                [Intro]
 
A               Dsus2
 
A               Dsus2
 
 
[Verse]
 
A                             Dsus2
Poison oak, some boyhood bravery
       A                                Dsus2
When the telephone was a tin can on a string
     F#m                                            E
And I fell asleep with you still talking to me
                       A              Dsus2
You said you weren't afraid to die
 
 
A       Dsus2
 
 
    A                                       Dsus2
In polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
        A                                           Dsus2
Were you made ashamed, why'd you lock them in the drawer?
   F#m                                    E
Well I don't think that I ever loved you more
 
 
[Chorus]
 
                A
Than when you turned away
            Dsus2
When you slammed the door
          F#m                          E
When you stole a car drove, towards Mexico
          A                       Dsus2
And you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm
       F#m                     E
I was young enough, I still believed in war
 
 
A       Dsus2
 
A       Dsus2
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
E                                    F#m
But let the poets cry themselves to sleep
E                                                 F#m
And all their tearful words would turn back into steam
               A                Dsus2
But me, I'm a single cell on a serpent's tongue
               F#m                   E
And there's a muddy field where a garden was
                 A
And I'm glad you got away
                Dsus2
But I'm still stuck out here
                F#m                    E
My clothes are soaking wet from your brother's tears
 
 
A               Dsus2
 
A               Dsus2
 
 
[Bridge]
 
E                                       F#m
And I never thought this life was possible
E                                               F#m
You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for
              A                Dsus2
The end of paralysis I was a statuette
          F#m                  E
Now I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
            A                     Dsus2
And when I press the keys it all gets reversed
              F#m                E
The sound of loneliness makes me happier
 
 
 
[Outro]
 
A               Dsus2
 
A               Dsus2
 
A               Dsus2
 
A               Dsus2
