Verse

 GD
I keep floatin' down the river, but the ocean never comes
 GAmAm7
And since the operation, I heard you're breathing just for once
 Em7F#/G
Now everything is imaginary, especially what you love
       Em7                     Dsus2       Dsus*          * G|-0h2-0------|
You left another message, said "it's done", it's done       D|------0h2-0-|


 GG/A
 GD
When I hear beautiful music, it's always from another time,
 GAmAm7
Old friends I never visit, well, I remember what they're like
 Em7F#/G
Standing on a doorstep full of nervous butterflies,
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
Waiting to be asked to come inside, just come inside

 G
Chorus

 BmD
But I keep Go-oh-oh Go-oh-oh-in' out
 GF#/GEm7
And I can sleep next to a stranger when I'm comming down
 BmAmG
It's 8A.M. my heart's beating too loud, too loud       
 BmAmEm7Am
Don't be so amazing, or I'll miss you too much
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
I felt something that I have never touched

(I may be wrong, this part is tough to hear under the strings)

 G
 GD
Everything gets smaller now the further that I go

 GAmAm7
Towards the mouth and the reunion of the known and the unknown
 Em7F#/G
Consider yourself lucky if you think of it as home
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
You can move mountains with your misery if you don't, if you don't
 GD
It comes to me in fragments, even those still split in two
 GAmAm7
Under the eaves of that old Lime Tree I stood examining the fruit
 Em7F#/G
Some were ripe and some were rotten, I felt nauseous with the truth
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus*
There will never be a time more opportune

 BmD
So I just won't be late
 GF#/GEm7
The window closes, shocks roll over in a tidal wave
 BmAmG
And all the color drains out of the frame    
 BmD
So pleased with a daydream that now living is no good
 GF#/GEm7
I took off my shoes and walked into the woods
Em7 Dsus2 Dsus* G
I felt lost and found with every step I took
