Hosea's Wife  Brooke Fraser

Verse
I just spoke si[Em]lence with the seeker next to me
She had a heart[Em] with hesitant, halting speech
That turned to m[Em]ine and asked belligerently, "What do I [Em]live for?"
[Em]I see the scars of searches everywhere I go
[Em]From hearts to wars to literature to radio
[Em]There's a question like a shame no one will show, "What do I [C]live for?"
Pre-Chorus
We are [C]Hosea's wife
We are [D]squandering this life
Using [Em]people like ladders and words like [D]knives
Chorus
If we've eyes to [C]see
If we've ears to [Em]hear
To find it in our [D]hearts and mouths, the word that saves[Am] is near
Shed that shallow [C]skin
Come and live [Em]again
Leave all you were be[D]fore
To believe is to be[Am]gin
Verse
[Em]There is a truth in little corners of our lives
[Em]There are hints of it in songs and childrens' eyes
[Em]It's familiar, like an ancient lullaby
What do I [C]live for?
Pre-Chorus
We are [C]Hosea's wife
We are [D]squandering this life
Using [Em]Bodies like money and truth like [D]lies
Chorus
If we've eyes to [C]see
If we've ears to [Em]hear
To find it in our [D]hearts and mouths, the word that saves[Am] is near
Shed that shallow [C]skin
Come and live [Em]again
Leave all you were be[D]fore
To believe is to be[Am]gin
Bridge
[D]We are more than [Em]dust
That [C]means something
That means [D]something
[D]We are more than j[Em]ust blood and [C]emotions, inklings [D]and notions, atoms on
oceans
Pre-Chorus
We are [C]Hosea's wife
We are [D]squandering this life
Using [Em]people like ladders and words like [D]knives
Chorus x 2
If we've eyes to [C]see
If we've ears to [Em]hear
To find it in our [D]hearts and mouths, the word that saves[Am] is near
Shed that shallow [C]skin
Come and live [Em]again
Leave all you were be[D]fore
To believe is to be[Am]gin
(for last time chorus, last line)
[C]To be[D]lieve is to [Am]begin
[C]To be[D]lieve is to [Am]begin
[C]To be[D]lieve is to [C]begin
