Cross in the Field

[Em] There’s a cross in the [D] field
[C] A sign on the door for [Em] me
[Em] Bones at the bottom of the [D] well
[C] You told me that you’d never [Em] tell

There’s a broken man covered in tears
An empty book full of all of his fears
Bones at the bottom of the well
You told me that you’d never tell

[Refrain 1]


[D] Write down all my prayers in blood
[C] I don’t ever sing of love
[G] Bind my soul to ancient bones
[D] And walk amongst you all [Em] alone

There’s a cross in the field
A sign on the door for me
Bones at the bottom of the well
You told me that you’d never tell

There’s a woman with a ring in her hand
Without a single memory of me
There’s a moment always caught in my mind
There was a time, there was a time

[Refrain 2]


[D] Stare into the ring of fire
[C] Lose my mind in all desire
[G] Write down all my prayers in blood
[D] I don’t ever sing of [Em] love

There’s a cross in the field
And the gods stand before you revealed
There’s a moment always caught in my mind
There was a time, there was a time

[Refrain 2]
