Intro: Am 

When the hills let go
Slowly fade into the water like some ancient lover
On a ship filled with ghosts
It's something to behold

When the paper thin girls
With twisting little braids in their hair,
They take off their coats and throw
Pebbles and stones from the side of the boat,
Crying out
            G                      Am
The stones they float, the stones they float
          F            G                          Am   
Oh my God, the stones they float, the stones they float

Down the burning ropes
Past the places where the steal beams meet concrete skies
You make your bed under the moonlight
I think it's time we said goodbye

Cause nothing moves in the warm air
And words that once would cut like a knife,
They just hang in the cloud and you're
Pushed by the lord,
But you're pulled by the crowds and
           G                 Am
You're overboard, you're overboard
          F          G                Am
Oh my God, she's overboard, she's overboard

Am                 G    F (last two strumming)
My love she's overboard
               Am G F (strumming)        
She's overboard
                         Am G F
My love she's over board

Some uuuhs and aaaaahs with Am G F

Not a shell unbroken
In the valley where my heartache and the timbers lay
It's not the time to be hanging around here
You know what some might say

That people get too reckless
That even with the simplest of crimes
They leave, blood behind,
     G                                      F
As I clean the knife for the very last time
       G                  Am
I think she knows, I think she knows
          F       G                   Am
Oh my God, I think she knows, I think she knows

I think she know

Uuuuhs and aAaahhs with Am G F
