E5 C#5 B5 When am I supposed to say so long?
E5 C#5 B5When am I supposed to say so long?
B5 F#5 C#5 B5 EWhen I fall in love 'fore dusk is dawn
E F#5 C#5 B5 EWhen you take my hand across the lawn
E F#5 C#5 B5 EWith the eyes so sweet they're like a fawn
F#5 C#5 B5 ERed elephant is wet & long...
E5 C#5 B5How am I supposed to wash you off?
E5 C#5 B5Rungs of bad poems I've hacked & coughed
B5 F#5 C#5 B5 EBut I have to spare a breath for you
E F#5 C#5 B5 EWhich I'll take, before we make anew
F#5 C#5 B5 EOur hearts will take a stroll for two
F#5 C#5 B5 EOur feet will take the avenue
F#5 C#5 B5 E & Walk in unison, so cute
F#5 C#5 B5 ERed elephant is turning blue
E5 C#5 B5 Why am I here when you're over there?
Let's meet at the fountains In Dundas Square Who am I supposed to be with you? I'll wait 'til you say & pretend I knew
B5 F#5 C#5 B5 EBecause if it's true that walls can talk
How mine would brag of tears I've sobbed When thinking of the way we walked Along the paths of sideway chalk Forever under ticking clock Where you & I are free to flock
E5 C#5 B5What can I write when I know it's wrong?
Slapping my knee to my own damn song Where can we go when the sinking stops? To the pit of my chest As it drops and drops...
F#5 C#5 B5 E But your head upon my chest, it breathes
And my fingers through your hair they weave And your shoulders are the perfect sea In which I get lost invariably Oh the elephant is up to sea If it meets the peach fish underneath & When I am you and you are me We are stirred as spoons in lover's tea
G# F# EWhoa oh oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa
The chord changes come fast and furious at the end, but thats about it.
