A                                                  Aadd11
Poison oak, some boyhood bravery
         A                                                           Aadd11
When the telephone was a tin can on a string 
        Dmaj9                                                   E
And I fell asleep with you still talking to me
                             A                  Aadd11
You said you weren't afraid to die

A       Aadd11

    A                                                                  Aadd11
In polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
Were you made ashamed, 
why'd you lock them in the drawer? 
       Dmaj9                               E
Well I don't think that I ever loved you more
Than when you turned away
When you slammed the door
              Dmaj9                                     Bm11
When you stole a car drove, towards Mexico 
       A                                                       Aadd11
And you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm
        Dmaj9                            Bm11    
I was young enough, I still believed in war


A          Aadd11

E                                                                  Dmaj9
But let the poets cry themselves to sleep
             E                                                    Dmaj9
And all their tearful words would turn back into steam

           A                             Aadd11
But me, I'm a single cell on a serpent's tongue
                       Dmaj9                           Bm11
And there's a muddy field where a garden was
And I'm glad you got away 
But I'm still stuck out here
                Dmaj9                 Bm11
My clothes are soaking wet from your brother's tears

A       Aadd11
A       Asus2 
A       Aadd11

      E                                                                 Dmaj9
And I never thought this life was possible
        E                                                            Dmaj9 
You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for

          A                              Aadd11
The end of paralysis I was a statuette 
                Dmaj9                               Bm11
Now I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
         A                                                 Aadd11
And when I press the keys it all gets reversed
                     Dmaj9                             Bm11
The sound of loneliness makes me happier

A         Aadd11  Dmaj9 
A         Aadd11         Dmaj9 
A         Aadd11
A         Aadd11    A
