difficulty: intermediate



                tuning: standard, CAPO 1st fret

intro: C Am7 F

C    Am7          F

can't find the forest

C     Am7          F

too stuck on the trees

C      Am7          F

but now you're invested,

                  C

so i'm left pretending

     Am7         F

it's all i can see

C      Am7      F 

i asked for a window

C   Am7     F

to open my cell

C       Am7       F

you came as kaleidoscopes

                   C

climbing, colliding

     Am7          F

you came as yourself

Dm             Am

whether i'm ready

    G          Dm

is not up to me

                    Am

we go where we're ordered

     G

to bunker or beach

Dm                 G

to the close of creation

                     C Am7  F

as shells and stories

C Am7 F

C   Am7     F 

a spiral staircase

C   Am7     F

Astoria, Queens

C        Am7           F

i claimed you while conscious

                    C

got sleepy, forgetful,

      Am7           F

and left you in dreams

Dm              Am

you folded your leg

        G            Dm

right foot to left knee

                    Am

you laughed at my back

      G                    Dm

said you couldn't believe

      G

how violent I could be

                      

just brushing my teeth

(this part is hard to figure out

give me feedback if you can)

F  Dm  Am

F  Dm  Am

F  Dm  G

C      Am7         F

drove from the service

C      Am7      F

spent in my seat

C      Am7       F

my woman beside me

                C

a clutch of hydrangeas

     Am7           F

a strange sort of peace

C       Am7           F 

in loss, i'm made certain

C     Am7     F

unveiled clarity

C     Am7        F

it's you i will marry

                 C

my lover, my family

    Am7          F

you always will be

Dm         Am 

but every word

      G                  Dm

seemed too small to speak

                   Am

so we watched the sky reach

     G           Dm

ambivalent peaks

G

we made our projections

present and free

C Am7 F (x4)
