[Intro] C [Verse 1] C G Remember once I told you about Dm7 How before I heard it
from your mouth C G My name would always hit my ears
as such an awful sound C And the soul, if that's
what you'd call it Dm7 Uneasy ally of the body,
it felt nameless as a river F Dm7 Undiscovered underground
[Pre-Chorus] C G And the first time that you kissed me Dm7 I drank dry the River Lithe C G The Liffey would have been softer
on my stomach all the same C G But you spoke some quick new music Dm7 That went so far to soothe this soul C G As it was and ever shall be,
unearth without a name
[Chorus] C G Dm7 Some part of me must have died C G F The first time that you called me, "Baby" C G Dm7 And some part of me came alive C G F The first time that you called me, "Baby"
[Verse 2] C G These days I think I owe my
life to flowers To flowers that were left here
by my mother G Ain't that like them, giftin'
life to you again C G This life lived mostly underground Dm7 Unknowin' either sight nor sound C G 'Til reachin' up for sunlight
just to be ripped out by the stem
[Pre-Chorus] C G Sensing only now it's dyin' Dm7 Drying out, then drowning blindly C G Bloomin' forth its every colour F In the moments it has left C G To share the space with simple living things Dm7 Infinitely suffering,
but fighting off like all creation F The absence of itself, anyway
[Chorus] C G Dm7 Some part of me must have died C G F Each time that you called me, "Baby" C G Dm7 But some part of me stayed alive C G Each time that you called,
each time that you called
[Bridge] C Come here G Dm7 Ooh-la-la, ooh-la-la C G Whatever keeps you around,
it keeps you around C G Dm7 Ooh-la-la, come here, ooh-la-la C G Whatever keeps you around,
it keeps you around
[Verse 3] C G The last time it was heard out loud Dm7 The perfect genius of our hands
and mouths were shocked G F To resignation as the arguing declined C G When I was young I used to guess Dm7 Are there limits to any emptiness? C G When was the last time F Come here to me, when was the last time?
[Chorus] C G Dm7 Some part of me must have died C G F The final time that you called me, "Baby" C G Dm7 But some part of me came alive C G F The final time you called me, "Baby"
