         G   
It's a beautiful way to get lost
         Em                     C
All you need is a bottle and a few nagging thoughts
        G  
And a strong sense of all you ever wanted
          Em                                  C
And the strength to hold it to your chest as you kill it off
         Em                D       C        G
Oh, the road it will light up and guide you home
       Em         D       C     G
To a place as unfamiliar to you as a soul
         Em                D      C   G
There is nothing left now not to understand
               Em             D     C         G
And you were lost on such a small stretch of land

        G
She was all that your heart did demand
          Em                        C
And you fueled its ambition as you followed every plan
         G  
And you took leave of any common sense
        Em                                  C
Hoping that this doubt inside of you would soon be laid to rest
            Em             D       C      G
And as your heart forever settles in her hands
           Em          D       C        G
Where you feel a resignation that you never could have planned
         Em                D      C   G
There is nothing left now not to understand
               Em             D     C         G
And you were lost on such a small stretch of land

          Em...  G
When you lay--- down
          Em...  G
When you let--- go
       Em           C         G
Was it all that you came to expect?
       Em               C      G
Was it all that you've ever known?

      G
Well these are just three ways to drown
            Em                                C
So come on tie the weight onto your feet and let it drag you down
        G
To the bottom of the warm and calming sea
            Em                       C
All wrapped up in your cowardice is such a way to be
         Em               D        C      G
And the storm that's overhead will carry on
        Em                D       C     G
As you tell yourself you don't recall asking to be born
         Em                D      C   G
There is nothing left now not to understand
               Em             D     C         G
And you were lost on such a small stretch of land
           Em             D     C         G
you were lost on such a small stretch of land

Great, thanks! Appreciate the Meursault tabs! Any chance of The Dirt and the Roots and William Henry Miller?
