbGreat white wings beating
(Slower)
Cm Fm DbIn an attic, in a house, in the dead of night
Singing CHORUS 1:
Db EbOh, my

(This part goes into the verse)

VERSE 2:
Cm Fm DbDoes it mean that I can never change my ways?
Cm Fm DbAnd that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
Fm Eb DbStill you will and love me
Cm Fm DbLike a mother or a maid bringing you
Cm Fm Dbdown, down, down on your brazen knees
Cm Fm DbWatering the worms and the weeds
Fm Eb DbThinking, why does love leave me
Cm Fm DbSo damn cold? Now I'm getting old
DbAnd is this what it should be?
Well, is it? CHORUS 2:
Db EbOh, my
Fm Cm Db Fm Cm DbAugustine, Augustine

BRIDGE: Ab Eb/G Ab Eb/G Db VERSE 3:
Cm Fm DbAnd now come the tears, heavy and hot
Cm Fm DbAs it comes clear, this is all we got
Fm Eb DbAs I hold you to my bed like a

DbLoving nurse, as we fall back
Db Eb FmInto the impossible dream
