Blood Of Eden

Peter Gabriel

intro
 BbEb

 BbEb
  I caught sight of my reflection
 Bb
I caught it in the window
 Eb
I saw the darkness in my heart
 Bb
 I saw the signs of my undoing
 Eb
 They had been there from the start
 Bb
 And the darkness still has work to do
 Eb
 The knotted chord's untying
 Bb
The heated and the holy
 Eb
Oh they're sitting there on high
 BbEb
So secure with everything they're buying

chorus
 AbEbBbCm
In the blood of Eden     lie the woman and the man
 AbEbBbCm
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man     
 AbEbBbCm
In the blood of Eden     lie the woman and the man
 AbEbBbAb/BbBb
We wanted the the union    oh the union of the woman, 
 Fm/BbEb
the woman and the man

 BbEb
My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my hold
Yes I think I've lost my hold
I cannot get insurance any more
They don't take credit, only gold
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
You hold so tightly in your hand
And all the while the distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

chorus
 Fm/BbCm
the woman and the man

bridge
 CmCm/AbBbBb/GCm/Ab
 At my request  you take me in
 CmCm/AbBbBb/GCm/AbCm
 In that tenderness I am floating away
 Cm/AbBbBb/GCm/Ab
No certainty, nothing to rely on
 CmCm/AbBbBb/GCm/Ab
  Holding still  for a moment
 F
What a moment this is
 Cm/Ab
Oh for a moment of forgetting
 F
moment of bliss
 EbBb,Eb
 Oh....   

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

chorus (without last line)
 AbEbBbCm
I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man     
In the blood of Eden we have done everything we can
In the blood of Eden, so we end as we began
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
 AbEbBbAb/BbBbFm/BbCm
It was all for the union,   oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man
