"QUICKSAND" BY SLEEPING AT LAST (Standard tuning)


                  F                 Am
There are wires in between
               Dm                 G
Human heart and machine.
           F            Am
I will wait for mountains
      Dm                    G
To tell me youre okay
       F                                   Am
On paper my future will lay.
    Dm                         G
Ill fold every failure into a crane.

               C
Trust is quicksand,
                 Em                 C
Claiming everything I have,
           F                              C                    G
All to give me life, all to give me life.

Am               
Slow down, hide your eyes!
        G                      C
The sun is setting fire
Am
Through glass, branches deep.
  G                       C
I cough only to breathe.

C  x8 measures

               C
Trust is quicksand,
                 Em                 C
Claiming everything I have,
           F                              C                    G
All to give me life, all to give me life.
C
One thousand more to go,
                         Em                     C
Ill send every prayer from below.
          F                          C          G
I was swallowed by a whale.

Am
Slow down, youre all words
         G         C           
And love is made of yarn.
Am
Scissors,
Am
A slip of the hand, a slip of the tongue;
         G                        C              Am 
God knows I meant no harm,
C                  Am
I meant no harm.

Am, G, F, Em, F

G,                           F                                     Em  F
In between every promise and lie there is a kiss.
G,                                F                                Em F
In between tempers and suitcases there is a kiss.
G,                           F                                     Em F
In between medicine and the sick there is a kiss.
G,                               F                                       Em  F
In between arrows, aim, and release, there is a kiss.

(end on G)
