[Intro]
Dm Dbm x3

[Verse 1]
              Dm
This soul's a stowaway at the heels of a gaze,
                           Cm
their eyes betrayed in the arcade.
                                             Gm
Misdirection pervades, and my image fades of you. (Where are you?)
           Dm
Could we return to the hymn of the lake? 
                                       Cm
Grave refrains of impossible love, not believing what they'd say,
                                          Gm
haunting heralds whose words were lost on you. (Where are you?)

[Chorus]
    C
I'd bare you my heart
                                Gm
if I knew that it still was there.
                   Bb
I'm too nervous to look,
              Dm
too afraid to close the book.
    C
So, take all the wind from my lungs
                   Gm
if you're out of air.
                Bb
Just deliver me truth.
                Bbm
Just deliver me you.

[Intro Reprise]
Dm Dbm

[Verse 2]
                  Dm
How'd we lose our place? Who decided our fate?
                      Cm
Decay until we we're erased, idly wasting away.
                             Gm
Well, the nightmare's ending soon. (Where are you?)

[Chorus]
    C
I'd bare you my heart
                                Gm
if I knew that it still was there.
                   Bb
I'm too nervous to look,
              Dm
too afraid to close the book.
    C
So, take all the wind from my lungs
                   Gm
if you're out of air.
                Bb
Just deliver me truth.
                Bbm
Just deliver me you.

[Bridge 1]
F Am x2

       Bb
If the younger me just could have seen
    Dm
the trouble I'd create,
     Db                         F   Am
he'd never have agreed to carry on.
     Bb
When sins of sons to fathers come,
    Dm
too heavy is the weight.
    Db              F
The spirit split in two

[Bridge 2]
  Cm7 Gm
F Cm7 Gm

F
  Dear apparition, in this fleeting flash:
      Cm7 
Must I    burn the earth before you turn to ash?
Gm
   Would such extremes repair our broken past?
    
    Bb
The silver lining seldom lies
   Dm
in sight too plain to see,
    Db
but trust our story's end can bring redemption for the pain endured.

[Awake]
Dm Fm Gm x6
