Death Cab For Cutie
A                      C#m                     D    F#m
The atlantic was born today and I'll tell you how:
A                      C#m              D    F#m E
The clouds above opened up and let it out.
      A                             C#m                    
I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
          D                 F#m   E
When the water filled every hole.
    A                                 C#m                           
And thousands upon thousands made an ocean, 
                     D                F#m E
Making islands where no island should go.

Oh no.

A                      C#m                     D           F#m
Those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats.
A                         C#m                  D           F#m 
I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.

    A                               C#m                          
The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flood lands to your door have been 
D                F#m
Silenced forever more.
    A                                 C#m
The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
         D                 F#m    E
It seems farther than ever before

Oh no.
