The Messenger  Daniel Lanois


Words and music by Daniel Lanois
[Bbm]Got a [C#]letter from [F#]a messe[Ab]nger
[Bbm]I re[C#]ad it when it [F#]came
[Bbm]It s[C#]aid that you were [F#]wante[Ab]d[Bbm]
[C#]You were bound and c[Ab]hained
[C#]You had loved and you were ha[F#]ndled
[C#]You were poisoned you were[Ab] paved
Oh [Bbm]no, Oh [F#]no you were [Ab]naked you were [C#]shamed
You could almost touch heaven
Right there in front of you
Liberty just slipped away from us
Now there's so much work to do
Oh the door that closes tightly
Is the door that can't swing wide
Oh no, Oh no but expecting to collide
[C#]For a minute I let [F#]my guard down
Not afraid to be found [C#]out
Completely [F#]forgotten
What our feels where all [C#]about
Oh [Bbm]no, Oh [F#]no there's no [Ab]need to be[C#] without
There's a chance and I will take it
This desire I can't give
Take my heart please don't break it
I will crawl to your foothill
I'm frightened but I'm coming
Please baby please lay still
Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
Oh no, oh no not coming for the kill
