Lilies  Bat for Lashes

Again tonight I [E]sang a song, [B]
[C#m]a prayer if you will[E]
[E]Fell to the floor on bla[B]ckened knees,
and a[C#m]ll the trees fell s[E]till
[E]Pressed my hands between my[B] thighs,
[C#m]and poured the thistle [E]milk
[E]Begged the thunderbolts t[B]o strike
[C#m]and mark me as a[E]live
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[C#m]Scented the nig[E]ht
[E]And so I finished up m[B]y prayer,
[C#m]rose slowly and I star[E]ed
[E]But I was empty as a g[B]rave
[C#m]and ghostless was the [B]air
[E]Lay back to bed and du[B]lled my eyes
[C#m]and searched those fru[G#m]itless skies
[E]Again begged the thunderbolt [B]to strike
[E]to mark me or else I woul[C#m]d die
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[C#m]Scented the nig[E]ht
[E]And in the second before [B]I sleep
[E]And in the second before [B]I sleep
[E]Did I believe what I did [B]see?
[C#m]Did I believe what came [G#m]to me?
[E]Appeared a figure of [B]a man,
[C#m]waving upon the [G#m]hill
[E]To the window I r[B]an
[C#m]and saw what he h[G#m]ad sent
[E]Children of a private[B] world,
[C#m]to be conceived in [E]milk
[E]A hundred marching to m[B]y door
[C#m]All bringing dreams to [E]drink
[E]Thank God I'm alive!
[E]Thank God I'm alive!
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[C#m]Oh the lilies o[G#m]n the hill
[E]Oh the lilies [B]on the hill
[C#m]Scented the nig[E]ht
E - B - C#m - B (in the 7th fret, i know it should sound the same but it gives it something different)
[E] [-] [B] [-] [E]
