Islands Chords

That's my cover of this amazing song by Young the Giant and these are the exact chords I
used. I tried to keep that same open the session feeling it had.

I know that in my cover, the strumming rhythm I use for the last half of the song is
different than the rhythm in the orignial version but that's because in one part, I could
play that rhythm and sing at the same aaaand it's also easier that way xD. Well I hope 
this helps anyone! :)

Five days
Near your island
Off the coast

Five ways
You were my lover
Of the tide

In rhyme
[ Tab from: ]
C               D
Oh, all in the glow I'll find you waiting
C              D        Em
Oh, has it been so long now, I
C                   D        Em    G
Oh, I thought you knew that I'd be coming
     Am7                                    D
The way you move, the foreign groove, at night

I could never
I could never hold you

C-Bm7 (1x)

C                                         Bm7
     Watch it rise up, where you hide your pearls
C                                         Bm7
     Feel it pile up, where you cast those stones you wear
              Am7            G                  *Am7
When no one's home, do they feel cold on your bones
          G                   *Am7         G
All the years I've missed your warmth,
Have you missed my warmth?
                C                 Bm7
On your island

C   Bm7  (repeat as many times as you want, depending if you want to add the ohh and
ahhs :P)
