                Note that it sounds like she's playing with 7s and 9s.  I didn't necessarily write them in. =/


Verse 1:
               Em7 (or 9)
I just spoke silence with the seeker next to me
               Am9
She had a heart with hesitant, halting speech
                Em7                                      Am9
That turned to mine and asked belligerently, "What do I live for?"
           Em7
I see the scars of searches everywhere I go
               Am9
              Em7   
There's a question like a shame no one will show,
            Am9
"What do I live for?"

       C
We are Hosea's wife
       D
We are squandering this life
      Em                                 A
Using people like ladders and words like knives


Chorus:
                 C
If we've eyes to see
                 Em
If we've ears to hear
                  D                                     Am
To find it in our hearts and mouths, the word that saves is near
                  C
Shed that shallow skin
              Em
Come and live again
                     D
Leave all you were before
                   Am9
To believe is to begin


Verse 2:
           Em7
There is a truth in little corners of our lives
            Am9
There are hints of it in songs and childrens' eyes
       Em7
It's familiar, like an ancient lullaby
           Am9
What do I live for?

       C
We are Hosea's wife
       D
We are squandering this life
      Em                               A
Using Bodies like money and truth like lies


Chorus:
                 C
If we've eyes to see
                 Em
If we've ears to hear
                  D                                     Am
To find it in our hearts and mouths, the word that saves is near
                  C
Shed that shallow skin
              Em
Come and live again
                     D
Leave all you were before
                   Am
To believe is to begin



Bridge:
                     Em
We are more than dust
        C
That means something
          A
That means something
Am                 Em
We are more than just
            C                  A
blood and emotions, inklings and notions,
     D          B7
atoms on oceans

       C
We are Hosea's wife
       D
We are squandering this life
      Em                                       A
Using people like ladders and words like knives


Chorus (2X):
                 C
If we've eyes to see
                 Em
If we've ears to hear
                  D                                     Am
To find it in our hearts and mouths, the word that saves is near
                  C
Shed that shallow skin
              Em
Come and live again
                     D
Leave all you were before
                   Am
To believe is to begin



Em    D           C
To believe is to begin
Em    D           C
To believe is to begin
Em    D           C
To believe is to begin




Hope it sounds good you : )
