Verse sequence:
Am       Dm       Am                    E           Am.Riff
Nicky my child he stands there with the wind in his hair
Am        Dm           Am        E           Am.Riff
Wondering  whether the water the wind or the where
Am          Dm               Am        E          Am.Riff
I fear that someday he might ask me if mine is to blame
Am                 Dm          Am            E          Am.Riff
 And I've got no reply save to tell him it's all just a game

Chorus sequence:
G                               Am
 And how the sea she roars with laughter
G                           Am
 And howls with the dancing winds
G                   Am            D        G' D Dm Am.Riff
 To see my two feet standing here   questioning......

500 veres later... play Am.Riff and replace the open strings
at the end of the riff with Amsus2 and play triplets instead
of straight eighths.

   Amsus2 Amsus2/c Esus4     Amsus2   Amsus2/x  Esus4
My age      and my time, the bloodfire wine and rhyme
     A                 D              A
That fills my dream, reminds me of an atom
     E           A
In a bubble on a wave
               D                    A
That held it's breath for one sweet second
         E               A
Then was popped and disappeared
        D           A          E       A
Into fruitful futility, meaningless meaning
       E       A            E        Asus4  A
Meaningless meaning, meaningless meaning
D          A              D            A
 Under the toadstool lover down by the dream
D          A             E            A
 Everything flowing over rainbows downstream
              D
And there's a mirror that I'm lookin' straight through
      A      Asus4 A
And I get it
              D
And there's a doorway that I'm ducking into
      E
To forget it
    D        A       E        A
But flashin' doors beyond the sky
    D          E        A
The shattering midnight gathers
D         A         E       A
 And reminding me behind my hind
    D              E         A
The earthquake the sunflakes flutter

    D      A             E      A
The broken coach and the rags approach
        D          E          D  A
And the wind is devouring the ashes
