    Underneath the Sycamore

    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
