[Intro]

C


[Verse]

           C                             D7 
Like the thorn bush twines against the chain link fence
          Dm                                  Fm G
Like the spider spins its rings between the trees
         Dm              G#m  G        C
And the lonely sycamore bends to the breeze


[Verse]

C                          D7 
I am the puddles in the street 
 Dm                        Fm  G
waiting for your falling leaves
  C                                     D7 
Twine your vines around me, drop your branches in my path


[Chorus]

 Dm                   Fm G
Linger, let me linger


[Interlude]

Fm G Fm G Fm G C


[Bridge]

  F                Fm           C
Hearts drawn on a dusty window pane, 
   Dm                     G
a love note lying in the road
   F             Fm                C
A car circling round a darkened street, 
   Dm                   G
a woman crying on the phone


[Verse]

C                                  D7 
We are like the crickets in the spring, 
 Dm                     Fm  G
calling out from under stones
  C                                     D7 
Twine your vines around me, drop your branches in my path


[Chorus]

Linger, let me linger

[Intro]

G C G Em C G


[Verse]

G                              C       G  
Oh, you little sparrows on a swaying branch
 Em                            C   G
Singing to the cars up on the overpass


[Chorus]

G        Bm    C        G
When you fly away from here

Take me with you when you go

G Bm C G Am C G


[Bridge]

D                      C               G
A herd of antelope, a sea of redwood trees
   Am                           D               D7
Schools of shining fish and a thousand buzzing bees


[Verse]

G                             C        G
Over winter parking lots the passing geese
 Em                       C         G
Rising in the air little dandelion seeds


[Chorus]

  G      Bm    C        G
When you fly away from here 
G             Am        C      G
Please don't leave me when you go


[Bridge]

D                         C             G
If I were Jonah tossed into the raging sea
    Am                                    D     D7
I would not fear the whale that came to swallow me


[Interlude]

G C G Em C G

G Bm C G Am C G


[Verse]

G                           C                G
Oh, you paper cups rolling down the windy street
Em                             C                  G
Oh, you little ants winding through the tangled weeds


[Chorus]

  G          Bm    C         G
Where you're going I don't care, 
G        Am        C      G
Take me with you when you go


[Outro]

TRACK 3 - MY FRIEND


[Intro]

F Fm C


[Verse]

    C              G            F                     C
I swear I heard a bird calling high in the chestnut trees
                 G           F                C
The sun was so bright, that bird I couldn’t see
                    G      F                     C
No matter where I stood I couldn’t see beak or wing
                         G       F                C
Just burning, blinding leaves, still and silent trees


[Chorus]

          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  C
Are you with me now?


[Verse]

  C                G         F             C
When that cement truck, the mixer turning slow
             G        F              C
Drove right past me dripping in the road
F                   C  G/B     Am
That swollen body spinning in circles
    Dm                    Am    F         C
I stopped and watched it roll, roll and groan


[Chorus]

          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  C
Are you with me now?


[Verse]

         C              G      F           C
When I swam alone that night, late summer dusk
                      G         F              C
The air so warm and still, the water wide and dark
F                                  C          G/B        Am
Something brushed against me, I splashed and kicked in fright
Dm               Am       F          C    G
Such cold hands upon me, underwater vines


[Chorus]

          C                E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               C
Are you with me now?
                           E  
Were you with me then my friend? 
 F               Fm  
Are you with me now?

TRACK 4 - WHEN YOU WHISPERED


[Intro]

A


[Verse]

            D                              A
Up on the drawbridge when we stood in the wind
             E             D         A
My car left running, the doors wide open
                 D                       A
The wind spread ripples along the river waves
              E                D          A
Your hands in my hair as the drawbridge swayed


[Chorus]

 E
You leaned in closer as the sun fell away
    D                                 A
A plastic bag trembled caught in the waves
E             D                                 A
   When you whispered what you whispered in my ear


[Verse]

                    D                      A
The breeze at the shoreline bent down the rushes
                    E            D      A
The sparrows cried out from the waving willows
              D                     A
And even the minnows in the muddy shallows
           E    D                 A
Even the frogs calling from the shadows


[Chorus]

 E
Even the wind leaned in to listen
           D                                 A
When you leaned in closer, your hands in my hair
E             D                                 A
   When you whispered what you whispered in my ear
E             D                                 A
   When you whispered what you whispered in my ear

[Verse]

     C                 C7       G              A7
My heart is a beating compass pointing to the pole
      Am               D7             G
The great expanse of stillness, the true magnetic north
C                    C7            G                 A7
I know the sky blue longing of a cloud of spiraling birds
Am                 D7          G                Gb13 G6 G7
All turning in an instant, a perfect spinning whirl


