VERSE 1: C+2 C9 My old addiction F6 Fm6 Change the wiring in my brain Csus2/E Am9 So that when it turns the switches Dm9 G6sus4 Then I am not the same C+2 C9 So like the flowers toward the sun, I will follow F6 Fm6 And stretch myself out thin Csus2/E Am9 Like there's a part of me that's already buried Dm9 G6sus4 It sends me out into this wind oh VERSE 2: My old addiction Is a flood upon the land This tiny lifeboat can keep me dry But my weight is all that it can stand So when I try to leave just a little Just a splash to cool my feet Ah that trickle turns out fickle Fills my boat up five miles deep

VERSE 3: My old addiction Makes me crave only what is best Like these just-this-morning songbirds Craving upward from the nest These tiny birds outside my window Take my hand to be their Mom These open mouths would trust and swallow Anything that came along VERSE 4: Like my old addiction Now the other side of day As the springtime of my life's time Turns the other way If a swan can have a song I think I know that tune But the page is only scrawl And I am gone this afternoon CODA: C+2 C9 F6 Fm6 Csus2/E Am9 But the page is only scrawl Dm9 G6sus4 C+2 And I am gone this afternoon CHORDS: C+2 0x5400 C9 0x3400 F6 5x200x Fm6 5x100x Csus2/E 4x000x Am9 9x0400 Dm9 x2x435 G6sus4 7x0405 ---------------------------------- John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz) ----------------------------------
