Opening: (Fm Bbm C) x 2

           Fm Bbm     C
There's a gold shadow seeping through the door

           Fm Bbm     C
There's a cold sparrow lying still upon the floor

Fm              Ab
Dead and true as lipstick

F#                   Fm
Slow as the speed of skin

          C#     Bbm       C
There's a gold, gold shadow growing from within

*next verse is the same:*

           Fm Bbm     C
There's a bent willow in the moonlight painted blue

           Fm Bbm     C
There's a spent window silhouetting you

Fm              Ab
Deep and true as whiskey

F#                   Fm
Soft and sure as lies
          C#     Bbm       C
There's a bent, bent willow reflecting in your eyes


Ab                  C#              Ab
But now there's a girl out in a boat
                   C#                           Ab
Her arms are outstretched and she's barely afloat
                      Bbm                    Fm
There's a man on the shore, a rope in his hands
                  C#                                 Ab
It's tied to the boat, and he's pulling as hard as he can
                     C#                           Ab
Not to bring her to him, but to pull the whole shore
                         C#                 Ab
and the whole world with it to her open door

All his voices are her
All his voices are her

) x 2 

        F#              C#       C
Has he been here before?
Nobody's sure

Verse again (same chords):

There's a silver distance, a luminescent glimpse
There's a river of resistance, dried to cracks upon your lips
Brittle as believing
Sticky as betrayal
There's a silver distance opening up like a trail

Chorus again (same chords):

There was a time before all the leaves
covered the beauty of Adam & Eve
And they were blind, and they were free
To be whatever they wanted to be
But now they are just a prayer in a song
And he is so sorry for all that went wrong

All his voices are her
All his voices are her

Has he been here before?
Has he been here before?
