Key: C
     C               G 
Your mouth, it is an ocean 
         F                Am 
But your eyes, they are a storm 
           C                 G 
And though not a word's been spoken 
  F      G         C 
I feel I have been warned 

              C               G 
For there's a cardinal in the dogwood 
          F            Am 
There's a raven in the air 
         C                   G 
But this ballroom is full of vultures 
            F    G        C 
Why would I ever meet you there 

             F               C                  
That kind of laughter brings uneasiness 
     F              C 
Like teardrops on a summer dress 
          F              C 
Like that little lie you won't confess 
       G 
Left a buzzin' in your spine 
      F             C 
So forgive me if my heads a mess 
         F                  C 
Or if my cadence lacks some confidence 
         F               C 
I'm just leaning on that splintered fence 
          G                   C 
Wondering what's on the other side 

C G F Am  
C G F G C 

          C                   G 
So if the trumpets sound like trouble 
        F                 Am 
And the cello sounds like tears 
            C        G 
Then why is everybody talking 
           F       G        C 
With their fingers in their ears 

           C                 G 
'Cause the drums are distant gunfire 
        F                Am 
And the voices shattered hearts 
        C            G 
But the harmony like honey 
        F       G       C 
Sweetly binds us at the start 

             F               C                  
That kind of laughter brings uneasiness 
     F              C 
Like teardrops on a summer dress 
          F              C 
Like that little lie you won't confess 
       G 
Left a buzzin' in your spine 
   F                C 
So forgive me if my heads a mess 
          F               C 
Or if I'm just not making any sense 
        F                 C 
I'm just climbing up that splintered fence 
         G                Am  F  G 
Tryin to get to the other side 
             Am  F  G  C 
To the other side
