The chord names below are written to represent the chord shapes, as if there was no capo,  not the actual notes. So, for example the first chord is written CM but sounds as Eb when played because of the capo.

Lyrics

Thrown into the sea

Waves churning and crashing and pulling

(and) when you go under

the whole world is holding its breath with you

 

Dances against the windows

Lie down dear

It’s just the wind dear

There’s nothing out there but the willow

Twisting and snapping

You should stay here till the morning
