Holland, 1945 Acoustic
by Neutral Milk Hotel
(capo on the 1st) - not necessary, but that's how I like it

Cadd9                   G
The only girl I've ever loved
Cadd9                      G                      
Was born with roses in her eyes
Cadd9                    G
But then they buried her alive
            D
One evening 1945
Cadd9         D             G
With just her sister at her side
         D                Cadd9
And only weeks before the guns
             D         G
All came and rained on everyone
            D             Cadd9
Now she's a little boy in Spain
        D                  G
Playing pianos filled with flames
         D                Cadd9
On empty rings around the sun
            D                Cadd9        G
All sing to say my dream has come

                Cadd9         G   
But now we must pick up every piece
       Cadd9           G
Of the life we used to love
        Cadd9             
Just to keep ourselves
   G                     D
At least enough to carry on

Cadd9                      G
And now we ride the circus wheel
Cadd9                             G
With your dark brother wrapped in white
Cadd9                  G
Says it was good to be alive
           D               Cadd9
But now he rides a comet's flame
            D           G
He won't be coming back again
                D             Cadd9
The earth looks better from a star
              D                   G
That's right above from where you are
          D                Cadd9
He didn't mean to make you cry
                 D                G
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
         D                 Cadd9
On empty rings around your heart
               D                 Cadd9         G
The world just screams and falls apart

                Cadd9         G
But now we must pick up every piece
       Cadd9           G
Of the life we used to love
        Cadd9
Just to keep ourselves
    G                    D
At least enough to carry on

                      Cadd9  G
And here's where your mother sleeps
                Cadd9           G             D
And here is the room where your brothers were born
           Cadd9  G
Indentions in the sheets
                        Cadd9           G       D
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
            Cadd9  G       Cadd9 G
And it's so sad to see the world agree
            Cadd9            G               D      
That they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
             Cadd9                 D              G
All when I'd want to keep wine and roses in their eyes
