Amber Eyes

Capo 4  – 6/8

[Verse 1]

Bm                              G

Once the honey sun kissed your amber eyes

         D                    A

And the heat from your hand melted mine

Em                   D

Asleep on the beach reading the waves

     Bm                A

And within one glance away you faded

[Bridge]

Em D Dmaj11 Dmaj7

[Verse 2]

      Bm                    G

Lying next to my clothes I play your guitar

D                  A

Warming your bed wondering where you are

Em                      D

Wait for the end of the lavender lie

Bm                                A

There you will find those Amber Eyes

[Bridge]

Em D Dmaj11 Dmaj7

[Chorus]

  E                   G

I want to feel it all again,

      F#m                             E

The force of the waves, heat of the sun

  E                         G

I want to see amber eyes again

      F#m                                           E        Em

The way your mouth curls when you’re smiling

[Verse 3]

      Bm                                    G

You gave me your book and you gave a goodbye

         D                          A

That’s all I have left from Amber eyes

   Em                         D

A thousand words in a glance you gave

Bm                       A

My shapeless voice away it faded

[Bridge]

Em D Dmaj11 Dmaj7

[Chorus]

  E                  G

I want to feel it all again,

      F#m                            

The force of the waves, heat of the sun

  E                         G

I want to see amber eyes again

      F#m                                           E     Em

The way your mouth curls when you’re smiling

Bm  C#m  D  A  G

Bm A  F#m  E  Em  Bm

[Verse 4]

    Bm                G

The feeling your eyes gave to mine

D                 A

Hides beneath the words I write

Em                        D

Sometimes I find them way down below

Bm              A

Dark and deep a tangle of shadows

Bridge:

Em D Dmaj11 Dmaj7

[Chorus]

  E               G

I want to feel it all again,

    F#m                 E

The force of the waves, heat of the sun

  E                 G

I want to see amber eyes again

    F#m                              E     Em

The way your mouth curls when you’re smiling

Mind Palace
{Verse 1}

  C#m E6       Amaj7

A poem like a wave, drifting off the page, now I’m home

C#m   E6   Amaj7

Coming from the lake, water with no wake, a whisper of

  C#m  E6       Amaj7

A gift of a dream at night, like a shiver down the spine, I saw 

    C#m E6         Amaj7

the end

[Verse 2]

Awoken by the wind, 

a summer’s slumber’s end, to the light

It finally made sense, 

when I found you on the edge, of the road

With a kiss from the fire at night, 

when the living come to life, I saw the dead

[Verse 3]

I’m a nowhere man,

 until I’m found again, in my mind

May this bright light be,

fortune for me and my mind

If thoughts like these won’t float,

they will fall on their own, light as air

Sirens

[Verse 1]

Dmaj7

Followed by the ocean, followed by the sea,

F#5     F#7sus4  F#m7   Dmaj7

Maybe if I go,    I will be free.

Dmaj7

Born in a meadow where I began to breathe,

F#5      F#7sus4  F#m7           Dmaj7

Pacing lightly,   grass up to my knee.

[Chorus]

      F#m7         F#7sus4  Dmaj7

I was caught by an omen’s   thrall

F#m7     F#7sus4  Em11     Dmaj7

I was held by the oceans    almighty call

[Verse 2]

Dmaj7

I’ve learnt to close my eyes so you will come to me

F#5       F#7sus4      F#m7       Dmaj7

I can be a child again, sit under my tree.

Dmaj7

Every night I think about how I’d like to leave

F#5     F#7sus4   F#m7         Dmaj7

Plotting down these waypoints here upon my sleeve.

[Chorus]

 F#m7         F#7sus4  Dmaj7

I was caught by an omen’s   thrall

F#m7     F#7sus4 Em11     Dmaj7

I was held by the oceans    almighty call

F#madd9 F#sus4 D#m7b5 Dmaj7

[Verse 3]

F#5       F#5 (F)        F#7sus4     F#7sus4 (D#)

Now I fly among the stars with one foot on the ground

F#5     F#7sus4 F#m7         Dmaj7

Near but far enough that I cannot be found.

F#5       F#5 (F)        F#7sus4     F#7sus4 (D#)

A riddle rather than reply was given back to me

F#5       F#7sus4   F#m7     Dmaj7

Held so very tightly   waiting for a breeze.

[Chorus]

 F#m7         F#7sus4  Dmaj7

I was caught by an omen’s   thrall

F#m7   F#7sus4 Em11     Dmaj7

I was held by the oceans    almighty call

[Verse 4]

Dmaj7

The past a foreign country now a place where I can be

F#5     F#7sus4 F#m7         Dmaj7

The end is moving closer like a drop upon a leaf.

Dmaj7

Now I follow oceans, now I follow seas,

F#5     F#7sus4   F#m7         Dmaj7

Now I hear the sirens calling out for me.
