Lirik Lagu dan Chord Gitar Bright Eyes - Oh You Are The Roots That Sleep Beneath My Feet And Hold The Earth In Place

Verse
------

  C                 Am
I met you through a common friend
       F           C
In the attic of my parent's house

                    Am
And though I didn't know it then
 F               G
I soon was finding out

Chorus
-------
            Am                 F
You are the roots that sleep beneath my feet
    C                G
And hold the earth in place
            Am
Each time a faucet opens
F                     C           G
Words are spoken, the water runs away
                F
And I hear your name
                C
No, nothing has changed

C  Am  F  C

Verse
------
  
There was this book I read and loved
The story of a ship
Who sailed around the world and found
That nothing else exists

Chorus
-------

Beyond its own two sails
And wooden shell
And what is held within
All else is sure to pass
We clutch and grasp
And debate what's truly permanent
But when the wind starts to shift
There's no argument

Interlude
----------

  C                 G
I sing and drink and sleep on floors
    Am             F
And try hard not to be annoyed
   Em              Am            G
By all these people worrying about me
           C                      G
So when I'm suffering through some awful drive
   Am           F
You occasionally cross my mind
       Em              Am            G
It's my hidden hope that you are still among them
Well, are you?

Em F G x2

Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet
And hold the earth in place
Each time a curtain opens
Sunlight pours in
A lifetime melts away
And we share a name
On some picturesque grave

repeat the interlude and there you have it
