chord/acoustic version of Out of our Hands by Gemma Hayes
by Collwyn Craig

Csus4: x3301x

intro/bridge: C Csus4 C Csus4

C                            Csus4
   The subtle shift inside,
   a battle's won,
 the inside killed the outside 

       F      Dm
and Im sorry, if I let you think, 
better of me 
but you were holding on too tight 

            F     G
Maybe we'll fall,
            Am    C 
maybe we'll fly 
it's out of our hands, 
               G          C
its out of our hands this time 


  The night's collapsing on us now, 
  you'll feel better when you go
  you didnt push me, little one, 
  I jumped on my own and 
Im glad,
as I release my grip 
Im picking up speed 
no-one will follow us here 



Meet me at the back of the crowd 
this could be our time to slip away 
you say the bigger you dream 
the smaller your street looks in the rain 

Ah come on now, 
but you and I know now 
it's so much more now 
than just being bored 


it sounds like the first chorus, and the 2nd of each pair of choruses
are actually only 5 bars of 4/4 and one bar of 2/4
(so that the final G is only two beats)

the first verse seems to be:
3 bars of 4/4, one bar of 2/4 (the F is short)
then 4 bars of 4/4

you can play Csus4 as a straight up F chord if you want, 
I found that Csus4 allows for a better sounding transition to F mid-verse

First of all, thank you so much for your work. This helped me learning this song in only two sessions of guitar playing (and I am only a beginner).
But what is confusing me now is your notes at the end. I am listening to the version of Gemma's new live album Night & Day when playing it. And in contrast to what you are mentioning I hear the following:
1. The chorus consists of 3 bars: F G / Am C / F G //. Thus each chord is only played half.
2. The last chord of the chorus, which is C, already belongs to the following bridge.
3. The verses consist of 2 sets with each 4 bars: C / Csus4 / C / Csus4 // F / Dm / Am / G //.
3. At the end of the 2nd verse, G sets in on "no-ONE will follow us here".
I hope I made myself understood and didn't confuse you in turn, as I am neither a native of English nor am I familiar enough with the language of musical notation. It is also quite possible that Gemma plays the song differently on my version!?
