I just added the complete lyrics to this one, and corrected one or two wrong chords Artist: Okkervil River Song: Plus Ones Capo at 7th Fret Intro: D D G Em G No one wants to hear about your 97th tear, Em G so dry your eyes or let it go A Em G A Em uncried, my dear. I am all out of love to mouth into your ear, and not above G A Em Em* G* A* letting a love song disappear before it's written. D G Em G And no one wants a tune about the 100th luftballoon that was seen Em G A Em G shooting from the window of your room, to be a spot against the sky's A Em G A colossal gloom and land, deflated, in some neighbor state that's strewn with Em Em G A 99 others. Em A D A Em 8 Chinese brothers; well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide G A and sitting higher than the others, Em G A swinging his arms. D G Em G You would probably die before you shot up 9 miles high Em G A Your eyes dilated as light played upon the sight Em G A Of TVC16 as it sings you goodnight Em G A Relaxed as hell and locked up in cell 45 Em Em G A I hope you're feeling better Em A 51st way to leave your lover D A Em G A Admittedly, it doesn't seem to be as gentle or as clean as all the others Em G A Even a scars all in the after hours of some Greenpoint bar D G Em G I told you, I can't listen, baby, 'bout the 4th time you were a lady Em G A and how your forthrightness betrayed a secret shyness Em G A Stripped away by days of being hailed as "your highness" Em G A And what's new pussycat, as you were once a lionness Em Em G A They cut your claws out D G Em G Kitten, not everyone's keen on lighting candle 17, Em G A the party's done, the cake's all gone, the plates are clean Em G A The chauffeur's near and from the cheerless mezzanine Em G A And in just one year, this straight world could pay to see Em Em G A what they have been missing Em A You were caught kissing 8 chinese brothers D A Em G A Well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide and sitting higher than the others Em G A Staking with charm Em A And he says, "Lets get lost, let them send out alarms Em A He says, "Let's get crossed out and come to harm" Em A "Lets make the world's stupidest stand and truly mean it Em A Lets hit the limit of loss over lover's arms Em No, lets exceed it"
