CAPO 4
Tabbed By: Emrldeyzs



INTRO:  G  Em  C  D

    G
You breathed infinity into my world 
    Em                             
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl. 
C                                        D                  G   
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there, for the night. 
             Em          C                
Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind, 
           D                 C            D                
We'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him" 


CHORUS:

    G            Em                         
But ohhh now, My world is at your feet. 
      C 
I was lost and I was found, 
          D                   
But I was alive and now I've drowned. 
Em            C                 G          
Now I will,  be waiting for the world to hear my song 
            D                   C                     
So they can tell me I was wrong 
    G/F#          Em                                 
But they weren't there beneath your stare, 
                 C
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of 
    G                                    D         
Any bindings from the world outside that room. 
                 Em  
And they weren't taken by the hand 
                C  
And led through fields of naked land 
          G                              D    
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... 
              Em D C
So I couldn't say "no". 

BREAK: G  Em  C  D

    G                                   
You sighed and I was lost in you, 
Em       
Weeks could've past for all I knew. 
C
You were there blanket of the over-world 
         D                             G
and so I couldn't say, I wouldn't say "no". 
                 Em            C   
And they all said, "you're too young to even know, 
                  D                  C            D                   
Just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him" 

CHORUS:

    G            Em                         
But ohhh now, My world is at your feet. 
      C 
I was lost and I was found, 
          D                   
But I was alive and now I've drowned. 
Em            C                 G          
Now I will,  be waiting for the world to hear my song 
            D                   C                     
So they can tell me I was wrong 
    G/F#          Em                                 
But they weren't there beneath your stare, 
 
                 C
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of 
    G                                    D         
Any bindings from the world outside that room. 
                 Em  
And they weren't taken by the hand 
                C  
And led through fields of naked land 
          G                              D    
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... 

OUTRO:
                 Em                                 
But they weren't there beneath your stare, 
                 C
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of 
    G                                    D         
Any bindings from the world outside that room. 
                 Em  
And they weren't taken by the hand 
                C  
And led through fields of naked land 
          G                              D    
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... 
              Em D C
So I couldn't say    "no".
