A               Aadd11
A               Aadd11


A                           Aadd11
Poison oak, some boyhood bravery
     A                                 Aadd11
When the telephone was a tin can on a string 
    Aadd11/F#                               E
And I fell asleep with you still talking to me
                  A              Aadd11
You said you weren't afraid to die


A       Aadd11


   A                                      Aadd11
In polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
     A                                                                 
Were you made ashamed, 
                           Aadd11
why'd you lock them in the drawer? 
     Aadd11/F#                           E
Well I don't think that I ever loved you more
             A 
Than when you turned away
          Aadd11
When you slammed the door
         Aadd11/F#                  Bm11
When you stole a car drove, towards Mexico 
       A                                   Aadd11
And you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm
      Aadd11/F#               Bm11    
I was young enough, I still believed in war


A        
Asus2     
A   
Aadd11/F# 

 A
Asus2
 A 
Aadd11/F# 
A          Aadd11


E                                   Aadd11/F#  
But let the poets cry themselves to sleep
             E                                   Aadd11/F#                   
And all their tearful words would turn back into steam


         A                     Aadd11
But me, I'm a single cell on a serpent's tongue
              Aadd11/F#            Bm11
And there's a muddy field where a garden was
                  A
And I'm glad you got away 
                     Add11
But I'm still stuck out here
               Aadd11/F#              Bm11
My clothes are soaking wet from your brother's tears


A       Aadd11
A       Asus2 
A       Aadd11


    E                                  Aadd11/F#                             
And I never thought this life was possible
       E                              Aadd11/F#                              
You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for


        A                    Aadd11
The end of paralysis I was a statuette 
        Aadd11/F#                Bm11
Now I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
         A                            Aadd11
And when I press the keys it all gets reversed
              Aadd11/F#          Bm11
The sound of loneliness makes me happier


A         Aadd11   
A         Aadd11         
A         Aadd11
A         Aadd11    A
