another version of this song, not perfect but with some mistakes fixed
hey, can anyone provide a good transcription of "When The Poets Dreamed Of Angels"?


  Standing firm on this stoney ground
The wind blows hard, pulls these clothes around
I harbour all the same worries as most
The temptations to leave or to give up the ghost
    D             Bm
I wrestle with an outlook of life
That shifts between darkness and shadowy light
I struggle with words for fear that they'll hear
     G                                            A
But Orpheus sleeps on his back still dead to the world.

Sunlight falls, my wings open wide
There's a beauty here I cannot deny
And bottles that tumble and crash on the stairs
Are just so many people I knew never cared
Down below on the wreck of the ship
Are a stronghold of pleasures I couldn't regret
But the baggage is swallowed up by the tide
As Orpheus keeps to his promise and stays by my side.

    F           G
	Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
    F              G
	Understand, these fires never stop
    F              G                                    F
	Believe me, when this joke is tired of laughing I will hear
              G           Bb       A
	The promise of my Orpheus sing.

E C A F, 2 times

Sleepers sleep as we row the boat
Just you the weather and I gave up hope
But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps
Were fuel for the fire and straw for our backs
Still the voices have stories to tell
Of the power struggles in heaven and hell
But we feel secure against such mighty dreams
As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may bring.


Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
Understand, these fires never stop
Believe me, when this joke is tired of laughing I will hear
The promise of my Orpheus sing.
