Waptrick Peter Gabriel - Blood Of Eden Song Lyrics

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
