INTRO: B  Abm E  F#

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


CHORUS:

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

BREAK: B  Abm E  F#

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

CHORUS:

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

OUTRO:
                 Abm
But they weren't there beneath your stare, 
                 E
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of 
    B                                    F#
Any bindings from the world outside that room. 
                 Abm
And they weren't taken by the hand 
                E
And led through fields of naked land

Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... 
              Abm F#  E 
So I couldn't say      "no".
