    C                     G/B

    Just before our love got lost you said

    Am7 (2)
    "I am as constant as a northern star"

                  Dm                                   C
    And I said, "Constant in the darkness
                       G/B
    (½)

    Where's that at?

               Am7 (½)                    G (2)
    If you want me I'll be in the bar"

                 C                         G/B
    On the back of a cartoon coaster

    Am7 (2)
         In the blue TV screen light

    Dm                           C
          I drew a map of Canada

          C (1 beat)     C/B (1 beat)   Am7 (2)
    Oh Ca       -        na  -          da

             Dm (½)    C (½)                   G/B
    With your        face sketched on it twice

    Chorus:

         F                                   Em
    Oh, you’re in my blood like holy wine

    Dm                      C 
    You taste so bitter and so sweet
        C                      C
    (1 beat)     C/B (1 beat)   Am7 (2)

    Oh I could drink a case           of                  you   and I would
    Dm
    (½)      C (½)     G/B

    Still I'd be on my feet

                    (Intro Progression)
    I'd still be on my feet

     

    C                         G/B
    Oh I am a lonely painter

    Am7 (2)
    I live in a box of paints

    Dm                             C
    I'm frightened by the devil

                 G/B (½)       Am7 (½)      G (2)
    And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

     

    C                                           G/B
    I remember that time that you told me, you said

                               Am7
    "Love is touching souls" Surely you touched mine

               Dm                   C
    ’Cause part of you pours out of me

    G/B (½)    Am7 (½)               G (2)
    In these lines from time to time

    Chorus

                  C                          G/B
    I met a woman, she had a mouth like yours

                           Am7 (2)
    She knew your life, she knew your devils and your deeds and she said
    Dm                C

        "Go to him, stay with him if you can

     G/B (½)              Am7 (½)   G (2)

            But be prepared to bleed"


    Chorus
