Verse 1:
C            C7      G              C
The birds cry their beautiful song
       C7         G
Broken shards of mud beneath its weathered talons
       C7          G                       C
Spring dawns, the freshly plumed phoenix
                C7                           G        Cadd9 D
Spreads its wings and glares at the inviting skyline


Chorus:
G                                 Cadd9
Wading through the waters of resilience
G                                        F
I watched you drown in a quandary of ambivalence
G                                                  Cadd9
The bravest sailors discard doubt to the fathomed big hole
G                                            F
Rise to the surface, to those hopeful shores you know
A                            C7
‘Cause you could not forgive and I cannot forget
A                                      F
So we commit out love to the depths of the great

Verse 2:
C           C7           G               C
Beautiful puzzles under amaranth skies
             C7         G                   C
Hearts with muzzles and a ghostly reprise
           C7         G             C
I wear no disguise, I wear no cape
             C7                 G   Cadd9 D
I wish to survive, not to escape


Chorus:
G                                 Cadd9
Wading through the waters of resilience
G                                        F
I watched you drown in a quandary of ambivalence
G                                                  Cadd9
The bravest sailors discard doubt to the fathomed big hole
G                                            F
Rise to the surface, to those hopeful shores you know
A                            C7
‘Cause you could not forgive and I cannot forget
A                                      F
So we commit out love to the depths of the great
