THE REAL WORLD
Tuning: Standard
Capo: First Fret

[INTRO]
C Dm Am7 F
C Dm F G

[VERSE 1]
C           Dm
I saw the autumn leaves
Am7               F
Peel up off the street
C                 Dm
Take wing on the balmy breeze
      F                  G
And sweep you off your feet
C                   Dm
And you blushed as they scooped you up
    Am7          F
On sugar maple wings
C                     Dm
To gaze down on the city below
F                      G
Ablaze with wondrous things

[CHORUS]
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

C Dm Am7 F
         I wouldn't wanna live there
C Dm F G

[VERSE 2]
C                 Dm
Weighed down by heavy lids
     Am7     F
And lunar lullabies
C                Dm
I knew you were wide awake
            F                G
'Cause you smile with your eyes

[CHORUS]
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

[BRIDGE]
C                     Dm
From the green belt balcony
Am7                     F
The wildfires look so pretty
C           Dm
Ponderosa canopy
      F            G
I'd never leave if it were up to me
C             Dm
To the ruby redwood tree
Am7                  F
And to the velvet climbing ivy
C               Dm
Painted all mahogany
      F            G             C
I'd never leave if it were up to me
(If it were up to me)

F                   G
With a starry brush
                          F
Paint the dusk venetian blue
                           G
'Cause in the evening hush
               C           F
You'll never believe the view
                           G
And when the leaves return
                                 F
And their whisperings fill the night
                        G
They'll freeze and burn
                      C
Where fire and ice collide

C Dm Am7 F
         Where fire and ice collide
C Dm F G

[CHORUS 2 & 1]
Am              G      F
Can you feel a silk embrace
         G
In the satin air?
Am               G         F
If we dissolve without a trace
          G
Will the real world even care?
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

C Dm Am7 F
         I wouldn't wanna live there
C Dm F G

[OUTRO]
C           Dm
I saw the autumn leaves
Am7               F
Peel up off the street
C                 Dm
Take wing on the balmy breeze
      F                  G
And sweep you off your feet...






DEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS
Tuning: Standard
Capo: None

Intro:
D
F#m  G  Bm  A  D x6

Verse 1:
G                 Bm
Met a girl in the parking lot
D                  A        F#m  G
And all I did was say hello
                          Bm
Her pepper spray made it rather hard
Em         G       A
For me to walk her home
         Em            Bm      A
But I guess that’s the way it goes

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
       G      Bm               G           A
Well smile because you’re the deer in the headlights

Interlude: F#m  G  Bm  A  D x4

Verse 2:
G                   Bm
Met a girl with a graceful charm
D                        A              F#m  G
But when beauty met the beast, he froze
             Bm
Got the sense I was not her type
    Em             G     A
By black eye and bloody nose
         Em            Bm      A
But I guess that’s the way it goes

Chorus

Bridge:
Bm         A
It’s suffocating to say
         Em                        G
But the female mystique takes my breath away
    D                   A
So give me a smile or give me a sneer
             G               A
‘Cause I’m trying to guess here



Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
    Em                   A
I’m sorry I ever tried (deer in the headlights)

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
    G         Bm               G          A
If life was a game, you would never play nice
    G         Bm               G           A
If love was a beam, you’d be blind in both eyes
          G          Bm                 G           A
Put your sunglasses on ‘cause you’re a deer in the headlights

Ending:
F#m  G  Bm  A  D
F#m  G  Bm  A  D
(You’re the deer in the headlights)
F#m  G  Bm  A  D x5
F#m  G  Bm  A  D
(You’re the deer in the headlights)

End on D






ANGELS
Tuning: Standard
Capo: First Fret

Intro: A - Em - G - D X2 (Wake me if you're out there!)

 
Verse:

A                       Bm             G
Through the glass in my bedroom window, 
(G)
In the bushes far below, 
A                       Bm             G
I thought I saw an unfamiliar shadow, 
(G)
Among the ones I so clearly know. 

Bridge:

Em                          G                    A
I've been sleeping with the nightlight unplugged, 
(A)
With a note on the rocking chair, 
Em                          G                   A
That says I'm dreaming of the life I once loved, 
(A)
So wake me if you're out there. 

Chorus:

G                   A
Living close to the ground, 
Bm                          E
It's seventh heaven because there are angels all around, 
G                  A
Among my frivolous thoughts, 
     D              G         Em                 A
I believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts.
D                    G
So wake me if you're out there! 


(Repeat intro, verse, bridge and chorus)

Bm                        A                              G               
I keep my knees black and blue 'cause they often hit the hardwood floor,
 A
(Wake me if you're out there), 
Bm                    A                          G      A
And I believe, so I'm not praying to the ceiling anymore.


