E Am/E E7 Am/E E7 Am/E Cadd9
G#7 G7 G7

G G#dim Am
Do you remember all those pledges
G G#dim Am
That we pledged in the passionate night
C G
Ah, they're soiled now, they're torn at the edges
Cm G#7 G7
Like moths on a stale yellow light

Nor penance serves to renew them,
Nor massive transfusions of trust
Why not even revenge can undo them
Cm G
So twisted these vows and so crushed

A#
And you say you've been humbled in love
F
Cut down in your love
A#
Forced to kneel in the mud
F
Next to me
A#
Ah, but why so bitterly
F
Turn from the one
Am
Who kneels there
Fmaj7 E
As deeply as thee

Children have taken these pledges
They have ferried them out of the past
Oh beyond all the graves and the hedges
Where love must go hiding at last

And here where there is no description
Oh here in the moment at hand
No sinner need rise up forgiven
No victim need limp to the stand

And you say you've been humbled in love
Cut down in your love
Forced to kneel in the mud
Next to me
Ah, but why so bitterly
Turn from the one
Who kneels there
As deeply as thee

And look dear heart, look at the virgin
Look how she welcomes him into her gown
Yes and mark how the stranger's cold armor
Dissolves like a star falling down

Why trade this vision for desire
When you may have them both
You will never see a man this naked
I will never hold a woman this close

And you say you've been humbled in love
Cut down in your love
Forced to kneel in the mud
Next to me
Ah, but why so bitterly
Turn from the one
Who kneels there
As deeply as thee
