Here's the lyrics. 

She peeled from a stretch black snake 
which slipped up from the hotel door. 
Darting looks from piercing eyes - 
The stir of memory and then no more. 
Well, you know how I have to believe - 
She can almost remember my name. 

(Chorus) 
It's been a long time coming, babe - 
Long time loose amongst foreign hills - 
Shaking my faith in this free will. 

Years ago in a coastal town, 
mosquitoes buzzed in her hair. 
Schooldress torn and bare feet brown - 
Then the rains came and she wasn't there. 
You're closing your doors on me 
when you had almost remembered my name. 
  

It's been a long time coming, babe - 
Long time loose amongst foreign hills - 
Shaking my faith in this free will. 
  

Sharp points in an ink-black sky - 
Faint words collide, then are lost. 
I'll follow you beneath this dome - 
Win you back at any cost. 
I know we were children then, 
but you can almost remember me name. 
  

It's been a long time coming, babe - 
Long time loss amongst foreign hills - 
Well, let's be children, still - 
Don't shake my faith in this free will. 

Don't shake my faith in this free will. 

With those lyrics I have just wasted 
all your printer ink.  Sorry, but I had to put 
them on this. 
I think the lyric's starting progression 
is E--F#m and that's all I can figure out. 
So if you know the rest of the chords, please tell me.
