[INTRO] Bb
[VERSE]
Bb
Your face crept
Bb
Into that space
Bb
Between my reflex and my resolve
Bb                      Eb
Kinda like the crevice you don’t notice
            Gm               F
Til it takes down the damn wall
           Bb                     Eb
And now we are sitting in the window
          Gm             F                 Bb
Your forehead is red-hot and touching my knee
 Bb                     Eb
And I am checking my pulse
        Gm           F
Making sure it hasn’t quit on me
        Bb                 Eb         Gm
And I’m sorry if you’re thinking that I knew
            F
What I was doing
    Bb               Eb            Gm           F
I guess what I do best is look like I am in control
       Bb      Eb            Gm                F
But tonight, tonight, I am a soft and untamed thing
            Bb              Eb
And I will wrap my breath around you 
            Gm         F
til your exhale comes clean
         Bb       Eb
I am checking my pulse
        Gm          F
I am checking my pulse

Bb                  Eb              Gm          F
You are the buried penny at the bottom of the pool
      Bb             Eb     Gm          F
So I guess that makes me the fool diving deep for you
      Bb             Eb
I’ll stick you in my pocket
    Eb              F
All shiny, all precious, and all not mine
   Bb                Eb
A hidden, forbidden treasure
Gm               F
Baby, you’re the worst kind
          Bb             Eb           Gm           F
Cause underneath the surface, all things loom larger
          Bb               Eb
So I’m searching for your edges
     Gm             F
To fish you up, ship you up out of the water
   Bb                 Eb             Gm  F
And you are that sweet wish that she’s thrown
               Bb             Eb          Gm       F
I would have caught you in the air, girl, had I known
[INSTRUMENTAL] Bb Eb Gm F
             C                 F
And now the space between these bodies
 Eb
Surpasses the sum of its parts
            C               Bb
So I am crawling in-between these moments
 F
Balancing words hoping I don’t get stuck
C                           Bb
And I was just thinking ‘distraction’
         Eb
Now I’m thinking distraction’s a relative thing
       C           Bb
Cause I was casually splashing
         F                       Bb
And now I’m a casualty slowly sinking

[VERSE]

       Bb     Eb         Gm                 F
Cause in hot water, my brain just kinda puckers up
           Bb           Eb                   Gm
And I’m drowning jaws wide open now cause my mouth
               F
It just won’t seem to shut
         Bb                    Eb
And you might just be a shiny thing
     Gm                       F
But you are the shiny thing I am pursuing
    Bb                        Eb
And when I said "you talk too much"
          Gm              F
It was cause there was stuff 
               F
I’d rather you’d have been doing
       Bb             Eb
And then you take my breath
            Gm               F
I say "hey, I need that to get back to the top"
    Bb                   Eb
"but we’re beautiful down here", you say
            Gm
"you know, girl
        F
The world won’t stop"

            Bb             Eb
And we are sitting in the window
         Gm                 F
Your forehead is red-hot and touching my knee
         Bb          Eb
And I am checking my pulse
         Gm            F
Making sure it hasn’t quit on me
    Bb                Eb
I am just checking my pulse
         Gm                 F
Making sure it hasn’t quit on me
Bb              Eb      Gm F
I am just checking my pulse
