Key: G
Capo on 4th fret
I play this with the  
Capo on the 4th fret. I worked it out just messing around.  
I don't promise there are no mistakes, so feel free to leave corrections in the  
comments, but it does work to sing to, even if it isn't perfect.  


G                                Em 
Love, lay me down slay me with whispers 
D 
Reassure me that it's alright 
G                              Em 
I, I hit the deck, I hit rock bottom 
D 
But you saw me, then you caught me 
C                            Em     
Shining like a ray of hope swift like a turning sea 
D 
Angel to comfort me 
C 
Cradling my head in your hands 
D                   G           Em 
I looked up at the sun and the fog cleared,  
   D 
I saw you 

       C            D        G     Em 
And I want you and that's so terrifying 
       C           D       G        Em 
And I want you to help put out the fire 
Em 
Cause I am an island, you are the ocean 
               D       G           Em 
And all of my sadness taken by the sea 

G                              Em 
Fall, I took a fall. I took it easy 
D 
On the surface I was perfect 
G                                       Em 
But down, way down below, I started believing 
    D 
I deserved it. Was I worthless? 
C 
Sinking like a rescue boat 
Em 
Washing right over me 
D 
Vessel is struggling 
                             C 
Waving both my hands in the air 
          D            G 
Then the blindness of love 
           Em          D 
Then your arms all around me 

       C            D        G     Em 
And I want you and that's so terrifying 
       C           D       G        Em 
And I want you to help put out the fire 
Em 
Cause I am an island, you are the ocean 
               D       G           Em 
And all of my sadness taken by the sea 

C                         G 
And I want so much to believe 
C                              Em 
That I won't disappear in the water 
C                                               Em 
That I won't always be swimming against the tide 

       C            D        G     Em 
And I want you and that's so terrifying 
       C           D       G        Em 
And I want you to help put out the fire 
Em 
Cause I am an island, you are the ocean 
               D       G           Em 
And all of my sadness taken by the sea
