E | F E* E | F E* E | F G E | Riff 1 | F E* E | F E* E | F G Am | Riff 2 |


E
Stars they sink in the oceans of ink
F E* E
Long black ribbons of cars
E F G Am
And in the taxi you ask me how I'm doing
C E
But you already know


E
Beyond, beyond is not through
F E* E
It's only a reflection of you
E F G Am
Something's at the window, it motions with it's fingers
C E
Calling me beyond


C Gm
The Sadness is mine
C Gm
The Sadness is mine
[nc] C Fm
It's why you're not helping me
C Fm
Whatever has come for me


Dm G
Oh I can give you whatever you're wanting
Dm G
Just take it and spare me, spare me please
Dm G
Oh tell me this is only a warning
Riff 3
C Cmaj7 Am
No please have mercy let me go
G F
If only a day to let her know
C F
Without her I am nothing at all
F
The change is happening and

I'm almost gone

In her heart is my faith and it wins
E
against the sadness

E
The train it moves through the desert
F E* E
The horses they will challenge its stride
E F G Am
And into the boxcar
she leaps and is my hero
C E
and penetrates the demons inside


E
The clouds they pass but they're moving so fast
F E* E
I watch them collide
E F G Am
Collide and collapse
in her arms like a newborn child
C Am
And I'm at once reborn


C Gm
The Sadness is mine
C Gm
The Sadness is mine
[nc] C Fm
It's why you're not helping me

Oh tell me this is only a warning

E
The fog in the moat as it grabs my throat
F E* E
It lifts as she comes
E F G Am
She o-pens her coat
And it's the color of the blood
C E Riff 5
and is the sign of what now must come


E
Deny, deny me my destiny
F E* E
I am not ready to go
E F G Am
I am no whore
that brings us to the morning
C E
Where I will have to stand and fight God


C Gm
The Sadness is mine
