Intro (fingerpicked):
Am Cm (x3)
C7 B7

  Am        G    Bm
I found you in a park
     C        Bm   Em
In a well-lit city summer
  Am         G           Bm
I heard your heart speed up
        C      Bm      B7
Like an infant full of wonder

Em Em G Bm (x2)

Am     G     Bm
I will be my lake
    C        Bm      Em
And you will be your ocean
     Am      G      Bm
I'll hide in the Midwest
C                Bm     B7
Far from your perpetual motion

Em Em G Bm (x2)

    C7               B7
Our waters can never mix

    Em  F#m       G
I'm any port in a storm
   C   Bm        G
Or any cliche in writer's block
    Em       F#m      G
The opinions that you form
    C          Bm       Em
You make me up when you talk

     C              Em
It's me, your terra cotta
  G                    B7
A brittle pot ready to fall
    C                Em
But you won't see me nowhere
     G     B7
That is, until you
C             Em
Call me terra cotta
  G                  B7
A baked heart to overflow
    C                Em
But you won't see me nowhere
     G     B7      Em Em G Bm
That is, until you go
    Em Em G Bm
You go

C7 B7

     Am      G         Bm
I'll be your well-worn jeans
   C         Bm       Em
We both know that you love me
    Am       G     Bm
But when you go outside
    C       Bm     B7
You throw a skirt above me

Em Em G Bm (x2)

  Am       G     Bm
I see your silhouette
C             Bm         Em
Cracking on a storefront window
    Am          G       Bm
But this town's not for you
         C             Bm   B7
It's the kind of dirty only I know

Em Em G Bm (x2)

      C7                 B7
We're sediments caked in place

    Em  F#m         G
I'm any bird in the hand
   C   Bm        G
Or any cliche in writer's block
     Em    F#m     G
Like every soldier man
       C       Bm      Em
You'll seal me under a rock

     C              Em
It's me, your terra cotta
  G                    B7
A brittle pot ready to fall
    C                Em
But you won't see me nowhere
     G     B7
That is, until you
C             Em
Call me terra cotta
  G                  B7
A baked heart to overflow
    C                Em
But you won't see me nowhere
     G     B7      Em Em G Bm
That is, until you go
Em Em G Bm
Go
Em Em G Bm
Go
Em Em G Bm
Go
