Black Silk Ribbon
KT Tunstall and Bic Runga

Em  Am  G  B7
It was cold
she was colder
she wore a black silk ribbon in a bow around her throat
for her lover
she walked the halls her young heart singing

Em  G  D

Em  Am  G  B7
He left a note
on the pillow
in the lamplight
words were dancing
something smooth on her fingers
black silk ribbon like a cold comfort

Em  G  D 

     Em        Am            G       B7
I'm leaving he said and I'll find my own way home

Em  Am  G  B7
And the hounds
in the courtyard
they were waiting
for their master
when a cry
from the window
don't you love me?

Em  G  D

Em  Am  G  B7
But for him
it was simple
it wasn't till he noticed there was something in her eyes
in the mirror
the ribbon came as a surprise, he cried

Em  G  D

Em            Am             G         B7      Em
leave me she said and you'll find your own way home

    C            G         D
But wasn't there something better waiting?
C          G
Didn't you feel it too?

Em  G  F#7 B7
See the black silk ribbon fly, fly-y-y-y
See the black silk ribbon fly, fly-y
and the hounds they were waiting-ng-ng-ng-ng

Em  Am  G  B7

     C           G         D
But wasn't there something better waiting?
C           G      Am  A
Didn’t you feel it too?
C            G           Am           G      Am           Em
Wasn't there something between me and you? between me and you?
