Intro B, G#m, E, F# B You breathed infinity into my world G#m and time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl. E F# B We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night. G#m E Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind, F# E F# B we'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him" but oh, G#m E now my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found, F# but I was alive and now I've drowned. G#m E B So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song F# E, F# so they can tell me I was wrong... G#m But they weren't there beneath your stare, E and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of B F# any bindings from the world outside that room. G#m And they weren't taken by the hand E and led through fields of naked land B F# where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... G#m F# E so I couldn't say "no". B, G#m, E, F# B G#m You sighed and I was lost in you, weeks could've past for all I knew. E F# You were the blanket of the over-world and so I couldn't say, B G#m E I wouldn't say "no". But they all said, "you're too young to even know, F# E F# just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him" B G#m E but oh, now, my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found, F# but I was alive and now I've drowned. G#m E B So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song F# E, F# so they can tell me I was wrong... G#m But they weren't there beneath your stare, E and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of B F# any bindings from the world outside that room. G#m And they weren't taken by the hand E and led through fields of naked land B F# where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... G#m But they weren't there beneath your stare, E and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of B F# any bindings from the world outside that room. G#m And they weren't taken by the hand E and led through fields of naked land B F# where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away... G#m F# E so I couldn't say "no".
