Ashes of Us  Brett Anderson

This is such a beautiful song Im surprised no ones beaten me to the punch
Ashes Of Us is quite an easy song to play chord wise
But its made difficult to perform simply because the main meat of the song is in
the counter melodies and harmonies from piano /
clarinet / cello / chimes / backing vocals. Anyway on with the show.
Please note you will find using a capo to play this makes it a lot easier
(and if you don't have one do consider buying one - I recommend the shubb ones as
they last forever)
If you're fortunate enough to have one put the capo on the third fret.

[Eb] [Dm]  
[Eb]( Tab from: https://www[F] )
[Eb]Where the sky is grey[Dm]
[Eb]And the clouds are torn[F]
[Eb]And the strange ones play[Dm]
[Cm]And the insects swarm[A#]
[Cm]Falling like feathers
[A#]Drifting like petals
[G#maj7]Pieces of paper
[Gm7]The ashes of us
[Eb]Break like bone china
[A#]Faces in mirrors
[G#maj7]Piece us together
[Gm]The ashes of us
(Repeat previous chords with new verse and next chorus)
Where the orchid grows
There's a sunny place
Where I sip my tea
With the scarecrow's grace
Falling like feathers
Drifting like petals
Pieces of paper
The ashes of us
Break like bone china
Faces in mirrors
Piece us together
The ashes of us
(Middle - play each chord for a bar)
[Gm7] [Gm] [Gsus4] [Gm9]  
[Gm7] [Gm6]  
(Back to chorus chords repeat to fade)
