Intro: [play intro/verse riff x2 with D chord]


Verse 1 chords: [use Intro/riff verse thru-out with D chord]
I went looking for a song for you
Something soft and patient to reflect it's muse
I took a walk with all my brightest thoughts
But the weather soon turned and they all ran off
Took to the ocean, in a boat this time
Only an idiot would swim through the shit I write
How can I talk of light and warmth?
I've got a voice like a gutter in a toxic storm


Chorus 1 chords:
        Bm                 A
All the dark words pouring from my throat
              G                     D
Sound like an oil slick coating the wings we've grown
             Bm                 A
There goes a love song drifting out to sea
          G                                     D[with intro/verse riff]
I'd sing along if I could hear over the oil slick


Verse 2: [use verse 1 structure]
So it came to pass and I came home
With four worn out limbs and not one love song
How predictable, this is all you got
Yet another selfish signpost to my ruin of faults


Chorus 2: [use chorus 1 chords]
All the dark words pouring from my throat
Sound like an oil slick coating the wings we've grown
There goes a love song drifting out to sea
I'd sing along if I could hear
Over the dark words pissing from my throat
Sounds like an oil slick coating the wings we've grown
There goes a love song drifting out of my reach
         G                                    Bm 
I’d sing along if I could see past the oil slick


Bridge chords:
Bm  A        G                 Bm   A          G
     The oil   slick, the oil slick,   the oil   slick

then,

Outro: [use bridge chords with bridge riff]
There is light but there's a tunnel to crawl through
There is love but it's misery loves you
There's still hope so I think we'll be fine
In these disastrous times, disastrous times
There is light but there's a tunnel to crawl through
There is love but it's misery loves you
We've still got hope so I think we'll be fine
In these disastrous times, disastrous times
