 Oh You Are The Roots That Sleep Beneath My Feet And Hold The Earth In Place  Bright Eyes






Bright Eyes - Oh, You are the Roots That Sleep Beneath my Feet and Hold the Earth in Place





D                             Bm


I met you through a common friend


           G               D


in the attic of my parent's house


         D                    Bm


and though I didn't know it then


   G                         A


I soon was finding out


                  Bm                       G


you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet


       D                         A


and hold the earth in place


                   Bm


each time a faucet opens


G


words are spoken


       D         A


the water runs away


       G


and I hear your name


       D


no, nothing has changed





D Bm G D





 D                     Bm


there was this book I read and loved


       G             D


the story of a ship


        D                        Bm


who sailed around the world and found


        G                  A


that nothing else exists


                  Bm


beyond his own two sails


          G


and wooden shell


       D                 A


and what is held within


              Bm


all else is sure to pass


        G


we clutch and grasp


       D                            A


and debate what's truly permanent


                      G


but when the wind starts to shift


           D


there's no argument


(Interlude)


   D                            Bm


I sing and drink and sleep on floors


      G                     A


and try hard not to be annoyed


     D            Bm          G


by all these people worrying about me


                    D                                   Bm


so when I'm suffering through some awful drive


             G             A


you occasionally cross my mind


            D                      Bm                   G


it's my hidden hope that you are still among them


well are you?


(Interlude)


                       Bm                          G


Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet


        D                        A


and hold the earth in place


                  Bm


each time a curtain opens


G


sunlight pours in


     D          A


a lifetime melts away


         G


and we share a name


              D


on some picturesque grave
