Intro - E

E                          A                            E
Send me down my future, From your wheel of fire
E                  A                       E
Let me only fly, On your wings of desire
E                               A                             E
What happened to that ride, On your chariot of gold
E                           A                                 E
It had only lasted minutes, From the centuries you hold

B                                A
What happened to the reign
               E
The reign of love?
B                                     A
Where have all the angels gone
                           E
Now the sun's not up above?
B                                A
You lie so beautifully still
                    E
I can't see you move

I want us to be closer
In fifty years or more
Getting young not older
Like we were here before
But your quarters are all sullied
Your alter boys asleep
Your priests have drunk the wine
You meant us all to keep

What happened to the reign
The reign of love?
Where have all the angels gone
Now the sun's not up above?
You lie so beautifully still
I can't see you move

What happened to the reign
The reign of love?
Where have all the angels gone
Now the sun's not up above?
You lie so beautifully still
I can't see you move
I'm not saying your dead
I just think you've changed
You lie so beautifully still
I can't see you move
