 Walk this world
 ---------------

            Em               Em+7           Em7              A      *
     I have slept beside the winter and the green is growing slow
            Em                   Em+7   Em7           A
     I have watched you find the places hidden by the snow
            C                             B
     I have tripped into a valley that is blue till you can see
                   Em   A                    Em
     I want you to come walk this world with me


     Note: (*) Alt:  Em   Em/D#   Em/D   A.

              G           C    D             Em
     With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
     G         C      D             Em
     Holding on and on to what we believe
  C                          B
     I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
                   Em   A                    Em
     I want you to come walk this world with me


     
     And I'm sucked in by the wonder and I'm fucked up by the lies
     And I dig a hole to lie in and I build some wings to fly
     And I think that I could love you 'cause you know how to be free
     I want you to come walk this world with me
     
     With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
     Holding on and on 'til we believe
     With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
     I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
     I want you to come, I want you to come
     I want you to come walk this world with me
     
     And it's burning in our fingers and it's burning on the road
     And I like the way you're broken and I'll like you when you're old
     And I see you in the garden and I feel you plant the seed
     I want you to come walk this world with me
     
     With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
     Holding on and on 'til we believe
     With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
     I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
     I want you to come, I want you to come
     I want you to come walk this world with me

     Dm             A#                  C
     Fall for me, my southern cross, my star
     Dm                A#                C
     Shine for me when love has gone too far
     Dm           A#         C
     I've got you belly-deep in me

     Just a little breath on the water is all we need
                   Dm               G         A#
     Just a little strenght in our hearts -
                C      Dm     G    A# 
     enough to heal
                C      Dm     G    A#    C
     Enough to heal
     


     Dig me out, can't leave this love for dead
     Hand to mouth we're picking up the thread
     I've got you belly-deep in me
     
     Just a little breath on the water now is all we need
     Just a little strenght in our hearts
     enough to heal
     Enough to heal
     

  Em           A#  C
     And the sea   glistens
  Em             A# C
     And the waves  pull us in
  Em                 A# C
     There's something  rising up and up
  Em                 A# C

     
     Just a little breath on the water now
     Just a little strenght in our hearts
     enough to heal
     Enough to heal

 Note: (*) Am picked with the B string left open.

  Am                             C             G
     There are parts of me he'll never know,
  Am                       C              G
     my wild horses and my river beds,
  Am                 C G             Am          C     G
     and in my throat   voices he'll never hear.
  Am               C G       Am           C     G
     He pulls at me   like a cherry tree,
               Am         C      G     Am              C     G
     and I can still move, but I don't speak about it.
  Am                  C G Am                  C    G
     Pretend I'm crazy,     pretend I'm dead.
  Am                   C         G  Am                   C    G
     He's to scared to hit me now  -  he'll bring flowers instead.

     Am               G  Am                    G    
     I need an island,   somewhere to sink a stone
     Am               G  F
     I need an island,   somewhere to bury you,
  G               Am
     somewhere to go
     

     And the dogwoods shimmer in October sun,
     "oh sweet thing" he sings to me,
     "you're the only one."
     
     I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
     I need an island, somewhere to bury you,
     somewhere
     I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
     I need an island, somewhere to bury you,
                       F    G
     somewhere to go.

  Am   G   F   G
  Am   G   F   G
     
     And I don't know why I can't tell my sister,
     he spat in my face again, and I don't want to die here.
     You know that dream when your feet won't move,
     you want to come but your body won't let you.
     He steals it from me.
     He steals it from me.
     It shines like sweat, like jewels,
     like something that has died to soon.
     He fucks with the beauty.
     A kiss, a kick, a kiss, a kick, a kiss kiss kick.
     He steals it from me.
     It's out of my hands again.
     
     I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
     I need an island, somewhere to bury you,
     somewhere to go, to go......
     

 Throwing fire at the sun
 ------------------------
  
  Fm                                 C
     I think of Venus sinking down into the sea.
  Fm                                C
     And what it is to be alone and have nothing.
  Fm                                         C
     I don't know why you want to leave this space between.
           Fm                     C
     Is it easier to be alone and have nothing?

  A#m               Fm
     You and me and everyone.
  A#m                     Fm
     Throwing fire at the sun.

     
     I put my hands up, lay my weapons down.
     I know that I was stupid, I was wrong.
     
     You and me and everyone.
     Throwing fire at the sun.
     
          C
     If I listen there's something deeper that speaks.
           C
     If we reach out maybe we could make a little peace.
     

     You and me and everyone.
     Throwing fire at the sun.
     
     Remember stealing oranges and how they bled.
     And you're the one who showed me how to touch myself.
     
     You and me and everyone.
     Throwing fire at the sun.
     
     Blood is a river, ties you to me.
     Blood is a river, ties everyone.
     Blood is a river, ties you to me.
     Blood is a river ties everyone.

     Something I feel

     You are an angel  or maybe you could've been

     Something out here
  Bm                  D   F         G        A
     You are an angel  or maybe you could've been

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nova_heather/oyster_album_crd.html ]
     I've got this light hangs over me
     I've got this fear cuts into me
     And I can't see very far
     And when you said that you were dead I hung on
     
     Something I feel
     You are an angel, or maybe you could've been
     Something out here
     You are an angel or maybe you could've been
     
     See how they run
     And nobody said you would go
     See how they fall
     And I can't see very far
     And when you said you were dead I hung on
     
     Something I feel
     You are an angel, or maybe you could've been
     Something out here
     You are an angel or maybe you could've been
     See how they run
     See how they run
     All the same, all the same
     Something out here
     You are an angel.


