C         Cadd4      C
Under the silence of water,
C      Cadd4       C
Into a sky full of birds
C            Cadd4       C
Out from the land of our fathers,
     Am              F
I am falling on your words,
C
Oh...

C           Cadd4      C
Dark as the night of a preacher,
C        Cadd4      C
I made a bed out of hay
C              Cadd4      C
They paid me a handful of money,
  Am          F
I gave it all away...
C
All away...

        F                      Am
And the righteous raised their stones
        F               Am
And the devil threw his arrow
         F             Am
That was longing for a home
     Dm         F
With nowhere to go,
C
Oh, Theo...

C           Cadd4       C
In the half-life of the city,
C            Cadd4      C
She took off all of her clothes
C               Cadd4         C
I flew from the height of the mountains
       Am            F
Into a valley of dry bones
C
All alone

        F               Am
Then my heart was still unknown
      F                 Am
I was drunk and full of sorrows
      F             Am
I was longing for a home
     Dm         F
With nowhere to go,
C
Oh, Theo...

C         Cadd4    C
So, I set fires of starlight,
C          Cadd4       C
To burn up against the despair
C                   Cadd4      C
I was caught in the tangles of midnight's
Am               F
Long, unanswered prayer:
C
'Are you there?'

        F                Am
And the light of morning grows
     F               Am
On a field of fallen sparrows
      F             Am
I was longing for a home
     Dm         F
With nowhere to go,
C
Oh, Theo...
