Basia Bulat
Heart Of My Own by Basia Bulat





                         Heart Of My Own





Standard tuning
Capo 3rd

Note: My first tab so any mistakes just leave comment. Also, the lyrics are still 
a mystery to me so don't know if they're right. Have no idea what she says 9th line in chorus. 


Intro: Em Bm C Am Em


Verse:

Em                 Bm
Under that burning ether that falls 
C                   G
down on these walls burning my arms 
  D                          Em 
I've been alarmed when I sat by you
               Bm
For every word I could undo 
 C                      G
I've been uncrossed and I've been untrue
 D                                 Em
I've been the thorn I've been the heart


Chorus:

Em
The heart of my own

burn it down low
                   C
the light in your verse 
                 G
and the shadow between
                D                  Em
the way that I was when I used to know

if I go what do I hope
          C                     G
For the maid or the mother I'll be
             D                       Em
If only the loom and a thread would hold
       C                G
It is work to be ? out here
              D                 Em
Tomorrow I'm mending the empty bones
           C                       G
There are roses that come without seeking 
              D                  Em
They are the ones that I have to sow
          C                G
In your verses that I am repeating
                D                  Em
The way that I was when I used to know


Instrumental:

Em Bm C Am Em
Em Bm C G D
Em Bm C G D Em


Breakdown:

C          D             G      Em
I wrote on these walls a simple charm
   Am                 C
To keep the wolves at bay
            D        G           Em 
Gave of a heart the strength of my arms
  Am                   C
To hold you close and safe
                   D         G           Em
But I kept my eyes closed and I'll never know
          Am                 C
Where the shadows are these days
               D         G     Em
I stood in the room of a house divided
Am
Ah and it washed away from me
C
It washed away from me
Am
Oh and it washed away from me
C
It washed away...


Chorus:
              Em
...to take my own

burn it down low
                   C
the light in your verse 
                 G
and the shadow between
                D                  Em
the way that I was when I used to know

if I go what do I hope
          C                     G
For the maid or the mother I'll be
             D                       Em
If only the loom and a thread would hold
       C                G
It is work to be ? out here
              D                 Em
Tomorrow I'm mending the empty bones
           C                       G
There are roses that come without seeking 
              D                  Em
They are the ones that I have to sow
          C                G
In your verses that I am repeating
                D                  Em
The way that I was when I used to know


Outro:

Em Bm C Am Em
