Verse =====
A C AInto this strange elastic world
C APont us kindly gave up a pearl
D GHis eternal stone and mud
D D7 ABut ain't she lovely bone and blood
C ABorn of the sea
Em G AA thousand miles away from me
DA court of angels
GWards of the sun
A future forming
D D7 AA curse undone
Chorus ======= Riff 1
F#m A F#m AUnder our softly burning lamp she takes her time
Riff 1
F#m A ETelling stories of our possible lives
G E AAnd love is the ink in the well when her body writes
Riff 2
D A DI've been selfish and full of pride
A DAnd she knows deep down there's a little child
A F#mBut I've got a good side to me as well
E D Dsus4 DAnd it's that she loves in spite of everything else
Break ===== A C A Em G Verse =====
A C AA song in the tree has distracted her mind
C ASome other curious form of life
D GHas made it's presence to her known
D D7 AAnd she coos so gently soft and low
C AHer shining face in a million reflections
Em G Ain tiny raindrops that fall in a veil
D GOver our city like notes from above
D D7 AIt overwhelms me! just aint that tough
Chorus ====== Riff 1
F#m A F#mIt's not that the darkness can't touch our lives
AI know it will, in time
Riff 1
F#m A EBut she's no ordinary valentine
GAnd now when the sun goes down
E Ashe sheds a darling light.
Riff 2
D A DI've been selfish and full of pride
A DAnd she knows deep down there's a little child
A F#mBut I've got a good side to me as well
E D Dsus4 DAnd it's that she loves in spite of everything else
Outro ===== A C A G D A Notes: Watching James Mercer play it live on youtube. He does little embellishments which add a fair bit to the song a little. But they aren't really necessary if you just want to bash it out. For example on the A chords he will generally play: A A/G A likewise on the C: C C/G C A good example of this is on here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mveay4Ff1BU Corrections welcome.
