tuning: half step down

intro: D Em G
D                G
 can't find the forest
D                 G
 too stuck on the trees
D                  G
 but now you're invested,
                  D
 so i'm left pretending
                 G
 it's all i can see

D               G 
 i asked for a window
D           G
 to open my cell
D                 G
 you came as kaleidoscopes
                   D
 climbing, colliding
                  G
 you came as yourself

Em             Bm
 whether i'm ready
    A          Em
 is not up to me
                    Bm
 we go where we're ordered
     A
 to bunker or beach
Em                 A
 to the close of creation
                     D    G
 as shells and stories

D G
D           G 
 a spiral staircase
D           G
 Astoria, Queens
D                     G
 i claimed you while conscious
                    D
 got sleepy, forgetful,
                    G
 and left you in dreams

Em              Bm
 you folded your leg
        A            Em
 right foot to left knee
                    Bm
 you laughed at my back
      A                    Em
 said you couldn't believe
      A
 how violent I could be
                      
 just brushing my teeth

(this part is hard to figure out
 give me feedback if you can)
G  Em  Bm  
G  Em  Bm 
G  Em  A
 
D                  G
 drove from the service
D              G
 spent in my seat
D               G
 my woman beside me
                D
 a clutch of hydrangeas
                    G
 a strange sort of peace

D                     G 
 in loss, i'm made certain
D             G
 unveiled clarity
D                G
 it's you i will marry
                 D
 my lover, my family
                 G
 you always will be

Em         B 
 but every word
      A                  Em
 seemed too small to speak
                   Bm
 so we watched the sky reach
     A           Em
 ambivalent peaks
A
 we made our projections

 present and free

D Em G (x4)
