Intro:
 
 ------

Bb, Eb
Verse:
 
 ------

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

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Cm] 
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Cm] 
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Cm] 
We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Ab/Bb] [Bb] [Fm/Bb] [Eb] 
...........
[Bb] [Eb]  
(verse)
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)
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Ab/Bb] [Bb] [Fm/Bb] [Cm] 
Bridge:
 
 -------

At my request you take me in
[Cm] [Cm/Ab] [Bb] [Bb/G] [Cm/Ab]  
In that tenderness I am floating away
[Cm] [Cm/Ab] [Bb] [Bb/G] [Cm/Ab] [Cm] 
No certainty, nothing to rely on
[Cm/Ab] [Bb] [Bb/G] [Cm/Ab]  
Holding still for a moment
[Cm] [Cm/Ab] [Bb] [Bb/G] [Cm/Ab]  
What a moment this is
[F]  
Oh for a moment of forgetting
[Cm/Ab]  
A moment of bliss
[F]  
Oh....
Eb Bb, Eb
(verse)
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)
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Cm] 
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
It was all for the union, oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man
[Ab] [Eb] [Bb] [Ab/Bb] [Bb] [Fm/Bb] [Cm]
