The weather man he looks confused
C                              G/A                         D     
Shakes his fist at the sky like you used to do
But you don't remember things like that do you
      C                                    G/A                D
The balance was uneven but I'm breaking through

C      G              D 
Slow rivers run cold
C          G                   F           G
Shallow waters never sank so low
Bb                                         F        C
I thought I'd drown and you'd never know
              C                          F    C/E G 
You're a slow river and you run so  cold

The winter here don't believe in God
The bitter wind just bites through me like a wild dog
I still see your eyes tonight like headlights through the fog
But one foot in your door oh that's all I ever got

G                          C
Chances are you'll reappear
D                           Em
Swim my way in a flood of tears
F                                 C  
No place to hide your conscience so
C                                            Dsus4     D
You're a sinking ship with no place to go
