[INTRO]
n.c.
Bm Bm


[VERSE 1]
Bm
       Many, many years ago,
G#m7-5
       When I was a little child,
F#m/A
       Mama told me you should know,
A
       Our world is cruel and wild,
Em/G                                Bm/D         Bm
       But to make your way through cold and heat
       C#              F#7
       Love is all that you need


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
Em
       I believed her every word,
C#m7-5
       More than anything I heard
F#sus4          F#                  Bm      F#7/C# Bm/D
       But I was  too scared to lose  my fun
G#m7-5
       I began to cry a lot
G
       And she gave me apricots
Bm/F#         F#7                    Bm       n.c.
       Kisses of the earth, fruits of  the sun


[CHORUS]
    Bm
Apricot stone,
G            D
Hidden in my hand
A             Em
Given back to me
C              C#m7-5 F#
From the motherland
    Bm
Apricot stone,
G              D
I will drop it down
A             Em
In the frozen ground
C                C#m7-5    F#
I’ll just let it make  its round

    Bm
Apricot stone,
G            D
Hidden in my hand
A             Em
Given back to me
C              C#m7-5 F#
From the motherland...
       Bm
Apricot  stone


[INTERLUDE 1]
( Bm ) | C#m7-5/B |


[VERSE 2]
Bm
      Now I see the northern stars
G#m7-5
      Shining brightly in the storm
F#m/A
      And I’ve got an avatar
A
      Of my love to keep me warm
Em                          Bm
      Now I’m not afraid of violent winds
          C#
      They  may blow
          F#
      They  can’t win


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
Em
      May the winter stay away
C#m7-5
      From my harvest night and day
F#                                 Bm     F#/C# Bm/D F#m/A
      May God bless and keep my cherished fruit
G#m7-5
      Grow my tree up to the sky,
G6
      Once I waved my home goodbye
Bm/F#        F#              Bm
      I just wanna go back to  my roots


[CHORUS]
    Bm

From the motherland

Apricot stone,

I’ll just let it make  its round
