[Verse]
N.C.
there's a picture that i found
N.C.
my first car in the falling snow
N.C.
seems like yesterday i drove down into low tide
N.C.
and isaac snapped a polaroid of me pretending i was sinking
N.C.
pressed against the glass, pleading
N.C.
i misplaced it but i'm looking

[Chorus]
            C         G                   C                           G
when we are young, if only we could see beyond our fears where we are free
            C          G                       C                       G
when we are lonely, if only we could know that in our stillness we are growing

[Verse]
                  C
all the portraits we collected
                       G
while we were running around in the desert
                  C
we were trying to seem fulfilled
               G
to rewrite our new york city narratives
                   C
but emily, we were utterly dejected
                            G
we took turns crying on the passenger side of america,
    C                                   G
too clouded to be empowered by towering redwoods

[Chorus]
            C        G
when did we lose the ancient truths?
                 C                       G
is it what we're born bending our bodies towards?
           C                         G
how can we spend our lives searching outside of ourselves
        C                                       G
for the inner knowledge of our oneness with the world?

[Bridge]
Am                        Bm
shervin, remember when my car finally quit?
     C                                    Bm
we'd drag our dirty clothes after dark to lavanderia
                  Am                  Bm
and wander graham ave. obsessing over singers we love
  C                                       Bm
i thought i was so alone but now i know i never was
       Am                    Bm
you've always been the jenny to my watson twins
     C                                Bm
can't land the harmony but we'll keep singing it
   Am                        Bm                                 C
no photographic artifact but here is something better than that

[Chorus]
            C         G                   C                           G
when we are young, if only we could see beyond our fears where we are free
            C          G                       C                       G
when we are lonely, if only we could know that in our stillness we are still growing
