Lyrics & Chords to tracks from "Searching"

Jeremiah

Intro- Dm/short C/Dm

 

(Chorus)

Dm

Jeremiah was an angel

      C                                 Dm

He led me with his finger tips

      C                     Dm

He led me to the ocean

  C    G           Dm   

Where I nearly wept

Dm

He said I was a stranger

      C                           Dm

My face showed no emotion

               C                 Dm

Then he led me to a river 

        C   G                 Dm

The faces, he did not show them

 

(Verse 1)

         Dm

They covered me in satin

   C                                 Dm

I saw the shades of the sun

         C                      Dm

And when I hit the water 

        C    G               Dm

The earth and I were one

Dm

I have felt the beauty

      C                     Dm

of a thousand silhouettes

         C                              Dm

And even though we’re strangers

   C  G                         Dm

I feel as though we’ve met

 

(Chorus)

look into my soul

Em  D A         Em D     A

I’m surely lost, all the things that time can cost

Em         D A         Em

Yeah my life is surely gone

Em         D A     Em D   A     Em

Hours turn to days, oh please show me the way

                D        A       Em

All these things I have to say

Bm     D G   Bm D G

Don’t live so comfortably,

        Bm         D G           Bm D G

and end up wasting your time

Em     A                 Em A

You’ll soon find out, it’s all a lie

Em A       Em     A C G                         A  

Pace yourself, cause life’s too short to wonder why

(Em D A  x4)

Em  D A      Em D     A Em

I’m on my own, I listen not grown

             D      A                 Em

I eat it right down to the bone

Bm  D   G   Bm         D G   Bm

So much to learn in such short of time     

D     G         Bm D G

Help me realize

Em               A

The right way to look at things

Em                                             A

Right way to spend my time

Em A                                  Em

Oh look into my eyes

   A C G                       A

They will tell you why

Em  A                     Em A   

Oh look into my soul, it’s a passionate one

          C                          G       A

Please show me the way, look into my soul

Creature

Capo 3 - playing D/C/G shape  

 

 (Chorus)

F            D#     A#

You are a creature

F                                      D# A#

Magnificent you are

F                             D# A#

I’ll hide you in my pocket

F                                               D# A#

And take away your scars

F                                               D# A#

I’ll feed you when you are hungry

F                                                D# A#

And lay beside you when you sleep

F            

Without you knowing

           D#                A#

I will watch you

F                                                       

Imagine your dreams and feel you

    D#    A#

breathe

(Verse 1)

F                              D#    A#

This creature inside you

F                               D#   A#

Is the loveliest I’ve seen

F                                                    D# A#

Won’t you take me back to your cave

F                              D#    A#   F

And with you I’ll be free

                D#             A#

oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

(Verse 2)

F                          D#             A#

This creature I’ve discovered

F                                             D# A#    

With a coat of silver shade

F                                                    D# A#

With a tongue that tastes of honey

F                                                    D# A#

And a mane just slightly tamed

F                                          D# A#

Your eyes see right through me

F                                         D# A# 

And you take over my mind

F                                             D# A#

You sit in silence as you watch me

F                             D#  A#   F

With you I’ll be just fine

              D#             A#

oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

                    (Chorus)

birch

C                                                    

We should take all that we had and

Em7

shoot it into space

                   F        

So that the human race can see what

                C

we have done

C                            Em7 

Birch was a place where the night sky

F        G                        C

could make you fall in love

 

C                                               Em7

We asked about passion and how it could be felt

          F                                   C

That you can find it in the trees  

 C                                                   Em7

That road led to a horizon where the future was so much bigger 

      F              G                           C

Uncertainty hung with every leaf

 

F                                                C

Love will grow stronger and turn around to tell you 

F                                        G

That you’re better off just keepin to yourself

C                         Em7               F

That’s who you need to know before you can 

            G                             C

Be the best for somebody else


 

        C                                           Em7

Our minds would get lost in the shelter

                           F 

of the stars seeing all the 

                                            C

worlds we’ll never get to know

                 

C                            

Learning there can be joy in being

Em7 

lucky to be apart of how the

F                   G          C

universe perpetually flows

 

F                                                        C

The memory of those days surely won’t melt away

                        F                          

I’ll take them with me as whatever

G

comes along

          C                                    Em7

But I do miss the joy of that little girl and boy

                    F          G               C 

So now I’ll go and find where I belong

 

F                                                C

Love will grow stronger and turn around to tell you

                    F                                    G

that you’re better off just keepin to yourself

C                         Em7             F

That’s who you need to know before you can

                G                         C

 give the best to someone else

My time with you

G      

I wish our lives could work out

C                                 G

just the way we’ve planned

         C

This promise I give you with my lips

                                                 G

You know I want to make it last

             

The time I have with you

   

 I want you to know

               C

That my feelings for you

                                               G

Have done nothing but grow

D

I don’t want a broken heart,

but I want to mend yours back 

     G

to health

        Am

This risk is worth taking honey

C                                         G

I love you and nobody else

 

