In a faith forgotten land
Bm           A
In from the snow
G                           Em7          Bm

Magnificently cursed

He's in the room

Your opal eyes are all I wish to see

He wants what's only yours

Spring breaks loose, the time is near

    G                 D    A
On begged and borrowed time
Bm            A
So tell me to run
G                   Em7               Bm
Or dare to sit and watch what we'll become

And drink my husband's wine
