Absinthe

(Beth Orton)

Lyrics

Capo 2nd Fret

Em Am G Am G Am G Am
   G                             Am
My love's a star you only saw the traces of
     G                                 Am
What went before is not no more it's the embers of
G                              Am
People always catching names too late
    G                               Am
And we're all sorry there's no time to make the change

        G           
I could hear rebellion rising
I could feel the stars aligning
I could see the wave rising
                       Am              Em  Am G Am
But I never did seem to find my way back home

   G                            
My love's a ball I threw to you
     Am
Once I was gone you caught it too
G                        
Love ignored erodes in time
Am
changes shape went and changed your mind
G                         Am
All I really needed was someone to take me home
       G                             Am
Enough absinthe can crush your spirit to the bone

           G                            
And I could feel rebellion rising
I could hear the stars aligning
I could see the wave rising
                       Am              G   Am
But I never did seem to find my way back home
     G               Am              Em 
No I never did wanna find my way back home
Am G Am G Am G Am G Am G
