Does he kiss yourFm eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head? And does heC sing to you incessantly from the place between your bed and wall? Does heFm walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes? LookingC down every few steps to pretend he walks with you? Does heFm know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched? And does heC cry through broken sentences like "I love you far too much"? BmDoes he lay Eawake listeAning to your Dbreath? BmWorried that Eyou smoke too Amany cigaDrettes? Is heE coughing now on aFm bathroom floor? For everyE speck of tile there are aFm thousand more That you won'tE ever see But mustA holdE insideD yourself EeternalFmly C F C I drug yourFm ghost across the country and we plotted out my death In everyC city, memories would whisper "Here is where you rest" I was dFmetermined in Chicago But I dug my teeth into my knees And IC settled for a telephone Sang into your machine Fm"You are my sunshine, My only Csunshine. FmYou are my sunshine My only Csunshine"

IFm kissed a girl with a broken jaw That her father gave to her She had eyesC bright enough to burn me They reminded me of yours And in aFm story told she was a little girl In a red-rouge, sun-bruised field And there wereC rows of ripe tomatoes Where a secret was concealed And itFm rose like thunder Clapped under ourC hands And itFm stretched for centuries To a diary entry'sC end where I wrote Fm"You make me happy (WHAT?) When the skies are Cgray FmYou make me happy (WHAT?) When skies are Cgray and gray and gray" Well the Bmclock's heart itE hangs insideA its openD chest With handsBm stretched towards theE calendarA hanging iDtself But IE will not weep for thoseFm dying days For all theE ones who've left there are aFm few that stayed And theyE found me here andA pulled meE from theD grass WhereE I was lFmaid E Fm E
