Verse 1:
         Am         Em             G              Am        F
I have never known peace like the damp grass that yields to me
        Am          Em               G            Am        F
I have never known hunger like these insects that feast on me
  F         Am        G                  Am
a thousand teeth and yours among them, I know
      F      Am           G             Em     Am
Our hungers appeased, our heart beats becoming slow
 
Pre-Chorus 1:
      G   C        D            G
We'll lay here for years or for hours
Cadd9             G       Cadd9            G
Thrown here or found, to freeze or to thaw
      G   C        D            G
So long, we'd become the flowers
Cadd9             G       Cadd9            G
Two corpses we were, two corpses I saw
 
Chorus:
  G                    G
And they'd find us in a week
 G        C       G
When the weather gets hot
      G   C        D            G
After the insects have made their claim
       C      G               C        G
I'll be home with you, I'll be home with you
 
Verse 2:
        Am           Em             G            Am        F
I have never known sleep like this slumber that creeps to me
       Am           Em               G       Am        F
I have never known colors like this morning reveals to me
            F              Am           G           Am
And you haven't moved an inch such that I would not know
        F                 Am   G              Em  Am
If you sleep always like this, flesh calmly going cold
 
Pre-Chorus:
      G   C        D            G
We'll lay here for years or for hours
Cadd9             G       Cadd9            G
Your hand in my hand, so still and discreet
      G   C        D            G
So long, we'd become the flowers
Cadd9             G       Cadd9            G
We'd feed well the land and worry the sheep
 
Chorus:
    G                  G
And they'd find us in a week
G         C            G
When the cattle'd show fear
      G   C       D            G
After the insects have made their claim
      G   C        D            G
After the foxes have known our taste
       C         G           C       G
I'll be home with you, I'll be home with you

I'll be home with you, I'll be home with you
