I saw a girl who'd found her consolationD Bm F#m G A
She said "One day my Prince of Peace will come"D Bm F#m A
Above her head a portrait of her fatherC#m G#m E G#m
The wilted favour that he gave her still fastened to the frameA C#m A C#m G#m
"They've got his bones and everything he ownsA E A C#m
I've got his name" A D

Well you can laugh at this sentimental storyD Bm F#m G A
But in time you'll have to make amendsD Bm F#m A
The sudden chill where lovers doubt their immortalityD Bm F#m G A
As the clouds cover the sky the evening endsD Bm F#m A
Describing a picture of eyes finally closingC#m G#m E G#m
As you sometimes glimpse terrible faces in the fireA C#m A C#m G#m
We'll I'm the lucky goon who composed this tuneA E A C#m
from birds arranged on the high wireA D

Who on earth is tapping at the window?D Bm F#m G A
Does that face still linger at the pane?D Bm F#m A
I saw you shiver though the room was like a furnaceD Bm F#m G A
A shadow of regret across a young mother's faceD Bm F#m A
So toll the bell or rock the cradleC#m G#m E G#m
Please don't let me fear anything I cannot explainA C#m A C#m G#m
I can't believe, I'll never believe in anything againA E A C#m A D
