Intro C#m  F#m

C#m                       C#m
The lady comes to the gate
B                       C#m
Dressed in lavender and leather
C#m                      
Looking North to the sea
B
She finds the weather fine
                 A
She hears the steeple bells
   A                                         C#m
Ringing through the orchard all the way from town
B                     A
She watches seagulls fly
  A                           
Silver on the ocean stitching through the waves
                   C#m
The edges of the sky
      Bm                  D                     A
Many people wander up the hills from all around you
      E                      Amaj7                  E
Making up your memories and thinking they have found you
       C#m          G#m      A                        E  
They cover you with veils of wonder as if you were a bride
       C#m         G#m       A                          E
Young men holding violets are curious to know if you have cried
     A        E       A       E    A   E         A   E
And tell you why and ask you why, either way you answer

E                               Amaj7            E
Lace around the collars of the blouses of the ladies
E                       Amaj7           E
Flowers from a Spanish friend of the family
     C#m               G#m          Amaj7                    
The embroidery of your life holds you in and keeps you out
        E        C#m                  G#m       
But you survive, imprisoned in your bones
             Amaj7                    E
Behind the isinglass windows of your eyes

G#m                     C#m           A              
And in the night, the iron wheels rolling through the rain
         A                        C#m
Down the hills through the long grass to the sea
                      G#m          A
And in the dark, the hard bells ringing with pain 
A               C#m   
Come away alone

 C#m             B                         C#m
Even now by the gate with your long hair blowing
                    B                      
And the colors of the day that lie along your arms
        A                                      B
You must barter your life to make sure you are living
                      A   
And the crowd that has come, you give them the colors
A                                   C#m
And the bells and the wind and the dream

E           
Will there never be a prince
Amaj7                              E
Who rides along the sea and the mountains?
E                           Amaj7                 E
Scattering the sand and the foam into amethyst fountains
C#m            G#m              A                     E
Riding up the hills from the beach in the long summer grass
C#m           G#m               A                   E
Holding the sun in his hands and shattering the isinglass

Bm                               D                      A
Day and night and day again and people come and go away forever
           C#m      G#m                       A            E     
While the shining summer sea dances in the glass of your mirror
            C#m     G#m          A                          E    
While you search the waves for love and your visions for a sign
     C#m           G#m                  A                        E
The knot of tears around your throat is crystallizing into your design

           G#m          C#m         A
And in the night, the iron wheels rolling through the rain
          A                           C#m
Down the hills through the long grass to the sea
                       G#m          A     
And in the dark, the hard bells ringing with pain
A                                        C#m
Come away alone, come away alone with me
