[Intro]

Bm      A      G (x2)


[Verse 1]

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


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus] (x2)

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

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