 Truth and bone
 --------------

  D           A/Db          Bm  G                     D
     Sometime I can feel you    breathing into me.
  D                  A/Db           Bm  G             D
     And these hands I can feel them    tugging at my sleeve,
  D        A               Em                        D
     I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
  D               A           Em                G             D
     I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.

     
  D            A         Bm         G
     All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down.
  D            A         Bm         G
     All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.
     

     My mouth is full of secrets I'm too afraid to tell.
     My body's full of longing for you to know me well.
     I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
     I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to thruth and bone.
     
     All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
     All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.
     
     I think of sinking in way over my shoulders,
     let the water, the water take me in and I
     need you to cut through to where I'm hidden,
     I'm awkward and I'm too polite and I want
     two stars for arms like orion I could
     breathe in and breathe in and breathe out.
     If I could only lose myself
     I would lose myself in you,
     I move trough the day in the rhythms that I've known.
     I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.
     
     All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
     All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.
     

 Blue Black

     Eat your words, eat your heart out
     Eat your words, eat your heart out

  D                        Dsus4 D                  Dsus4
     There's not much left,       just my red dress
  Bm                   Em         A
     just this feeling    that I got
  D                      Dsus4 D                          Dsus4
     You made me a victim       in your Christmas kitchen
  Bm                Em            A
     it's my memory    it's your loss
     

  D              F#m              G
     Bleu black,    maybe you got something
               A           D
     but the flowers grew back


     And was it familiar when you toched my sister
     God, I don't think there's a word for that
     
     Blue black, maybe you got something
     but the flowers grew black
     
     I gave it away, whore for a day
     It's so ugly, I'm still breathing
     But you never got my virgin heart
     It stayed locked up, it's still beating
     
     Blue black, maybe you got something
     but the flowers grew black
     
  D                 Dsus4 D               Dsus4
     Eat your words,       eat your hat
  D                 Dsus4 D                   Dsus4
     Eat your words,       eat your heart out
     
     I never felt so clean, you did the sin supreme
     You never had a clue, you can't take it with you
     I never felt so clean, you did the sin supreme
     You never had a clue, you can't take it with you.

     The bones they buried
     will feed the trees
     but every word you ever spoke
     is still in me.
     
     And couldI be walking higher,
     could I be right beside her?
     
     And I will feel for you in the music.
     And I will send that river home.
     And I will cry for you sometimes
     when the night is down.
     And I raise my head up to the mountains,
     talk to the birds and I fly
     'cause the spirit lives on,
     when the body dies.
     
     And could I be walking higher,
     could I be right beside her?
     Could I be walking higher
     Could I be right beside her?

     light years, light years.
     

     No paper, no ring
     in the trees where frogs sing.
     I brought lilies for you,
     think of all the things were gonna do.
     
     Now, now that you're here,
     stay with me light years.

     I give you a thousand hours,
  F#                    A#
     making love in the tall sunflowers.
  F#              A#
     I give you a thousand feet
  F#                A#
     down where the water's deep.

     Sleepy storm, sleepy head,
     Limb for limb on my bed.
     
     Now, now that you're here,
     stay with me light years,
     light years, light years,
     light years, stay with me,
     stay with me, stay.

  C             B                Em
     It gets inside you like the sun,
  C                B                Em
     it makes you wet just like the rain.
  C                B             Em
     It makes you sound so sentimental,
  C          B              Em
     it's a lovely kind of pain.

     I used to dream,
  E C          A
     I used to dream about Verona.
  E C          A
     I used to dream, to dream,
  E C          A
     I used to dream about Verona.

     
     And if there ever was an earthquake,
     I'd go down in the earth with you.
     And if there ever was an avalanche,
     I'd landslide down with you.

     I used to dream,
     I used to dream about Verona.
     I used to dream,
     I used to lean over the side of the boat
     and get hypnotized by the water and dream.
     

          C                    B      C     B
     It's up in the trees it's up to me.
          C                B       C     B
     It's out of the blue, out to you.
     

     I used to dream,
     I used to dream about Verona.
     
     Yeah Romeo you are priceless, lifeless,
     skipping star to scar to star.
     I used to dream you'd be
     slipping, slipping from me.
     Burning, breating, breathing,
     sleeping, in me.
     I used to lean over the side of the boat
     and get hypnotized by the water and dream.
     Slipping, slipping, slipping,
     slipping from me.
     Burning, burning, breathing,
     sleeping in me.
     

 Doubled Up
 ----------

  D  Dsus4    A      D     Dsus4    A
     I saw a mountain from higher above.
  D  Dsus4       A             D        Dsus4  A
     I held your hand and I was doubled up in love.
     
  G            A      D           Bm
     Big sky above me, a river inside me
         G  A              D      Dsus4
     and I'm doubled up in love.

     
     You're watching your step but you fall as you're walking.
     You take it in stride but still you fall as you're walking.
     

  G            A      D           Bm
     Big sky above me, a river inside me
         G  A              F#m
     and I'm doubled up in love.
     

  F#m                            Bm
     Feels good it feels like poetry

     don't ask me to explain it just
  F#m                    G
     feels good, like poetry,
  A                   D     Dsus4  D  Dsus4  A
     I'm doubled up again.
     

  A              D    Dsus4   A
     Look at the sky,
  D           Dsus4   A
     lift off like an aeroplane,
  D            Dsus4       A
     watch the ground come up to meet you.
     

     Big sky above me, a river inside me
     and I'm doubled up in love.
     
     Feels good, it feels like poetry,
     don't ask me to explain it just
     feels good, like poetry.
     I'm doubled up again.
