Am C E You caught me making eyes at the other boatmen's wives G Am and heard me laughing louder at the jokes told by their daughters C E I'd set my course for land, but you well understand Am it takes a steady hand to navigate adulterous waters C E the propeller's spinning blades held acquaintance with the waves G Am as there's mistake I've made no rowing could outrun C E a cloth low on the mast like to say I've got no past Am I'm nonetheless a librarian and secretary's son C E with tarnish on my brass and mildew on my glass G Am I'd never want someone so crass as to want someone like me C E but a few leagues off the shore, I bit a flashing lure Am and I assure you, it was not what I expecting it to be! C E I still taste it's kiss, that dull hook in my lip G Am is a memory as useless as a rod without a reel C E to an anchor-ever-dropped-seasick-yet-still-docked Am captain spotted napping with his first mate at the wheel C E floating forgetfully along, with no need to be strong G Am we keep our confessions long and when we pray we keep them short C E I drank a thimbleful of fire, I'm not ever coming back Am Oh my god! C E "I do not exist" we faithfully insist G Am while watching sink the heavy ship of everything we knew C E if ever you come near I'll hold up high a mirror Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as you!
