Versuri Peter Gabriel - Blood Of Eden

Album: Peter Gabriel - Secret World Live

I caught sight of my reflection 
I caught it in the window 
I saw the darkness in my heart 
I saw the signs of my undoing 
They had been there from the start 
And the darkness still has work to do 
The knotted chord's untying 
They're heated and they're holy 
Oh they're sitting there on high 
So secure with everything they're buying 

{Chorus: 
In the blood of Eden 
Lie the woman and the man 
With the man in the woman 
And the woman in the man 
In the blood of Eden 
Lie the woman and the man 
We wanted the union 
Oh the union of the woman 
The woman and the man 

My grip is surely slipping 
I think I've lost my hold 
Yes, I think I've lost my hold 
I cannot get insurance anymore 
They don't take credit, only gold 
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see 
You hold so tightly in your hand 
And all the while the distance grows between you and me 
I do not understand 

[Chorus] 

At my request, you take me in 
In that tenderness, I am floating away 
No certainty, nothing to rely on 
Holding still for a moment 
What a moment this is 
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss 
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 

I can hear the distant thunder 
Of a million unheard souls 
Of a million unheard souls 
Watch each one reach for creature comfort 
For the filling of their holes 

In the blood of Eden 
Lie the woman and the man 
With the man in the woman 
And the woman in the man 
In the blood of Eden 
We wanted the union 
Of the woman and the man 

In the blood of Eden 
Lie the woman and the man 
I feel the man in the woman 
And the woman in the man 

In the blood of Eden 
Lie the woman and the man 
I feel the man in the woman 
And the woman in the man 


In the blood of Eden 
We've done everything we can 
In the blood of Eden 
Saw the end as we began 
With the man in the woman 
And the woman in the man 
It was all for the union 
Oh, the union of the woman, the woman and the man. 

[extra lyrics from the "film mix"] 

The blood of eden keeps running through me 
running through my veins 
the blood of eden keeps rushing through me 
when I'm sure there's none that remains 
the blood of eden keeps running through me 
I can feel it in my bones 
that blood of eden keeps rushing through me 
taking back what it owns
