VERSE 1

There's an island hidden in the sound
Lapping currents lay your boat aground 
GAffix your barb and bayonet
A BbThe curlews carve their arabesques
EmAnd sorrow fills the silence all around
Come and see VERSE 2 There's a harbor lost within the reeds A jetty caught in over-hanging trees
GAmong the bones of cormorants
A BbNo boot-mark here nor fingerprint
EmThe rivers roll down to a soundless sea
Come and see
G G/F# EmCome and see
CHORUS
D CThe tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye
Em D CThe willows mark the wind
Em D CAnd all we know for sure amidst this fading light
Em D CWe'll not go home again
B7 CCome and see
B7 C D EmCome and see
VERSE 3 In the lowlands, nestled in the heath A briar-cradle rocks its babe to sleep
GIts contents watched by Sycorax
A BbAnd Patagon in parallax
EmA foretold rumbling sounds below the deep
Come and see
G G/F# EmCome and see
CHORUS
D CThe tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye
Em D CThe willows mark the wind
Em D CAnd all we know for sure amidst this fading light
Em D CWe'll not go home again
