   Bm                  F#               G
They're taking pictures of the man from God
  D                        A
I hope his cassock's clean
   Bm                    F#      G
The burden of being a holy fellow
  D             A                   D
Your halo better gleam, better gleam

 D5        A             Bm
What of all those wayward priests?
 D           A
The ones who like to drink
 D5                    A                Bm
Do you suppose they'd swap their blood for wine
 D                       A          D
Like you swapped yours for ink, for ink

    Bm             F#    G
You wrote me oh so many letters
    D                   A
And all of them seemed true
 Bm            F#      G
Promises look good on paper
   D             A         D
Especially from you, from you

     D5                  A       Bm
The weight of all those willing words
   D           A
I carried all alone
    D5                A      Bm
You wouldn't put your pen to bed
         D               A        D
When we hadn't found our own, our own 

G Em D A
G Em D A

      Bm             F#      G
Your sentences rose high at night
     D                A
And circled round my head
     Bm                 F#  G
The circle's since been broken
          D                    A        D
Like the priest before me is breaking bread

          D5                   A       Bm
I'm being asked to drink the blood of Christ
     D                  A
And soon I'll eat his flesh
     D5            A        Bm
I'm alone again before the altar
  D              A      D
Shedding all my old regrets

     Bm                 F#       G
The last of which I'll tell you now
   D                  A
As it flies down the sink
   Bm           F#      G
I never knew a part of you
     D             A       D
You didn't set in ink, in ink

     D5               A      Bm
The letters that you left behind
     D             A
No longer shall I read
       D5                A  Bm
Your blood's between the pages
    D                 A        D
And I can't stand to see you bleed

Bm F# G F# G A
Bm F# G F# G A D

D5 D G D5 A
D5 D G D5 A D
D5 D G D5 A
D5 D G D5 A D 

          Bm                   F#     G
And I'll soon forget what was never there
      D                 A
Your words are ash and dust
Bm                      F#        G
All that's left is the song I've sung
      D                        A     D
The breath I've taken and the one I must

           D5                        A            Bm
If you're born with a love for the wrote and the writ
  D                     A
People of letters your warning stands clear
     D5                     A          Bm
Pay heed to your heart and not to your wit
       D                        A          D
Don't say in a letter what you can't in my ear

Bm F# G D A
