I went over the last version and corrected all the mistakes. I'm not very good at this,
so somebody else could probably do a better job. It's played in ordinary tuning I think,
however in the first chords i put up I assumed it was in half step down. This is because
Radical Face's guitar is always a half step down. I realised my stupidity when I
remembered that this song is played on a piano.
The Bm and A are played in quick succession, like the chords on the piano in the song.
If you choose you could fingerpick the D to make it more like the actual song.
all the trees stood like skeletons
silhouettes of spilled ink
and the snows fell in sheets and got wrapped around our feet
we built the fire evermore with winter beating at the door
brother's eyes were getting heavier
his bony hands cold and white
and I could hear his ragged breathing like the wind along a knife
there beside him through the night, in the hum of candlelight
I no longer felt the time
brother woke just after midnight
and he didn't make a sound
and as he climbed from out of bed with severed rings around his head
his feet didn't touch the ground
I could feel it then
a tiny miracle
so I followed him
into the woods
crossed beneath the trees
but only I left my prints in tow
he was afloat
found a lonely tree
and tied himself within its limbs
and he said to me these words:
"don't you fear for me,
I am where I'm supposed to be."
and when I woke he was gone
and I was wrapped in blankets on the lawn
the sky was blue and my skin matched the hue
and I could hear mother crying in your room
Finish on D.
