Am F F

     Am          F          F
As the bell tower blocks the summer light
Am       F            F
All the seeds in our garden fight
    Am   G    F              E
To break and blossom, all to be adored
And look, your skirt is torn
And there's blood on our sheets
            Am     F   F
As comes the long arm of the law
Am    F       F
Fist tight, banging on the door
     Am  G    F              E      F   G
And knocking me down on its way in

As I pass out into a dream
Of whooping cranes and wooden beams
Great white wings beating
In an attic, in a house, in the dead of night

F  G   Am  G  F   Am G   F
Oh, my Augustine, Augustine
F G          Am G F  Am G F
Oh, is this forever, ever?
F   G
Oh, oh
      Am G  F    Am G  F
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
      F         G
What does this mean for us?

Does it mean that I can never change my ways?
And that's why, love, you shouldn't stay
Still you will and love me
Like a mother or a maid bringing you down, down
Down on your brazen knees
Watering the worms and the weeds
Thinking, why does love leave me so damn cold?
Now I'm getting old
And is this what it should be?
Well, is it?

Oh, my Augustine, Augustine.
Oh, is this forever, ever?
Oh, oh
Sweet Augustine, Augustine
   F            G         F      F
Or do we kill this one tonight?
F  F

                 Am F    F
And now come the tears, heavy and hot
Am           F              F
As it comes clear, this is all we got
      Am   G   F
As I hold you to my bed
         E           F
Like a cancer, or a curse
Now be my loving nurse
                 Am   G     F         Am
As we fall back into the impossible dream
