Capo 3rd fret

[intro]  E | Bm | G | D (x6)

[verse]  E | Bm | G | D (x4)

Of all the churning random hearts under the sun
Eventually fading into night,
These two are opening now as we lie,
I touch you under full a light.

[verse]  E | Bm | G | D (x4)

Girl, if you're a seascape I'm a listing boat,
for the thing carries every hope.
I invest in a single lie.
The choice is yours to be loved
Come away from an emptier boat.

[chorus]  G | B | E | D (x2) | A

'Cause when the dead moon rises again
Be no time to stall or protocol to hem us in
And when the dog slides underneath a train,
There's no cry, no use to searching for the mutt's remains
Throw all consequence aside
And a cheerless pyre we will set alight

[verse]  E | Bm | G | D (x4)

Of all the intersecting lines in the sand
I routed a labyrinth to your lap.
I never used a map
sliding off the land on an incidental tide,
And along the way you know, they try, they try.

[verse]  E | Bm | G | D (x4)

And we got sea legs
And we're off tonight
They can't have that to which they've no right?
You belong to a simpler time
I'm a victim to the impact of these words, And this rhyme.

[chorus]  G | B | E | D (x2) | A

'Cause when that dead moon rises again
There'll be no time to stall or protocol to hem us in
Darling, when the dog slides--open the door and where's she go?
There's no time, no use to searching for the must remains.
Throw consequence aside
And a cheerless pyre we will set alight

[outro]  Em | Bm (repeat)
