alt-J - Interlude I (The Ripe & Ruin): chords

Em                   G
She she she she only ever ver ver ver ver,
G                            A
Walk to to count count her steps,
Em                              G
Eighteen teen strides and she stops to abide
G                                A
By the law that she herself has set.
Em                    G
That eighten steps is one complete set,
G               D              G         A
And before the next nine right and nine left.

Em                       G
She looks up up at the blue,
A                           G/B
And whispers to all of the above.
Em                           G
Don't let me drown, don't breathe alone,
    D                  G     A
No kicks no pangs no broken bones.
Em                         G
Never let me sink, Always feel at home,
     D                   G   A
No sticks no shanks and no stones.
                Em                 G
Never leave it too late, Always enjoy the taste,
         D                     G         A
Of the great great great grey world of hearts.
  Em        G
As all dogs everywhere bark bark bark bark
D           A
It's worth knowing,
Em              A         G
Like all good fruit, the balance of life is
        D         Em
in the ripe, and ruined.