[Chorus]

G           C             G               Am               C  D7

G         C           G               Am        C       G
I am the dark valley calling to the trembling mountain peak

[Verse]

C                   C7            G                  A7
Wherever you are tonight as you close your eyes to sleep
  Am                 D7               G
Think of me as you drift away to the mist of silver dreams
            C               C7             G               A7
And I will find you in the darkness where water turns to steam
Am                  D7          G                 Gb13 G6 G7
Your pull upon my heart could steer ten thousand wings


[Chorus]

G           C             G            Am                 C  D7
I feel the loneliness of magnets and trembling mountain peaks
G      C                  G             Am      C   G
    I call you from dark valleys and I hear you echoing

For hundreds of miles the trees bend your way

I want to fall through the treetops and drift across lakes
     E                                              E7
The wind's in the oak trees, it's been raining for days

A honey as sweet as the moon's sugar glow

The leaves of the apple tree whispering low

The stars are on fire, the nightingales moan

[Intro]

D G A G D


[Verse]

    D                                       G
A smashed windshield, the dust on a pickup truck
  A                              G            D
Shine with silver secrets in the Albuquerque sun
     D                                               G
The light makes jewels of pawn shops and drive-thru banks
  A                             G              D
Wrinkled faces staring out the windows of the laundromat


[Chorus]

    Bm                     F#m
And even the broken glass scattered in the street
  A                             E
Shines like a thousand diamond rings


[Interlude]

Bm A Em G A D


[Verse]

 D                          G
Neon signs above the old motels, 
 A                                          G                 D
warehouse stores and strip malls, houses sprawled across the hills
     D                                      G
The sunset's a bird with wings made out of fire
 A                                G                D
Parking lots turn to gold as it glides across the sky
     D                          G
And every night from 6:00 to 6:05
     A                           G           D
The desert dirt shimmers like a sea of watermelon light


[Chorus]

Bm                     F#m
Even the broken glass shattered in the street
A                               E
Shines like a thousand diamond rings

A


[Verse]

 A                   G#m            G                  F#
Love is like a white moth sipping tears from sleeping birds
   F                   E
An asteroid in flames tumbling to Earth

 A                 F         A               F
Raindrops sliding down the stems of orange leaves
      A             F           A                  F      A
The flicker of a strange light far out across the sea


[Verse]

 A                   G#m  G              F#
Love is like a black fly buzzing in the sun
 F                     E
Circling and landing, dancing like it's drunk

A               F           A               F
All around the red apples scattered on the lawn
 A             F       A                    F     A
Fallen in the fury of last night's thunderstorm


[Verse]

 A               G#m   G                      F#
Love is like the hole torn right through the roof
           F                    E
When that old sugar pine came crashing down last night

      A                F             A                F
And above the broken beams and the shattered ceiling tiles
 A            F                A          F
You can see starlight for the very first time

TRACK 9 - THE PETRIFIED FOREST


[Intro]

D


[Verse]

                G    F#m 
When we were together    
                Bm Bm/A G
I lay in your river
        G           A        Bm   Bm/A Bm
As the fish swam through my hands

               G    F#m 
Raindrops and roses 
                Bm   Bm/A G
fell from the heavens
          G      A           D  Dsus4 D
Just to brush against your skin

                      G  F#m 
And a strand of your hair 
             Bm Bm/A G
lost to the wind
       G               A         D  Dsus4 D
Sent doves wheeling through the air


[Chorus]

             G  A                   D     Dsus4 D
But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
G               A            Bm  Bm/A Bm
  Stumbling on rocks in the dark
         G  A              D    Dsus4 D
But I remember, I still remember
          G               A        D  Dsus4 D
When you held me in your beautiful arms


[Interlude]

G F#m Bm Bm/A G A Bm Bm/A Bm


[Verse]

Bm                 G  F#m 
When you left me alone 
                    Bm Bm/A G
the sky turned to stone
        G           A        Bm  Bm/A Bm
And my legs rolled into the sea
             G   F#m 
Why did you go? 
                Bm Bm/A G
The sea was so cold
    G         A            D   Dsus4 D
My arms blew off in the breeze
                    G        F#m 
I search for your footprints, 
              Bm   Bm/A G
the scent of roses
        G         A         D  Dsus4 D
As the wind weeps over the sea


[Chorus]

             G  A                   D     Dsus4 D
But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
G               A            Bm  Bm/A Bm
  Stumbling on rocks in the dark
         G  A                  D    Dsus4 D
And I remember, I'll always remember
          G               A        Bm   
When you held me in your beautiful arms


