    Intro: G  Gmaj7  Dm7  Am  (x2)

     

    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

     

    Chorus 1:

                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     

    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

    Here in the same room for so long

                    Fmaj7            G

    Out of the cold november

                  Ebmaj7 (2)

    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
