Okkervil River Love To A Monster Overboard & Down EP Capo 3rd fret D F#m Bm Lover, now that you've left me, I'm glad you're unlovely. G D A Becuase if you could take all the heat in your heart and just hang it from you, D F#m Bm I wouldn't be able to bear the way you cannot love me. G A D It's much easier of me make a monster out of you. D F#m Bm And so here I go, substituting the glow from your temples, G D A all our sighs and our trembles, and each last letter sent you D F#m Bm from the cheap little pen of this weak little man- the one singing G A D - out his jangling, ringing and hopefully stinging attack upon you. D F#m Bm Yeah, so here I go, just exploding the hope we'll be speaking G D A some day, years from now, seeking friendship and understanding. D F#m Bm Yeah, I hope you get angry, and hurt, and have the hardest of landings. G A D And I hope your new man thinks of me when he sees what a number I did on you. D F#m Bm I grow tired of this song. Turn my eyes to the blonde in the bleachers. G D A She's a lovely young creature. I think she's seeking adventure. D F#m Bm I think she's ready to see that the world isn't so sweet or so tender. G A D I won't break her, just bend her, and make her into my new ringer for you. D F#m Bm I stay in the same comfy town, write the same old songs down, drive the same streets, G D A seek the same sense of dull peace, whisper the same sweet words to the chippies. D F#m Bm The same walk by the road and where the same muddy snow's finally leaving, G A D But i'll fight off the spring; I don't want lovely things,I don't want the earth new.
