Intro  B, G#m, E, F#
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/m/missy-higgins/94295.html ]
B
You breathed infinity into my world
G#m
and time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl.
E                                                      F#              
                B
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night.
               G#m              E
Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind,
                 F#                       E               F#  
              B
we'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him" but oh,
             G#m                                  E
now my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,
                  F#
but I was alive and now I've drowned.
G#m    E                                   B
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
                   F#     		 E, F#
so they can tell me I was wrong...
                           G#m
But they weren't there beneath your stare,
                             E
and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
           B                                              F#
any bindings from the world outside that room.
 		G#m
And they weren't taken by the hand
		E
and led through fields of naked land
	     B				F#
where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
      G#m   F#   E
so I couldn't say "no".

B, G#m, E, F#

       B				G#m
You sighed and I was lost in you, weeks could've past for all I knew.
E					F#
You were the blanket of the over-world and so I couldn't say,
		B	          G#m	         E
I wouldn't say "no". But they all said, "you're too young to even know,
		F#		E	F#
just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him"
     B		G#m			  E
but oh, now, my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,

	   F#
but I was alive and now I've drowned.
G#m	E	                    B
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
	     F#			E, F#
so they can tell me I was wrong...

                           G#m
But they weren't there beneath your stare,
                             E
and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
           B                                              F#
any bindings from the world outside that room.
 		G#m
And they weren't taken by the hand
		E
and led through fields of naked land
	     B				F#
where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
                           G#m
But they weren't there beneath your stare,
                             E
and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
           B                                              F#
any bindings from the world outside that room.
 		G#m
And they weren't taken by the hand
		E
and led through fields of naked land
	     B				F#
where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
      G#m   F#   E
so I couldn't say "no".
