verse
   G
I should have seen you were coming, I should have been prepared.

                   Cadd9            D
After all, getting half of what you wish for isn't so rare.

   G
But still I wasn't ready, you took my by surprise,

              Cadd9                   D              G
you brought a light to my dark like a word from the wise


chorus
Bm		  C         Am		         D
Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,

   B7		       Em         D    C
so I will stand in the rain until I am clean


   (play this on the second time through on the second chorus)

Bm               C          Am                     D
Rivers carve the country, a landscape shaped by a stream,

   B7                   Em      D           C
so I will swim in the river as long as you need.


   G
We fell in love in the summer, when the skies were clear,

     Cadd9               D                       G
but I'm still wearing my coat from winter last year

   G
I need to set my house in order, confess and cover my sins.

          Cadd9            D                      G
I need to make a home for you before inviting you in


back to chorus x2

Em                C                    D                 
 G/Gb
   Darling oh my darling you know that everything that I do

      Em                C               G
is to try and make me good enough for you

   Em             C                    D               
 G/b
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,

          Em                 C               G
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.

("back home.....")

 G/Gb
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,

          Em                 C       D          G
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.
