Intro G

I became awake,

C                G      C              G     C                   G
From a very dark place, a patchwork of fear, of poorly conceived ideas.
C                G       C                   G
With a blister of water, the mark of working hands,
Ready to catch, or cut.
The senses aligned, the animal urgency, and voices picked up,
Flowing over the static, late, quiet.
[ Tab from: ]
Em   D      C      G
OhhH Layyyd aheeee a heee

I became awake.
C           G(Same throughout)
Fingers are open, eyes they are open, the firing if images, an orchestra of scribbles.
The guts of an engine, the veins of a leaf, light onto paper, exposed.
A filament in a bulb, up above or in the ground.
Together we are magic, together we are dreaming, together we reach enlessly,
The centre of a seed, so full of possibilities.

I became awake.
I thought I was sleeping, but I was only forming a structure with no ceiling,
With words like a runway, a cloud of a person drifting away.
I was heavy, but now I am light.
I was heavy, but now I am light
