ANTJE DUVEKOT CHORDS & LYRICS


PHOENIX

Capo I

(Am)I am your daughter carved out of your (F)stone
I'm the (Am)seed that you dropped
I'm the marrow of your (F)bone
(Am)I am the one who asked no questions(F)
De(Am)signed to love you (G)unconditional(F)

I (Am)sprouted my shoots and waited for your (F)hands
I (Am)laid down my roots but the summer came and (F)went
I (Am)looked to the sun and longed to feel your (F)touch
But (Am)you knew nothing of (G)unconditional (F)love

CHORUS
I (C)rose up like a (G)phoenix (Am))rose up from your (F)ash
(C)You just turned your (G)back and I'll (Am)never under(F)stand
(C)Though I had no (G)armor (Am)you just let me (F)go
(C)Into the (Am)night to battle with your (G)ghosts

(Am)If I could go back there I'd be my own angel(F)
(Am)She won't buy you a mockingbird, she's incapa(F)ble
So (Am)hush little baby and close your tired (F)eyes
There (Am)are no answers so (G)hush now hushabye(F)

CHORUS

So I (C)gathered up my (G)sorrows
And I (Am)took them on my (F)tongue
And (C)sang them 'til the (G)morning
When the (Am)sun came in so (F)strong
I (C)sang them 'til the ((Am))daybreak
And that's how I became (G)strong (Am)


NEW SIBERIA

Capo II

(G)I was planted in a flower bed of (C)sorrows
Where (Am)raven's laughter blew up from the (D)west
Carried (G)whispers of a dream about to(B7)morrow
And my (Em)heart it just beat borrowed in my (C)chest

So I (G)rode my one-eyed mare across the (C)tundra
As (Am)soon as I was old enough to (D)go
There were (G)dangers that befell the ones who (B7)wandered
But the (Em)fern moss just looked pretty in the (C)snow

And I (Am)watched my breath crystal(Em)lize
Against a (B7)lawless sky
And I was looking (G)for . . .

You
Looking (Em)for you
Looking (D)for new(Em) Siberi(Am)a

Well I (G)followed my small destiny with (C)valor
(Am)Knowing I'd be better off a(D)lone
Than to (G)sit upon a shore with dry-land (B7)sailors
For the (Em)quest slept in the marrow of their (C)bones

And their (Am)hearts were (Em)dull
To the (B7)heron's call
And I was looking (G)for . . .

You
Looking (Em)for you
Looking (D)for you(Em), my new Si(G)beria

Well I (G)grabbed my army knife and scratched the (C)surface
Of (Am)battlegrounds where dragon teeth lay (D)sown
Half a (G)picture of my lover in my (B7)pocket
And the (Em)other half as of yet un(C)known

And at (Am)night I (Em)slept
I was (B7)dreaming of . . .

(G)You
Looking (Em)for you
Looking (D)for new(Em) Siberi(Am)a

I was looking for (G)you
Looking (Em)for you
Looking (D)for you(Em), Siberi(Am)a

I was looking for (G)you, Siberia
Looking for (Em)new Siberia
Looking for (G)you, Siberia


SLEEPY SEA OF INDIGO AND BLUE

Capo II

Hint: the fingering for the (D*) chord is a (C) shape played at the third fret.

(G)You were there
I (D/F#)don't know why
(Am)Maybe we were brothers in an(C)other time
Among a (G)hundred trains
And (D/F#)all those trite refrains
(Em)Somehow you let your train go (C)by

I said I've (G)never felt pain
I travel (D/F#)in submarines
Don't think I'd (Am)make much of a swimmer
So I (C)live under the waves
Because you (G)cannot sink
If (D/F#)you don't try to swim
(Em)But somehow I just let you (C)in

And I don't know how you (D*)made it past my guards
(Am)You knew the (F)secret of their (C)hearts

CHORUS
So (G)lay me down gently, gather me to you
On a (C)sleepy sea of indigo and (D/F#)blue
Sing (G)me song that's tender
And (Em)love will come to (Bm)you
On a (C)sleepy sea my (D/F#)love will come to (G)you

You said I (G)understand your (D/F#)sense of fear
The (Am)city's made of timber and the (C)flames are on the hill
But in a (G)stillborn world, in a (D/F#)strange and troubled time
(Em)I will sing you lulla(C)bies

And I don't know what to(D*)morrow has in store
(Am)But I will (F)pin my heart to (C)yours

CHORUS

(C)And at the crumbling of the hour
In her twilight evening (G)gown (D/F#)
(F)Over waters emerald green
We'll watch the silver sun go (C)down (D/F#)

CHORUS (2x)


SWEET SPOT

Dropped D
Capo V

Bm: x20230

The first verse is done a cappella, but these are the chords if you feel like using 'em.

Once you (D)stood below a (D/F#)mountain
Now you (G)find yourself sur(D)prised
This is the sweet spot of your (A)life (G)(A)
'Cause this new (D)view compares to (D/F#)nothing
Gone the (G)hardship of your (D)climb
This is the (A)sweet spot (G)of your (D)life

And it would (D)seem the ice is (D/F#)melting
It seems you've (G)come in from the (D)cold

So you must (D)hold these days like (D/F#)treasures
In a (G)jewel box in your (D)heart
This is the sweet spot of your (A)life (G)(A)
For you know (D)well they are most (D/F#)precious
Into an (G)old tree you must (D)carve them
This is the (A)sweet spot (G)of your (D)life

May it (D)only sting a (D/F#)moment
When you (G)dive into that (D)blue
This is the sweet spot of your (A)life (G)(A)
'Cause by the (D)time you hit the (D/F#)surface
It has (G)rearranged (Bm)you (Asus4)
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot of your (D)life (G)(A)(D)

You always (G)wanted something (A)solid
Just (Bm)one solid (Asus4)thing

They only (A)love you when you sing
But you don't (G)need those fickle (A)angels to (Bm)shine (Asus4)
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot of your (D)life (G)(A)(D)

It has (G)rearranged (Bm)you (Asus4)
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot of your (D)life
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot
(G)This is the (A)sweet spot

May (Am)cause me to (F)sway
But I am (C)teaching myself to be (G)brave

SCREAM

Capo II

Intro: (Em)(C)(Am)(B7)

There's (Em)not too many people that I (C)really call my friends
And (Am)every path I take (B7)comes to an end
I (Em)might draw near be(C)fore I slip out like a thief
The (Am)only reason I arrive (B7)is to (Em)leave

I (Em)will find desperation in the (C)middle of this peace
And (Am)I will be your friend, but (B7)friend, I wouldn't count on me
For I will (Em)sell your trust that I (C)didn't even earn
And I (Am)won't be happy with this bridge (B7)'til I can sit and watch it (Em)burn

CHORUS
(Em)You are the fisherman
I am the storm
(C)You become a baby when I (B7)hold you in my arms
(Em)You are a vessel floating upon my sea
And my (C)waves are crashing
And I (B7)cannot hear you scream

I (Em)know that you have given (C)everything you could
To a (Am)brain that willed, but a (B7)heart that never ever would
For it is (Em)lost, unsure, a(C)fraid and it is blind
And (Am)it will claim you were never (B7)on its (Em)side

CHORUS

(Em)I am a cold front and you are a rosebud
(B7)I am a salt mine and you are a deep cut
(Em)I am a flood wave and you are a nutshell
(B7)You are an ice patch and I am the sun
(Em)I am a sharp nail and you are a bare foot
(B7)I am a thumb tack and you are a tire
(Em)I am a fire, I am a tall cliff
(B7)I am a tall cliff and every man falls

CHORUS
