[Verse]
Hey there now did I hear your voice,
        ringing out in the early morning?
Did I hear you singing right through the night,
        out there while I was rolling?
Did you see my brother lying in the ditch,
        knuckles all scraped and the powder on him
passing like a shadow right through the night,
        through my days and through my mind? 

(instrumental interlude)

Love is dead and truth is empty
        it won't heal and it won't save me.
See that girl in the checked white skirt
        I'll hold her tonight and maybe it'll work

[Chorus]
Love is all,
        a white dove in the snow,
passing through,
        like a bright new moon.
Mama froze.
        Women's blood once flowed.

[Verse]
(instrumental interlude)

Death runs deep in this family.
        Write your song for the left and only.
Lost my arm in the first great war.
        Wish I'd never learned that piano before.

See my brother drinking from the glass.
        They say he died with his eyes wide open.
Poison flowing right through the veins.
        Glass of milk fell from his hands.

[Chorus]
Love is all.
        Find the right way home.
Time is all.
        Find the right way home.
Powder moon.
        Find the right way home.
Time is all.
        Find the right way home.
 
[Verse]
(instrumental interlude)

Hey there now did you hear my voice,
        ringing out in the early morning?
Did you hear me singing right through the night?
        I wonder if you'll ever get tired of this.

Death runs deep in this family.
        Write your song for the left and only.
Lost my arm in the first great war.
        Wish I'd never learned that piano before. (repeat)

[Chorus]
Love is all.
        Find the right way home.
Time is all
        Find the right way home.
Powder moon
        Find the right way home.
Time is all.
        Find the right way home.

* This is my first tab!
* The lyrics match what I heard the best I could make them out. Some don't really make sense.
* Hit fret 1 on the low E string using the thumb wrapped around.
* Search for "Paul Wittgenstein" for the background to this song.
* Many thanks to domi89 for pointing out the errors in the first version of this that I posted!
