VERSE 1:
                G    F#m 
When we were together    
                Bm Bm/A G
I lay in your river
        G           A        Bm   Bm/A Bm
As the fish swam through my hands
               G    F#m 
Raindrops and roses 
                Bm   Bm/A G
fell from the heavens
          G      A           D  Dsus4 D
Just to brush against your skin
                      G  F#m 
And a strand of your hair 
             Bm Bm/A G
lost to the wind
       G               A         D  Dsus4 D
Sent doves wheeling through the air

CHORUS:
             G  A                   D     Dsus4 D
But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
G               A            Bm  Bm/A Bm
  Stumbling on rocks in the dark
         G  A              D    Dsus4 D
But I remember, I still remember
          G               A        D  Dsus4 D
When you held me in your beautiful arms

INTERLUDE:
  G      F#m     Bm Bm/A   G         A      Bm  Bm/A Bm

VERSE 2:
                   G  F#m 
When you left me alone 
                    Bm Bm/A G
the sky turned to stone
        G           A        Bm  Bm/A Bm
And my legs rolled into the sea
             G   F#m 
Why did you go? 
                Bm Bm/A G
The sea was so cold
    G         A            D   Dsus4 D
My arms blew off in the breeze
                    G        F#m 
I search for your footprints, 
              Bm   Bm/A G
the scent of roses
        G         A         D  Dsus4 D
As the wind weeps over the sea

CHORUS:
             G  A                   D     Dsus4 D
But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
G               A            Bm  Bm/A Bm
  Stumbling on rocks in the dark
         G  A                  D    Dsus4 D
And I remember, I'll always remember
          G               A        Bm   Bm/A Bm Bm/A Bm Bm/A Bm
When you held me in your beautiful arms
