Intro (after banjo) - E E/Eb A A
Verse - E E/Eb A A
Chorus - F#m B E E/Eb A

Intro - E E/Eb A Ax2

E E/Eb
Summer, it came
A A
like a light across the highlands
E E/Eb A A
and we laid it down.
E E/Eb
You wore a dress
A A
made of light from the islands
E E/Eb A A
and we sent postcards home.

E E/Eb A A x2

E E/Eb
In dying light
A A
this was not to be forgotten
E E/Eb A A
‘cause we are the chosen few.
E E/Eb A A
Into the sea with the touch of softest cotton
E E/Eb A A
Beneath this angel moon

F#m B
Its been keeping me awake
E E/Eb A A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake

F#m  B
and I’m not so strong
E E/Eb A A
to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
F#m
and the things it threw away.

E E/Eb A A x2

E E/Eb
You wrote your name
A A
as we lay among the heather.
E E/Eb A A
What you left behind
E E/Eb A A
Following paths that would lead us both together
E E/Eb A A
Let us lose our minds

F#m B
Its been keeping me awake
E E/Eb A A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake

F#m  B
and I’m not so strong
E E/Eb A A
to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
F#m
and the things it threw away.

E E/Eb A A x4

E E/Eb
Summer, it fell
A A
and it coursed across the highlands
E E/Eb A A
and so quickly gone.
E E/Eb A A
Your faded dress for years now tied away and silent
E E/Eb A A
and the night’s late lullaby

F#m B
Its been keeping me awake
E E/Eb A A
Leaving this behind was my first mistake

F#m  B
and I’m not so strong
E E/Eb A A
to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
F#m
and the things it threw away.

E E/Eb A A
by all the things it threw away.
E E/Eb A A
By all the things it threw away
E E/Eb A A
By all the things it threw away
E E/Eb A A
By all the things it threw away

End on E
