F      F/E F
And if the snow
   F/E Dm
Buries my
A   Bb      F
 My neighborhood
                  F/E F
And if my parents are crying
          F/E   Dm
Then I'll dig a tunnel
     A     Bb     F
From my window to yours
     Am   Dm
Yeah a tunnel
     A     Bb     F
From my window to yours

F         F/E     F
You climb out the chimney
            F/E    Dm
And meet me in the middle
    A      Bb     F
The middle of the town
                         F/E    F
And since there's no one else around
       F/E          Dm
We let our hair grow long
       A          Bb      F
And forget all we used to know
         Am        Dm
Then our skin gets thicker
     A          Bb     F
From living out in the snow

Chorus:
F
You change all the lead

Sleepin' in my head
Dm
  As the day grows dim
                         C    C7
I hear you sing a golden hymn

Riff

F                F/E      F
Then we tried to name our babies
          F/E         Dm
But we forgot all the names that
    A        Bb      F
The names we used to know
                    F/E        F
But sometimes, we remember our bedrooms
        F/E      Dm
And our parent's bedrooms
        A        Bb     F
And the bedrooms of our friends
        Am           Dm
Then we think of our parents,
     A         Bb               F
Well what ever happened to them

Chorus:
F
You change all the lead
                       Dm
Sleepin' in my head to gold

As the day grows dim
                         C
I hear you sing a golden hymn
                                  C7
The song I've been trying to sing

F
Purify the colors, purify my mind
Dm
  Purify the colors
          C
Purify my mind
                                     C7                F
And spread the ashes of the colors, over this heart of mine

F
ooooooooooh, ooooooooooh         |
Dm                       C C7    | x2

To melt the street beneath your feet
