[Intro x2 :]
Am C D Am7

[Verse 1 :]
    Am
The Forest awakes
    C
The desert at dawn
  D
A mountain at night
        Am7
And the rhythm moves on

    Am
The people awake
        C
They're marching along
    D
The streets are alive
      Am7
With a terrible song

[Chorus :]
Am          G            C      D
Forward and backwards in every direction
    C        D      G
The atoms' perpetual motion
    Am          G            C            D
The shifting of light on the banks of the river
    C            D          G
I'm free, but I'm keeping my clothes on

[Instrumental :] Am C D Am7

[Verse 2 :]
    Am
I'm marching along
    C
The street where you live
    D
I'm calling your name
    Am7
The song is a gift

    Am
The song is a road
    C
The road is a face
  D
A face is a time
      Am7
And a time is place

[Chorus :]
  Am        G        C          D
A place of relief in a time of confusion
  C          D      G
A heart is a simple equation

With beautiful words and with beautiful people
  C        D          G
A song is a face, is a mountain

G D Em7 Am

[Bridge :]
Am
A fruit that falls before it's grown
G
I heard a sound and a bird has flown
Am          G      C        D
It breaks to pieces above the forest
Am        G        C      D
A million particles born today

Am Am

Bm
Out beyond the blue horizon
Bm
Air cannot escape
      F#m
Underneath the weeping willow
      F#m
I can see your face

      D#
Free - form calling all over me
      D#
Creatures great and small
F
Doctors pulling them out of you
F
Hideous, virtuous, both of us

      F#m
Come in my kitchen
      F#m
When it rains outside
      G#m
Sweet inspiration
      G#m
Sneaks up from behind

[Instrumental :]
E ^ ^ ^

[Verse 3 :]
    Am
The forest is true
  C
I know for a fact
        D
That the bigger the front
        Am7
Then the bigger the back

  Am
My heart beating still
            C
Through the perilous night
    D
The bombs burst in the air
      Am7
But my hair is alright

[Chorus :]
    Am          G            C            D
The shifting of light on the trees and the houses
  C            D        G
I drowned in an ocean of perfume
    Am            G              C            D
The strangeness of words, how the meaning keeps changing
    C          D          G
But somehow the beauty will find you

[Outro x3 :]
Am G C D C D G
