Am    G          F      C    

[Verse 1]

     Am      Am/D 
Were not the same, dear
    F           C
As we used to be
    Am              G  
The seasons have changed
    F         D
And so have we
              Am               Am/D 
And there was little we could say
         F                    C
And even less that we could do
            Am                 G
To stop the ice from getting thinner
       F       C
Under me and you

[Verse 2]

   Am        Am/D 
We buried our love
      F          C
In a wintery grave
  Am              G
A lump in the snow
    F            D
Was all that remained
          Am            Am/D 
Though we stayed by its side
        F               C
As the days turned to weeks
        Am                 G
And the ice kept getting thinner
           F               C
With ever word that we'd speak


     F                 C
And when the spring arrived
        F             C#dim
We were taken by surprise
         Dm              G
When the flows under our feet
      C          F
Bled into the sea
And nothing was left
For you and me


Am     Am/D       F      C
Am     G           F      D
Am     Am/D       F      C
Am     G           F      C

[Verse 3]

     Am        Am/D 
Were not the same, dear
      F          C
And it seems to me
          Am            G
There's nowhere we can go
     F              D
With nothing underneath
       Am             Am/D 
And it saddens me to say
         F             C
What we both knew was true
         Am               G
That the ice was getting thinner
       F      C
Under me and you


    Am               G
The ice was getting thinner
       F      C
Under me and you

Sounds great! One minor correction- I think that an Am/D sounds better than the F#m7b5 you describe. I play that chord the same as an Am just with the middle finger lifted off the D string. Try it out.
