THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA - To Build A Home

This song is from the album Ma Fleur(2007), released on Jun 05, 2007.
I loved the complexity of the chords in this song. I usually figure out the chords as I listen to the songs, but this song took me multiple tries to get the chords right. The energy and emotion in the vocals were perfect for the solo piano in the background. The reverb and brilliance on the vocals and the piano made the song really interesting. Thanks to Zoe for this challenging song suggestion.

[INTRO] D A E F#m D A E
[VERSE]
D           A                 E
There is a house built out of stone
D               A           E
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
D              A           E
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
Bm         D                  A      E
This is a place where I don't feel alone
Bm         D                  A      E
This is a place where I feel at home.

[INSTRUMENTAL] D A D A E

[CHORUS]
    D  C#m      D
And I built a home
     A
for you
     E
for me
   D       C#m   D
Until it disappeared
     A
from me
       E
from you
      D        C#m       D   F#m   A      E
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

[INSTRUMENTAL] D A E Bm D A E

[VERSE]
D             A                E
Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
Bm          D        A     E
There is a tree as old as me
D              A              E
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Bm         D         A         E
Ground had arose and passed its knees


        D            A            E
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
Bm             D        A         E
I climbed the tree to see the world
            D         A            E
When the gusts came around to blow me down
Bm              D          A        E
Held on as tightly as you held onto me
Bm              D          A        E
Held on as tightly as you held onto me......

[INSTRUMENTAL] D C#m D A E

[CHORUS]
    D  C#m      D
And I built a home
     A
for you
     E
for me
   D       C#m   D
Until it disappeared
     A
from me
       E
from you
      D        C#m       D   F#m   A      E
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust
