Heaven sent you fine, but
F#                     Bm 
You don`t know what to do
D                  G    F# 
And ever since you want me
Bm                     G
You don`t know what to do
D                G        F#
You elevate your mind, but
F#              Bm
Can`t stand the view

I elevate my mind, but
Bm            G
I can`t stand you

I do a mantra and I know PL 1
D             F#

But your person
        G
Will be bursting
              F#
Like your the peculiar toll
D             G
Bursting ever bursting
              F#
Yeah your the living on soul  (repeat)

A                      D
 They're gonna atomize you


How good is this song?!!!
Definately one of THE BEST Frank songs.
I've always wondered why it was just a b-side. It would have graced many a Catholic record.

Woah, thanks a lot! I didn't see it tucked away in the tab section.

It is indeed a mighty song. The only version I have is from the Peel Sessions.

Yeah there's a 'Pistolero Demo' version, at least that's what it's labelled.

But a different version appears on the 'All My Ghosts' EP.

Oh yeah, and on One More Road... too. Is that the same version as the All My Ghosts EP? I hate how the one I have cuts out at the end.
