[Verse]
   C#m                                  Bm
We walked along the rocks for nearly an hour
  C#m                                    Bm
I caught the way you looked at me in the sunlight
    C#m                                   Bm
You took something before you went in the shower
    C#m                                           Bm
You have suppressed the things that make you feel uptight
         E                  E/B           E               E/B
If I had known you couldn't swim we would never have gone in

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river 
A         E       D
 The only one who sees
A           E           D
 I lost his hand in the current
   E              C#m            Bm
It was the life I wanted and I’d hoped for
    E             C#m                 Bm
And now I am left sifting through the leaves

[Verse]
    C#m                                      Bm
His arms so hard, I saw his skin through his t-shirt
    C#m                                   Bm
The grass so tall, we knew we wouldn't be found
   C#m                                    Bm
We climbed into the stream so no one will be heard
    C#m                              Bm
And in no time at all there wasn't a sound
       E                  E/B           E               E/B
If I’d known you couldn't swim we would have never gone in

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river 
A         E       D
 The only one who sees
A           E           D
 I lost his hand in the current
   E              C#m            Bm
It was the life I wanted and I’d hoped for
    E               C#m                 Bm
And now you’re left sifting through the leaves

[Bridge]
   E
No colour to his skin, inform the next of kin
   E             D
No colour to his skin

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river
A         E     D
 The only one I see
A           E           D
 I left his hand in the current
    E             C#m                 Bm
And now I am left blowing through the trees

Great! One little correction in the lyrics:
"We climbed into the stream so no one will be heard"

I believe it's more like this:
"We climbed into the stream sure no one would be hurt"

It makes a lot of sense with the rest of the song, and it's what it sounds like from listening to several live versions of the song.

Thanks for the rating and the feedback. Yeah, I um'd and ah'd over that bit for a while and wasn't sure (the lyrics that people post on other sites have both versions). The more I listen to it the more I think it's "so no one would be heard" which makes sense with the previous line about not wanting to be found and the next line (""...there wasn't a sound"), and the live versions on YouTube have terrible sound quality so don't really help. Anyway, I don't think I'll lose too much sleep over it. Thanks again for your input!

Isn't it "and you're left sifting through the reeds"? Makes more sense with the river and all!
