[Verse 1]
G       C             G         D           Em
In the same reckless city where great Antonio died
        C               G          D
On the island in the river with a mountain at its side
    C              G            D           Em
I came to scatter ashes of the bridges I've burned
        C       G           D           Em
And I know the name of the song that I heard
        C       G           D        G
Yeah, I know the name of the song I heard

[Verse 2]
        C               G         D            Em
Like a moonlight mathematician I subtracted my concerns
        C               G           D
And I multiplied my options and divided my returns
    C           G               D            Em
Sacrificed the angel who was tugging at my shirt
        C       G           D           Em
I was already claimed by the song that I heard
        C       G            D           G
Yeah, already chained to the song that I heard

[Verse 3]
        C               G         D            Em
From the corner of my eye I caught the shadow of a girl
        C               G           D
But my shoes were tied together and my face was in the dirt
    C           G               D            Em
Her gentle eyes said everything before she said a word
    C           G               D            Em
And I knew I was changed by the song that I heard
        C          G            D     G
Yeah, I knew right away by the song I heard

[Verse 4]
        C               G         D            Em
In the cult of desperation he stayed just behind the curve
        C               G           D
And no one here admits we're getting more than we deserve
    C           G               D            Em
I was born a first child, she was born a third
    C           G               D            Em
We were already named by the songs that we heard
        C          G            D     G
Yeah, already claimed by the songs we heard

[Verse 5]
        C               G              D          Em
Did I make you out at Phoenix from the ashes of a bird?
        C         G          D
Did we build our palace and watch it as it burned?
        C               G         D            Em
It's kind of like a lesson that had to be unlearned

[Verse 6]
        C          G           D         Em
Like a fool maker, Fall-taker, Forsaker, Heartbreaker
C             G           D           Em
Earthquaker, Soul-shaker, Soothsayer, Moon prayer
C            G         D        Em
Sun slayer, Yeasayer, Mistaker, Rattlesnaker
        C      G               D       G
We are already changed by the songs we heard
