Catch & release    (video)

 

    C - Am - Em (2x)

 

   C                                      - Am

1.    There's a place I go to          where no one knows me,

Em                                                 C

    it's not lonely, it's a necessary thing.

                                        - Am

    It's a place I made up,          find out what I'm made of,

Em                                                                                 C

    the nights I stayed up, counting stars and fighting sleep.

 

                               Dm                            Em

    Let it wash over me, ready to lose my feet,

                                    F                                                     C

    take me on to the place where one reviews life's mystery.

                                     Dm                                  Em

    Steady on down the line, lose every sense of time,

                                 F

     take it all in and wake up that small part of me,

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   C

    day to day, I'm blind to see, and find how far to go.

 

                                Am                                        Em

Everybody got their reason, everybody got their way,

                                          F                                                          C

we're just catching and releasing what builds up throughout the day.

                          Am                                                       Em

It gets into your body, and it flows right through your blood,

                                      F                                             C

we can tell each other secrets and remember how to love.

 

                            Am       - Em

+  Daa daa dam dam …

C                         Am       - Em

    Daa daa dam dam …

 

    C                                           - Am

2.     There's a place I'm going,         no one knows me,

Em                                                                C

    if I breathe real slowly, let it out and let it in.

                                       - Am

    They can be terrifying         to be slowly dying,

Em                                                        C

    also clarifying the end where we begin.

 

 

 

 

                                   Dm                            Em

    So let it wash over me, ready to lose my feet,

                                    F                                                     C

    take me on to the place where one reviews life's mystery.

                                     Dm                                 Em

    Steady on down the line, lose every sense of time,

                                 F

    take it all in and wake up that small part of me,

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   C

    day to day, I'm blind to see, and find how far to go.

 

                                Am                                        Em

Everybody got their reason, everybody got their way,

                                          F                                                          C

we're just catching and releasing what builds up throughout the day.

                          Am                                                       Em

It gets into your body, and it flows right through your blood,

                                      F                                             C

we can tell each other secrets and remember how to love.

 

                            Am       - Em

+  Daa daa dam dam …

C                         Am       - Em

    Daa daa dam dam …

 

+ C    +  CHORUS
