[Verse 1]
G                 D/F#                  Em
...So as you canyoneered from our world upwards

And the angels took their place
G             D/F#           A
...I was the loser at your funeral

No emotion conveyed
G          D/F#          Em        
...It was drawn out in vain
                G
And the idiot I am just figured
        D/F#         A
In the wake of your leave

That I'd never hear from you again

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm               A      G
...And that I'd sing.......
                       Em
With all this feeling.......

That your spirit would afford me

[Chorus]
D
...My hand
D/C# 
...On heart
Bm                        A                  G
...It's not a thing that I've been dreaming of
       D/F#             Em
And it goes without my blessing
                       G
And leaves me in a rut...
        D/F#       Em    
But it comes and goes
                       G
And shows me all I'm missing
        D/F#      A
And it comes and goes

[Interlude]
D   Bm   D/F#   Bm   A

[Verse 2]
G                       D/F#            Em
...I was there at the backstage trying.....

But the words they never came
G              D/F#            A
...And I was available for a statement but I just
                     G
Hung my head in shame..
          D/F#      Em
It felt nothing to me
                       G
All the ceremony I'd wasted
               D/F#       A
And then I'd thank them leave

And say "God bless you all, goodnight"

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm         A      G
...Then I'd think.......
                        Em
The grave was turning......

And that nothing could absolve me

[Chorus]
D
...My hand
D/C#
...On heart
Bm                        A                  G
...It's not a thing that I've been dreaming of
        D/F#               Em
And it throws me without warning
                          G 
And leaves me in the dust..
        D/F#      Em
But it comes and goes
                       G
And fills me when I'm empty
         D/F#      A
Then it comes and goes
                                  
And I will need it when it's gone

[Bridge]
Bm
...It quakes
A
...And moves
G
...Then breaks
              Em
Then shatters over me....
     D/F#
In shapes of all these
 A     
Quiet sacred things I need

[Interlude]
Em   D/F#   A
..............

[Chorus]
D         
...My hand
D/C#
...On heart
Bm                         A                 G
...If there's a line or something in these songs
           D/F#          Em
That are worthy of some mention

You're free to let me know
G         D/F#        Em
...But it comes and grows
                       G
And leaves me in my weakness
        D/F#      A
And it comes and goes

[Chorus]
D
...My hand
D/C#
...On heart
Bm                         A                 G
...It's not a thing that I've been dreaming of
       D/F#               Em
And it goes without my blessing
                      G
And leaves me in a rut..
       D/F#       Em
But it comes and goes
                      G
And holds me when I'm sleepless
         D/F#      A
Then it comes and shows
                             
How I need you when you're gone
