 Chorus 1:
   
    C           C/G                   
  I dreamt of a fever, one that would 
  Am              F        F/E     C
  cure me of this cold, winter-set heart.
               C/G               Am
  With heat to melt these frozen tears
                          F     F/E
  and burned with reasons as to carry on.
 C           C/G               
  Into these twisted months, 
    Am              F        F/E
  I plung without a light to follow,
       C                         C/G
  but I swear that I would follow anything
                          Am           F   F/E
  if it would just get me out of here.

 Bridge 1:

 Am           F          
  And you get six months to adapt.
 Am           F
  And you get two more to leave town.
 Am               F
  And in the event that you do adapt,
 Am              F              G
  we still might not want you around.

 Chorus 2:
       C             C/G
  And I fell for the promise 
       Am          F       F/E
  of a life with a purpose,
        C             C/G      Am    F    F/E
  but I know that's impossible now.
          C              C/G
  And so I drink to stay warm 
         Am            F    F/E
  And to kill selected memories
                C                          C/G
  because I just can't think anymore about that
                       Am   F   F/E
  or about her tonight.

 Bridge 2:

 Am                 F                     Am
  And I give myself three days to feel better
                       F
  or else I swear I'll drive it off of a fucking cliff.
 Am                           F
  Because if I can't learn to make myself feel better,
 Am                       F              G
  how can I expect anyone else to give a shit.

 Chorus 3:
       C               C/G
  And I scream for the sunlight
       Am             F  F/E
  or a car to take me anywhere.
      C                 C/G              Am   F   F/E
  Just get me past this dead and eternal snow.
         C                 C/G
  Because I swear that I'm dying,
  Am               F    F/E
  slowly, but it's happening.
           C                  C/G         Am
  So if the perfect spring is waiting somewhere
 F       F/E     C
  please take me there.
 C/G          Am
  Just take me there.
 F     F/E     C         C/G
  Just take me there and say,
                    Am
  and lie to me and say,
                    
  and lie to me and say,
 F               F/E
  "it's gonna be alright.
                   C
  It's going to be alright.
 C/G
  It's going to be alright.
 Am                        F   F/E
  It's going to be alright.
 C
  You worry too much, kid,
 C/G                        Am   F   F/E
  It's going to be alright."

 Verse 1:
 Am
  I had a brother. 
     G
  He drowned in a bathtub
    F                      E      Am
  before he'd ever learned how to talk.
              G
  And I don't know what his name was,
 F
  but my mother does.
 E
  I heard her say it once.
      Am               
  "Padraic, my prince, I've all but died
           G
  from the shear weight of my shame.
      F
  You cried, but no one came
          E
  and the water filled your tiny lungs.
    Am
  Appear, my dear, and sing to me.
             G
  It was six years ago today
          F
  that we layed you in your grave.
       E
  Your sweet, young skin was shining then too."

 Pre-Chorus 1:

 Am
  And so tonight to celebrate
    F            G
  I will, I will poison myself.
 Am
  Another coughing, shaking fit
       F                G
  in a bathroom that is spinning.

 Chorus:
        C        G
  And I close te door
      Am                  F
  and rest my head on the tile floor,
 C                   G
  with, sickness and sleep
             Am
  turning me cold.
           C         G
  And I am still not sure,
                Am          
  is there some better place I could be
  F
  heading towards?
 C                    G
  Where the selfishly sick
             Am
  and self absorbed...

 Verse 2:

 Am
  I saw future once.
        G
  I was drunk in a phone booth.
     F
  My eyes were wet and red
              E                 Am
  and I could not tell what was said.
                  G
  And through the screams of the traffic
 F              E
  voices carried saying, "I'm sorry."
       Am
  On a day so gray, it's black inside,
           G
  watching churches on TV.
       F
  In a coma you don't dream,
           E
  you just hope that someone sits with you.
    Am
  Babies turn blue when they're ignored,
           G
  like the sky on summer days,
             F       
  before you turn and walk away,
 E
  it has changed you.

 Pre-Chorus 2:

 Am
  And so tonight to compensate
    F            G
  I will, I will poison myself.
 Am
  Another coughing, shaking fit
       F                G
  in a bathroom that is spinning.

  As the concrite provides, well the scenery grows,
          G                          C
  and the lonely, once bandaged, lay fully exposed,
         D                               
  having undressed their wounds for each other.

  And there is a boy in the basement

  with a four-track machine,
            D                           G          D
  he's been strumming and screaming all night down there.

