Intro

C7M9 C

F

Switch between Cmaj9 and C by hammering the 2nd fret on the 4th string

Verse 1

CHeadlights Emrace towards the Fcorner of the dining room CHalf ilEmluminate a Fface before they disappear CYou breathe in Emforty years of Ffailing to describe a feeling CI breathe out Emsmoke against the Fwindow, trace the letters in your Gname GOur letters sound the Fsame full of all our changing GThat isn't change at Fall, all straight lines circle C7M9sometime {repeat intro chords}

Verse 2

CYou said Emsomewhere there's a Fbox full of replacement parts to CAll the Emtenderness we've Fbroken or let rust away CSomewhere Emsympathy is Fmore than just a way of leaving CSomewhere Emsomeone says I'm Fsorry, someone's making plans to Gstay GSo tell me it's oFkay, tell me anything or GShow me there's a Fpull unassailable

Chorus

That will Clead you there from the dark alone To beFnevolence that you've never known Or you Amknew when you were Emfour and can't reFmember Where a Csmall knife tears out those sloppy seams And the Fsilence knows what you silence means And your Ammetaphors as Emmixed as you can Fmake them, are linked like days toC7M9gether {repeat intro chords}

C Em F

Pre-chorus

GI still hear trains at Fnight, when the wind is right I GRemember everyFthing, lick and thread this string

Chorus

That will Cnever mend you or tailor more Than a Fmemory of a kitchen floor or the Amfire door that Emwe kept propping Fopen And I Clove this place, the enormous sky And the Ffaces, hands that I'm haunted by So Amwhy can't I forgive these Fbuildings, these frameworks labeled C7M9home {repeat intro chords}

Outro

CHeadlights Emrace towards the Fcorner of the dining room CHalf ilEmluminate a Fface before they disappear
