                    Db                  Ab
You ve made your decision now get up and leave
      Gb                   Ab                        Db
The familiar sting of the woodcutters swing to the tree
                 Db                   Ab
I’ll fall in the forest to elbows and knees.
       Gb                                Ab                     Db
And it won t make a sound since there s no one around here to see


         Gb        Db
I was prepared to love you
            Gb             Db      Ab
And never expect anything of you


                Db                         Ab
If a spirit has left you baby don t lie to yourself
       Gb                     Ab                   Db
Put them old records on and admit that it s gone somewhere else
                   Db                                                      Ab
Just because we re beasts of blame by nature doesn t mean that you should carry it again
       Gb                        Ab                   Db
It s a question of needs, and not rosary beads, in the end


         Gb        Db
I was prepared to love you
            Gb             Db
And never expect anything of you
                      Gb 
But there s no patron saint of silent restraint
Db               Ab            Gb
There ain t no sword in our lake
                Db
Just a funeral wake


             Bbm                   Db
You were the coldest star in the sky
                Gb            Db
Only I couldn t see it I was blind
            Bbm                       Db
In come the black night calling your name since you were born
                Gb             Ab             Db
Only I couldn t hear it I was empty as a drum


         Gb        Db
I was prepared to love you
            Gb             Db
And never expect anything of you
                    Gb 
But there no patron saint of silent restraint
Db               Ab            Gb
There ain t no sword in our lake
Db               Ab            Gb
There ain t no sword in our lake
Db               Ab            Gb
There ain t no sword in our lake
                Db
Just a funeral wake.
