[Verse]
   C#m                                  Bm
We walked along the rocks for nearly an hour
  C#m                                    Bm
I caught the way you looked at me in the sunlight
    C#m                                   Bm
You took something before you went in the shower
    C#m                                           Bm
You have suppressed the things that make you feel uptight
         E                  E/B           E               E/B
If I had known you couldn't swim we would never have gone in

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river 
A         E       D
 The only one who sees
A           E           D
 I lost his hand in the current
   E              C#m            Bm
It was the life I wanted and I’d hoped for
    E             C#m                 Bm
And now I am left sifting through the leaves

[Verse]
    C#m                                      Bm
His arms so hard, I saw his skin through his t-shirt
    C#m                                   Bm
The grass so tall, we knew we wouldn't be found
   C#m                                    Bm
We climbed into the stream so no one will be heard
    C#m                              Bm
And in no time at all there wasn't a sound
       E                  E/B           E               E/B
If I’d known you couldn't swim we would have never gone in

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river 
A         E       D
 The only one who sees
A           E           D
 I lost his hand in the current
   E              C#m            Bm
It was the life I wanted and I’d hoped for
    E               C#m                 Bm
And now you’re left sifting through the leaves

[Bridge]
   E
No colour to his skin, inform the next of kin
   E             D
No colour to his skin

[Chorus]
A          E           D
 I left my love in the river
A         E     D
 The only one I see
A           E           D
 I left his hand in the current
    E             C#m                 Bm
And now I am left blowing through the trees
