Severus And Stone
Intro: D Bm G The Bm and G are played in quick succession, like the chords in the song. If you choose you could fingerpick the D to make it more like the actual song. D Bm G all the trees stood like skeletons D Bm G silhouettes of spilled ink D Bm Bsus2 and the snows fell in sheets and got wrapped around our feet Bsus2 A we built the fire evermore with winter beating at the door Bm Bsus2 D Bm G brother's eyes were getting heavier D Bm G his bony hands cold and white D Bm Bsus2 and I could hear his ragged breathing like the wind along a knife Bsus2 A G there beside him through the night, in the hum of candlelight Bsus2 D I no longer felt the time D Bm Bsus2 A D brother woke just after midnight Bm and he didn't make a sound D Bm and as he climbed from out of bed with severed rings around his head Bsus2 A D his feet didn't touch the ground G I could feel it then A a tiny miracle Bm so I followed him D into the woods G crossed beneath the trees A Bm but only I left my prints in tow D he was afloat G found a lonely tree A Bm and tied himself within its limbs D and he said to me these words: G "don't you fear for me, A D I am where I'm supposed to be." D and when I woke he was gone G and I was wrapped in blankets on the lawn Bm Bsus2 the sky was blue and my skin matched the hue G and I could hear mother crying in your room A from here on out I wear this face for both of us G A Bm G x2 D Bm G x2 Finish on D.
