Comments: This is one of the most soothing, relaxing,
          intoxicating songs I have ever heard.  Jane
          Siberry's backing vocals have a lot to do with that.
          Most remarkably, it is EASY to play, unlike
          many of Larkin's songs.  Just strum the 3 chords
          forward and back repeatedly.  Emphasize the base
          strings while strumming.


Guitar tuning: eADGAD

Chords:  (repeat these ad infinitum)

   eADGAD

1         2          3       2
we are surrounded by so much water
1         2          3       2  etc.
that we might as well get a boat
or we could swim like neptune's daughters
to the other side of the moat

(refrain)
coming up for air
rising to a very new somewhere
coming up for air
on the last breath around

we are sleeping in a canyon
where the walls rise up to the sky
we could reach the rim by standing
and begin to breathe with a sign

(refrain)

we are swaying like a willow
that is weeping over the view
we could wave goodbye
and fly into the hills
and into the blue

(refrain)

on the last breath around
on the last breath around
