[Verse I]
A                           A
 Oh lord, won't you leave me
                   F
Leave me on my knees?
                               G
Cause I belong to the ground now
                      A
And it belongs to thee
                               A
And oh lord, won't you leave me
                       F
Leave me just like this?
                               G
Cause I belong to the ground now
                        A
I want no more than this
                         A
How I long for the autumn
                         F
The sun keeps burning deep
                        G
Every stone in this city keeps reminding me of ya
A                  A
 Can you protect me
 
from what I want?
    F                 G
The love I let in, it left me so lost
[Chorus] ***I decided to use A G F G instead of A G F D because for me, it sounds better when played and sung on the acoustic guitar. If you don't like it, just replace the second G with a D chord A G F Mother, make me G Make me a big tall tree A G F G So I can shed my leaves and let it blow through me A G F Mother, make me G Make me a big grey cloud A G F A A F G So I can rain on you things I can't say out loud
[Verse II] A A All these couples are kissing F And I can't stand the heat G I lost my shoes and left the party A I wander in the street A I put my feet into the fountain F The statues all asleep G No use wishing on the water It grants you no relief [Chorus] A G F Mother, make me G Make me a bird of prey A G F G So I can rise above this, let it fall away A G F Mother, make me G Make me a song so sweet A G F A A F G Heaven trembles, fallen at our feet [Repeat Verse I]
