[Verse]
A                                              G F
  Oh lord, won't you leave me, leave me on my knees
                             G
Cause I belong to the ground now
                      A
And it belongs to thee
                                                    G F
And oh lord, won't you leave me, leave me just like this
                             G
Cause I belong to the ground now
                        A
I want no more than this
                                                  G F
How I long for the autumn, the sun keeps burning deep
                     G                     A
Every stone in this city keeps reminding me, oh!
                             G F
Can you protect me from what I want?
                      G
The love I let in, it left me so lost

[Chorus]
A        G
  Mother, make me
F            Dm
  Make me a big tall tree
A         G           F               Dm
  So I can shed my leaves and let it blow through me
A        G
  Mother, make me
F           Dm
  Make me a big grey cloud
A         G         F                      G    A
  So I can rain on you things I can't say out loud

G F G  (intro riff)

[Verse]
A                                                     G F
  All these couples are kissing and I can't stand the heat
                              G
I lost my shoes and left the party
                      A
I wander in the street
                                                   G F
I put my feet into the fountain, the statues all asleep
                       G
No use wishing on the water
                       
It grants you no relief

[Chorus]
A        G
  Mother, make me
F            Dm
  Make me a bird of prey
A         G        F                Dm
  So I can rise above this, let it fall away
A      G
Mother, make me
F          Dm
Make me a song so sweet
A     G       F                  A
Heaven trembles, fallen at our feet

G F G
