Intro:D-A-Em x6

Verse 1 Chords:
D       A                   Em     D
   When everything we felt failed
          A                    Em     D
And some music soft in distant sails
       A                       Em      D
But it don't sound like it did before
        A                          Em       G  Em   D
Then I know I'm left with nothing more than my own soul

Verse 2: Use verse 1 Chords
When pretty pictures face back
But your coats aren't hanging on the rack
And blue water turns to
A place that I can't get to, a place that I can't

Verse 3: 
     A           Bm           C                  G    D   
In a room all I feel, is the cold that you left
         A             Bm           C                  G           
Through the air all I see, is your face full of blame
Em      A       D  Dsus Bm  G       A        D  Dsus D  
What's left to see,         what's there to see

SOLO: (played slowly so listen to CD to follow along)
   D A      Em  D     A  Em        D  A Em   D A  Em  

Verse 4: Use Verse 3 chords
In the room all I feel
Is the cold that you left
through the air all I see
is your face full of blame
what's left to see
what's there to see
what's left to see

The solo sounds best if you play it with a metal slide.
