[Intro] D  G  Em  G x2

[Verse 1]
D                G                       Em                G
 I'd like to say, I make good use of my time while you've been away.
D              G                      Em    G        D          G  Em  G
 And it's true, I've been at my piano everyday...thinking of you...
D                 G
 They talk around, I hear them whisper,
         Em                         G
 its the funniest thing really they, think you're gone forever.
 D                         G                   Em     G
 I know the truth its just, getting hard to believe it...

A              G               A          Cadd9
 and they all tell me its over, even the stars are alligned and I,

[Chorus]
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still I fall in,
     G
 the quicksand's pulling me down.
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still they catch me,
     G
 the quicksand's pulling me down.

D  G  Em  G

[Verse 2]
D
 I'm not the same,
G                                 Em                       G
 I can't sleep nights and now I'm calling your name when I do.
D                        G                 Em                      G
 And yet without you they, say I get on better, and better, and better..

A              G
 when they all tell me it's over,
A              Cadd9
 I'll damn the gods until the stars are alligned, and I,

[Chorus]
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still I fall in,
     G
 the quicksand's pulling me down.
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still they catch me,
     G                       Bm
 the quicksand's pulling me down..

Bm  G x2

[Bridge]
      Bm
 Well look at my life and look at my face,
 Bm                                 G
 can't you see my heart bleeding down my sleeve?
           Bm
 So you're holding my hand and holding my heart,
     Bm                                         G
 but I just want to feel your breath inside me so I, can breathe.
 Bm
 Somewhere in the distance I catch a spark, a grace,
     Bm                                                 G
 and hope for something that makes me feel like I'm alive.
     Bm
 It's never too soon, it's never too late, so I start screaming out, I,
           G                                         A
 see your face, I see your hand, reaching out, and I yell to you and I say:

[Chorus]
*guitar break in acoustic version(otherwise same as above)*

I follow the signs so clearly and still I fall in

the quicksand's pulling me down.
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still they catch me,
     G
 the quicksand's pulling me down
D             A                    Em
 I follow the signs so clearly and still I fall in,
     G
 the quicksand's pulling me down
D               A                  Em
 I know you can feel me rising and I'm on fire,
 G         D        A  Em  G
 keep on pulling me out...out..

D
 Look at my life and look at my face,
     A                                      Em         G
 and look where I've come to get to this place with you...
D                                           A
 Being here to sit and lay at your feet and rest in your arms,
                 Em            G
 and listen to your heart beat...

D       A       Em   G
 Ohhhhh, Ohhhhh, Ohhhhh.... x 4 (or as many as you like)

[outro]   D  A  Em  G  A  D
