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
aa 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        G            F
We'll lay here for years or for hours
F               G           Am        G
Thrown here or found, to freeze or to thaw
G   C          G          F
So long, we'd become the flowers
F              G            Am      C
Two corpses we were, two corpses I saw
 
Chorus:
      G                  F
And they'd find us in a week
 G        F           C
When the weather gets hot
 Am       Em           G          Am
After the insects have made their claim
       Em        Am           G         F
I'd be home with you, I'd 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 2:
       G   C       G            F
We'll lay here for years or for hours
      F          G         Am        G
Your hand in my hand, so still and discreet
 G   C         G          F
So long, we'd become the flowers
     F              G       Am         C
We'd feed well the land and worry the sheep
 
Chorus:
      G                  F
And they'd find us in a week
  G       F           C
When the cattle show fear
 Am        Em           G         Am
After the insects have made their claim
 Am        Em         G         Am
After the foxes have known our taste
        Am        Em         G          F
I'd be home with you, I'd be home with you
 
Bridge:
G                   F
They'd find us in a week

-We lay here for years or for hours-
 G        F           C
When the weather gets hot

-So long we become the flowers-
     G                   F
And they'd find us in a week

-We lay here for years or for hours-
 G        F           C
When the cattle show fear

-So long we become the flowers-
 
Outro:
     G                  F
And they'd find us in a week
G         F            C
When the buzzards get loud
 Am       Em           G           Am
After the insects have made their claim
Am         Em         G         Am
After the foxes have known our taste
Am         Em        G      Am
After the raven has had his say
 
Outro:
        G        Am          Em        Am
I'd be home with you, I'd be home with you
       G         Am          Em        Am
I'd be home with you, I'd be home with you
       G         Am          Em        Am
I'd be home with you, I'd be home with you
