Kopek – The Water Song (chords/tab)

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far for my favorite song off of Kopek’s new album, Rise. I’m less confident around the lyrics than I am the chords — especially the bridge — and am hoping I get someone to offer up any corrections. I’ll post it up on Ultimate Guitar as well but it’ll probably take a few days before getting approved.

The Water Song by Kopek
Album: Rise (2014)

Standard tuning

Intro & verses
(Note the notes on the A string are probably not on the actual recording but they sound better if you're playing alone without someone on bass.)

VERSE

Am
I can't wait till tomorrow
Am
I can't wait till next week
C
I can't wait five minutes
C
I can hardly sleep
Am
something in the water
Am
in the way you move
C
something in our daughters
C
that we have to prove

CHORUS

Am             F
since when was our love not
C              G
enough to stop the bruises
Am           F
from showing and hurting
C            G
just hold on we'll get through this
Am             F
the rain keeps on pouring
C         G                  Am   F
the water is soaking through
    C                 G
and I am sinking into you

VERSE

Am
I'm going to fill these oceans
Am
I'm going to blow this breeze
C
I'm going to spill this potion
C
as far as the eye could see
Am
I'm going to burn this city
Am
I'm going to sow this seed
C
I'm going to bring them buildings
C
back down to the street

CHORUS

Am             F
since when was our love not
C              G
enough to stop the bruises
Am           F
from showing and hurting
C            G
just hold on we'll get through this
Am             F
the rain keeps on pouring
C         G                  Am   F
the water is soaking through
    C                 G
and I am sinking into you

BRIDGE

G        Em           C               B   G
well I'm here and I'm ready, you know me
       Em                    C        B      Am
we can move the hearts of many and said go a free

Am
woo ooh a ooh a ooh a ooh
                       B     C
woo ooh a ooh a ooh a ooh

woo ooh a ooh a ooh a ooh
