[Verse 1]
D AShe said it’s hard for me to explain to you the brightness of the light,
DI can still remember when my life was like that
A DA real and painless beauty I remember as a kid, when I thought that I knew everything, and in a way I did
D G F#m A D G F#m AShe was a virgin then, a child in a million, with deep round hazel eyes of blazing intuition
D G F#m AShe called me over to her side and said will you please listen
D G F#m AI want to show you something, something I’ve just written
G G F#m DAnd I’m calling it Poetry And Jazz
[Verse 2]
D A DShe watched her happy family turn to a broken home, her father left with someone else, her mother on her own
A DHer fourteenth birthday her mother spent in tears, she celebrated on her own her adolescent years
D G F#m A D G F#m AIt was hell then, caught in the crossfire of an emotional triangle she couldn’t keep together
D G F#m AI held her softly and she sobbed upon my shoulder
D G F#m ASaying as you are the closest thing that I’ve got to a brother
G G F#m DExplain to me, why is life so sad
[Verse 3]
D A DSixteen was better, cause sixteen was boys, makeup, parties, alcohol and clothes
A DAnd saying to your boyfriend, come on get out of bed, its 3 o’clock in the afternoon, my mother’s coming back
D G F#m A D G F#m AAnd she smiled then, her eyes filled with laughter, she didn’t know if it was love but it didn’t really matter
D G F#m AShe called me on the phone and said get this big brother
D G F#m AI’ve just got rid of one boyfriend and got myself another
G G F#m DAnd listen, this one drives a Jag
[Verse 4]
D A DShe left school and boyfriend for university, three years of study for an arts degree
A DHer clothes were outrageous, her hair was many colours, her work was radical and so were her ideas
D G F#m A D G F#m AShe said this is brilliant, this place is heaven – on a score of 1 to 10 I’d give this place 11
D G F#m A D G F#m AIt kicks you up the arse and it fires you with ambition, I often used to feel as if my life was just a prison
G G F#m DNow I realise it isn’t quite that bad
[Verse 5]
D A DI was invited to an exhibition a little while ago to an art gallery in Paris where she has a studio
A DShe looked sophisticated, she was wearing a bronze tan, and she’d sold all her work for some outrageous sum
D G F#m AAnd I looked at her and I started laughing
D G F#m AI said you’re supposed to be an artist, you’re supposed to be suffering
D G F#m AAnd she just smiled back and she pointed to this picture
D G F#m AOf a young girl around which she’d written out this poem
G G F#m DShe’d shown me once, Poetry And Jazz
[Verse 6]
D A DMy name is Angela, I am 12 years old, I’ve given up on working hard and doing as I’m told
A DI see a child psychologist who’s spotted in my head a recipe for delinquency or something just as bad
D G F#m A D G F#m AAnd I’ll fight for my independence, I see the world in another way to my teacher and my parents
D G F#m A D G F#m AMy priorities are different and my life is not as aimless, I am not disruptive, I am not dangerous
G G F#m DI've rhythm and purpose, like Poetry and Jazz
[Verse 7]
D AShe said it’s hard for me to explain to you the brightness of the light,
DI can still remember when my life was like that
A DA real and painless beauty I remember as a kid when I thought that I knew everything, and in a way I did
