I wanted to keep the same feel as the Open Session so I used some deep chords. I also 
pluck the first half the song and strum the second half. This song has a lot of 
flexibility, this is simply my favorite way of playing it solo on an acoustic guitar. Enjoy!

Five days
Near your island
Off the coast


Five ways
You were my lover
Of the tide

In rhyme

Eb               F
Oh, all in the glow I'll find you waiting
Eb              F        Gm
Oh, has it been so long now, I
Eb                   F        Gm    Bb
Oh, I thought you knew that I'd be coming
     Cm9                                    F
The way you move, the foreign groove, at night

I could never
I could never hold you

Eb-Dm7 (1x)

Eb                                         Dm7
     Watch it rise up, where you hide your pearls
Eb                                         Dm7
     Feel it pile up, where you cast those stones you wear
              Cm9            Bb                  Cm9
When no one's home, do they feel cold on your bones
          Bb                   Cm9         Bb
All the years I've missed your warmth,
                 Unknown Name
Have you missed my warmth?
                Eb                 Dm7
On your island
