 LYRICS, CHORDS, & SEQUENCE of PARTS (see below for chord durations)--
  
 INTRO
 VERSE 1:
 Bm@          A@          G5                   Em7
     Perfect water - the dark wind braids the waves--
        D/F#      G5    D    b    C9   a   Bm@             (Bm@)
     The  crazed birds raid the trees--        Is this our destiny?
         E        A$   D/9/A   E          A$    D/9/A  
     To join our hands   at   sea-- and slow  -  ly
      E          A$    D/9/A    E    A$   D/9/A
     sink, and slow  -  ly    think:
       G5            (G5)   [1 1/2-measure chord tacit; ->Em9]
     This is perfect water, passing over me--
  
 INTRO
 VERSE 2:
 Bm@              A@              G5                        Em7  D/F#  G5
     Do you know Jacques Cousteau?   Well, they said on the radi  -  o
              D          b   C/9      a   Bm                (Bm)
     That he hears bells in random order,  deep beneath the perfect water--
      E   A$    D/9/A     E          A$    D/9/A   
     Love       that is frightening,
           E   A$    D/9/A    E      A$    D/9/A
     but still        so   inviting--
          E                    A$    D/9/A       E         A$    D/9/A
     To drown {drown-drown} inside a sound that lay so far underground,
              E                            A$          D/9/A
     And to think--{and to think} And to think {and to think}:
       G5            (G5)   [2-measure chord tacit]
     This is perfect water, passing over me.
  
 LEAD TACIT: ||: A%  B   C#m :|| Em9]
  
 VERSE 3:
 Bm@          A@        G5                 Em7     D/F#     G5   D
     Perfect water-- I dream this dream within the     deep and warm 
          b      C/9
         Gulf Stream,
             E   A$      D/9/A  E            A$        D/9/A
     Where two blocks of ice   melt into my hands like dice,
            E            A$          D/9/A         E          A$    D/9/A
     And I roll {seven} seven on the floor of the sea  {seven}--
            E            A$          D/9/A         E          A$    D/9/A
     And I roll {seven} seven on the floor of the sea  {seven}--
            G5              (G5)   [1 1/2-measure chord tacit]
     And I feel the perfect water, washing over me--
   A@  G5  (G5)  [2-measure chord tacit]
  
 CHORUS [as above, then]:
    A%   B  C#m       A%   B  C#m
 A life!         A strange!
    A%   B  C#m       A%   B  C#m
 A life!         A strange!
  
 LEAD TACIT: ||: A%  B   C#m :||to E chord
                4  1 2 3 4
  
  ** 1st Verse: "steal" last 2 beats for Em9 segue to 2nd verse
  
  ** 3rd Verse: replace 2-measure tacit with the following--
    [1 1/2-measure chord tacit]      A@
      1   2   3   4   1   2          3  4
  
     G5      (G5)  [hold 2 measures]    [2-measure chord tacit]
     1 2 3 4==1 2 3 4                     (1 2 3 4  1 2 3 4)
  
 ["triplet" chords (Em7-D/F#-G5) are guesses that "fit," but are open
     to question: after 4 or 5 days of tryin', decided to get on with
     my life!]
  
 LEAD TACIT/CHORUS:
 ||: A%   B       C#m                :||(# of repeats varies: see lyrics)
     1  2 & 3 &  4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
     /  / /   /    /    /   /   / / / [1st ending:
 G5      (G5)   [hold 2 measures]    [1 1/2-measure chord tacit]->Em9 riff
 1 2 3 4==1 2 3 4                     (1  2  3  4  1  2)          3 & 4
  
 -->2nd ending:
 G5      (G5)   [hold 2 measures]     [1 1/2-measure chord tacit; ritard.]
 1 2 3 4==1 2 3 4                      (1  2  3  4  1  2)
  
 A$ [hold]    Bm$ [hold]
 3 4         1234->fermata...
  
                               [Geez, I might as well have tabbed it. . . .]
