Winter stole summer's thrill And the river's cracked and cold See the sky is no man's land A darkened plume to stay Hope here needs a humble hand Not a fox found in your place

And no man is an island, oh this I know But can't you see, oh? Maybe you were the ocean, when I was just a stone Verse 2: (same as verse 1) Black flies on the windowsill That we are That we are That we are to hold Comfort came against my will And every story must grow old Still I'll be a traveler A gypsy's reins to face But the road is wearier With that fool found in your place Chorus x2 Ending: I improved the ending as the chords that ben play in the tuning he does This in don’t translate well to standard. I played these chords: 022000 300000 790000 700000 x4 ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | br Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend ************************************
