Alana Henderson
Wax and Wane

This is a beautiful song that I saw live at a conference (of all things), and wanted to 
learn how to play. There were no chords online (or even lyrics), so here's my version.

For Alana's work, see http://alanahenderson.bandcamp.com/

No capo, standard tuning

Em                D              C
I could blame our partin for the fact that I'm not startin
Em                     D                C
All my mornings at the time they are to start
            Em            D                C
And I could summon up the sisterhood, cry "leave me out of widowhood"
    Em          D           C
But that is melodrama on my part
Em               D               C
I could blame my greiving on the fact that I've been leaving us
  Em               D                C
Behind the ones we were when this begun
           Em             D             C
But I have rose-tinted us ruby, and I've conjured up a new me
          Em           D            C
Who bent freely to her newly molded man
       Em          D           C
But we bent and we broke and I meant what I spoke
        Em              D             C
And the blame game does not produce a winner
           Em              D             C
We went as far as we could go, we had to go that far to know
       Em              D       C
We had nowhere left to aim and noone left to blame
        Em             D                        C
But the moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide
    Em             D                        C
The moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide


    Em               D              C
And I could blame my parents for my vices so inherent that I
Cannot shake them much as I may try
But how much have my inherited or picked up since I was a kid
That nature vs. nuture paradigm
I could blame my turns that I take on the decisions that my head makes
Then trace each error right back to my heart
But is it broken because you toyed with it, or was it formed a little split
That grows each year further and further apart
But we love, and we lose, and we lash out and we bruise
And the name of the game's just the living
We go as far as we can go, we've got to go that far to know
We have everything to gain, and knowing we can blame
The moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide
The moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide

    Em               D           C
And so I looked at karma, and if I try not to harm another
I will not be harmed by anything
If I salute the magpie knock on wood will I be doing any good
Am I strung up or do I pull the strings
Well the fact I cling too tightly till my dreams come back and bite me
Am I trying to make a science of an art
And will the very fate I wish to move be the one that I am doomed by
Thinking that I can steer this crazy cart
But I live and I learn and I light and I'll burn
Until the flame simmers down to a spark
I'll go as far as I can go I've got to go that far to know
That I have everything to gain and knowing I can't train
The moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide
The moon's wax and wane and the turn of the tide

(break)

Em D    C           Em    D  C
I never said it was your fault
I only wanted to blame someone
I never said it was your fault
I only wanted to blame someone

The moon's wax and wane and turn of the tide
The moon's wax and wane and turn of the tide