G

I listen to the music

        C                                  G

My heart beats right along

             C                                            

And a tear falls to the strumming

                                           G

Of an empty lonesome song

D                       

All of your pain 

C                            G

is pain I wanna feel

               Am

I wanna carry you on my shoulders

                  C                          G 

And we’ll discover what is real

 

         G

The moon up in the sky

 

Is so very far away

 

Lessons you teach me that

                            G7

It can never be touched

                  C

But I have dreams

that could kill me, honey

                     G

So wish me luck

 

D                                             C

Even though the stars have died

                    G

It’s you I’m lookin for

Am                                              C

Even though the stars have all died

                                           G

Your love means so much more

Am                                              C

Even though the stars have all died

                                           G

Your love means so much more

live on without

Capo 2

 

(Chorus)

           G                                     C     

In an outcry we’ll travel and lose all direction

          G                                                 D7

Hold onto something we can never hold

G                               C  

Maybe it’s better to live on without 

                     G           D7     G

And live in places that are only cold

 

        G                                  C

Live only in searching for something that shines

                        G                                    D7 

Some kind of meaning of life in our love

            G                 C

There are so many days left to live

                G                    D7 C         G C G

I’m only looking for a place to call home

 

G                               C         G

I can’t forget that I still hold a heart in chains

                         D7

In place of my own

           G                               C             

So I’ll live on without my soul being soothed

              G               D7   C G C G 

And I’ll travel the world on my own


 

(repeat intro on G chord)


 

Bm               C               G

We’ll live in caves, never talk or smile 

                                   D7

only look up at the stars

Bm                  C                               G

And miss the direction our lives would have led

                                  D7                C G C G

But the distance to run was too far


 

(Chorus)

lost girl blues

Searching

G

Set me down upon a hillside

 

Breathe into me the fresh air

C

Part rain clouds and handle sunshine

G

Listen to me there

 

Storms keep creeping up to haunt me

 

Oh what meaning will I find

C

Lonely lost sense of direction

G

Will I travel my whole life blind

 

G

Whistling around my shoulder 

 

Thoughts of pure joy speak to me

           C

And I say “Oh please tell me where to find you”

G

Who will I be? Can I be free?



Days have led me to believe 

   

That I’ll never understand what I’ve been told

           

But to be kind to others and they’ll teach you

How to see a place that’s not so cold

          

Ooh oo hoo hoo

 

(Chorus)

Listen, listen, listen to me there, listen to me there

La da da la la la da la da la da

                      G 

Ooh oo hoo hoo

Was I wrong

(Chorus)

G                                                          Am

I need someone to tell me I’m alright

                                                                            G

It’s so hard to tell just from lookin in my eyes

                                                                                   Am

That I find peace and comfort under the love of a good man

                                                             G

And I do the best I can to not feel alone

G                

When you’re healing your heart two times over

                        Am

Tryin to find warmth, when it just keeps getting colder

                Am

Tryin to find a piece of mind 

                                                G

And with time come sweet direction

 

G

Was it wrong to be scared of leaving? 

                   Am

Can I just go and respect your grievin? 

Was I wrong to know

                                                 G

You’d be better off with me gone?

                  (Chorus x2)    (solo/break in between 2 last choruses)

Intro - Am/C/G/D


 

(Chorus)

Am                              C

When I was a girl, I couldn’t say no

                       G                                             D

And I had to find my way out of the snow

Am                                                                                   C

When I was a girl, I had a storm over my head

                                              G                      D             

I couldn’t seem to ever let my feelings show

 

Am                              

And I loved too much and too hard all at once

           C                                   G D

And I hurt to see anyone go, anyone go

Am                                                       C

Why did I waste all of my time tellin lies 

                     G                    D

Why did I hurt you, so many times

Am                                                               C

I wanna talk to myself and I wanna 

                                                   G  

Draw back a curtain in my own mind

                                       D

I wish I hadn’t been so blind


 

Am                                         C

I want your love close to mine 

                              G                    

Want you all the same and I’ve been searchin

for my own light in the darkness

C                                                              G D

Truth is the only thing that can help us

                                               Am                

Its the only thing that can save you from your darkest dreams 

               C

And it’s love that’ll set you free

             G                                                                                 D

It’s the stars above that are guiding you on your way

                                   Am  C

What I’m trying to say

                             G     D                     Am             

Is I wish I could stay (wish I could stay)

 

(Chorus)

i try

(Chorus)

G                                                          Am

I need someone to tell me I’m alright

                                                                            G

It’s so hard to tell just from lookin in my eyes

                                                                                   Am

That I find peace and comfort under the love of a good man

                                                             G

And I do the best I can to not feel alone

G                

When you’re healing your heart two times over

                        Am

Tryin to find warmth, when it just keeps getting colder

                Am

Tryin to find a piece of mind 

                                                G

And with time come sweet direction

 

G

Was it wrong to be scared of leaving? 

                   Am

Can I just go and respect your grievin? 

Was I wrong to know

                                                 G

You’d be better off with me gone?
