[Cmaj7]Smells in the air,
[C9]See there it's crashing the [Cmaj7]final impression that stains the [C9]paper
Where the [Em]words felt like water,
Une[Em7]arth all the changes that [Em]never did matter,
Em7 riff (w/ same chords but quiet in background)
I think it's beginning to freeze here (Cmaj7,C9,Cmaj7,C9)

after riff:
[Cmaj7]Caught in the rage and the [C9]fire of things,
All the [Cmaj7]brightness that burns me, I'm [C9]fumbling through like a

I am sh[Em]ocked by the color, the glo[Em7]rious weight of your

Chorus (first word of chorus is the end of the previous sentence):

[Am]Skin

And I n[G]ever thought we'd m[D]ake it back so s[Am]oon

[Cmaj7]Here please forgive me,
how co[C9]uld we escape all the b[Cmaj7]itterness piled upon b[C9]itterness?
(pickup) Em Em7
Held in the face of the things that I don't understand
Intell[Em]ectualize,  [Em7]over and over this he[Cmaj7]lplessness suits us,
It's f[C9]unny how quiet has sli[Cmaj7]pped to our corners and w[C9]orn all our edges
A[Em]way you are watching, b[Em7]reathing and baiting,
[Em]Wanting and warming and c[Em7]autiously waiting
For so[Cmaj7]me simple signal, to cr[C9]eep 'cross our conscience,
Unc[Cmaj7]over redemption and [C9]oh did I mention I
[Em]Carried you down, to the [Em7]St. Lawrence River,
The b[Em]anks running dirty, the w[Em7]ater is beginning to fr[Cmaj7]eeze here     [C9]

Solid by [Cmaj7]morning,  [C9]
And I'll fre[Em]eze here,   [Em7]

[Am]     Comes al[C]ive

Verse 3, more quiet: (After riff)
[Cmaj7]I saw on your face, such a c[C9]urious   grin,
As I l[Cmaj7]et go your hand I was d[C9]esperate to hold you
Ag[Em]ain, but you're sinking, too d[Em7]eep in the water,
Outsm[Em]arted myself, and so [Em7]easily gave up what I
