VERSES:

Bmspring it came upon us,
F#mevery insect filled the air
E7dropped their wings upon my brother,
Bmcast their shadows on his hair
Bmif we follow where they’re leading,
F#mwe will surely come before
E7some unseen and wondrous magic
Bmmade of visions to explore
CHORUS:
E7near the town where we were living
Bmwas an old abandoned farm
E7every year we’d plant an orchid
Bmin the shelter of it’s arm
E7to protect us from the madness
Bmof the future still to come
E7it will be like this forever
Di will keep you safe from harm
BRIDGE: (with vocals, no lyrics) Bm F#m E7 Bm VERSE 2 (as before) CHORUS 2 (as before) BRIDGE 2 (as before) BRIDGE 3 (repeating bridge 2, but with vocals over the top):
Bmthis old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders
F#m pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter
E7but still in the road, the traffic is silent
Bmthe people they stare, and then they turn violent
Bmif they should touch, the hem of your dress
F#m i would rise like a lion, strike out again
E7the faithful they wait, the faithful they wait
Bmby the sign
CHORUS 3 (as before) Lyrics: verse 1 spring it came upon us, every insect filled the air dropped their wings upon my brother, cast their shadows on his hair if we follow where they’re leading, we will surely come before some unseen and wondrous magic made of visions to explore chorus near the town where we were living was an old abandoned farm every year we’d plant an orchid in the shelter of it’s arm to protect us from the madness of the future still to come it will be like this forever i will keep you safe from harm verse 2 then they caught us in the summer dressed in fathers finest clothes you the hat he wore to market i the jacket filled with holes i’ve been searchins all these hours for a hand as pale as bone that would keep the strongest sunlight and reflect the brightest stone chorus 2 near the town where we were living was a warm and fragrant smell of the orchid we had planted now a forest tall and well what a statue to our greatness what a story all will tell they’ll remember us forever they’ll remember where we fell bridge this old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter but still in the road, the traffic is silent the people they stare, and then they turn violent if they should touch, the hem of your dress i would rise like a lion, strike out again the faithful they wait, the faithful they wait by the sign chorus 3 near the town where we were living came a loud and joyous sound as the earth and all her beauty picked us up from off the ground carried far across the mountain to a kingdom never bound we will live like this forever i will love you i will love you i will love you
