Thawing Dawn by Andrew Savage Guitar Chords

[Intro]
Bb Db Gb Eb7 Db Bb Ebm

[Verse 1]
Bb Db
No one knows you quite the way that I do
Gb Eb7
No one owes me, not especially you
Db Bb
So find a river and deliver my remains to it soon
Ebm
This I request of you

[Verse 2]
Bb Db
Said a person that I knew from my sleep
Gb Eb7
“Savage, I’m free, but I ain’t cheap”
Db Bb
The thing you ache with has a function, either beat it or bleed
Ebm
What could I say to them

[Verse 3]
Bb Db
Man on fire, and he’s heading for Throop
Gb Eb7
Watched him burning as I sat on my stoop
Db Bb
A couple seconds felt like hours ’til I finally moved
Ebm
To beat the flames from him

[Verse 4]
Bb Db
Most religion is as far from faith
Gb Eb7
As the sun is from the shadows it shapes
Db Bb
Well I can hardly say for certain if I’m trapped or escaped
Ebm
When I’m away from you

[Verse 5]
Bb Db
When the summer draws the bugs in the house
Gb Eb7
And an acquaintance takes the form of a spouse
Db Bb
I need you wildly, as the bluejay needs a tune it can sing
Ebm
Into the afternoon

[Instrumental]

[Interlude]
E B
Like my mother she reminds
E B
With the ashes on her head
Gb E B
Dancing drunkly to the radio as she welcomes back the dead

Bb Db Gb Eb7 Db Bb Ebm

[Verse 6]
Bb Db
Twenty hours and I’m twelve in the hole
Gb Eb7
With thoughts of lightning as a beautiful doll
Db Bb
Across the island they are floating slow in luminous bulbs
Ebm
Inviting me to cross

[Verse 7]
Bb Db
Started drinking to meet strangers and folks
Gb Eb7
Who’d listen to me, who’d nod when I spoke
Db Bb
But these days when I’m thirsty I don’t mind staying home
Ebm
Drinking away the blues

[Verse 8]
Bb Db
Started smoking to keep up with my friends
Gb Eb7
I learned to love the feeling when I’m breathing it in
Db Bb
But I’m a lonely lighthouse shining by the sea on a cliff
Ebm
Dragging in solitude

[Instrumental]

[Outro]
E B
Of all the pieces I’ve combined
E B
Still the cruelest mixture yet
Gb E
Is the softness of a thawing dawn
B
And the hardness of regret
