[Intro]
Am


[Verse 1]
     Bb                        Am
I believe that you heard your master sing 
     Bb             Am
when I was sick in bed. 
      Bb                     Am
I suppose that he told you everything 
       Bb                     Am
that I keep locked away in my head. 
     Bb              Dm
Your master took you travelling, 
        F                      G
well at least that's what you said. 
    C      Em        C      Em
And now do you come back to bring 
     F                  E       Am
your prisoner wine and bread? 


[Verse 2]
    Bb              Am
You met him at some temple, where
     Bb                       Am 
they take your clothes at the door.
        Bb                Am 
He was just a numberless man in a chair 
        Bb                    Am
who'd just come back from the war. 
        Bb                 Dm
And you wrap up his tired face in your hair 
       F                   G
and he hands you the apple core. 
        C           Em        C           Em
Then he touches your lips, now so suddenly bare 
           F                             E    Am
of all the kisses we put on some time before. 


[Verse 3]
        Bb                 Am
And he gave you a German shepherd to walk 
       Bb                    Am
with a collar of leather and nails, 
       Bb                     Am
and he never once made you explain or talk 
      Bb                   Am
About all of the little details, 
        Bb                 Dm
such as who had a word and who had a rock, 
        F                  G
and who had you through the mails. 
          C        Em           C       Em
Now your love is a secret all over the block, 
        F                                    E      Am
and it never stops not even when your master fails. 


[Verse 4]
       Bb                  Am
And he took you up in his aeroplane, 
          Bb               Am
which he flew without any hands, 
        Bb                  Am
and you cruised above the ribbons of rain 
      Bb                      Am
that drove the crowd from the stands. 
        Bb                     Dm
Then he killed the lights in a lonely lane 
        F               G
where an ape with angel glands, 
  C        Em       C       Em
erased the final wisps of pain 
         F               E     Am
with the music of rubber bands. 


[Verse 5]
    Bb                     Am
And now I hear your master sing, 
    Bb               Am
you kneel for him to come. 
    Bb               Am
His body is a golden string 
          Bb               Am
that your body is hanging from. 
    Bb         Dm
His body is a golden string, 
   F               G
my body has grown numb. 
   C       Em         C      Em
Oh now you hear your master sing, 
     F               E       Am
your shirt is all undone. 


[Verse 6]
    Bb                Am
And will you kneel beside this bed
        Bb                Am 
that we polished so long ago, 
   Bb                Am
before your master chose instead 
    Bb            Am
to make my bed of snow? 
     Bb                     Dm
Your eyes are wild and your knuckles are red 
           F               G
and you're speaking far too low. 
       C        Em             C      Em
No I can't make out what your master said 
   F              E    Am
before he made you go. 


[Verse 7]
       Bb                    Am
Then I think you're playing far too rough 
       Bb                    Am
for a lady who's been to the moon
     Bb                         Am
I've lain by this window long enough 
       Bb               Am
to get used to an empty room. 
          Bb                     Dm
And your love is some dust in an old man's cuff 
       F                    G
who is tapping his foot to a tune, 
          C           Em         C        Em
and your thighs are a ruin, you want too much, 
       F                               E      Am
let's say you came back some time too soon. 


[Verse 8]
  Bb                Am
I loved your master perfectly 
   Bb                    Am
I taught him all that he knew. 
       Bb                    Am
He was starving in some deep mystery 
       Bb                       Am
like a man who is sure what is true. 
      Bb                       Dm
And I sent you to him with my guarantee 
        F                    G
I could teach him something new, 
       C          Em             C      Em
and I taught him how you would long for me 
    F                                      E    Am
no matter what he said no matter what you'd do. 


[Verse 9]
Bb                            Am
I believe that you heard your master sing 
Bb                 Am
when I was sick in bed. 
Bb                         Am
I suppose that he told you everything 
Bb                            Am
that I keep locked away in my head. 
Bb                   Dm
Your master took you travelling, 
        F                      G
well at least that's what you said. 
     C       Em       C      Em
And now do you come back to bring 
     F                   E       Am
your prisoner wine and bread?
