C6/9 Fsus2add4 F I'm travelling in some vehicle, sitting in some cafe Fsus2add4 F C A defector from the petty wars that shell shock love away C6/9 Fsus2add4 F There's comfort in melancholy, when there's no need to explain Fsus2add4 F C It's just as natural as the weather in this moody sky today Fadd9 C In our possessive coupling so much could not be expressed Fadd9 Gadd9add4 G9add4 So now I am returning to myself these things that you and I supressed Gadd9add4 Fadd9 C I see something of myself in everyone, just at this moment of the world Gadd9add4 Fadd9 As snow gathers like bolts of lace, waltzing on a ballroom girl Dm11 Eb6/9 You know it never has been easy whether you do or you do not resign Whether you travel the breadth of extremities or stick to some straighter line Now here's a man and a woman sitting on a rock They're either going to thaw out or freeze Listen... strains of Benny Goodman coming through the snow and the pinewood trees I'm porous with travel fever but you know I'm so glad to be on my own Still sometimes the slightest touch of a stranger can set up trembling in my bones I know no one's going to show me everything we all come and go unknown Each so deep and superficial, between the forceps and the stone Well I looked at the granite markers, those tributes to finality, to eternity And then I looked at myself here, chicken scratching for my immortality In the church they light the candles and the wax rolls down like tears There is the hope and the hopelessness, I've witnessed thirty years We're only particles of changes I know, I know orbiting around the sun But how can I have that point of view when I'm always bound and tied to someone White flags of winter chimneys waving trace against the moon In the mirrors of a modern bank from the window of a hotel room I'm travelling in some vehicle, I'm sitting in some cafe A defector from the petty wars until love suck me back that way CHORDS: Dm11: 222000 Eb6/9: 333000 C6/9: 002222 Fsus2add4: 555555 F: 557755 C: 002200 Fadd9: 555400 Gadd9add4: 777600 G9add4: 777000 NOTE: Once again, thanks to Howard Wright. I'm just tidying up his version so it could fit onto one page in my guitar book.
