Intro (with harmonica): 
Am G Am G Am - Fmaj C G Am x2

G         Am    G            Am
I heard a sound when I was a child
Fmaj        C                   G           Am
someone was walking through the pillow that night
    G    Am        G        Am
the snow muted the pitch of night
Fmaj     C                     G        Am
a shadow approached across the field in white
G         Am G         Am
it's only me it's only me 
        Fmaj            C        G        Am
and the sound of my own heart it startled me
G     Am              G    Am
as I drifted from the dark room 
Fmaj C                G    Am
face lifted from the paper moon
G         Am     G     Am
reflected in the orbit bath 
Fmaj          C             G         F
he manages to say before he starts to laugh
E                F         E                Dm  
you can't always trust the darkness and the dust
Esus4       E    F             G              C 
but me I'm just a man it's more than I can understand
     G    C  G        C
it's only me its only me
 Fmaj        C        G        Am

G         Am    G     Am
The white noise falls away 
Fmaj    C     G       Am
to reveal the perfect day
G           Am           G      Am
where roses bloomed out of thin air 
Fmaj        C                G      Am
and music rose from down the buried stairs
G         Am   G         Am
it's only mine it's only mine 
Fmaj              C             G            Am
I grew it in the shade when the sun couldn't shine
G                  Am      G              Am
now there's always someone waiting at the mirror
Fmaj                C        G                 Am
she stares like she knows me like a headlights deer
G             Am          G     Am
and there's a twin in the other room
Fmaj         C         G                     F
she's always sowing and singing her songs of doom
E                F         E                  Dm 
and at times I don't know why tears come to my eyes
Esus4       E    F             G              Am      
and what if I go blind as they flow out of my mind
G          C  G          C
it worries me it worries me
Fmaj         C             G           F
that there's someone on my mind that I don't see

F                  C                  F               C
I close my eyes to disappear into the fields of stars between my ears
F                G          F           C           G        F     E
the dark as they overlap we follow one another as we fade to black
F    E   Dm   Esus4   E

F C G C   G     C     G         C    F C G C
      it's only night it's only night

G         Am    G            Am
An ultrasound when I was alive 
Fmaj        C                G           Am
the shadows go spying on the ones in the wild
G              Am    G         Am
they dip their arrows into the sea
Fmaj      C                G        Am
they wash their arms as they wait for me
G             Am     G         Am
they wait for me they wait for me
G            Am    G         Am
hey wait for me hey wait for me