  The tape hiss will cover the words that he sings,
                         D                   
  but then they say it's better to bury your sadness

  in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring
     Am              C                    D

  Well, I've cried,
                Em
  and you would think I would be better for it,
                       D
  but the sadness just sleeps
                       C
  and it stays in your spine
                      G
  for the rest of your life.
           G
  And I've learned,
            Em
  and you'd think I'd be something more now,
                      D
  but it just goes to show,
                     C
  it is not what you know,

  it's what you were thinking at the time.

    Am               C               D
  I need something I want to be close to.)

  Chorus:

        G
  And I scream,
 (And I scream,)
        Em
  but I still know why I do it,
                          D
  because the sound never stays,
                       C
  it just swells and decays,
                G
  so what is the point?
      G
  Why try
 (Why try)
     Em
  to fight what is now so certain?
                          D
  The truth is,all that I am
                C
  is a passing event
                  G
  that will be forgotten.

  And if it rains, we'll just sink into the mud.
              A
  Where it is quiet
                           Dmaj7
  and much cooler than the house is
                  Bm                          E
  and there is no clocks or phones to wake us up.
               A                          Dmaj7
  Because I've learned that nothing is as pressing
                Bm                           E
  as the who is pressing would like you to believe.
             A                     Dmaj7
  And I'm content to walk a little slower,
                  Bm             E
  because there's nowhere that I really need to be.

  But these are days we dream about

  when the sunlight paints us gold,
            Bm 
  and this apartment could not be prettier 
        E
  as we dance up there alone.

  And this TV's old,

  the color is fucked,
                 G#
  do you see the difference in the shades?
          Bm
  But the green is still close to green, my love,

  and I believe we are the same.

 A                       Bm
  And we'll stay like this,
 
  all gold and green;
  E
  light collects, it projects your heart
       A
  on a movie screen.
 A
  And if you close your eyes,
  Bm                    E
  we will always be the way we were
                           A
  that night you crawled inside of me
          Dmaj7                 E
  And you slept in my blood the way you sleep now.
      Dmaj7             E
  The quietist hush has consumed this house
               Dmaj7
  and when the doctors have gone
          E
  and you sweat through the bed
           Dmaj7
  with the pictures and pills
       E                    Dmaj7
  that piled around your head.
               E
  Well, just rest now,

 A                               C#m
  and in the morning you'll know everything.
         Bm                    E               A
  Was it all a dream? It's too vague now to recount.
                    C#m
  An outline of the one you love
       Bm                       E        Dmaj7
  in a life that was, that will no longer be,
          E              A
  stands above you as you sleep.

  Here, where the carpet's cool and soft,

  underneath the clock,

  I feel my weary heart is put to rest.

  You gather around your friends,

  the connection that you feel

  when the night has not yet died.
          C                        Em
  You are new with the promise of a love
                        Am
  you'll probably never find,
        F                  G      C
  and a touch that you can really feel
                  Em
  the brokenness inside
                      Am
  as hope and less collide.
      F          G
  Now nothing is real.

 (You are new and near now 
  to someone you used to love
  when you were young;
  when all was gold
  and you two touched
  and felt the flutter underneath your skin.
  You stood in glowing rooms,
  the light dripping from both of you.
  And nothing since has felt as radiant or real.)

 Am                           G
  And there is nothing more I want
               Am
  than just one night
                           G       C   Em   Am   F G
  that's free of doubt and sadness.

 Verse 1:

            G
  I spent a week drinking the sunlight
        G
  of Winetka, California,
             G
  where they understand the weight of human hearts.
           G
  You see, sorrow gets too heavy

  and joy, it tends to hold you
           G
  with the fear that it eventually departs.

 Chorus 1:

          C
  And the truth is,
            D
  I've been dreaming
          G               Em
  of some tired, tranquil place
            C                 D                 G
  where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones
         C                  D
  And if all these years of searching find
      G          Em
  one sympathetic face,
            C                      D
  then it's there I'll plant these seeds
              G
  and make my home.

 Verse 2: 

            G
  I spent a day dreaming of dying
     G
  in Mesa, Arizona,
        G
  where all the green of life had turned to ash.
        G
  And I felt I was on fire,
           G
  with the things I could have told you,
           G                              G
  I just assumed that you eventually would ask,

 Chorus 2:

        C                D
  and I wouldn't have to bring up
        G           Em
  my so badly broken heart,
      C                   D               G
  and all those months of just wanting to sleep.
          C                  D
  And the spring, it did come slowly,
    G                Em
  I guess it did it's part.
     C                    D            G
  My heart has thawed and continues to beat.

