OF MONSTERS AND MEN - Crystals

This song is from the album Beneath the Skin(2015), released on Jun 09, 2015.
What I liked the most about this song is the way that she sang the song. She intentionally swallowed the endings of some words, almost as if she ran out of sound, that added a nice and beautiful feel to the song. The production felt really nice and made the song really interesting. The cascading toms and the snares added a nice vibe and effect to the song.

[INTRO] F
[VERSE]
         C
Lost in skies of powdered gold
            F
Caught in clouds of silver ropes
          C
Showered by the empty hopes
       F
As I tumble down, falling fast to the ground

[PRE-CHORUS]
    Am          G                     F
I know I'll wither so peel away the bark
F                                 Am
Because nothing grows when it is dark
                     G                          F
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
                   F
I see it all so clear

[CHORUS]
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
            G                   F              C
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
               G                   F         C
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

[VERSE]
C
Making waves in pitch black sand
           F
Feel the salt dance on my hands
          C                               F
Raw and charcoal coloured thighs feel so cold
F
And my skin feels so paper-thin

[PRE-CHORUS]
    Am          G                     F
I know I'll wither so peel away the bark
F                                 Am
Because nothing grows when it is dark
                     G                          F
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
                   F
I see it all so clear

[CHORUS]
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
            G                   F              C
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
               G                   F         C
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

[BRIDGE]
C          Am                 G
But I'm okay in see-through skin
      F
I forgive what is within
                       Am
Because I'm in this house
              G
I'm in this home
         F
All my time

[CHORUS]
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
            G                   F              C
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
C                Cmaj7 Am
Oh Cover your crystal eyes
               G                   F         C
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine
