I just added the complete lyrics to this one, and corrected one or two wrong chords
Artist: Okkervil River
Capo at 7th Fret
No one wants to hear about your 97th tear,
so dry your eyes or let it go
uncried, my dear. I am all out of love to mouth into your ear, and not above
GAEmEm* G* A*
letting a love song disappear before it's written.
And no one wants a tune about the 100th luftballoon that was seen
shooting from the window of your room, to be a spot against the sky's
colossal gloom and land, deflated, in some neighbor state that's strewn with
8 Chinese brothers; well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide
and sitting higher than the others,
swinging his arms.
You would probably die before you shot up 9 miles high
Your eyes dilated as light played upon the sight
Of TVC16 as it sings you goodnight
Relaxed as hell and locked up in cell 45
I hope you're feeling better
51st way to leave your lover
Admittedly, it doesn't seem to be as gentle or as clean as all the others
Even a scars all in the after hours of some Greenpoint bar
I told you, I can't listen, baby, 'bout the 4th time you were a lady
and how your forthrightness betrayed a secret shyness
Stripped away by days of being hailed as "your highness"
And what's new pussycat, as you were once a lionness
They cut your claws out
Kitten, not everyone's keen on lighting candle 17,
the party's done, the cake's all gone, the plates are clean
The chauffeur's near and from the cheerless mezzanine
And in just one year, this straight world could pay to see
what they have been missing
You were caught kissing 8 chinese brothers
Well, there's a reason why the last is smiling wide and sitting higher than the others
Staking with charm
And he says, "Lets get lost, let them send out alarms
He says, "Let's get crossed out and come to harm"
"Lets make the world's stupidest stand and truly mean it
Lets hit the limit of loss over lover's arms
No, lets exceed it"
