Verse 1

   F#m11
To be,
  E
A bee, a moth.
F#m11                                     E
Four wings spread for the soft last touch
         A
Of glory sun,
                  E                  A
Remembering blood plums and lips and lemons –
                      E 
One hundred different suns
                       D
In a hundred different heavens.
F               A
Spied from a rowboat –

Chorus

D#m     G         G#m
Stroke, nought is spoken,
  A        D#m          G        E
Before you know it, the spell is broken,
D                E
You might wonder where you are,
A        D#m    G    F#m11 
Floating on the reservoir.
 
Verse 2

          E  
Oh I have counted the notes
   F#m11
We landed here not many years ago
                        E               A 
And it was not a pretty song that we composed:
                E
La, la, la, the early bird he knows,
                  A
You hang from the cherry bough
                   D             F
When you're lichen yourself, and leave –

Chorus

    A         D#m      G         F#m   
The cold cold scent of stone and mulch,
A     D#m           G          E
Great stone wall to stave the rush,
   D                      E
To think that peace might be too much,
A       D#m      C   B  
Waiting for that giant

Verse 3 

    F#m11       E
The lake... the fir-fringed lake –
F#m11       
Placid and ample, birded, breezed and dappled
            E 
Through the mountain break,
                     A
Through the mountain break,
     E               A        D    F    
A moment take, a moment, a moment...

Bridge

A 
You might wonder where you are,
D#m
Perched up on the reservoir,
G
Adolf in the white hotel,
A
All this time we've been in hell,
A         D#m    G         F#m   
You might wonder where you are,
A        D#m      G    F#m   
Perched above the reservoir,
D           E
Luis of the lake retire,

Outro

  A         D#m     D       A   
Before they set the lake on fire
  A         E       D       A   
Before they set the lake on fire
  A         E       C    B  F#m11   
Before they set the lake on fire

F#m  E (repeat to fade)



The End

Chorus sounds more like this to me:

Chorus

C#m G F#m
Stroke, nought is spoken,
A C#m G E
Before you know it, the spell is broken,
D E
You might wonder where you are,
A C#m G F#m11
Floating on the reservoir.
