                Intro: D

Em
Down by the lake
We were overturning pebbles
                                  D
And upending all the animals alight
Em
And I took a drag
From your cigarette and pinched it
'Tween my finger and my thumb
          D
Till it died
        Em                     D
And the sun burned low on the radio
Em
Say that you will
Say you will or will you won't
Or you whatever you prevaricate
            D
Your whole life, don't you?
Em
This much I can say:
I would've waited till the oceans
Fell Away and all the sunken cities
                 D
Would reveal themselves to you
         Em
But you won't, will you?
              D
Because you never do
        Em
And the sun burned through
               D
Sweet as honeydew
    Bm
And I
A                         G
Seventeen and terminally fey
 F#m                              Em
I wrote it down and threw it all away
                               G
Never gave a thought to what I'd paid
    Bm
And you
A                             G
Sibylline, reclining in your pew
F#m                             Em
You tattered me, you tethered me to you
                                G
The things you would and wouldn't do
                                 D
To tell the truth I never had a clue

Em   D

Em
Now we arise
To curse those young suburban villains
                                          D
And their ill-begotten children from the lawn
Em
Come to me now
And on this station wagon window
Set the ghost of your two footprints
                 D
That they might haunt me when you're gone
             Em
And when the light broke dawn
          D
You were forever gone
        Em
But I remember you, you were full
                              D
You were full and sweet as honeydew
   Bm
And I
A                        G
Seventeen and terminally fey
F#m                            Em
I wrote it down and threw it all away
                           G
And never gave a thought to what I paid
     Bm        A                         G
And you all sibylline, reclining in your pew
F#m                                  Em
You tattered me, you tethered me to you
                                  G
The things you would and wouldn't do
                               D
You noticed how I never had a clue
Never had a clue
You were full and sweet as honeydew
You were full and sweet as honeydew
