Intro:
G D Em C x2

Chorus:
                G                      D
If you were a stone then I'd be the rain
          Em                      C
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
               G                     D
If you were a tree then I'd be the earth
            Em                     C
Clutching your roots as you reach skyward


Verse 1:
G                D
I am a metaphor for all the things I couldn't say
Em                              C
    It's never easy, then it hurts
G                         D
Like scratching diamonds I have tried to find my way to you
Em                                 C 
    But we're both moving in reverse

Pre Chorus:
G                                  D
 I wish that we could both find a simple way just to make it by
Em                                      C
Right now I'm alright if you're just fine

Chorus

Some nights you're a photograph fading in my memory
Some days I feel you on my skin
We're trading silence
There are words that seem to steal our breath
And I just dream about your lips

Pre Chorus

Chorus

Chorus 2:
                   G
We'd count the stars
                     D
My hands in your leaves
                    Em                        C
And I'd hold my breath 'til we both fell asleep
                 G                    D
If you were a stone then I'd be the rain,
              Em                      C
Turn you to sand as the time slips away

Bridge:  (Mute chords early on)
G
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for…
D
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for…
Em                                         C
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for you

G
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for…
D
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for…
Em                                         C
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for you 

Chorus

Outro:
                 G                     D
If you were a stone then I'd be the rain,
               Em                    C   (End on C)
Turn you to sand as the time slips away
