Intro:  C C   F F  x 4

Verse:

F F C C
Oh fair and flighty love
Am Am C C
My aerolite above
Em Em
The only dove I see

F F C C
Could you love me more
Am Am C C
If by the sun and moon I swore
Em Em
That I would never flee?


F F
Well I still taste you
C C
on my lips
F F Em Em
Lovely bitter water
F F C C
The terrible fire of old regret
G G Am Am
Is honey on my tongue
G G
And I know I shouldn't love you


F F
I know I shouldn't love you, but
I do



C C F F x2 (just like intro)


verse 2:

F F C C
I feel it in my soul
Am Am C C
I feel the empty hole
Em Em
The cup that can't be filled

F F C C
And I feel it in my blood
Am Am C C
In the fire and the flood
Em Em
The beast that can't be killed


F F C C
Even now you mark my steps
F F Em Em
Lovely bitter water
F F C C
All the days of our delights are
G G Am Am
Poison in my veins
G G
I know I shouldn't love you
F F
I know...



Instrumental Bridge:

C F x10
Ohhhhh

C C
I am not a fool entire
F F C C
No, I know what is coming
F F C C
You'll bury me beneath the trees
G G Am Am
I climbed when I was a child
G G
I know I shouldn't love you
F F
I know I shouldn't love you, but
C C
I do
