HALF MOON CAFE (Emily Saliers)
------------------------------
[Actually in Bb; capo 1.]
[It might be easier to play this with the high E tuned down to D;
 then play A/C# as x42222 and E as 022102.]

 
D     A/C#     Bm7     E-F#m-G#m
[intro; play four times]
 
       D            A/C#    Bm7         E-F#m-G#m
At the Half Moon Cafe, we drank to our lives
     D          A/C#     Bm7    E-F#m-G#m
Like pseudo-believers in love
                       D            A/C#           Bm7
We've been through our holes in the walls and the dives
          Bm7            G(9)          G(9)           Bm   E
Where you drink to recall what you once had a vision of
 
       C#dim        C#dim       C#dim   C#dim
And we talk of our lives in a prison
          Bm             Bm/A       Bm/G#   E
Though we both know it's better to be
A           A/G      D     Bm7
Safe within our indecision
     A                     A     E   E-F#m-G#m
Than taking the risk to be free
 
And you were to be a great poet
And I'd find my fame in song
But we somehow saw failure more closely
Than fame all along
 
And now you manage a hamburger stand
And I haven't found steady work yet
And we meet here to talk and pretend
That we know no regret
 
                Dsus9       E                 A
But how much is chance, how much would you decide?
A           Dsus9         Dsus9    Gmaj9
How much is murder of our dreams
    Gmaj9      Bm   Bm   E   E
How much is suicide?
 
So you ask of my latest Top 40
And I ask of your latest great fiction
As I step outside I see that the moon is full
I have to laugh at the contradiction
 
Well, at least we can laugh at our dreams
Though it's really much more bitter than sweet
Sometimes through all of this fragmentation
I imagine what it feels to be complete
 
But how much is chance, how much would you decide?
How much is murder of our dreams
How much is suicide?
 
[Repeat intro chords with humming; end on x02200-x02220.]
