Dm
So tired
Bbm
Soul searching 
Am
I followed the sounds to a cathedral
Dm            Bbm                     Am
Imagine my surprise to find that they were produded by Brian Eno
 
VERSE
Dm
Past the gates
Bbm
Quite stark
Am                       Asus2
The roses trimmed and the windows dark
Dm                       Bbm
I see the walls through a limestone crack
Am                     Asus2
Not red, not blue, not yellow, but black
Gm                        Am (barre)
And all the space left for you

He taught me many things
Am               Asus2
The wisdom of o' bleak stratagems
Dm               Bbm
The prophet of a sapphire soul
Am               Asus2
Presented through creative freedoms
Gm                      Am (barre)
And everything I say is true
Gm
'Cause if i was telling lies it'd probably show
 
CHORUS
D                   Bm
I can tell that he's kind of smiling

But what does he know?
D               Bm
We're always one step behind him
G
He's Brian Eno (Brian Eno)
A
Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)
 
VERSE
When I was stuck he'd make me memorize elaborate curses
Tinctures and formulas
To ditch the choir and flip the verses
My whole foundation came unglued
When I tried to humanize by ambient light
 
CHORUS
Dipping swords in metaphors yeah
But what does he know?
He's go the whole world behind him
He's Brian Eno (Brian Eno)
Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)

He promised pretty worlds and all the silence I could dream of

Brian Peter George St. John
Le Baptiste de la Salle Eno
 
D                     Bm                      G
Well all alone by the oldest stone where the shade trees grow 
(What does he know?)

The creature by the water feature with a ghostly glow 
(Brian Eno!)

We reap what we sow

We're always one step behind him
