Lyrics

Am D G C
E Am E Am

Am D G C

E Am E Am



Am D G C
I promised you I’d be coming home soon
E Am E Am
But eyes gave away what my mouth wouldn’t say
Am D G C
Love was a mist drifting over too soon
E Am E Am
Leaving wetness and dew that tasted like you
Am D G C
Dampen the face that I loved for so long
E Am E Am
Now tired, she hungers for some other body
Am D G C
To warm her at night in her sheets made of ash
E Am E Am
With the bodies of children that weren’t meant to last

Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Don’t you see? I’m some oil on the ocean
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Drifting by, making stains on the helpless
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Let me be, let me die in the ruins
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
I’ll be fine, you’ll forget I was selfish


Am D G C
Silhouettes follow my shadow at dawn
E Am E Am
your voice is a wind that ushers me on

Am D G C
on to a place where I can’t feel your eyes
E Am E Am
Watch me get older and drink myself blind

Am D G C
My hands have grown tired and they hurt when I play
E Am E Am
my body remembers mistakes I have made


Am D G C
dreaming of you is the price that I pay
E Am E Am
each night I’m reminded of thoughtless mistakes


Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Don’t you see? I’m the fire on the mountain
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Making ash of the trees that surrounded
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Peaceful streams and the life they provided
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
Gone and dead like the love that I squandered
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
For what’s been lost or taken too early
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
all that time that I wasted in mourning
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
All that youth that I spent believing
Dm Dm/C Dm(omit 5)/B C C7/B Am
I was more than the body I’m leaving
