** I'm not 100% sure about the lyrics on this one. **

G                               C
When you mend the patches of my clothin'
G                                     D
You know every thread goes through my heart
G                               C
Guessin' that the river's gonna dry up
        G                   D             G
Well, I said that's not the reason why we part

Lookin' 'round the corner where I left you
Wonderin' whatever led me there
Knowin' that a quiet, unconscious feeling 
Could be bought to drown a memory anywhere

She said, "I don't want your medicine and 
C                              G
I don't need the sparrow in my heart"
When I'm covered by the thunder 
      C                                 D
I get rid of all your breath deep in my lungs
Spreadin' the wind apart

And when I touch the ceiling on a spring day
Wishin' it could heed up every crow
So that they could lift me by my shoulders
Take me from this frozen lake and let you know

Just that I want to be your medicine 
I want to feed the sparrow in your heart
When I'm covered by the thunder 
I'll get rid of all the breath deep in our lungs
Spreadin' the wind apart

Hell I'm still standing 'round the corner where I left you
Diggin' up a quite sufficient track
Never know when you're behind that angle 
With a tranquilizer gun in your sweet pair

Oh I want to be your medicine 
I want to feed the sparrow in your art
When we're covered by the thunder 
we'd become just one and feel the lightning shard
Sreadin' the wind apart
