Time As A Symptom

	  		
verse 1 

F            Eb      Gm 
Time passed hard 
         F              Eb          Gm 
And the task was the hardest thing she'd ever do 
F    Eb   Gm 
But she forgot 
F           Eb  Gm 
The moment she saw you 

F                Eb     Gm 
So it would seem to be true: 
       F             Eb         Gm 
When cruel birth debases, we forget 
 F          Eb      Gm 
When cruel death debases 
                 Dm   F        Eb 
We believe it erases all the rest 
Gm 
That precedes 

verse 2 

Gm          F           Eb 
But stand brave, life-liver 
 Gm            F 
Bleeding out your days 
        Eb       Gm 
In the river of time 
  F     Eb 
Stand brave: 
Gm 
Time moves both ways

Bridge F Eb Gm The moment of your greatest joy sustains: F Eb Not axe nor hammer Gm Tumor, tremor F Eb Can take it away, and it remains Gm It remains Gm F Eb Gm F Eb And it pains me to say, I was wrong Gm F Eb Love is not a symptom of time F Gm Time is just a symptom of love

Coda Eb Gm Hardly seen, hardly felt F Deep down where your fight is waiting Eb Down 'till the light in your eyes is fading: Dm F Eb Joy of life Bb Where i know that you can yield, when it comes down to it; Eb Bb Bow like the field when the wind combs through it: Dm F Eb Joy of life Eb F And every little gust that chances through Eb Will dance in the dust of me and you Dm F Eb With joy-of-life Eb Gm And in our perfect secret-keeping: F One ear of corn Eb In silent, reaping Dm F Eb Joy of life F Eb Gm Joy! Again, around a pause, a sound, a song: F Eb Gm A way a lone a last a loved a long F Eb Gm A cave, a grave, a day: arise, ascend (Areion, Rharian, go free and graze. Amen.) F Eb A shore, a tide, unmoored a sight, abroad: Gm F Eb A dawn, unmarked, undone, undarked (a god) Eb F Gm Eb F No time. No flock. No chime, no clock. No end Gm Eb F Gm Eb White star, white ship, Nightjar, transmit: transcend! F Eb Gm F Eb White star, white ship, Nightjar, transmit: transcend! F Eb Gm F Eb White star, white ship, Nightjar, transmit: transcend! F Eb Gm F White star, white ship, Nightjar, transmit: trans-
