[Intro]
 Eadd9                       Cmaj7         Cmaj7/E
| /_/_/ /_/_/ | /_/_/ /_/_/ | /_/_/ /_/_/ | /_/_/ /_/_/ |

[Verse 1]
E
    Standing firm on this ...stony ground,
    Cmaj7
The wind blows hard, pulls these clothes around,
   A
I...  harbour all the same worries as most,
            Fmaj7
The temp - tations to leave, or to give up the ghost,
D                        Bm/F#
   I wrestle with ...an outlook on life...
   Bm/A   G                           G6 *
...That shifts between darkness and shadowy light,
    Fmaj7
I struggle with words, for fear that they'll hear,
     Gm7                                         Amaj7
But Orpheus sleeps on his back, still dead to the world!


[Verse 2]
E
    Sunlight falls, my wings open wide,
          Cmaj7
There's a beauty here, I cannot deny,
       A
And bottles that tumble, and crash on the stairs,
        Fmaj7
Are just so many people I knew never cared,
D                      Bm/F#
    Down below, on the wreck of the ship,
   Bm/A   G                       G6 *
Are a stronghold of pleasures I couldn't regret,
         Fmaj7
But the baggage is swallowed up by the tide
     Gm7                                         Amaj7
As Orpheus keeps to his promise, and stays by my side!


[Chorus]
Fmaj7 Fmaj9 Fmaj7      G6  Gadd9        G6
             Tell me,      I've still a lot to learn,
Fmaj7     Fmaj9     Fmaj7  G6  Gadd9        G6
      I understand,            these fires never stop,
Fmaj7      Fmaj9 Fmaj7   G6    Gadd9          G6
      Be - lieve--    me,  when this joke is tired of laughing,
Fmaj7    Fmaj9      Fmaj7       G6            Bb    Asus4
  I will-----  hear...    the promise of my Orpheus sing!

[Verse 3]
E
   Sleepers sleep, while we... row the boat,
    Cmaj7
Just you, the weather, and I gave up hope,
     A
But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps...
       Fmaj7
...Was fuel for the fire, and straw for our backs,
D                         Bm/F#
   Still the voices have stories to tell...
   Bm/A  G                  G6 *
Of the power struggles in heaven and hell,
   Fmaj7
But we feel secure against such mighty dreams,
    Gm7                                         Amaj7
As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may... bring!

Fmaj7     Fmaj9     Fmaj7  G6  Gadd9        G6

Yet another UG formatting error on my tab, it's getting frustrating. Hope they can sort it out. Where it is displayed as a B chord should be shown as Bm/F#. This error seems to be constantly cropping up from UG.

It's taken 6 months but UG fixed the problem with slash chords so my tab looks the way it should now.
