                Capo on II

E      A          D          A         E         A     D   A
Oh the Sisters of Mercy they are not departed or gone
          C#m         G#m       C#m            G#m           E   Esus4 E
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on
         D                A           G          F#m             E Esus4 E
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song
     A            D         A               E            A     D
Oh I hope you run into them you who've been traveling so long

D   E

    A             D         A              E           A     D   A
Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control
     C#m            G#m         C#m            G#m          E   Esus4 E
It begins with your family, but soon it comes round to your soul
          D                 A         G           F#m            E     Esus4 E
Well I've been where you're hanging I think I can see how you're pinned
             A          D         A          E                A       D
When you're not feeling holy your loneliness says that you've sinned

D   E
          A          D          A    E           A     D   A
They lay down beside me I made my confession to them
     C#m             G#m        C#m         G#m          E   Esus4 E
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem
        D         A              G           F#m         E Esus4 E
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
          A             D             A           E          A     D
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem

D   E
       A               D          A            E        A     D   A
When I left they were sleeping I hope you run into them soon
     C#m         G#m            C#m          G#m          E   Esus4 E
Dont turn on the lights you can read their address by the moon
        D              A           G              F#m            E    Esus4 E
And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night

D   E
           A           D           A             E            A
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right
           A           D           A             E            A
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right
