[Am]And how it whispered, oh, ad[D]here to me, [Am]   for we are bound by [D]symmetry
[Am]And whatever differences our [D]lives have been, [G]  we together make a [C]limb   [C/B]
[Am]This is the story of your [D]red right an[G]kle   [C]    [G]    [C]

[G]This is the story of your [C]gypsy uncle, [G]you never knew cause he w[C]as dead
[G]And how his face was carve[C]d and ripped wrinkles[G], in the picture in [C]your head
[Am]And remember how you[D] found the key,[Am] to his hideout in [A]the [Asus4]Pyrenees
[Am]But you wanted to keep [D]his secret safe, so[G] you threw the k[C]ey away     [C/B]
