about

An eery, folk-bluesy tune that works with the ebb and flow of the rhythm of the organ juxtaposed against a shimmering 12 string guitar, with Emy's exquisite vocal phrasing and timing.

lyrics

The Water Washes
by John Beccia

(em7-------am7----em7----C---D---em7---------------C----D---em7-)

em7
You know I never really heard a sadder sound
am---
Until I heard the word that you’d no longer be around
em - em7
The waves come crashing down
Cmaj7 D6 em7------------
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground (2 times)

em7
You know I never knew how sad that life could be
am---
I was just hoping that we’d hold on to what we had found
em
The time comes crashing down
Cmaj7 D6 em--------
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground
Cmaj7 D6 am - G-D - em-
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground

instrumental - (am7--------em7-------am---C--G-D-em7---------)

em7
You know I never really saw a sadder sight
am
Until that night when we were left there in the silent sound
em
No answers can be found
Cmaj7 D6 em
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground (2 times)

em7
I never heard a song that had a sadder end
am
Till the time comes when you are losing the best friend you’ve found
em
The love comes crashing down
Cmaj7 D6 em
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground
Cmaj7 D6 am - G-D - em
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground

instrumental - (am7--------em7-------am---C--G-D-em7---------)

(em7-------am7----em7----C---D---em7---------------C----D---em7-)

em7
The water flow’s inside of all alive today
am
Outside, the rivers go in many different ways they’re bound
em
The waves come crashing down
Cmaj7 D6 em
The water washes over us, and tosses us out on the ground (3 times)
