VERSE I
C
You breathed infinity into my world
am
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl
F                                        G                    C
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night
           am             F
Then you said, wait for me we'll fly the wind 
          G
We'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him 
C           am                              F
but oh now, my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found, 
          G                       C
But I was alive and now I've drowned 
       
PRE-CHORUS
         am                      F
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song 
             am     F      G
So they can tell me I was wrong

CHORUS
                 am             
But they weren't there beneath your stare 
                    F
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
         C                                  G 
Any bindings from the world outside that room 
                   am
And they weren't taken by the hand 
                 F
And led through fields of naked land 
          C                                 G
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away
              am  G  F
So I couldn't say  no 

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