Intro: Arpeggiate open A chord

A                   D
I wanted to find a hollow
  E                 D           A 
a place to fill the empty in my mind
A                         D
My silence had me caving inwards 
      E                D                 A
and I longed for us to speak between the lines

Bm                     D                            
And when I'd find that hollow
 A                          E
I'd leave every trace of it behind 
A                     D
I'd have known you'd follow
E                       D           A 
but this hollow was for me alone to find 
C#                 D
Or so I thought 
C#                 D
Or so I thought, oh what a fool 

Oh what I was, oh what you are
these are the strangest times 
E                             A
Has my young love faded out of sight?
F#m                                               D
Oh where we were and where we are, they're not so far apart 
E                                      A      Bm            A
We'll set off for that hollow at first light, yeah we will, yeah we will 

A                       D
At last we reached the hollow 
   E                D             A
we sink down in the moss upon the ground 
   A                        D
My compass had been helter skelter, 
E               D                 A
like a fly in a fish bowl buzzing round 

     Bm                        D
Your heart against my chest a-humming 
   A                                E
it sings your song of sorrow to me now 
A                         D
But my songbird shall not wallow
E                  D              A 
drawn back to this secret we have found
C#                           D  
And I hear the water rushing down below
C#                        D
it doesn't matter now, oooooh

[Repeat Chorus]

[Cello solo over A and E]

[Repeat Chorus x2]
[Last line slower]

F#m                         E
Oh and we were, oh and we are
