       ~ Dar Williams~ "the green world"

C(add G)                                             Fmaj7
go ahead, push your luck, find out how much love the world can hold,
                   Dm7               F          G       C   G
once upon a time i had control, and reigned my soul in tight.

         C(add G)                              Fmaj7
well the whole truth, it's like the story of a wave unfurled,
but i held the evil of the world,
   F                            G
so i stopped the tide, froze it up from inside,

          C(add G)                                Fmaj7
   and it felt like a winter machine that you go through and then,
   you catch your breath and winter starts again, 
        F        G              C   G
   and everyone else is spring bound.

         C(add G)                                        Fmaj7
and when i chose to live, there was no joy, it's just a line i crossed
it wasn't worth the pain my death would have cost
   F          G        C   G
so i was not lost or found. 

       C(add G)                                  Fmaj7
and if i was to sleep, i knew my family had more truth to tell.
and so i traveled down a whispering well, 
   F        G          C  G     
to know myself through them.

        C(addG)                                      Fmaj7
growing up, my mom had a room full of books, and hid away in there,
her father raging down a spiral stair, 
     F                       G
till he found someone, most days his son,
        C(add G)                               Fmaj7
   and sometimes i think my father, too, was a refugee, 
   i know they tried to keep their pain from me, 
        F         G                C  G
   they could not see what it was for.

        C(add G)
but now i'm sleeping fine, 
sometimes the truth is like a second chance,
i am the daughter of a great romance,
    F             G              C   G
and they are the children of the war.

(break) C(addG)   Fmaj7    Dm7    F    G    C    G 

         C(add G)                                Fmaj7
well the sun rose with so many colors, it nearly broke my heart,
it worked me over like a work of art, 
    F        G           C   G
and i was a part of all that.

      C(add G)                                        Fmaj7
so go ahead push your luck, say what it is you gotta say to me,
we will push on into that mystery,
          F                              G                 C   G
and it'll push right back, and there are worse things than that,

             C(add G)                              Fmaj7
   cause for every price, and every penance that i could think of, 
   it's better to have fallen in love, 
        F             G          C  G
   than never to have fallen at all,

               C(add G)                                   Fmaj7
cause when you live in a world, well it gets into who you thought you'd be,
and now i laugh at how the world changed me,
F            G               C(add G)     Em    Am    G    C(add G) G C(add G)
i think life chose me after all.
