Verse
=====

A         C               A
Into this strange elastic world
          C               A
Pont us kindly gave up a pearl
      D               G
His eternal stone and mud
                     D    D7  A
But ain't she lovely bone and blood

            C      A
Born of the sea
           Em    G         A
A thousand miles away from me
           D
A court of angels
             G
Wards of the sun

A future forming
  D     D7   A
A curse undone


Chorus
=======


  Riff 1

F#m        A             F#m                A
Under our softly burning lamp she takes her time

  Riff 1

F#m      A             E
Telling stories of our possible lives
    G                                    E    A
And love is the ink in the well when her body writes

  Riff 2

D          A                   D
I've been selfish and full of pride
              A                          D
And she knows deep down there's a little child
               A                  F#m
But I've got a good side to me as well
                  E                 D                 Dsus4 D
And it's that she loves in spite of everything else

Break

A C A Em G

Verse
=====


A             C                       A
A song in the tree has distracted her mind
             C                   A
Some other curious form of life
              D               G
Has made it's presence to her known
                       D    D7   A
And she coos so gently soft and low

            C                   A
Her shining face in a million reflections
        Em             G         A
in tiny raindrops that fall in a veil
          D                    G
Over our city like notes from above
                       D    D7    A
It overwhelms me! just aint that tough

Chorus
======

  Riff 1

F#m                A                       F#m
It's not that the darkness can't touch our lives
                   A
I know it will, in time

  Riff 1

F#m          A        E
But she's no ordinary valentine
     G
And now when the sun goes down
            E       A
she sheds a darling light.

  Riff 2


D          A                   D
I've been selfish and full of pride
              A                          D
And she knows deep down there's a little child
               A                  F#m
But I've got a good side to me as well
                  E                 D                Dsus4 D
And it's that she loves in spite of everything else

Outro
=====

A C A G D A



Notes: Watching James Mercer play it live on youtube. He does little embellishments 
which add a fair bit to the song a little. But they aren't really necessary if you just want 
to bash it out.

For example on the A chords he will generally play:

A A/G A

likewise on the C:

C C/G C

A good example of this is on here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mveay4Ff1BU
