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
