D	    A           E
 There is a house built out of stone
D       A                 E
 Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
D           A              E
 Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust...


-Bm	D	A	E-
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home...


-D	Amaj7	D	A	E-
Cause, I built a home  for you	  for me
Until it disappeared from me	from you	


-D	Amaj7	D	Gbm 	A	E-
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...


-D	A	E-
Out in the garden where we planted the seeds


-Bm	D	A	E-
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees


By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me......


-D	Amaj7	D	A	E-
And, I built a home  for you	  for me
Until it disappeared from me	from you	


-D	Amaj7	D	Gbm 	A	E-
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

    I told myself I wouldn’t cry while playing this but I’m a big wimp and ended up a bawling mess.

    I played this song +3 up, and I found it very easy! I also thought it fit my female voice range better. I hope this helps anyone who would like to play this song as well!
