                            Hydrogen - Natalie Holmes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I used this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmlKMPR11TU) on Natalie's Youtube channel 
to figure this all out. It appears to be mostly the same as the album version except for the intro.

It looks like a lot but it is fairly repetitive, many of the parts repeat themselves in some way
throughout the song. I was just trying to make sure that I got all of the details.
Listen to the song to get a feel for it. Let me know if any corrections need to be made.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)
Timing: Standard 4/4

* This is the tab for the live version she plays in the video I linked above. 
For the album version: play the first half of phrase as in the first repetition but finish it
as in the second repetition.

Lyrics:

 (Verse 1)
Pale white hands entwined,
Like we're in a dream,
Ghostly figures dine,
Over candlelight.

 (Pre-choruse)
But soon I have to go into the shadows,
I need your arms to keep me safe...

 (Chorus 1)
From the fruit filled with whispers and with lies,
One more taste will leave me dry to the bone.
A transparent face begins to heal,
I was living like a ghost but you made me real.

 (Verse 2)
Summer warmth is gone,
I'm heading back to a place where I apparently belong.

 (Pre-chorus)
A force pulling me in,
I can't fight it.
Your hands, helping me escape.

 (Chorus 2)
From the fruit filled with whispers and with lies,
One more taste will leave me dry to the bone.
A transparent face begins to heal,
I was living like a ghost but you made me real.

 (Bridge)
If I go back there what will I do,
Like a ghost I'll drift away from you.
I will try to make it right again,
Cos we're entwined like oxygen and hydrogen
