Capo 1st fret

Standard (EADGBE)

my heart is on my sleeve my head is in the sand

i said how did we end up here? you said happenstance

but i didn't understand so i made other plans

i ran to the ocean washed the blood off of my hands

i washed away my tears washed away ten years

washed away the empty space in-between my ears

and you said all that i mean is that you and me

didn't meet because of fate but rather probability

and you said the truth's like corn and lies are like weeds

you said the schroedinger equation collapsed perfectly

and i said mercy me be patient please

'cause i don't know a goddam thing about the birds and the bees

i just know what i'm like and i'm like what i see

even though it's hard to see because you just blinded me

and if there's one thing i learned in chemistry

it's that the gain of electrons is reduction, obviously

but you can't see electrons without machines

and you can't tell from my inflection if i'm being mean

and i don't know if i can take you seriously

sometimes elections depend on the absentees

and my family and my friends

and all the little kids that love me make me strong

and no matter how this ends

i know i'll never ever ever be alone

some day i'll be an old lady

with a big dress and an apron

a babushka and bare feet

i'll be out in my garden

on my hands and knees

and i'll be singing a song

that is really sad and sweet
