MURMUR: SHAKING THROUGH

This song always surprises me on the album.  It seems like the last half of Murmur gets darker and darker until this song.  It's very bright and could have easily been featured on the first half.  It also features one of my favorite opening lines of a song ... it's just a nice statement of innocence. 


SHAKING THROUGH
Could it be that one small voice doesn’t count in the ruin?
Yellow like a geisha gown
Denyin' all the way

Could this by three beaten?
Order marches on
Yellow like a geisha gown
Denier all the way

Shaking through
Opportune
Shaking through
Opportune

A week worth waiting for
Take in after the rain-ing-ing-ing
Yellow like a geisha gown
Denyin' all the way

Shaking through
Opportune
Shaking through
Opportune

In my life …

Wheels that are still
Children of today on parade
Yellow like a geisha gown
Denyin' all the way

Shaking through
Opportune
Shaking through
Opportune
Shaking through
Opportune
Shaking through
Opportune


This song is nicer to play if you have a piano player.  In the song, the chords are handled by piano while Peter picks away.  However, to fill in the song, feel free to throw in a strum of the chords if you don't happen to be near a pianist.   In this song everything is picked besides the intro, feel free to listen to the song to figure out the picking pattern.  Speaking of the intro, if you didn't notice, the first two formations are the same as the first two from Wolves, Lower ... only backward. 
   I've also included the little interlude between this song and We Walk, so enjoy ...
