Mount Eerie – Now Only chords

F Em C

[Verse 1]
F CI remember looking around a hospital waiting room
F CFull of people all absorbed in their own personal catastrophes
F CAll reading books like Being Mortal, all with a look in their eyes
GAnd I remember still feeling like, "No, no one can understand"
"No, my devastation is unique" [Chorus]
CBut people get cancer and die
GPeople get hit by trucks and die
FPeople just living their lives
Get erased for no reason
Em GWith the rest of us watching from the side
CAnd some people have to survive
GAnd find a way to feel lucky to still be alive
FTo sleep through the night
[Verse 2]
Em G FI wrote down all the details of how my house fell apart
FHow the person I loved got killed by a bad disease
Out of nowhere for no reason and me living in the blast zone
AmWith our daughter and etcetera
I made these songs
CAnd the next thing I knew I was standing in the dirt
Under the desert sky at night outside Phoenix
AmAt a music festival that had paid to fly me in
To play these death songs to a bunch of young people on drugs
CStanding in the dust next to an idling bus
With Skrillex inside and the sound of subwoofers in the distance
AmI had stayed up til three
AmTalking to Weyes Blood and Father John Misty
About songwriting in the backstage bungalows
CEating fruit and jumping on the bed like lost children
Exploding across the earth in a self-indulgent all-consuming
AmWreck of ideas that blot out the stars
To be still alive felt so absurd [Chorus]
CPeople get cancer and die
GPeople get hit by trucks and die
FPeople just living their lives get erased for no reason
Em GWith the rest of us averting our eyes
[Interlude] C G F [Bridge]
Em CWhen I was leaning on Skrillex's tour bus waiting for the hotel shuttle in the middle of the night
AmI barely knew who I was
EmI looked up and saw Orion wielding a club and a shield
And there you were again:
GMajestic dead wife
AmAs my grief becomes calcified, frozen in stories
And in these songs I keep singing, numbing it down
GThe unsingable real memories of you
And the feral eruptions of sobbing
F Em CThese waves hit less frequently
F Em CThey thin and then they are gone
F Em CYou are gone and then your echo is gone
F Em CAnd then the crying is gone
CAnd what is left but this merchandise?
[Interlude] F Em C [Outro]
F Em F Em CThis is what my life feels like now
F EmLike I got abruptly dropped off by the side of the road
CIn the middle of a long horrible ride
F Em C FIn a hot van that was too full of confident chattering dudes
G C F Em CAnd the sound of tires receding
G F EmTaking in the night air I say
C"Now only"
