If we could see these many waves  That flow through clouds and sunken caves
She'd sense at least the words that sought her  On the wind and underwater

Jam:  Starts out with main theme, but segues into an A-D jam - 2 bars (8 beats) A chord diagramD MajorD with 4 bars (16 beats)
of A chord diagramA augmentedA - the "uneven" bars add tension.

Return to main theme  play 2x
Back to ☠☠*, repeat theme, fade out on "on the wind and underwater   "
