Capo 4 We earmarked our August vacation as a fine place to fall apart. And we heard that a trial separation was a quaint idea for a new start. Then the city approached like a bandit, my hands shook as they gripped the wheel. As if I'd always known there's no place like home to show you the way that you feel. A rainy afternoon in your bedroom , clothes in two piles on the floor. One is labeled old couture, the other's marked alms for the poor. I'm just loitering trying to look helpful; you offer two corners of the sheet. We fold over and over and over again and then in the middle we'll meet. Now some days I feel like an engagement ring, resting on the ocean floor. Yet others just like that same Glen Campbell record found in every second hand store. Now right now I'm watching a drummer, haul his drums into a bar. And deep down I'm secretly happy, that I play the harmonica. Am F7M Am G No I'm not sayin I'm lazy, I just, take more time to digress. And of more than three ways I empty my days, now that you're not around to impress. And of more than three ways I empty my days, now that you're not around to impress. F C G Those forming, morning birds. F G They don't do things by thirds. And your voice sounds just like it's reading, from a birthday telegram. It says you're looking a little older, I say that's funny because I am. Last year escaped by the window, and this year's going for a song. And the church bells they're plagiarizing, merrily we roll along. Am F7M Am G No we weren't together forever, but then what the hell does that mean? One persons lifetime the history of mankind, or the years since I turned seventeen? One persons lifetime the history of mankind, or the years since you turned seventeen? Yeah I was light headed unfettered not falsely, claimed to know the dimensions of love. I was prone to wild exaggeration, sayin things I had no concept of. Maybe love takes the form of a mountain, with no choice but forever to linger. Or maybe love lives in a soap bubble, at the mercy of a childs finger. But each one comes with a little rainbow, designed to hypnotize us. And I wouldn't trade one heart-broken minute, for a years worth of dull happiness. F C G F G C G F C (x4) So I built myself another lifetime, oh how quick did the calendar grow? And right now I'm seven years wiser, than I was twenty-five years ago. Am F7M Am I stop to play with this cat on the footpath, and he's cleaning his head G with his paw. And I know that you're gone so I'm moving on, still I know that you're worth mourning for. And I'm feeling just fine but I'm taking my time, cause I know that you're worth mourning for. Tabbed for Emma. I'm feeling just fine babe but I know that you're worth mourning for xoxo.
