This is perfect, i was able to watch a video of John playing a solo version of the song
i'm positive this is the way he plays it. enjoy.
So you donít get to be a saint
Martyrs never last this long
Guess I'll never be the one
To defeat desire in song
Here's a marker
Here's my naked skin
Our 'exhibit A'
Put a small x where I lost my way
All the actors broke their legs
And itís to late to postpone
The producerís getting high
And the audience went home
Smile and take your awkward bow
Turn and stumble off the stage
Let the rain be your applause
Every encore sooth your rage
Squint with one eye
Hum a show-tune wait
For your right to say
oh thatís where you must have lost your way
Megaphones in helicopters squeal ďhey are you okay?Ē
Searchlights circle, where we lost our way
All our accidents were purposeful and felt
Stripped of providence or any way to tell
But our intentions were intangible and sweet
Sick with simple math and shy discoveries
Piled up against our impending defeat.
you don't get to be a saint the dead man says
you get to warm your hands for a moment
you get to catch your breath and say one thing
So you don't get to be a saint. Martyrs never last this long.
Guess I'll never be the one to defeat desire in song. Here's a
marker, here's my naked skin, our Exhibit A. Put a small x
where I lost my way. All the actors broke their legs, and it's
too late to postpone. The producer's getting high, and the
audience went home. Smile and take your awkward bow.
Turn and stumble off the stage. Let the rain be your applause,
every encore soothe your rage. Squint with one eye, hum a
show-tune, and wait for your ride to say, "Oh, that's where
you must have lost your way." Megaphones in helicopters
squeal, "Hey, are you okay?" as searchlights circle where we
lost our way. All our accidents went purposeful and fell,
stripped of providence or any way to tell that our intentions
were intangible and sweet. Sick with simple math and shy
discoveries, piled up against our impending defeat.
