           C                                  F                                C
our margins and revisions, where we both first made our living
       C                                   F              G
in an alcove filled with sawdust, there a new light fell upon us
           C                    
hail the lepers, call the outcasts
         F              C
did we just not know to ask
Am                                    F
I could see you blazing through the frost
Am                             F     G
in amazing grace and a hacking cough

C F C 
C F G
C F C
Am F
Am F

took dictation, wrote it shorthand,
noone's sorrier than I am
I was young, that's no excuse
for the harm and the abuse
so what was it that you wanted
what would you've done if you had got it?
it was always ever gonna go so far
til someone thought to push you from the car

Am              F            C       G        Am
accept no imitation, baby, catch a collapsing star
      F               G           F       G       C
but it's your limitations that make you what you are



Our margins and revisions,
where we both first learned forgiveness
by the moonlight in the forest,
where our lives spread out before us
so you wrote me in a letter
you can stay gone but don't stay bitter
it was always ever gonna end the same
til someone thought to push you 'neath the train

took vacation in new orleans
and I held you on the shore there
splurged your words, confused your thoughts
spoke in riddles noone got
so what was it that we wanted
and God forbid if we had got it

it was always gonna have to go too far
til someone turned the light out at the bar

accept no imitation, baby, catch a collapsing star
oh it's our limitations, 
it's our limitations,
oh it's our limitations,
that make us what we are
