every place that I have been through,

thanks for the skin, thanks for the bone",

Though I now slowly give it back

I still appreciate the loan.

Just tell me that you like me

in the same sentence as a mountain side.

'Cause it would be

such a relief to be objectified.

to sort through these thoughts of ours.

And the closest that I ever got
                C

        C
that nobody can know.
  G
Looking forth and looking back, 
     C
our vision can't extend 
   F
beyond the quaint vanishing points
     C
our bodies' recommend,
          G
and I'll help you move some furniture

somewhere it's never been before,

but the room's so small the dresser drawer
       C
won't let us get back out the door.

And you can't blame an empty boat 
              C             G     C   F  C
that's on a river to the sea.

in photographs, and diaries, and mirrors.
