Chords and Lyrics The Ballroom Thieves - Bees


Artist : The Ballroom Thieves 
Song : Bees

Intro :
C G Am F C G (x2)
C

Verse :
C G Am
There's a voice that pulls me stumbling through a symphony
F C G
And the less of it I need, the more I get
C G Am
'til I'm swept up by the shape of all the centuries
F G C
Like an echo in the chambers of my chest

Verse :

C G Am
I think she fears I'll be a servant to my history
F C G
Or worse, a slave to someone else's misplaced doubts
C G Am
So I try too hard to kill what's out to kill me
F G C
'til I'm blind and hiding in the lion's mouth

Chorus :

F C
And the words she aches to hear pour through my canyon
F G
And they're singing in the caverns of my limbs
C Am
And though I do my best to try to understand them
F G C
They only follow me like vultures in the end

Verse :

C G Am
I once read that I should write something worth reading
F C G
Or I should do something worth writing about
C G Am
And as my ears they buzz like bees upon the ceiling
F G C
I start to pour a little more than I'm allowed

Verse :

C G Am
I said our hearts know deeper seasons than our memories
F C G
She said "this harvest might sustain us for a year"
C G Am
And of all the thousand ways the world could tempt me
F G C
I've never met a better fighter than her fear

Chorus :
F C
So as I try to breathe the air that she is breathing
F G
And we dance a lightless dance upon my floor
C Am
I am burning to tell her she's all i'm needing
F G C
But i'm drowned out by all the noise outside the door

Verse :
C G Am
Carried by the current of the morning
F C G
Miles below the surface of the dawn
C G Am
This is not the place that I was born in
F G C
But it doesn't mean it's not the place where I belong
