Capo on 3 C It starts with you G F on a mattress in your parents' old room , C clipping your toenails into the room F like the room will fade and you will move C onto other rooms Em and you will go G to other places. C Then the wedding, G Then the woman passed out F in the driver's seat C at the order board at White Castle. F We woke her up and she went C Em 'round to the pick up window G like she knew exactly where she was. C Then I wept G with my face in your night shirt, F trying hard as hell to say C F "until death separates us," C loosening the skin on your breastbone, E I painted your nails G and you sleep while I write all this down. C There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye Am Will you still remember me well C F If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E G my dead line Gemini C G When we're on different sides of the globe F I thought we'd keep our veins tangled C like a pair of mic cables, F C And if there ain't enough slack to reach Em that we'd solder them together G and across oceans they'd stretch. C G Our faces reflected in separate windshields F and all our body hair pricked up C an elephant eyelash. F C Should we be tempted by thief or saint E it seems I leave and you stay G to crawl the cage and curse. C But don't regret the done dirt, G there is no life plan set, F you just swallow the cold C F and follow your breath until death. C Now even if the will to sleep persists Em G I can't 'cause a harsh cloth, it grazes my blisters. C There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye Am Will you still remember me well C F If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E G my dead line Gemini C G Today I fell asleep in a bath of hair. F C Hair that once sprouted from my own F white wet chalk follicles. C I swallow a coal Em and follow my breath G and I did it with the grapefruit soap thinking of you. C G Bathed, shaved, and oiled, F C your legs are two skinny dolphins swimming F C between the mattress and the layers of bedding Em G turning in your drug dry sleep. C G When I ask you to kiss my pulse F C you offer to start the shower. F C I want a verb and you give me a noun. Em G What do you dream up while I tongue you down? C There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye Am Will you still remember me well C F If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E G my dead line Gemini C You know my build. You know my size. G The degree to which my eyes Em are astigmatic.
