The Messenger


by Daniel Lanios
(Capo 1st Fret)

Got a letter from a messenger
I read it when it came
It said that you were wounded
You were bound and chained
You had loved and you were handled
You were poisoned you were pained
Oh no, oh no, you were naked you were shamed

Am - - - / Em - - - / F - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / F - - - /    /   x8   /
C - - - /    / F - - - /     / C - - - /     / G - - - /     /
Am - - - / Em - - - / F  - - - / G - - - / C - - - /    /    /    //

You could almost touch heaven 
Right there in front of you
Liberty just slipped away on us
Now there's so much work to do
Oh the door that closes tightly
Is the door that can't swing wide
Oh no, oh no, but expecting to collide

  R:	For a minute I let my guard down
Not afraid to be found out
Completely forgotten
What our fears where all about
Oh no, oh no, there's no need to be without

C - - - /    / F - - - /    /    /    / C - - - /     /
C - - - /     / F - - - /    / Dm - - - /     / C - - - /    /
Am - - - / Em - - - / F  - - - / G - - - / C - - - /    /    /    //

(Solo over first part of verse)
( Am - - - / Em - - - / F - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / F - - - /    /   x8   //)

There's a chance and I will take it 
This desire I can't give
Take my heart, please don't break it
I will crawl to your foothill
I'm frightened, but I'm coming
Please baby, please lay still
Oh no, oh no, not coming for the kill 

  T:	Oh no, oh no, not coming for the kill
Oh no, oh no, not coming for the kill

Am - - - / Em - - - / F - - - / G - - - / C - - - /    / F - - - /    / Dm - - - /     / C - - - /    //
