    Capo 3
    Verse 1:
    DE7
    Ah the man she wanted all her life was hanging by a thread 
    EmA7GD
    "I never even knew how much I wanted you," she said. 
    DE7
    His muscles they were numbered and his style was obsolete. 
    EmA7GD
    "Oh baby, I have come too late." She knelt beside his feet. 
    Verse 2:
    DE7
    "I'll never see a face like yours in years of men to come 
    EmA7GD
    I'll never see such arms again in wrestling or in love." 
    DE7
    And all his virtues burning in the smoky Holocaust 
    EmA7GD
    She took unto herself most everything her lover lost 
    Bridge 1:
    Bm
    ........Now the master of this landscape he was standing at the view 
    Em
    with a sparrow of St. Francis that he was preaching to 
    F#m
    She beckoned to the sentry of his high religious mood 
    EmEm/D#Em/DA7
    She said, "I'll make a place between my legs, I'll show you solitude." 
    Interlude: D
    Verse 3:
    DE7
    He offered her an orgy in a many mirrored room 
    EmA7GD
    He promised her protection for the issue of her womb 
    DE7
    She moved her body hard against a sharpened metal spoon 
    EmA7GD
    She stopped the bloody rituals of passage to the moon 
    Piano solo backing:
    D E7 Em A7 G D (x2)
    D (for 2 bars)
    Verse 4:
    DE7
    She took his much admired oriental frame of mind 
    EmA7GD
    and the heart-of-darkness alibi his money hides behind 
    DE7
    She took his blonde madonna and his monastery wine 
    EmA7GD
    "This mental space is occupied and everything is mine." 
    Interlude: D (for 2 bars)
    Verse 5:
    DE7
    He tried to make a final stand beside the railway track 
    EmA7GD
    She said, "The art of longing's over and it's never coming back." 
    DE7
    She took his tavern parliament, his cap, his cocky dance, 
    EmA7GD
    She mocked his female fashions and his working-class moustache. 
    Bridge 2:
    Bm
    ........Now the last time that I saw him he was trying hard to get 
    Em
    A woman's education but he's not a woman yet 
    F#m
    And the last time that I saw her she was living with some boy 
    EmEm/D#Em/DA7
    Who gives her soul an empty room and gives her body joy. 
    Last verse:
    DE7
    So the great affair is over but whoever would have guessed 
    EmA7GD
    It would leave us all so vacant and so deeply unimpressed? 
    DE7
    It's like our visit to the moon or to that other star 
    EmA7GD
    I guess you go for nothing if you really want to go that far. 
    Interlude:
    D (for 3 bars)
    DE7EmA7GD
     
    DE7
    It's like our visit to the moon or to that other star 
    EmA7GD
    I guess you go for nothing if you really want to go that far. 
    Interlude:
    D (Strum it fast this time, there is no set time signature. Last time the next
    part is repeated, there is only keyboard and no guitar)
    DE7
    It's like our visit to the moon or to that other star 
    EmA7GD
    I guess you go for nothing if you really want to go that far.
