Snow Patrol - Set The Fire To The Third Bar

D     xx0232
Cadd9 032033

Bm	A	G x2

Bm		A		G
I find the map and draw a straight line
Bm		A		G
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Bm		A		G
The distance from me to where you'd be
Bm		A		G
It's only finger-lengths that I see
Bm		A		G
I touch the place where I'd find your face
Bm		A		G
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

Bm		A		G
I hang my coat up in the first bar
Bm		A		G
There is no peace that I've felt so far
Bm		A		G
The laughter penetrates my silence
Bm		A		G
As drunken men find flaws in science

Bm		A		G
Their words mostly noises
Bm		A		G
Ghosts with just voices
Bm		A		G
Your words in my memory
Bm		A		G
Are like music to me

Bm			D	
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
And sets me down in your warm arms

Bm		A		G
After I have travelled so far
Bm		A		G
We'd set the fire to the third bar
Bm		A		G
We'd share each other like an island
Bm		A		G
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
Bm		A		G
And dreaming pink wildfire
Bm		A		G
The last place we left off
Bm		A		G
Your soft skin is weeping
Bm		A		G
A joy you can't keep it

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
And I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

Bm			D
I'm miles from where you are,
A			G
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm			D
I pray that something picks me up
A			Cadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

all good, except on the first verse,

Bm A G
'I touch the place where I'd find your face
Bm A G
My fingers in creases of distant dark places'

should infact be, Bm A G
