Capo on 3 C5 It starts with you G5 F5 on a mattress in your parents' old room , C5 clipping your toenails into the room F5 like the room will fade and you will move C5 onto other rooms E5 and you will go G5 to other places. C5 Then the wedding, G5 Then the woman passed out F5 in the driver's seat C5 at the order board at White Castle. F5 We woke her up and she went C5 E5 'round to the pick up window G5 like she knew exactly where she was. C5 Then I wept G5 with my face in your night shirt, F5 trying hard as hell to say C5 F5 "until death separates us," C5 loosening the skin on your breastbone, E5 I painted your nails G5 and you sleep while I write all this down. C5 There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye A5 Will you still remember me well C5 F5 If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E5 G5 my dead line Gemini C5 G5 When we're on different sides of the globe F5 I thought we'd keep our veins tangled C5 like a pair of mic cables, F5 C5 And if there ain't enough slack to reach E5 that we'd solder them together G5 and across oceans they'd stretch. C5 G5 Our faces reflected in separate windshields F5 and all our body hair pricked up C5 an elephant eyelash. F5 C5 Should we be tempted by thief or saint E5 it seems I leave and you stay G5 to crawl the cage and curse. C5 But don't regret the done dirt, G5 there is no life plan set, F5 you just swallow the cold C5 F5 and follow your breath until death. C5 Now even if the will to sleep persists E5 G5 I can't 'cause a harsh cloth, it grazes my blisters. C5 There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye A5 Will you still remember me well C5 F5 If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E5 G5 my dead line Gemini C5 G5 Today I fell asleep in a bath of hair. F5 C5 Hair that once sprouted from my own F5 white wet chalk follicles. C5 I swallow a coal E5 and follow my breath G5 and I did it with the grapefruit soap thinking of you. C5 G5 Bathed, shaved, and oiled, F5 C5 your legs are two skinny dolphins swimming F5 C5 between the mattress and the layers of bedding E5 G5 turning in your drug dry sleep. C5 G5 When I ask you to kiss my pulse F5 C5 you offer to start the shower. F5 C5 I want a verb and you give me a noun. E5 G5 What do you dream up while I tongue you down? C5 There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye A5 Will you still remember me well C5 F5 If I don't get to two-o-o-five? E5 G5 my dead line Gemini C5 You know my build. You know my size. G5 The degree to which my eyes E5 are astigmatic.
