Excuse the commentary throughout the song, I'm discovering I like TDH a lot as well.

CAPO 3


ORDER: I V1 PC1 INT1 V2 PC2 C INT2 B FPC FINT FC O


[INTRO] (this "oh" motif strangely resembles that in "My Land", Sonata Arctica)
C | | Am | F |
C | | Am | F |


[VERSE 1]
Am                      C
   I thought that I knew love,
              C             G               Fadd9 F
   but it was just the wave crashing over us
Am                      C
   And in the breaths between the ones we meant to breathe,
            G             Fmaj7
   I had my head under my feet


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
Fmaj7                       G6
     you knew the way things  were
Fmaj7                      G6
     you knew the way they would be
Fmaj7                G
     we knew exactly how it'd end


[INTERLUDE 1] (lick. Somewhat reminiscent of Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf", Peter/string section)
Am  | C | |
3/2  4/4

C   G | F | F n.c.|
3/2    4/4


[VERSE 2]
Am                  C
   Strays on a stable sea
        C                      G                 Fmaj7
   I'll anchor the engine to a canyon far beneath
Am                     C
   The water rushed up from the boards below,
        C                   G
   so I started slicking my hair with the kerosene


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
Fmaj7                       G6
     you knew the way things  were
Fmaj7                      G
     you knew the way they would be
Fmaj7                G
     we knew exactly how it'd end


[CHORUS] (plus "oh" motif)
C             Cmaj7           C         Am
   And I'm prepar - ing for a burial at sea
       Fmaj7                   G
   and I    can't see the lighthouse
C           Cmaj7                       C           Am
   yeah I'm pray - ing that these waters don't take me
         Fmaj7                   G
  'cause I    can't see the lighthouse


[INTERLUDE 2] (lick x2)
Am  | C | |
3/2  4/4

C   G | F | |
3/2    4/4

Am  | C | |
3/2  4/4

C   G | F | |
3/2    4/4


[BRIDGE]
Dm
   I was screaming that the ship was sinking,
Am
   but you were telling me to just keep drinking
G
   quartered in the parts again
Am
   arms and legs in the bottom of the ocean
Dm
   and the thing that made it so much harder
Am
   was the fact that you were someone's daughter


[FINAL PRE-CHORUS]
Fmaj7
     I knew the way things were
Fmaj7
     I knew the way they would be
Fmaj7               Dm
     I knew exactly how it'd end


[FINAL INTERLUDE] ("oh" motif)
C  | | | |
Am | |

    Fmaj9
And I    can't see the lighthouse


[FINAL CHORUS]
C             Cmaj7           C         Am
   And I'm prepar - ing for a burial at sea
       Fmaj7                   G
   and I    can't see the lighthouse
C           Cmaj7                                   Am7
   yeah I'm pray - ing that these waters don't take me
         Fmaj7                   G
  'cause I    can't see the lighthouse


[OUTRO]
(oh motif)
C  | | | |
Am | | 
      Fmaj9                   G
Yeah, I    can't see the lighthouse

(verse echo)
Am                        C
    I thought that I knew love
               C           G             Fmaj7
    but it was just a wave crashing over us
