Mirah - The Forest chords

I'm a beginning guitarist but this song was pretty easy to hear. May be a bit different. 
I capo it on second for my voice, but it doesnt need a capo.

Follows the same pattern the entire song. It just changes tempo.
         Am                    C
When we went off away from the forest,
               G                    Am
we did travel far to get a taste of so much more.

And it's the same for the rest of the song.
The instrumental breaks are a bit different.

We dug up the roots of all the stories, put 'em in a pot
and brought them to a fiery road.
We fed on these things without a worry,
never gave a thought to the coming of the winter storm.
Gone away, gone away, what was yesterday.
Make a meal, make a bed, tuck your feet in.
Rested elbows twice on a table can be nice,
but the comforts they can be deceiving

(Short instrumental break)
Alternate between Am and C

The seasons are not what they once seemed.
The berries all are green, though summer's at a fine high crest.
We lifted our shirts up in a hurry,
reaching for the belly hollow from the long cold rest.
We slept up all the fat but there'd be no more of that,
cause there must be some disease 'neath the canopies.
Swinging tails from trees we could gather what we need.
Give away what we had our first share of,
but now the forks and knives with the sacrifice.
We could bare only some can believe in.

(Instrumental break)
Am C G Am, though sometimes it seems to go back to the Am C Am C

When we in turn, we find all the leaves had died.
Had we all gone away for such a long time.
we are alike, so sweet and enough to eat,
but now it's all just bones and a long way away from home.

Outtro is Am C G Am
