NOTES:
I've transcribed the beautiful piano INTRO, that you might want to try if
you have a second guitar to play the chords.
On the record there is a backing vocal line that runs through the last chorus.
I've added it here only for the sake of completeness.
This is a cool song with some great changes. Hope you enjoy!

VERSE:
Chords:
C#m x46654 A x02220
G#m 455444 B x24442
E 022100
[C#m]Tinker-[G#m]bell, my [E]winged [B]friend, I [A]think we got it [B]wrong.
No [C#m]fairy [G#m]tale or [E]happy [B]end, just [A]prehistoric [B]songs.
A [C#m]crystal [G#m]in my [E]baby's [B]eyes, I [A]want what I can't [B]love
So [C#m]now I've [G#m]learnt how [E]to des[B]pise, I [A]think I've learnt e[B]nough...
CHORUS:
Chords:
E 022100 B x24442
A x02220 B7 x2120x
[F#m] [244222]  
If blood is [E]blood, then blood will [A]flow
That's all it [F#m]does, that's all it [B]knows
But I've one [E]question, I want [A]something, I want [B]more.
Flesh is [E]flesh, an urgent [A]fire
It drags you [F#m]down, this cheap de[B]sire.
We all want [E]something, maybe [A]beauty, maybe [B]more...
VERSE:
Absolution, constitution, leave it all behind
Take off your shirt, your worried face, and let me lose your mind.
I thought that I might change the world, but all I changed was me.
So now I sleep most days and think of where it all might lead.
(repeat CHORUS)
BRIDGE:
Chords:
C#m x46654 B 799877
[G#m]A [466444]577655 [C/G]D [335553]x57775
[C#m]Blood [G#m]will [A]rain a little,
[A]Down [C#m]each [A]mountainside -
[C/G]Every [D]cloud will bring you [A]here.
(Instrumental / Guitar SOLO over VERSE chords)
CHORUS:
Notes:
If you're busking this, you might want to play B7 (7978 10 7) on the last line
of the CHORUS, the last time around (e.g. on the "all" of "we all want
something..."). Just a little yearning touch to finish...
Oh blood is [E]blood, and blood will [A]flow
That's all it [F#m]does, that's all it [B]knows
But I've one [E]question, I want [A]something, I want [B]more.
So flesh is [E]flesh, an urgent [A]fire
(So flesh is flesh, and it twists the soul)
It drags you [F#m]down, this cheap de[B]sire
(Like a tourniquet, like a begging bowl)
We all want [E]something, maybe [A]beauty, maybe [B]more
(Like some long forbidden treasure in the dirt...)
Oh blood is blood, and blood will flow -
(Blood is Blood, and it's on our hands)
That's all it does, that's all it knows
(That's the price of grace for the common man)
But I've one question, I want something, I want more
(For that one good hour you pay with all your life)
I want [C#m]more
(play: Guitar Figure 1)
I want [C#m]more
