Lucy Kaplansky - Still Life chords

Capo III

Note: the song gets its airy feeling by using these "incomplete" (C) and (Am) chords:

C: 030020
Am: 002200
Fmaj7: 10321x

(C)Sadness is a little boy (Am)looking
Out the (C)window high above a (Am)city
Counting (Em)statues of people on the (Fmaj7)buildings
(Em)Thinking that the people are (Fmaj7)forever

He wants his (C)father to be a (Am)statue
On the (C)rooftop of his fatherless (Am)home
So that (Em)he can always (Fmaj7)see him
So that (Em)he will never (Fmaj7)leave him

Late at (C)night in the darkness of his (Am)dreaming
His father's (C)words fall down in a (Am)rain storm
And the (Em)words become hands that will (Fmaj7)guide him
Through his (Em)life in the world just be(Fmaj7)ginning

(C)You cannot (G)live in bronze or (Fmaj7)stone
(C)Make your (G)life in flesh and (Fmaj7)bone

(C)Stranded is a man no longer (Am)searching
For the (C)life had hoped for and i(Am)magined
Courting (Em)fear instead of a (Fmaj7)woman
Holding (Em)sorrow as his only com(Fmaj7)panion

Counting (C)days like his money in the (Am)markets
And watching (C)life from the window in his (Am)office
Maybe (Em)one day I'll have the (Fmaj7)courage
Maybe (Em)one day I'll sail across the (Fmaj7)ocean

But I feel (C)safe in the light of my com(Am)puter
(C)This is how I choose to (Am)live
Fixed in (Em)stone a man will (Fmaj7)wither
Running (Em)waters are the life of the (Fmaj7)river

(C)You cannot (G)live in bronze or (Fmaj7)stone
(C)Make your (G)life in flesh and (Fmaj7)bone
(G)Remember (C)me

(C)Frightened is an old man (Am)limping
Through the (C)park on a dark December (Am)day
He stands (Em)frozen at the base of a (Fmaj7)statue
And he (Em)hopes for a warm hand to (Fmaj7)help him

To(C)night he will dream that he is (Am)flying
Over (C)banks of a river he re(Am)members
His father's (Em)voice will echo all a(Fmaj7)round him
His father's (Em)hands will hold him in the (Fmaj7)sky

(C)Now I can sail across the (Am)ocean
(C)Now I will sail across the (Am)ocean
(Em)Now I am sailing across the (Fmaj7)ocean

(C)I cannot (G)live in bronze or (Fmaj7)stone
(C)I must (G)live as flesh and (Fmaj7)bone
(G)Remember (C)meRemember me
Remember me
