             The Storm

The C and F chords are played slightly non-standard for ease of movement. 
I highly recommend watching  the youtube video of them playing the 
acoustic version live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4FuSixYHKQ. 
This is great for getting the timing and strum pattern figured out.
Also Mikel doesn't use a pick through "like a house in a storm", which
adds a lot to the piece. The chords:

        C      F      Am
e|------0------0------0------|
B|------1------1------1------|
G|------0------2------2------|
D|------2------3------2------|
A|------3------3------0------|
E|------3------x------x------|

The "~C" represent the dramatic break in strumming of the 
previous chord before beginning the C chord.

Intro:
C

F                  C
Before it took you away,

   Am                 F       C
I tried to think of something I could say.

              F              C
I watched the shadows in the hall.

          Am             F             C
How they danced with the light and the white on the walls.

     C             F        C            F
Your face in these pictures looks like a poem.

     C        F         C     F
Your eyes lit up like a river stone.

     C       F           C       F
Your body so much like a blanket thrown,

Am               C       F                      
On a warm bed at night, like a house in a storm.


~ C


              F                      C
And then you walk right through the doorway.

    Am             F       C
You tell me you're here to stay.

    F                    C
The worst is gone and my God how long,

   Am         F         C
Have you been here this way?


            F                C 
And I surprise myself sometimes,

            Am      F             C
The way the days unfold and this road unwinds.

    F                  C
You tell me you see it too,

         Am             F           C
And the miles seem like inches when I think of you.



         C   Am          F        C
Its been 25 days since I've been gone.

C   Am          F            C   
25 weeks since I've seen my home.

        C    Am      F           C
I spent 25 months chasing this song,

      C          Am    F 
and all of this time I've been alone.


~ C


              F                      C
And then you walk right through the doorway.

    Am              F        C 
You tell me you're here to stay.

    F                 C
The worst is gone and my God how long

     Am        F         C
Have you been here this way?


        Am    F     C
And you knew it all along.

         Am    F   C
I wasn't happy all along,

         Am    F    C
and your body all I wanted

    Am    F         C   
led me to just come home.


~ C

              F                      C
And then you walk right through the doorway.

    Am      F              C 
You tell me you're here to stay.

    F                 C
The worst is gone and my God how long,

    Am        F         C
Have you been here this way?


     C            Am            F            C
And I only just learned how to stand like a man,
         
         C   Am               F       C
I've got 25 years I've been running instead.

 C          Am         F          C
How could I see the ground at my feet

           C          Am              F
From what you gave to me when I was caught in the storm

                     End on C
That I wasn't alone
