Sufjan Stevens - Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us chords

      
Very easy and straight-forward for most beginners. Song is in 3/4 time so strum/pick accordingly!
These chords aren't in the same key as the song, but you can fiddle with moving 
them half or whole tones up/down to get it right, or to get it so you can sing 
comfortably with it :)
Enjoy!

D BmThinking outrageously I write in cursive
G Em I hide in my bed with the lights on the floor
D BmWearing three layers of coats and leg warmers
G EmI see my own breath on the face of the door
D BmOh I am not quite sleeping
G EmOh I am fast in bed
D BmThere on the wall in the bedroom creeping
G EmI see a wasp with her wings outstretched
D BmNorth of Savanna we swim in the palisades
G EmI come out wearing my brother's red hat
D BmThere on his shoulder my best friend is bit seven times
G EmHe runs washing his face in his hands
D BmOh how I meant to tease him
G EmOh how I meant no harm
D BmTouching his back with my hand I kiss him
G EmI see the wasp on the length of my arm
-Instrumental Interlude-
D Bm G Em DOh great sights upon this state! Hallelujah!
D Bm G Em D Wonders bright, and rivers, lake. Hallelujah!
D Bm G Em DTrail of Tears and Horseshoe Lake. Hallelujah!
(We were in love we were in love, palisades palisades, I can wait I can wait)
D Bm G Em Dtrusting things beyond mistake. Hallelujah!
(We were in love we were in love, palisades palisades, I can wait I can wait)
D BmWe were in love. We were in love.
GPalisades! Palisades!
EmI can wait. I can wait.
D Bm G Em DLamb of God, we sound the horn. Hallelujah!
(We were in love we were in love, palisades palisades, I can wait I can wait)
D Bm G Em DTo us your ghost is born. Hallelujah!
(We were in love we were in love, palisades palisades, I can wait I can wait)
D Bm GI can't explain the state that I'm in
Em DThe state of my heart, he was my best friend
Bm GInto the car, from the back seat
Em DOh admiration in falling asleep
Bm GAll of my powers, day after day
Em DI can tell you, we swaggered and swayed
Bm GDeep in the tower, the prairies below
Em DI can tell you, the telling gets old
Bm GTerrible sting and terrible storm
Em DI can tell you the day we were born
Bm GMy friend is gone, he ran away
Em DI can tell you, I love him each day
Bm GThough we have sparred, wrestled and raged
Em DI can tell you I love him each day
Bm GTerrible sting, terrible storm
Em ...DI can tell you...
