-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Macheeoo

Tuning: Standard CAPO III


Verse -
G    Bm   Am   
Hear my voice
        Em        D        C
I came out of the woods by choice
G            Bm      Am
Shelter also gave us shade
       Em      D     C
In the dark I have no name

G              Bm         Am
So leave that click in my head
         Em           D            C
I will remember the words that you said
G                        Bm   Am
With a clouded mind and heavy heart
       Em           D          C
But I am sure we'll see a new start


Chorus -
Em  D              G        C
      So when your hopes on fire
Em  D              G       C
      But you know your desire
            Em                D
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               G          C
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Em         D
I will call you by name
       G            C
I will share your load


Verse -
G          Bm          Am
I wrestled long with my youth
           Em        D       C
I find it hard to live in the truth
G                 Bm    Am
But do not tell me all is fine
                Em       D       C
When I lose my head, I lose my spine

G            Bm         Am
So leave that click in my head
           Em        D             C
I will remember the words that you said
G                  Bm      Am
You brought me out from the cold
     Em               D          C
O How I long, how I long to grow old


Chorus -
Em  D              G        C
      So when your hopes on fire
Em  D              G       C
      But you know your desire
            Em                D
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               G          C
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Em         D
I will call you by name
       G            C
I will share your road

Bridge - 
Em           Em
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
            C    G    D   Em
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer
Em           Em
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
            C    G    D   Em
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer
Em             Em                      C   G   D   Em
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I wander
Em             Em                      C   G   D   Em
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I wander
C    G   D   Em
The skies I wander

The verse should actually be G then G/F# kinda thing, but with the 5th string open.

OldHairyOne, actually it shouldn't be :/ I first tabbed this song in Capo 5 which is how Marcus plays it. Then transcribed the chords to play Capo 3, which is how I preferred it. The verse is actually a Bm.

thanks for looking into though!

Also, for anyone coming in after the release of 'Babel' you should know -- I tabbed this BEFORE the album released based on live performances online. So I know the lyrics are a bit rearranged on the album version but the chords n such are all there. Happy playing!
