**CAPO 2**

GHe cut your strings so that he could float
D- lit by lights, lifted by alcohol
Am- over acres of loving coast,
C Dfar away from your lonely ghost.
GNow he’s cool and all,
Dfloating anchorless. Ports of call:
Amwhere it’s fabulous, after all
C Dof this watching himself just crawl.
Em A C GThink you see him?
DHe’s not there,
Amthat’s just light
Cthat’s not yet dead.
Em A C GWait two hours
D Amand watch what’ll be there instead.
GWas he small and cold,
Dlike a ring you call up from home,
Amheld so tightly his limbs went numb,
C Dworn away between your finger and thumb?
GWell, now he’s bought and sold.
DCry his call number down the phone,
Amhe can’t hear you – he’s on his float,
C Dwaving down to the folks at home.
Em A C GThink you see him?
DHe’s not there,
Amthat’s just light
Cthat’s not yet dead.
Em A C GWait two hours
D Amand watch what’ll be there instead.
Em D C Am As the cameras love all of his faces,
G Em D Cthey hide all the traces of you in his heart.
Em G C Am Stand in line to hold forth on his grace,
Em Ambut you won’t even get a head-start,
C DGet a head start
G D Am C D G D Am C D
GAs his close-up comes
Dcascading down from above,
Amthe eyes of a nation in love
Care looking on all of their hopes
Dheld up.
GAnd the words that some
Dscreenwriter counted and chose,
Amand then set in their sequence and froze,
Cunfreeze on his tongue as he speaks
Dfor all of us
Gbut one.
DAnd honey, he’s gone.
AmAnd baby, he’s everyone’s.
C DIn the dark sky tonight,
Gcast your eyes
Don the dim light
Amthat he will become.
C DYou’re like everyone
Em A C GWho thinks they see him
DHe’s not there,
Amthat’s just light
Cthat’s not yet dead.
Em A C GWait two hours
D Amand watch what’ll be there instead.
