Am
Wherever we go, we'll never be lost
Some follow the compass rose, some follow the cross
      C
Me, I follow roads compulsively, till sirens call me off
       Em
Then I wander, eyes closed, following songs
    Am
This rivers a hymnal, the leaves are applause
The trees sing in whispers, with the wind pulling their arms
     C
Hold still, and listen, your hand on my heart
       Em
If you need them, these beacons will lead you back to the start
Yup
Am
No ax has seen these woods since before your father stood
The path is beaten good from the feet of all who wandered through it
C
Old growth, holds hope, let the brambles scrape your skin
Em
   Scars are storybooks, blood will wash away your sins
Am
Now let that sun slip, then let that moon rise
Follow in no footsteps, listen for the true guides
C
Woods will play tricks upon pretty blue eyes
               Em
Is that glimmer the river, or your village finally brought
        Am
back to life?


Follow me tonight, I'll show you
          C
what's it like
       Em
To be alive

  Am
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets,
              C 
We know the unknown, know the unknown
           Em
Know the unknown
     Am
Keep close, hold my hand now, just be strong
We can follow this river right
             C
back to your home
Back to your home
             Em
Back to your home

       Am
At the palace in Versilles, 400 years before this day
They're packing up supplies, preparing for a long trip
C
They may not survive, but many of them know this
Em
They would rather die, than to leave the question open

   Am
So this is why we try? We bet it all on hopeless?
And swim against the tide till until our every bone is broken
  C
A sinking ship is still a ship, no captain spoke the obit
         Em
Till the crew is flew, crow's nest slips silent beneath the ocean
       Am
We set sail without an anchor, we count upon that, never stop
An anchor's just a coffin nail, waiting for that hammer drop
   C
It holds you by the ankles till it pulls you to the Acheron
      Em
Trade stable to be able to slip out from under devil's thumb
Am
   Keep your anchors, my home is where my hat is hung
Postcard printed paper, and love notes from the lattice rungs
C
Blessed are the vagrant, the lonely are the static ones
     Em
It's every drifter's confirmation this world is just ravishing

  Am
I know it seems like we're all lost, we can follow this
           C
river back home
River back home
           Em
River back home

  Am
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets,
              C
we know the unknown
Know the unknown
           Em
Know the unknown
     Am
Keep close, hold my hand now, just be strong
We can follow this river right
             C
back to your home
Back to your home
             Em
Back to your home
  Am
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets,
              C
we know the unknown
Know the unknown
           Em
Know the unknown

Am
