                             I walked Home Beholding - Mount Eerie
Tabbed by: Nicholas Klose

Tuning: EADGBe

The world was frozen 
I left the studio 
Night had fallen
The Storm had cleared
BC                 F
The whole town had been abandoned except for me. 
F   C            B♭
I walked home beholding. 

The lights in the park 
The moving trees 
The silent corners 
The world's new cloak 
A final breath of storm blows snowdrifts in the street 
then blows away over the water. 

On an island 
across from town 
Close and alone 
Looking across the water seeing people slowly living all their lives. 
This is the feeling from inside an island body 
(Looking out from inside a sea of thoughts, distant and quiet.) 

Tossed on the waves 
blown onto land 
Grasping meaning 
in churning mess 
A moment of clear air breathing, seeing the expanse. 
Totally at peace with the meaninglessness of living. 

Drifting in a changing world 
Reaching for a solid thing 
in vain 
The stone dissolves in the same wind I swim through. 
Where I live there is a constant roaring. 

Bottomless absence 
through a cloud hole 
The sky was moving 
I saw it drift 
Seeing breathing waves of water roll in the sky. 
The wind has increased.
