Capo: 4th fret (E)
[Intro]
C
 
[Verse 1]
C
Come down from the stars, show your human scars
G [contd]
Tell me what it's like to believe
Dm7                                         Am
Through my Christ haunted thoughts that the losses you bought
         F                                 C
Are the nights that you peopled with your dreams
F                              C
Well, I've got no answers for heartbreaks or cancers
Em                                 G  
But a Savior who suffers them with me
Am               G            F           C
Singing goodbye, Olympus, the heart of my Maker
F                        G                    C
Is spread out on the road, the rocks, and the weeds
 
 
[Verse 2]
C
Come down from your mountain, your high-rise apartment
G [contd]
And tell me of the God you know who bleeds
Dm7                                      Am
And what to tell my daughter when she asks so many questions
F                                          C
And I fail to fill her heaviness with peace
F                            C
When I've got no answers for hurt knees or cancers
Am                                 C 
But a Savior who suffers them with me
Am               G            F           C
Singing goodbye, Olympus, the heart of my Maker
F                    G                        C
Is spread out on the road, the rocks, and the weeds
 
 
[Chorus]
Dm7                               G
And Aphrodite would not weep, nor Zeus would suffer for the weak
C                                    F
But have you come to stand inside my pain?
Dm7                                     G
And all the things I've begged you for, eternity and evermore
C                                   F
Are hidden with me here beneath the rain
    G
The rain
 
 
[Verse 3]
C
So shall I plant sequoias and revel in the soil
F                                   C
Of a crop I know I'll never live to reap?
            Am         G             F             C
Then sow my body to my Maker, and my heart unto my savior
    F                 G                      C
And spread me on the road, the rocks, and the weeds
 F                G
Spread me on the road
