G C
G C
G C D G

[Verse]
G                                        C
She sits him down in a stiff chair
G                                        C
Rubs his back and strokes his hair
G                                        C
Telling him it's okay to cry
D                                 G
But he just sits and stares

C G

G                                        C
The merciless moon outside
G                                        C
Has nothing now he's come to realise
G                                        C
Only the desolation he feels
D                                G     C G
The cold distance inside

[Chorus]
Low E:-3-2-Em

Em
But you and I now
C                    G
We can be alright
         D                      Em
Just hold on to what we know is true
Em
You and I now
C                                G
Though it's cold inside
D
Feel the tide turning

[Verse]
G                                        C
While the priest just sits and weeps
G                                        C
Lamenting the fact that he can see
G                                        C
Darkness and light in so much detail
D                                G
He has given himself over

C G

G                                        C
Refusing what he knows to be real
G                                        C
He turns away from every meal
G                                        C
Starving himself of goodness
D                                G     C G
He doesn't think he can heal

[Chorus]
Low E:-3-2-Em

Em
But you and I now
C                    G
We can be alright
         D                      Em
Just hold on to what we know is true
Em
You and I now
C                                G
Though it's cold inside
D
Feel the tide turning

[Verse]
G                                        C
"What if I lost all I had?"
G                                        C
Said the stranger to his dad
G                                        C
And the witness was confused
D                                G
He can't tell what is bad

C G

G                                        C
Instead he runs up to the nearest girl
G                                        C
And he comments on her glorious curls
G                                        C
Says, "Darling come with me
D                                G     C G
I'll show you a whole new world"

[Chorus]
Low E:-3-2-Em

Em
But you and I now
C                    G
We can be alright
         D                      Em
Just hold on to what we know is true
Em
You and I now
C                                G
Though it's cold inside
D
Feel the tide turning
