Am Fill

Am                      Em
Spring it came upon us, every insect filled the air
D                                    Am                        Fill
Dropped their wings upon my brother, cast their shadows on his hair
Am                                  Em
If we follow where they're leading, We will surely come before
D                               Am                       Am7
some unseen and wondrous magic, made of visions to explore


D                                   Am                      Am7
Near the town where we were living, was an old abandoned farm
D                                Am                        Am7
Every year we'd plant an orchid, in the shelter of it's arm
D                               Am                       Am7
To protect us from the madness, of the future still to come
Em                            C                            D
It will be like this forever, I will keep you safe from harm

Bridge
Am Em D Am Fill

Am                                 Em
Then they caught us in the summer, dressed in fathers finest clothes
D                              Am                         Fill
You the hat he wore to market, I the jacket filled with holes
Am                                   Em
I've been searching all these hours, for a hand as pale as bone
D                                       Am                            Am7
That would keep the strongest sunlight, and reflect the brightest stone

D                                   Am                           Am7
Near the town where we were living, was a warm and fragrant smell
D                             Am                       Am7
Of the orchid we had planted, now a forest tall and well
D                               Am                       Am7
What a statue to our greatness, what a story all will tell
Em                           C                           D
They'll remember us forever, they'll remember where we fell

Bridge
Am Em D Am Fill

Am
This old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders
G/C
Pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter
D
But still in the road, the traffic is silent
Am
The people they stare, and then they turn violent
C
If they should touch, the hem of your dress
Am
I would rise like a lion, strike out again
C
The faithful they wait, the faithful they wait
G/C
By the sign

D                                   Am                         Am7
Near the town where we were living, came a loud and joyous sound
D                                Am                             Am7
As the earth and all her beauty, picked us up from off the ground
D                                Am                     Am7
Carried far across the mountain, to a kingdom never bound
Em                              C                D
We will live like this forever, I will love you, I will love you