 Verse 3:

        G
  And I visited my brother
         G
  on the outskirts of Olympia
            G                           G
  where the forest and the water become one.
         G
  And we talked about our childhood,
         G     
  like a dream we were convinced of,
       G                                    G
  that perfect, peaceful street that we came from.

 Chorus 3:

        C                D
  And I know he heard me strumming 
            G              Em
  all those sad and simple chords,
       C             D
  as I sat inside my room
           G
  so long ago.
         C                     D
  And it hurts that he's still shaking
      G                Em
  the secrets that were told
       C                 D
  by a car closed up too tight
                     G
  and a heart turned cold.

 Verse 4:

        G
  And I went to San Diego,
      G
  the birth place of the summer,
      G                                 G
  and watched the ocean dance under the moon.
            G  
  And there was a girl I knew there,
  G
  one more potential lover,
    G                                    G
  I guess that something's got to happen soon.

 Chorus 4:
            C                 D
  Because I know I can't keep living
          G             Em
  in this dead or dying dream
           C                 D
  and as I watched along the beach
                 G
  and drank with her,
    C               D
  I thought about my true love,
      G           Em
  the one I really need.
       C                 D
  With eyes that burn so bright,
               G
  they make me pure.
               G
  They make me pure.
               G
  They make me pure.
    C       D       G
  I long to be with you.
               G 
  They make me pure.
               G
  They make me pure.
    C       D       G
  I long to be with you.

  Is the passion all gone?

 A7                     A7*
  If all this heat is doing

                      E
  When you pull on my hair and bite me
      B                                    A7   A7*
  and scratch me, it will seem more like a song.

 Verse 1:

      Am              F
  the language in the dimmer room
  E7                                 Am
  seems to represent its light source well.
      Am                  F
  How soft they speak and seem to be at peace
           E7                            Am
  with the movement of the music and the madness
          F      E        Am    Am
  that is pulling me into this.
          Am
  And the shades of the lamps are woven red.
      F 
  The light, it stains and consecrates,
    E7
  annointing all forgotten forms
       E
  that swirl and smoke and haunt this place.
      Am                
  The girls in gowns all nurse the dark,
      F
  pulling it near to their swelling breasts
      E7
  and watch as it seeps to their hearts
      E
  and beats within their virgin chests.
      Am
  And here I know seduction breads
       F
  from wanton hearts that would seduce
      E7
  and grows and spreads its vines and leaves
    E
  embracing those who might have moved,
      Am
  but now remain to drink the night
       F
  from vials black and thick with steam
       E7
  such intoxicating delights
        E                              F  E7
  would leave you drunk inside this dream.
          Am         G        F          E
  And you watch them take the light from you.

 Verse 2:

          Am                 E
  And you find yourself on a velvet couch
     E7                         Am
  tasting the skin of a foreign girl.
      Am                 E
  Her eyes are black and wet like oil
          E7                              Am
  and she ties your hands with a string of pearls.
          Am
  And you tremble like a fightened bird
         E
  as she closes in and captures you
     F
  to place you in a silver cage
  E7                        Am
  deep within her poisoned womb.
                      E
  So once your safe inside
                    F      E7
  she might let you out to fly
     Am                 E
  in circles around the room.
           F                      E7
  But it's always night and there is no moon.
          Am     G      F   E
  And you wonder if you are alive.
             Am       G      F       E
  But you're not sure if you want to be.
          Am        G          F      E
  But you drink her sweat like it was wine,
          Am                E
  and you lay with her on a bed of blue
           F                    E7
  and it's awful sweet like the friut she cuts
               
  and feeds to you.

 Verse:

  Let's sail away past the noise of the bay.
  Let's sail away past the birth and death of the day.
  Let's sail away to where the blues and greens
  swirl into gray.
  Let's sail away.
  Let's sail away past the cradle of these waves.
  Let's sail away past the tide and its slow decay.
  Let's sail away to where the water goes-
  some endless open space.

 Chorus:

  Take only what you need, my love,
  and leave the rest behind.
  Don;t be afraid of where we'll go, my love,
  I promise, you'll be fine.
  Now you are the only one that's mine.

 Verse:

  Let's sail away past the reflections of the light.
  Let's sail away floating weightless through the night.
  Let's sail away like a photograph,
  fading to all white.
  It's finally alright.

 Chorus:

  Forget all the mistakes, mu love,
  they won't be made again.
  Leave the photos in the drawer, my love,
  we no longer need them.
  We both know where we've been.

 Verse:

  Let's sail away disappearing in a mist.
  Let's sail away with a whisper and a kiss.
  Or vanish from a road somewhere,
  like Tereza and Thomas,
  suspended in this bliss.
