Jesus of the Moon  Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

I stepped out of the St. James hotel
And I left you behind curled up like a child
[Dm]A change is gonna come
And as the door whispered s[Gm]hut
I walked on down the high-windowed hall
[Gm]You lay sleeping on the unmade bed
The weatherman on the television in the St. James hotel s[Dm]aid
That the rains are gonna come
And I [Gm]stepped out on the streets
All sparkling clean with the early morning dew
[D#]Maybe it was you or [F]maybe it was me?
You [D]came on like a punch in the [Gm]heart
[D#]Lying there with the [F]light on your hair
Like a [D]Jesus of the moon
A Jesus of the planets and the [Gm]stars
[Gm]Well, I kept thinking about what the weatherman said
And if the voices of the living can be heard by the dead
Wel[Dm]l, the day is gonna come when we find out
[Gm]And in some kind of way I take a little comfort from that
Now and then
[Gm]'Cause people often talk about being scared of change
But for me I'm more afraid of things staying the [Dm]same
'Cause the game is never won
[Gm]By standing in any one place
For too long
[D#]Maybe it was you or ma[F]ybe it was me?
But t[D]here was a chord in you that I could not f[Gm]ind to strike
[D#]You lying there with all the li[F]ght in your hair
Like a [D]Jesus of the moon
A Jesus of the planets and the [Gm]stars
I see the many girls walking down the empty streets
Maybe once or twice one of them smiles at me
You can't blame anyone for saying hello
I say hey
I say hello… I say hello…
Will it be me or will it be you?
One must stay and one must depart
You lying there in the St. James hotel bed
Like a Jesus of the moon
A Jesus of the planets and the stars
I say hello... hello... hello...
