Song: Handkerchiefs
Artist: Winterpills
Album: The Light Divides

This is a very pretty song, fun to play as well. As any folk song,
you need to have a good fingerpicking method to make this sound nice,
a pick wont do it here. It's not too tough to sing along to, and even
better if you have someone else to sing harmony.

Lyrics:
I cross the line
and see a face that can't be mine
through a long long night
to find a place where we all thrive
where every frail thing can survive
where we can live this dream of life

in a dim blue light
she saw his eyes give up the fight
a hand finds mine
traces answers on my spine
from malignant to benign
in the midnight smell of pine

walk, walk, further than you'll ever know
walk, walk, into the snow

a great divide
I didn't know her best friend died
drawn in black-light chalk
her ankles tied in flower stalks
we need a place where we can talk
just need a place where we can talk

into our handkerchiefs
into both our handkerchiefs
handkerchiefs
into both our handkerchiefs
walk, walk into the snow...


Simple enough, good luck, keep rockin'!

the notes on the D string for the main riff are optional. they dont actually play them but it makes the strumming pattern sound fuller, timing less awkward imo.
