Em C You're not unlucky, you're just not very smart
G D These things will never leave you - they're as close as you can get
Em C G D To a blueprint for the future - but you can call it fate.
Em C It's like these days I have to write down almost every thought I've held,
G D So scared I am becoming of forgetting how it felt,
Em C And these fears they will unravel me one day,
G D But still I am afraid.
Em C But I'm blessed -
G D Just to be, more or less -
Em C G D Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left
Em C Oh blessed -
G D Just to be, more or less -
EM C G D Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left.
Em Now you're blessed amongst all women,
C Now a man who's very good,
G D He tells you how you feel until your life is understood,
Em C And he leads you through it arm in arm as though
G D There was a map to guide the way.
Em c Now you write because you love him, now you write because he's kind,
G D You write so much, you look up and you wrote yourself behind,
Em C G D And you're standing in a labyrinth of paper and the map has been erased.
Em C But you're blessed -
G D Just to be, more or less -
Em C G D Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left.
EM C Are you blessed?
G D Just to be, more or less?
Em C G D Now you're standing in the afterglow of rapture, but there is no rapture left.
instrumental part repeats Em C G D
Em C Oh come, and we will celebrate the things that make us real,
G D The things that break us open, and the things that make us feel
Em C Like these accidental meetings up and partings of the way
G D Are not so much our choice but in the blood of how we're made,
Em C It's like the way I have to write down almost everything I see,
G D So that the record does obscure the thing the record used to be,
Em And I know I'm not unlucky,
C G D I was just born this way.
EM C G D But I'm blessed.
Em C Now a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisles,
G D The baby born with teeth looks at its mother and it smiles,
Em And we all fall down
C G D Like wind blows through the paper forest.
Em C And a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisles,
G D The baby born with teeth looks at its mother and smiles,
Em And we all fall down
C G D As wind blows through the paper forest.
Em C And a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisle
G D Alarm clock fingers turn they're counting seconds like they're miles
Em C G And you say, "wake up now, 'cause I can see no paper forest.
