Intro and Instrumental are the same as chorus.

Lookin back well I see you 
with eyes that shouldn't be so blue
D                             A
Clearer than the calm before the rain

Bm                       G
So alive it wasn't fair to live without a single care
D                                A
I loved you and you felt for me the same
Em7                            G
So beautiful that words could not define
Em7                             A
Sweeter than the lord's communion wine


G                          D
Evangeline can't you see I'm sorry
                  G                     A
Can't you hear my tears ringin through the night 
         D D/C#         Bm   G
I wait in hell between these bedsheets
          D  A          D
And pray to god for morning light

And winter came and blood ran cold 
as ever present sleet and snow
Outside of a December window pane

This house would never be our home
Hand in hand we walk alone 
I thought the sun would never shine again
And the oldest violin could never whine
A melody as sorrowful as mine


Now I've seen your face a thousand times 
and nightmares runnin through my mind
It hurts just to pretend

But the devil fell and so have i
From perfect grace you faced the sky
Never thought a love like this would end
Now your words they  cut right through me like a knife
I gave my love and now I take my life

Never heard of T. T. Should have seen them in Craponne, France july 2012 but I got a DUI and could'nt make it. I had bought their CD's and loved it all. Now I can masacre some of their songs in the confort of my own home. Hope they come again to Europe! ...Jeff
