On a cobweb, afternoon in a room 

full of emptiness 
       
By a freeway I confess 

I was lost in the pages 

Of a book, full of death 

Reading how we'll die alone 
     
And if we're good we'll lay to rest 

Anywhere we want to go 

 

G5      Bb5      F5       G5 
In your house I long to be 
G5      Bb5   F5       G5 
Room by room patiently 
     Eb5           G5 
I'll wait for you there 
F5        G5 
Like a stone 
     Eb5           G5 
I'll wait for you there 
D5       D5 
Alone

On my deathbed, I will pray  
  
To the gods and the angels 
       
Like a pagan to anyone 
             
Who will take me to heaven 
     
To a place, I recall 

I was there so long ago 
   
The sky was bruised 
   
The wine was bled 
    
And there you led me on

Eb       Bb 
And on I read 
D7                 Eb  
Until the day was gone 
      Ebm          C7 
And I sat in regret 
   D7                   Gm 
Of all the things I've done 
    Eb              Bb 
For all that I've blessed 
    D7              Eb 
And all that I've wronged 
    Ebm             C7 
In dreams until my death 
        D5     D5 
I will wander on 

 

G5      Bb5      F5       G5 
In your house I long to be 
G5      Bb5   F5       G5 
Room by room patiently 
     Eb5           G5 
I'll wait for you there 
F5        G5 
Like a stone 
     Eb5           G5 
I'll wait for you there 
D5       Eb5 
Alone
