Intro: E  A  B  A

Verse:
E
I want something 
D                     Dbm
That's purer than the water 
E
Like we were 
E
It's not there now 
D                Dbm
In eloquence and anger 
E
Are all we have 
E
Like Saturn's rings 
D           Dbm     
An icy loop around me 
E
Too hard to hold 
E
Lash out first 
D                    Dbm
At all the things we don't like 
E
Or understand 

Chorus:
                      Dbm
And it's beginning to get to me 
                        B
That I know more of the stars and sea 
                    A     
Than I do of what's in your head 
                   E
Barely touching in our cold bed 
                     Dbm 
Are you beginning to get get my point 
                             B
They're always fighting with aching joints 
                       A
It's doing nothing but tire us out 
                       E
No one knows what this fight's about 

Verse:
E
The answer phone 
D                   Dbm
The lonely sound of your voice 
E
Frozen in time 
E
I only need 
D                    Dbm
The compass that you gave me 
E
To guide me on 


                      Dbm
And it's beginning to get to me 
                        B
That I know more of the stars and sea 
                    A
Than I do of what's in your head 
                   E
Barely touching in our cold bed 
                     Dbm
Are you beginning to get my point 
                             B
They're always fighting with aching joints 
                       A
It's doing nothing but tire us out 
                       E 
No one knows what this fight's about 
                      Dbm
It's so thrilling but also wrong 
                             B 
Don't have to prove that you are so strong 
                    A
Cos I can carry you on my back 
             E
After our enemies attack 
                    Dbm
I tried to tell you before I left 
                    B
But I was screaming under my breath 
                            A
You are the only thing that makes sense 
                     E
Just ignore all this present tense 

Interlude: E  A  B  A

E                     A
We need to feel breathless with love 
    B                      A 
And not collapse under its weight 
    E               A
I'm gasping for the air to fill 
   B                          A
My lungs with everything I've lost 
   E                  A
We need to feel breathless with love 
    B                       A
And not collapse under its weight 
    E               A
I'm gasping for the air to fill 
    B                         A
My lungs with everything I've lost
