Would you watch my body weaken

                   Dm
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

sorry to be stupid but is it the tuning in Dm AND the capo? or just the Capo?

and the capo
by the way the picking has something different now, maybe she's changed the thing a little, and when the song goes like 'it's a sudden burst of light ..' then the fingering is 301000 not just 300000

The chords only work in standard tuning, but if you play the same strings on the chords in standard tuning with capo think it sounds ok too. Not sure, still working on it