[Outro]

TRACK 10 - WILD WOOD


[Intro]

A


[Verse]

            A    E              A
Give me a swamp,   a deep dark bog
             D                                A
Where I can lose my way in pools of slippery mud
                    D                         A
Give me cold, cold rain, a cloud of stinging bugs
                                E                      A
Deadly nightshade, poison oak, give me the wild, wild wood


[Chorus]

     E         D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood
     Bm        D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood


[Verse]

                  A    E                    A
We can dress in skins,    wrap our feet in bark
              D                           A
And you can growl at me or hit me with a rock
                  D                         A
When you want to say, "I love you," in the dark
                        E           A
And I will bark like a dog in your arms


[Chorus]

     E         D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood
     Bm        D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood


[Interlude]

A E A D A D A E A


[Verse]

               A   E                     A
We can make a god     out of sticks and bones
           D                                A
Or we can pray to the trees or pray to the sun
                    D                     A
And our eyes will shine when we start to sing
                           E                 A
With the hungry wolves outside our freezing cave


[Chorus]

     E         D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood
     Bm        D                 A
The wild, the wild, wild, wild wood


[Outro]

A

Darling, my darling, look at my waving antennae
    Am             C        G
My barbed jaw and hard red pincers, 
       Em            G        C
the stripes running down my spine

 Em          G        Am       C          G
Darling, my darling, watch me fly up in spirals
  Em        G               C
Admire the horns 'neath my eyes, 
                         G
the fan of my beautiful wings

while dreaming only of thee

Darling, my darling, down in the dew-dropped rushes
Em         G           C
I beat my head in the darkness 
                         G
and build a fortress of tunnels

 C           G        Am            C            G
Darling, my darling, your snapping fangs don't scare me
      Am            C        G
I'll leap on your spine and love you 
          Am      C          G
till you gnaw me down to my wings


[Chorus]

Am             C     G
I'll give you everything
Am             C     G
I'll give you everything

Oh my darling

Oh my darling

[Verse]

G            Cm
I came to a field of green 
           G                   Cm
where the corn stalks grew so tall
     Am                 C
The sunlight could not pierce 
        Am             C  Cm
to the winding path below

 G                 Cm
Round and round I went 
   G                 Cm
under those waving stems
   Am                    C
I followed the shadowed path 
           Am                C  Cm
marked so faintly with her step


[Chorus]

 Am                  C
Down in the winding corn maze 
        Am           Cm           G
where green stalks shiver in the wind

where green stalks shiver in the wind


[Verse]

       G                 Cm
Such spirals spread for miles 
   G                 Cm
through the bending leaves
  Am                 C
There in a swarm of bees 
    Am               C  Cm
I knelt down at her feet

         G              Cm
And she took me to her arms 
          G             Cm
in that cloud of honey bees
  Am                C
Whirring in their whirling 
         Am             C   Cm
as they rose on golden wings


[Chorus]

 Am                  C
Down in the winding corn maze

TRACK 13 [BONUS TRACK] - THE RED LEAF FOREST


[Intro]

G D G


[Verse]

 G           D        G
Deep in the red leaf forest
   C                G
A hunter with his crossbow
 C             G
Came upon the secret pool
       A              D 
Where Diana took her hair down

        G       D       G
And he saw her perfect body
  C                   G
Shining through the thickets
 C                G
Such a blinding beauty
     D              G
He could not say a word


[Verse]

      C                              
And though he stood there speechless
     G                  C
She felt his eyes upon her
         G                C
And she turned him to a white stag
     A             D      
And set his dogs upon him

         G            D         G
And the dogs didn't know their master
      C                 G
They tore that stag to pieces
      C                    G
Then called and called to him
     D              G
Who couldn't say a word


[Interlude]

G D G C G C G A D C Bm Am 


[Verse]

    G      D          G
But as he lay there bleeding
     C               G
He smiled up at the sunset
C                 G
She who took his life from him
A                    D  D7
Was worth twice the cost

  G        D         G
Swirls of deep red leaves
     C               G
Fell on his perfect body
         C                G
And he smiled up at the trees
     D               G
But could not say a word


[Verse]

  C                      
When the fig tree blooms
          G                C
When the vine is red with berries
  G                 C
Swallows soon will gather
          A             D   C Bm Am
To steal every drop of sugar

         G     C        G
And the world turns in circles
          C                 G
In such wheels of burning beauty
      C                 G
Each morning kills the night
     D            G
Without a single word
      C                 G
Each morning kills the night
     D            C   Bm Am G
Without a single word
