God forbid you to listen to me now.
D~                                                    G ~

I'll never ask again.

D ~
It's funny, it's come right down to this.

I have to steal my time cause you won't give it up for free.
 D ~
I've been talking to the Moon all night, but the Stars won't say-
  G ~

I know you're kind of busy right now.

Been a day, but I haven't heard your call.

It's crazy that we just can't feel the time

And lay down for awhile.

D ~
I've been relaxing with the Wind all day.
                                G ~
But the Sky won't open up for me.
