INTRO:
[Am] [Amb6] [Am4] [Am] [Am] [Am] [Fmaj7/A] [C] 
VERSE 1:
No [Am]time, no [Amb6]place, to [Am4]talk about the [Am]weather
The [Am]promise of [G6/A]love is [Fmaj7/A]hard to ig[C]nore
[Am]You said the [Amb6]chance wasn't [Am4]getting any [Am]better
The [Am]labour of [G6/A]love is [Fmaj7/A]ours to en[C]dure
[Am]Highest [Amb6]branch on the [Am4]apple [Am]tree
It [Am]was my [G6/A]favourite [Fmaj7/A]place to [C]be
[Am]I could [Amb6]hear them [Am4]breaking [Am]free
[Am]But they [G6/A]could not [Fmaj7/A]see [C]me
CHORUS 1:
[F] [F]I will [G]run for [G]shelter, [C]endless [C]summer [Am]lift the cur[Am]se
[F] It [F]feels like [G]nothing [G]matters [C]in our [C]private [Am]univer[Am]se
BRIDGE 1:
[Am] [Am] [Am] [Am]  
[Am] [Am] [Am] [Am] [Am] [G6/A] [Fmaj7/A] [C] 
VERSE 2:
I have all I want, is that simple enough?
A whole lot more I'm thinking of
Every night about six o'clock
Birds come back to the pond to talk
Talk to me, birds talk to me
If I go down on my knees
CHORUS 2:
I will run for shelter, endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters in our private universe
Feels like nothing matters in our private universe
BRIDGE 2:
[Am] [Am] [Am] [Am]  
And it's a [C]pleasure that [C]I have [D5]known[D5]
[Fmaj7]Oooooh.[Fmaj7]..[Fmaj7] [Fmaj7]
And it's a [C]treasure that [C]I have [D5]gained[D5] [D5] [D5]
[Fmaj7]Oooooh.[Fmaj7]..[Fmaj7] [Fmaj7]
And it's a [C]pleasure that [C]I have [D5]known[D5] [D5] [D5]
[Am] [Amb6] [Am4] [Am] [Am] [G6/A] [Fmaj7/A] [C] 
[Am] [Amb6] [Am4] [Am] [Am] [G6/A] [Fmaj7/A] [C] 
VERSE 3:
It's a tight squeeze but I won't let go
Time is on the table and the dinner's cold
CHORUS 3:
I will run for shelter, endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters in our private universe
I will run for shelter, endless summer lift the curse
Feels like nothing matters in our private universe
