Intro: C5 G5 A5 F5

C5          G5
When the birds are sleeping
A5                    F5
That's when the trees sing
C5               G5
You left your winter clothes, 
          A5                 F5
And your teeth marks in my skin

C5                     G5
So shake the leaves, off the trees, 
A5                F5
Watch them float down the stream
C5                 G5
Your son, your daughter
A5                F5
Swimming in the water

 C5 G5 A5 F5

C5            G5        A5            F5
And I miss you, even when you're around
C5             G5
I'm a black cloud, 
           A5              F5
Sending lightning to the ground

C5                 G5             A5
So darling please, show your teeth
                F5                 C5
Just one more dance to help me sleep
Whirl, cold water eyes
A5                    F5 
Fill the past with friendly nights
C5            G5                      
Human skin, can be hard to live in
 A5               F5              C5        
You'll feel better in the morning
G5            A5             F5       C5
Wash your hands in the lake
G5              A5
You've got a heart, some way

*Repeat for other verses*

Trails lost in the snow
Make way for winter's eerie glow
And that black rock in your bedroom
I hope you'll climb it soon
In your boat, tied to a tree
I hope you'll find the sea

Throw me a dream please, it's been a dreamless sleep
For such a long time, such a long time
Sing myself awake
Watch the branches break
No one could ever take your place

Wash your face in the lake
You've got a diamond under your skin
