Cm Fill   
     
Cm                      Gm    
Spring it came upon us, every insect filled the air    
F                                    Cm                        Fill    
Dropped their wings upon my brother, cast their shadows on his hair    
Cm                                  Gm    
If we follow where they're leading, We will surely come before    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
some unseen and wondrous magic, made of visions to explore    
     
     
F                                   Cm                      Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, was an old abandoned farm    
F                                Cm                        Cm7    
Every year we'd plant an orchid, in the shelter of it's arm    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
To protect us from the madness, of the future still to come    
Gm                            D#                            F    
It will be like this forever, I will keep you safe from harm

Cm                                 Gm    
Then they caught us in the summer, dressed in fathers finest clothes    
F                              Cm                         Fill    
You the hat he wore to market, I the jacket filled with holes    
Cm                                   Gm    
I've been searching all these hours, for a hand as pale as bone    
F                                       Cm                            Cm7    
That would keep the strongest sunlight, and reflect the brightest stone    
     
F                                   Cm                           Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, was a warm and fragrant smell    
F                             Cm                       Cm7    
Of the orchid we had planted, now a forest tall and well    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
What a statue to our greatness, what a story all will tell    
Gm                           D#                           F    
They'll remember us forever, they'll remember where we fell    
     
Bridge    
Cm Gm F Cm Fill    
     
Cm    
This old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders    
A#/D#    
Pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter    
F    
But still in the road, the traffic is silent    
Cm    
The people they stare, and then they turn violent    
D#    
If they should touch, the hem of your dress    
Cm    
I would rise like a lion, strike out again    
D#    
The faithful they wait, the faithful they wait    
A#/D#    
By the sign    
     
F                                   Cm                         Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, came a loud and joyous sound    
F                                Cm                             Cm7    
As the earth and all her beauty, picked us up from off the ground    
F                                Cm                     Cm7    
Carried far across the mountain, to a kingdom never bound    
Gm                              D#                F    
We will live like this forever, I will love you, I will love you
