Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
GOh, I was naive
GMy shoes were untied
Bm G CIn Heaven everything is just fine
GBut the phones are dead
GAnd so is the light
GAnd so are you
CAnd, honey, so am I
GBut the Earth still turns
GFor the unconcerned
CDays pass below like train windows
GI was a sapling tree
GThe birds looked like me
COh, I begged my nerves to kick me something new
[Chorus]
AFrom time to time
GI'd watch you sleep
Em Bm C C GOh, I wonder how much freedom we can dream
Am Em GAnd I'm sorry when you wake up to me
[Verse 2]
GI just got tired
Am A G AmShining steady like a spider web's an empty stage
GNow people say
GWhat drugs did you take
Em GAnd why don't you start taking them again?
Em G* EmBut they're not my friends
GAnd if I was dead
Bm G CWhat difference would it ever make to them
AmIf I got high?
[Chorus]
GFrom time to time
Em Bm G Em* GOh, I wonder how much freedom you would need
Am C GAnd I'd be sorry when you wake up to me
[Interlude] A A A* C C A A A* C C* A A A C Em G G G C G [Verse 3]
GI'm reaching out to you
Em GI'm writing all the time
Em G CI don't see deep but I see far and wide
GI see dead trees
GBut the roots have leaves
Em G Em G EmJust because I can't describe it doesn't mean I shouldn't try
GTo untwist the knife
Em GTo unmake my mind
C G CHaving been is no way to be alive
[Chorus]
AmAnd I'm alive
A GWhen I watch you sleep
Em Bm C Em* GI wonder how much freedom we need
Am GAnd I'm here when you wake up to me
C GAnd I'm still here when you wake up to me
