White Sail

Michael Timmins

[D] [Bm] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]

[D] Raise a white sail if you love me
a [Bm] black sail if you don't.
[D] Seal me up in an impregnable tower
or [Bm] surround me with an impassable moat.
[A] I've heard all the stories [G] told about love
[D] (unattainable and [A] pure)
but there is one [G] love of which I'm [Em] sure. [NC] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]

[D] Your fear as honed as a battle axe,
I'll bear my [Bm] neck, I'll wear the scar,
[D] and if my nerve should fail the task
I know your [Bm] faith will not roam too far.
[A] I've heard all the stories [G] told about love
[D] (two souls into [A] one)
but this tale of love is [G] one we've just [Em] begun. [NC] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]

[Em] Isoldt had her Tris- [A] tan,
but love [F#m] potions are not what we [Bm] need,
and [Em] Paris had his [A] Helen but it was [F#m] infatuation
[Bm] that was plain to see.
[A] What I desire is your [G] trust to inspire
this [F#m] love for you which grows in [Em] me. [NC] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]

[D] Plant a rose tree on his grave
and on [Bm] mine plant a vine,
[D] as seasons pass and markers fade
watch them [Bm] slowly intertwine.
[A] I've heard all the stories [G] told about love
[D] (till death do us [A] part)
but our love is a [G] vow which has been [Em] wrought [NC]
from heart to [D] heart. [Bm] From heart to [D] heart. [Bm] [Em] [F#m] [G] [A] [Bm]
