1st verse: |||||| |||||| 099990 999900 |||||| |||||| A strange boy is weaving a |||||| 777777 |||||| course of grace and |||||| |||||| 555555 557755 |||||| |||||| havoc on a yellow skateboard |||||| 555555 |||||| through midday sidewalk |||||| |||||| |||||| 002200 005500 007700 |||||| |||||| |||||| traffic |||||| 099990 |||||| Just when I think he's |||||| 999900 |||||| foolish and childish |||||| 777777 |||||| and I want him to be |||||| |||||| 555555 557755 |||||| |||||| manly I catch my fool and my |||||| 555555 |||||| child needing love and |||||| |||||| |||||| 002200 005500 007700 |||||| |||||| |||||| understanding |||||| |||||| 555555 557755 |||||| |||||| what a strange strange boy |||||| |||||| 555555 557755 |||||| |||||| He still lives with his family |||||| |||||| 333333 335533 |||||| |||||| even the war and the Navy | | | | || |||||| |||||| 0 12 12 10 00 099700 077500 | | | | || |||||| |||||| Couldn't bring him to ma- turity Additional verses: He keeps referring back to school days And clinging to his child Fidgeting and bullied His crazy wisdom holding onto somthing wild He asked me to be patient Well I failed "Grow up!" I cried And as the smoke was clearing, he said "Give me one good reason why!" What a strange, strange boy He sees the cars as sets of waves Sequences of mass and space He sees the damage in my face We got high on travel And we got drunk on alcohol And on love the strongest poison and medicine of all See how that feeling comes and goes Like the pull of moon on tides Now I am surf rising Now parched ribs of sand at his side What a strange, strange boy I gave him clothes and jewelry I gave him my warm body I gave him power over me A thousand glass eyes were staring In a cellar full of antique dolls I found an old piano And sweet chords rose up in waxed New England halls While the borders were snoring Under crisp white sheets of curfew |||||| 557755 |||||| We were newly lovers then We were |||||| 555555 |||||| fire in the stiff-blue-haired |||||| 099990 |||||| house rules |||||| |||||| |||||| |||||| 999900 777777 557755 555555 |||||| |||||| |||||| |||||| Repeat intro and fade out
