Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
D            G
I'll bury my downcast hours in transparent ink,
D                 G
tie myself to the mast and wait here for the ship to sink
Em                     G         A       G
though I know I've set sail on a wishing well

D            G
the daylight is dimming out slowly with every breath I take
D            G
gasps of air become roaring rivers keeping me awake
Em             Bm      A            G
it gives me no time to think things through
Em             Bm      A            G
I know words always come before you do


Chorus (essentially same as intro) 
      A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
but I can't find no poetry left in these lines
          A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
I've been trying too hard, too long, too many times

Bridge:
D A G
D A G

D            G
is this what a biochemist would call happiness?
D            G
is it part of some unmade promise I thought I could forget?
Em                Bm       A        Em
is it time that I let some air come through?
Em                Bm       A         Em
for now strangeling love is all I can do


Chorus:

      A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
yeah, I know you have mountains of poems in mind
      A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
all explaining how all wounds will heal given time

Bm                                      E
but these days are no longer my time to spill
      G            A                             E
and I know that by waiting, I'll make them stand still

Bridge: (listen to song)
A F  
A F C 
A F Bbm F C A... 


D            G
I kept it as close as I could through those winter nights
D            G
but the ropes only tighten round me as I try to fight
Em                        Bm         A       Em
there's no worth throwing stone in a wishing well
Em                        Bm         A       Em
now I'm out of black ink and true tales to tell

Chorus: 
      A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
and I know it's all poetry, know they're just lies
      A                    Bm            (5-3-2-0-2-3..)
but I'll still scavenge on what I find inbetween those lines
Bm                                      E
I'll pretend there was happiness, fake to have felt pain
      G            A                            E
just to feel there's a reason to read it again
