 Em                          C 
 You're not unlucky, you're just not very smart
  G                                             D
 These things will never leave you - they're as close as you can get
  Em                       C                         G             D
 To a blueprint for the future - but you can call it fate.
                 Em                                C
 It's like these days I have to write down almost every thought I've held,
     G                         D
 So scared I am becoming of forgetting how it felt,
    Em                                C
 And these fears they will unravel me one day,
                  G               D
 But still I am afraid.



 Em            C
 But I'm blessed -
         G            D
 Just to be, more or less -
 Em                            C                                  G         D
 Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left
 Em        C
 Oh blessed - 
         G            D
 Just to be, more or less -
 Em                            C                                   G        D
 Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left.



            Em
 Now you're blessed amongst all women,
       C
 Now a man who's very good,
     G                                 D
 He tells you how you feel until your life is understood,
        Em                                  C
 And he leads you through it arm in arm as though
                              G                D
 There was a map to guide the way.
           Em                                 C
 Now you write because you love him, now you write because he's kind,
       G                                 D
 You write so much, you look up and you wrote yourself behind,
            Em                         C                           G             D
 And you're standing in a labyrinth of paper and the map has been erased.



          Em       C
 But you're blessed -
         G            D
 Just to be, more or less -
  Em                            C                                 G            D
 Standing in the afterglow of rapture with the words the rapture left.
        Em      C
 Are you blessed?
         G             D
 Just to be, more or less?
           Em                             C                                G          D
 Now you're standing in the afterglow of rapture, but there is no rapture left.



instrumental part repeats Em C G D



     Em                              C
 Oh come, and we will celebrate the things that make us real,
       G                                D
 The things that break us open, and the things that make us feel
            Em                           C
 Like these accidental meetings up and partings of the way
                      G                                   D
 Are not so much our choice but in the blood of how we're made,
               Em                               C
 It's like the way I have to write down almost everything I see,
              G                                 D
 So that the record does obscure the thing the record used to be,
       Em
 And I know I'm not unlucky,
       C               G          D
 I was just born this way.
         Em C G D
 But I'm blessed.


        Em                            C
 Now a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisles,
      G                                D
 The baby born with teeth looks at its mother and it smiles,
          Em
 And we all fall down
                       C                 G           D
 Like wind blows through the paper forest.
       Em                           C
 And a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisles,
      G                                D
 The baby born with teeth looks at its mother and smiles,
          Em
 And we all fall down
                      C                 G           D
 As wind blows through the paper forest.
        Em                           C
 And a paper forest grows up in the supermarket aisle
     G                                      D
 Alarm clock fingers turn they're counting seconds like they're miles
            Em                              C                 G
 And you say, "wake up now, 'cause I can see no paper forest.
