				 Maura O'Connell - The Bright Blue Rose


CAPO: 1st Fret



[Verse 1]
C F
I skimmed across black water, without once submerging
C G
Onto the banks of an urban morning
C F
That hungers the first light, much, much more than the
C G C
Mountains ever do


[Verse 2]
C F
And she like a ghost beside me, goes down with the ease of a dolphin
C G
And emerges unlearned, unshamed, unharmed
C F
For she is perfect creature, natural in every feature
C Am G C
And I am the geek with the alchemists' stone


[Bridge]
F G C
For all of you who must discover,
F G C
For all who seek to understand,
F G C
For having left the path of others
Bb F G
You'll find a very special hand


[Verse 3]
C F
And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
C G
And it is the only way
C F
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it's always been and so it goes
C Am G C
To ponder his death and his life eternally


[Verse 4]
C F
And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
C G
And it is the only way
C F
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it's always been and so it goes
C Am G C
To ponder his death and his life eternally


[Verse 5]
C
One bright blue rose outlives all those
F
Two thousand years and still it goes
C Am G C
To ponder his death and his life eternally
