A strange, beautiful song. Despite the gorgeous William Orbit production this 
still sounds beautiful with an acoustic guitar.

Tuning: EADGBE capo 1 for the same key as the record 
NB chords relative to capo 1


A
Broken people get recycled
And I hope that I will sometimes be thrown off the pathways
                          Dm
What I thought was my way home
                   A
Wasn't the place I know
I’m not afraid of changing
I'm certain nothing's certain
What we are becomes our prison 
                      Dm
My possessions will be gone
                        A
Back to where they came from

F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       no-one is to 
F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       as natural as the 
F         Gm
Rain that falls
     Dm        Dm/Bb   A
Here comes the flood a-gain

A
See the rock that you hold onto
Is it gonna save you
When the earth begins to crumble
                            Dm
Why do you feel you have to hold on
                   A
Imagine if you let go

F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       no-one is to 
F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       as natural as the 
F         Gm
Rain that falls
     Dm        Dm/Bb   A
Here comes the flood a-gain

A      Dm7     F           Em7       A
Wash a-way the weight that pulls you down
Gbm      F          Dm7  Em7      A
Ride the waves that free from the dark 

A
Don't trust your eyes
                D
It’s easy to be-lieve them
F
Know in your heart
     Em7                A
That you can leave your prison

Gbm
Don't trust your mind 
                F
It's not always listening
Dm7
Turn on the lights
    Em7              A              
And feel the ancient rhythm

A
Don't trust your eyes
                D
It’s easy to be-lieve them
F
k
Know in your heart
     Em7                A
That you can leave your prison

F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       no-one is to 
F   G   Dm  Dm/Bb
Blame       as natural as the 
F         Gm
Rain that falls
     Dm        Dm/Bb   A
Here comes the flood a-gain

Really nice work Kevin - very quick and almost perfect! My '32 years playing guitar' ears have picked up the following minor changes - no pun intended! Add these and it's perfect! Brilliant song - just by using simple chords in an unusual order. Regards, Marc (not far away, in Barnet!) Happy playing....

The D in the first two verses should be Dm

The G on the word 'falls' should be Gbm

The D on the word 'away' just as the song speeds up should be Dm7

Of course, I just realised, it should also read WASH away (not push) and RIDE the waves (not light)

I believe the lyrics in the second line are "thrown off the pathways". Good chords!
