Section 1: Clean guitar verses

Verse 1: Gtr 1 strums the chords while Gtr 2 picks the notes. Chords here
are referred to Capo for Gtr 1

[Dm(sus2)]The watchmaker works all day and [Am(sus2)]long into the night
[Dm(sus2)]He pieces things together des[Am(sus2)]pite his failing sight
[Dm(sus2)]Though all the cogs connect with [Am(sus2)]such poetic grace
Time has left its curse upon this place
Each hour becomes another [E5/D]empty space to fill
Wasted with the care and virtues of his skill

Verse 2: As verse one

[Dm(sus2)]The watchmaker buries something [Am(sus2)]deep within his thoughts
[Dm(sus2)]A shadow on the staircase of s[Am(sus2)]omeone from before
[Dm(sus2)]This thing is broken now and c[Am(sus2)]annot be repaired
Fifty years of compromise and aging bodies shared
Eliza dear, you know, there’s [E5/D]something I should say
I never really loved you, but I’ll miss you anyway

Flute solo: This section is not referred to the capo as it is tabbed for Gtr 2

SECTION 2:

Piano begins (No Guitar for a while)

You were just meant to be temporary while I waited for gold
We filled up the years and I found that
I liked having someone to hold
But for you I had to wait
Until one day it was too late

AH!!!!!
TU TU TU!

Gtr 2 enter after the drum section around minute 9:00

Cogs and levers mesh
We are bound in death
Melt the silver down
I’m still inside you
