Note: The majority of the verse is just the note G, not an actual chord. But the lead melody implies a Gm 
tonality.


[Verse]
G
You fell from the sky
G
Crash landed in a field
G
Near the river Adur
G
Flowers spring from the ground
G
Lambs burst from the wombs of their mothers
G
In a hole beneath the bridge
G
She convalesce, she fashioned masks of clay and twigs
G
You cried beneath the dripping trees
G
Ghost song lodged in the throat of a mermaid

[Chorus]
        Gm
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you

[Verse]
G
You're a young man waking
G
Covered in blood that is not yours
G
You're a woman in a yellow dress
G
Surrounded by a charm of hummingbirds
G
You're a young girl full of forbidden energy
G
Flickering in the gloom
G
You're a drug addict lying on your back
G
In a Tijuana hotel room


[Chorus]
        Gm
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you
        Bb
With my voice
     C       Gm alt
I am calling you


[Verse]
G
You're an African doctor harvesting tear ducts
G
You believe in God, but you get no special dispensation for this belief now
G
You're an old man sitting by a fire, hear the mist rolling off the sea
G
You're a distant memory in the mind of your creator, don't you see?

[Chorus]
        Gm
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you
        Bb
With my voice
     C       Gm alt
I am calling you

[Bridge]
G
Let us sit together until the moment comes
        Gm
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you
Bb                 F                                  Gm alt
Let us sit together in the dark until the moment comes

[Chorus]
        Gm
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you
        Bb
With my voice
     C       Gm alt
I am calling you
        Bb
With my voice
     F       Gm alt
I am calling you
        Bb
With my voice
     C       Gm alt
I am calling you
