INTRO:  C - F

VERSE I:

C         F             
Inside my skin
C             F
There is this space
C             F
It twists and turns
C             F
It bleeds and aches
C         F
Inside my heart
C                F
There's an empty room
C                F
It's waiting for lightning
G
It's waiting for you

CHORUS:

F C     G   
I    am wanting and
F C     G
I    am needing you
      C-F
To be here
           G
Inside the absence
   C      F
Of fear


VERSE II (same as I)

Muscle and sinew
Velvet and stone
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans
My bones call to you
In a separate skin
I'll make myself translucent
To let you in


CHORUS:

I am wanting and
I am needing you
To be here
Inside the absence
Of fear

C             F
There is the splendor of this
G
Secret inside of me
     F                      G
And it knows that you're no stranger
          C          F
You're my gravity
               C                G
My hands will adore you through all darkness
              F              G
And they will lay you out in moonlight
        F         F
And reinvent your name

F C    G
I   am wanting and
F C    G
I   am needing you
       C   F
To be here
           C   F
I need you near
           G
Inside the absence
     C   F   C  F   C
Of fear
