No capo

Intro

(the C chord here is less a C chord and more of a softly fingerpicked 0-2 hammer-on on the D string. I use the side of my thumb to imitate Joey Eppard's weird string attack.)

G C G

G C G

Verse 1

GI don't know your naCme G Did I Gdream you toCnight? G Did I Emdraw the heavens down? ADrape my arms around? An Dangel in flight? Looking Glike you love me stCill G As you Gkill me goodCbye G As you're paraEmchuting to the ground, Awatching me go down D AD7bandoned in flight You left me to Gdie C G

Chorus

Somehow, the Dsus2chiming of shadows reminds me of you The Chaunted and hollow, the Emlight passing through The Dsus2sound of your sorrow on the echoes of blue Down a Cwind water tunnel, at the Emturn of a screw Doing Aall that you can do to be the Dwall I'm walking D7through

Verse 2

GWhispers in the dCark G Can I Gsteal you toCnight? G From the Emwreckage piled high, we'll Aclimb back to the sky DLeap from the ledge, full of D7faith we can fly G C G

Chorus

So come on, reDsus2animate, angel, break from your cage CWitness the prophecy Emsprung from the page The Dsus2moon in your marrow, the smoke on your skin The Cmask in the mirror, the Emmonster within But the Abarrier is thin and the Droom begins to spiD7n

Solo

Chorus 3

Don't you know that the Dsus2war has blown over? We weathered the storm The Cgrass has grown over the Emgraves that we mourn Now the Dsus2brightness is teeming, the chains slip away The Cwolf in the wool is no Emlonger at bay The Dsus2portal is open, the walls disappear CJump through the hoop and the Emhell out of here A Dsus2song in a box on wheels we have blown CGlides on the back of a Emsnake made of stone Through Dsus2shadows unfolding and clouds fallen slack At the Cedge of tomorrow with Emno turning back ReDsus2animate, angel, break from your cage CWitness the prophecy Emsprung from the page The Dsus2moon in your marrow, the smoke on your skin The Cmask in the mirror, the Emmaster within Oh, but Dsus2I've seen your sorrow at the edge of the screen CSoften the focus and Eminto a dream Brief instrumental:

Outro chorus

But the Dsus2barrier is thin, and the Croom begins to spinEm The Dsus2barrier is thin, and the Croom begins to Emspin The Dsus2moon in your marrow, the Csmoke on your skiEmn The Dsus2portal is open, and the Ckingdom is withEmin
