Am                   C                           E
You caught me making eyes at the other boatmen's wives
                      G                                 Am
and heard me laughing louder at the jokes told by their daughters
                      C                      E
I'd set my course for land, but you well understand
                                              Am
it takes a steady hand to navigate adulterous waters
                         C                                 E
the propeller's spinning blades held acquaintance with the waves
                        G                       Am
as there's mistake I've made no rowing could outrun
                   C                            E
a cloth low on the mast like to say I've got no past
                                            Am
I'm nonetheless a librarian and secretary's son
                   C                      E
with tarnish on my brass and mildew on my glass
                          G                             Am
I'd never want someone so crass as to want someone like me
                          C                       E
but a few leagues off the shore, I bit a flashing lure
                                                    Am
and I assure you, it was not what I expecting it to be!
                   C                          E
I still taste it's kiss, that dull hook in my lip
               G                            Am
is a memory as useless as a rod without a reel
                  C                   E
to an anchor-ever-dropped-seasick-yet-still-docked
                                                   Am
captain spotted napping with his first mate at the wheel
                       C                       E
floating forgetfully along, with no need to be strong
                         G                                 Am
we keep our confessions long and when we pray we keep them short
                         C                        E
I drank a thimbleful of fire, I'm not ever coming back
       Am
Oh my god!
           C                     E
"I do not exist" we faithfully insist
                        G                            Am
while watching sink the heavy ship of everything we knew
                 C                        E
if ever you come near I'll hold up high a mirror

Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as you!
