And my mind drift away?

Dm    Bb    A

Dm                 Bb                  A
Dear lover forsaken, our love is taken away
Dm                 Bb
You were my speaker, my innocence-keeper
  F                 Gm               F
I don't night after night, day after day
                        Gm
Would you watch my body weaken,
               Dm
My mind drift away?

Dm    Bb    A

Dear lover forgiven, my love is driven by rage
Oh I should just leave you, instead I've deceived you
But I don't, night after night, day after day
Would you watch my body weaken
my mind drift away?

Dm                      Bb
I count to no one, hold nobody's ear
  A
I sold you my hand once and you hit me in fear
        Dm
I don't stand for the devil
        Bb
I don't whisper in ears
  F                          Gm             F    Gm     Dm
I stand on the mountains and call people to hear

Dm/F                   Dm                     Dm/F
It's a sudden burst of light, it's a fate foretold
      Dm             Dm/F     Dm
It is knowing, it is knowing

Dm    Bb    A

   Dm                        Bb
He longs for the answers, as all of us must
   A
He longs for the woman who will conquer his lust
   Dm                      Bb
He screams in the night, I scream in the day
   A
We weep in the evening and lie naked and pray

F           Gm               F
Night after night, day after day
            Gm               F
Night after night, day after day
                        Gm
Could you watch my body weaken,
                   Dm
and my mind drift away?


Dm/F                     Dm
It's a tempting communion
                Dm/F
It's a fate foretold
      Dm             Dm/F
It is knowing, it is knowing

This is a great tab, thank you! Consider switching between Am and F during the sections where you currently have Am/C. (This is transposed + 7)
