Underneath the Sycamore

Death Cab for Cutie

 

Capo 5

 

           >       >

Strum: D U D U D U D U

       1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

 

 

C          Em             Am (2)

Lying in a field of glass    Underneath the overpass

C                             Em                      Am (2)

Mangled in the shards of a mental frame     Woken from a dream by my own name

C                               Em        Am (2)

Well I was such a wretched man   Searching everywhere for a homeland

C                Em           Am (2)

Now we are under the same sun   Feel it through the leaves, let it heal us

 

Chorus:

C                       Em

We are the same, we are both saved

G   Am

      Underneath the sycamore

C                       Em

We are the same, we are both saved

G   Am

      Underneath the sycamore

 

C                          Em                     Am (2)

   We were both broken in our own ways   Sifting through the rubble for the wrong things

C                                        Em       Am (2)

    I know you've got a vengeful heart   I cannot be stopped soon as I start

C                                       Em             Am (2)

    But you have seen your darkest rooms   and I have slept in makeshift tombs

C                                 Em              Am (2)

   And this is where we find our peace   This is where we are released
