Intro: riff
Verse:
[Cmaj7]Smells in the air,
[C9]See there it's crashing the [Cmaj7]final impression that stains the [C9]paper
Where the [Em]words felt like water,
Une[Em7]arth all the changes that [Em]never did matter,
Em7 riff (w/ same chords but quiet in background)
I think it's beginning to freeze here (Cmaj7,C9,Cmaj7,C9)
(Em,Em7,Em,Em7)

after riff:
[Cmaj7]Caught in the rage and the [C9]fire of things,
All the [Cmaj7]brightness that burns me, I'm [C9]fumbling through like a
[Em]Child in the dark, when the n[Em7]akedness comes,
I am sh[Em]ocked by the color, the glo[Em7]rious weight of your
Chorus (first word of chorus is the end of the previous sentence):
[Am]Skin
Comes al[C]ive
And I n[G]ever thought we'd m[D]ake it back so s[Am]oon
Might be n[C]ice
But I kn[G]ew you'd be your o[D]wn destroyer
[Am] Comes a t[C]ime

[Cmaj7]Here please forgive me,
how co[C9]uld we escape all the b[Cmaj7]itterness piled upon b[C9]itterness?
(pickup) Em Em7
Held in the face of the things that I don't understand
Intell[Em]ectualize, [Em7]over and over this he[Cmaj7]lplessness suits us,
It's f[C9]unny how quiet has sli[Cmaj7]pped to our corners and w[C9]orn all our edges
A[Em]way you are watching, b[Em7]reathing and baiting,
[Em]Wanting and warming and c[Em7]autiously waiting
For so[Cmaj7]me simple signal, to cr[C9]eep 'cross our conscience,
Unc[Cmaj7]over redemption and [C9]oh did I mention I
[Em]Carried you down, to the [Em7]St. Lawrence River,
The b[Em]anks running dirty, the w[Em7]ater is beginning to fr[Cmaj7]eeze here[C9]
Solid by [Cmaj7]morning,[C9]
And I'll fre[Em]eze here,[Em7]
Be[Em] winter [Em7]by mornaaaayaayaaiang
Chorus 3:
[Am] Comes al[C]ive
And I n[G]ever thought you'd m[D]ake it up so s[Am]oon
Might be n[C]ice
But I [G]always knew you're m[D]y destroyer
[Am] Comes a l[C]ive

When I always new I'd make it up to... You

Verse 3, more quiet: (After riff)
[Cmaj7]I saw on your face, such a c[C9]urious grin,
As I l[Cmaj7]et go your hand I was d[C9]esperate to hold you
Ag[Em]ain, but you're sinking, too d[Em7]eep in the water,
Outsm[Em]arted myself, and so [Em7]easily gave up what I
(insert riff here)

Be winter by m[Em]ornaaaay[Em7]aayaaiang
