C                                              F
You hold the reins on the sun and the moon
           Am                         F
Like horses driven by kings

Are hidden inside your hand

And in this fortunate turn of events
        Am           G              F                         F

The constellations are swimming inside
          Am                       F
The breadth of your desire

Where could I run, where could I hide
Am                                         F
from your hearts jealous fire
