moderate tempo in 3.

INTRO:  Asus4, A, Asus4, A, A7

VERSE 1:
Oh the [D]winter of emotions[E] [C#/F]
Sometimes [F#m] steals in[/E]to my [D] head
It's the [D]tundra of [A/C#] the shutdown[Bm] [/A]
It's the [E/G#]burying [E/F#] the dead[E]
And I'd [D]like to make my [E]springtime[C#/F]
But I [F#m] have no [/E] real recourse[D]
Except to [D]wait on some [A/C#] long [Bm]loving
From some [E]deep and pure [A7sus4]source [A7]

CHORUS:
And [A]You lay me down [G]
You whisper somehow[D] [Asus4] [A]
I can [A]hear it when I'm[G] very[Esus4] still [E]
You don't[A] ever touch [E/G#]me
Or [F#m]chase away[C#m] the chill[D]
But [D]one [A/C#]day [Bm]soon [/E] You [A7sus4]will [A7] [A7sus4] [A7]

VERSE 2:
Oh the [D]art of all my [E]problems [C#/F]
Is [F#m]in how [/E]they're resolved[D]
I [D]try until[A/C#] I'm hopeless[Bm] [/A]
And [E/G#]then a hand [E/F#] so soft[E]
Is [D]brushing back my hair[E] [C#/F]
From its [F#m] clinging [/E] to my [D] face
From [D]crying God[A/C#] I live in[Bm]
Such a [E]weak and desperate [A7sus4]place [A7]

REPEAT CHORUS:
And [A]You lay me down [G]
You whisper somehow[D] [Asus4] [A]
I can [A]hear it when I'm[G] very[Esus4] still [E]
You don't[A] ever touch [E/G#]me
Or [F#m]chase away[C#m] the chill[D]
But [D]one [A/C#]day [Bm]soon [/E] You [A7sus4]will [A7] [A7sus4] [A7]

BRIDGE: (bridge lick twice, then) A7, A7sus4, A7, A7sus4

REPEAT CHORUS: (raised an octave, and louder)
And [A]You lay me down [G]
You whisper somehow[D] [Asus4] [A]
I can [A]hear it when I'm[G] very[Esus4] still [E]
You don't[A] ever touch [E/G#]me
Or [F#m]chase away[C#m] the chill[D]
But [D]one [A/C#]day [Bm]soon [/E] You [A7sus4]will [A7]

TAG: (back down an octave, and softer)
You don't[A] ever touch [E/G#]me
Or [F#m]chase away[C#m] the chill[D]
But [D]one [A/C#]day [Bm]soon [/E]
You will.

OUTRO:  A7sus4, A7, A7sus4, A7, A
