   F#m11 E     
To be  a bee, a moth
F#m11                                   E
Four wings spread for the soft last touch
         A
Of glory sun
                  E                  A
Remembering blood plums and lips and lemons
                      E
One hundred different suns 
                       D
In a hundred different heavens
F               A     C#m
Spied from a rowboat, stroke
    G        F#m
And nought is spoken
  A        C#m          G       E
Before you know it the spell is broken
D                E
You might wonder where you are
A        C#m    G      F#m11
Floating on the reservoir
       E
I have counted the notes
   F#m11
We landed here not many years ago 
                        E               A
And it was not a pretty song that we composed
          E
La la la, the early bird he knows
    A
You hang from the cherry bough
            D                    F
When you're lichen yourself, and leave
    A         C#m      G        F#m 
The cold cold scent of stone and mulch
   A         C#m      G         E
A great stone wall to stave the rush
   D                      E
To think that peace might be too much
A       C#m     C   B  
Waiting for the giant

    F#m11     E 
The lake, the fir fringed lake
F#m11
Placid and ample, birded, breezed and dappled
            E
Through the mountain break
                     A
Through the mountain break
      E                A       D    F
A moment, take a moment, a moment
A 
You might wonder where you are
C#m
Perched above the reservoir
G
Adolf in the White hotel
E
All this time we've been in hell
A        C#m     G         F#m
You might wonder where you are
A        C#m      G    E
Perched above the reservoir
D           E
Luis of the Lake retire
  A         C#m     D       A
Before they set the lake on fire
  A         E       D       A
Before they set the lake on fire
  A         E       C    B  F#m11     
Before they set the lake on fire.
