G    D   Em
C    C   Am


    I'll be the grapes fermented,
D                      Em               C
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit

like a perfect gentlemen

    I'll be the fire escape that's
D            Em                   C
bolted to the ancient brick Where you will sit

and contemplate your day

Instrumental  (Repeat intro)

G    D   Em
C    C   Am


    I'll be the waterwings that
D                    Em              C
save you if you start drowning In an open tab when

your judgement's on the brink

    I'll be the phonograph that
D                  Em                   C
plays your favorite Albums back as your lying there
drifting off to sleep... Drifting off to sleep...

    I'll be the platform shoes and
 D                   Em                                      C
undo what heredity's done to you... You won't have to strain

to look into my eyes

    I'll be your winter coat
D                           Em                            C
buttoned and zipped straight to the throat With the collar up so

you won't catch a cold


Em                                 C                                   
    I want to take you far from the cynics in this town
And kiss you on the mouth
      Em                 C
We'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene,
        G              Em
Start a brand new colony
       Em                       C                                   			G
Where everything will change, We'll give ourselves new names
identities erased
    Em                C                      		        G
The sun will heat the grounds Under our bare feet in this
brand new colony,  this brand new colony


Em     C           G                        D
Everything will change...

Em     C           G                        D

Em     C           G                        D
Everything will change...

Em     C           G                        D

[end on  Em]
