Passion Pit
[Verse 1]

Dm         Am               A#       F
My brother taught me how to swim
Gm         A#          F                C
We treaded water underneath the ocean's skin
Dm          Am             A#     F
And then he washed away my sins
Gm         A#            F               C
He held me closer as the tide was coming in

[Pre-Chorus]

(note in case this is confusing at all, the Am, E/Dm(Dm with an E in the base), and C chords are
all transition chords, so you play them two beats before the next chord. The rest of the chords play with 
6 beats)

         A#             Am Gm
But then why, what could I say?
      C       Dm      E/Dm F
What would it mean?
C          A#       Am Gm
Cause then I, I'd give away
         C     Dm      E/Dm F      C
All the love I need

[Chorus]

A#
Just a child, always waiting
C
All along he elevated
Dm
He stayed put while I was wandering
F
Gone so long he started wondering
A#  Am Gm  C
Why,       I got lost

[Verse 2]

Dm         Am               A#      F
My brother taught me how to give
Gm             A#            F             C
He spreads his love until it stretches too thin
Dm       Am            A#      F
Oh how I wanna be like him
Gm        A#               F                     C
He takes away the weight before your heart gives in

[Pre-Chorus]

         A#             Am Gm
But then why, what could I say?
     C        Dm      E/Dm F
What would it mean?
C          A#       Am Gm
Cause then I, I'd give away
         C     Dm      E/Dm F      C
All the love I need

[Chorus]

A#
Just a child, always waiting
C
All along he elevated
Dm
He stayed put while I was wandering
F
Gone so long he started wondering
A#  Am Gm  C     A#       C    
Why,       I got lost

[Bridge]

      A#       C
I got lost
      A#
I got lost
                             C
If I love the way my brother loves (I got lost)
Dm                          E/Dm F           C
None of it would happen like the way that it was

[Outro]

A#     C      A#     C
