Verse:

         G                      Gmaj7 

This morning under awaking glow

       Dm7                               Am

The sun filled our room like December snow

        G                           Gmaj7 

Like morning through an old window

                Dm7                             Am

There's a place in your head I will always know

If it's on your mind, it'll be on mine 'cause

G     Gmaj7    C (2)

I   know you     well

             G      

Like the soil in the ground

 Gmaj7                                    C (2)

Grass grown in the shadow of a bell

                G          

And if the bell will never toll

 Bm                              Am7 (2)

You and me grow old, I hope we'll live to tell

                G                         C     

How you know I know you knew I know you well

 

G  Gmaj7  Dm7  Am  (x2)

 

Verse:

         G                      Gmaj7 

Down under, beneath the softened skin

       Dm7                               Am

Where the words we whisper sink in

         G                      Gmaj7 

It's no wonder the way the words still ring

       Dm7                               Am

Sure as sin, it's not a secret thing

 

Chorus 2:

            C (½)              G (½)   C (½)       G (½)

To the same world born      two of a kind

        Fadd9                   Am7

If it's on your mind, it'll be on mine 'cause

G     Gmaj7    C (2)

I   know you     well

               G      

Like the soil in the ground

 Gmaj7                               C (2)

Grass grown in the shadow of a bell

           G          

And if the bell will never toll

 Bm                               Am7 (2)

You and me grow old  I hope we'll live to tell

                G                        C (½)   D (½)       

How you know I know you knew I know

Still as a passport picture

               Fmaj7 (2)

Still as a passport picture

               Ebmaj7 (2)

Still as a passport picture

               Fmaj7 (2)

Still as a passport picture....well