(Repeat bridge, and then play the chorus TWICE) 

 
Outro:

G                     A
So if you're dying to see, 

(A)     D             G      Em          A         D.... (Hold)
I guarantee there are angels around your vicinity

D                  A              C
 Splashdown in the silver screen
                 G
Into a deep dram-atic scene
D                   A
 I swim through the theatre
   C             G 
Or maybe I'm just a dreamer!
D                   A             C
 Like a kite in the bright midday
                G
Wonder stole my breath away

Shy sonata for Mercury

The stars always sing so pretty

The sunsets that dazzle in the dusk

G                         D  A  C  G 
Dreams don't turn to dust


Verse 2 (as verse 1):
I made for the countryside
And my eyes never grew so wide
Apple, raspberry, river blue
I don't wanna leave without you
In the sound I'll gladly drown
Into the emerald underground
And I rub my eyes 'cause it's hard to see
Surrounded by all this beauty


Chorus:
A                 Bm           G
 This picnic will soon depart

The sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
A                 Bm
 So I'll drag the anchor up
    G                    A                         
And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust!

      I'd rather be alone 


Bridge:

When tiger eyes begin making you blush!
     Em                       Bm              
When diamonds boast that they can't be crushed

Let 'em go 'cause dreams don't turn to dust!

Intro (chords): C  F

Verse 1:
         C                                 F
Don’t remind me that somedays I’m a windshield
                                 C
And other days I’m just a lucky bug

As cold iron rails 
      Dm          Em                F      G   C
Leave old mossy trails through the countryside

Verse 2:
(C)                     F
The crow and the bean field
                                      C
Are my best friends but boy I need a hug (boy I need a hug)

Cause my heart stops without you
         Dm         Em            F         G    F
There’s somethin’ about you that makes me feel alive

Chorus:
(F)                     G          Am
If the green left the grass on the other side
F                   G          C
I would make like a tree and leave
F                          G              Am
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide
F                              G      C
Who knew the other side could be so green

Verse 3:
         (C)                                        F
Don’t remind me, I’m a chickadee in love with the sky
                                        C
But that’s clearly not a lot to crow about

Cause when the stars silhouette me
      Dm              Em            F     G C
I’m scared they’ll forget me, and flicker out

Verse 4:
(C)                                   F
I taste honey but I haven’t seen the hive
                                    C
Yeah I didn’t look, I didn’t even try

But still my heart stops without you
          Dm         Em            F         G    F
Cause of something about you that makes me feel alive

Chorus

Bridge:
Am  G  F                               Am  G  F
(Ooooooh) We are the honey and the bee (Ooooooh)
Em           F      G
Backyard of butterflies, surrounded me
Em             F         G
And I fell in love with you, like bees to honey
Em                F         G             Am 
So let’s up and leave the weeping to the willow tree
Em             F           G
And pour our tears in the sea
  Dm C G                                   F           Am         G
I swear, there’s a lot of vegetables out there, that crop up for air
           Dm     C G                           F
And yet I never thought, we were two peas in a pod
           Am         G
‘Till you suddenly bloomed and I knew
     F           Am    G
That I’d always love you
   F            Am       G
Oh I’ll always love you too

Chorus

Chorus:
F                       G          Am
If the green left the grass on the other side
F                   G          C
I would make like a tree and leave
F                          G              Am
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide
F                              G      Am
Who knew the other side could be so green
F                          G            Am
And if I reached for your hand for the rest of my life
F                              G      C
Who knew the other side could be so green

I sur-vived a dreadful accident
        E               Abm     F#   
In the car crash of the cen-tury
             B                            Abm
My shattered hopes collapsed on cold cement
                       E
But in the back of the ambulance
           B             F#
I'd never felt so content

Pre-chorus:
  C#m                      
A high-speed collision gave

   And now my vision can render the scene
C#m                  B            F#

I tossed and turned, in sterile apathy

My burns were third de-gree

Onto the teeth,

So I won't feel dead anymore


F#m      E             D
I saw a bear in the den
F#m        E              D
Reading my textbooks again
     F#m              E                D
That bats flowed like traffic as they poured from the attic
       F#m            D             E
Heaven knows, I could really use a friend


A          Amaj7           Bm               D 
I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest
    A              A/C#       D           E
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time
A          Amaj7          Bm         D
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus
  Bm         A/C#           D                   E
If I were to pluck on their heartstrings would you strum on mine?

Bm        A       E
I've been longing for
D           A                E 
Daisies to push through the floor
   Bm      A                G         D         
And I wish plant life would grow all around me

Your spirit is sweet, so pull off your sheet
    F           C          D
And give me a ghost of a smile
Bm                C               G           D
Show me your teeth 'cause you're teddy beneath
   F              C             D
So just grin and bear it a while
F             C/E            D

   Am        G       D
To-night I'm busting out

Of this old haunted house
           Am      G       D  
'Cause I'm sick of waiting for
        Bm     A       G         D
All the spider webs to grow all around me
       C            G           D
'Cause I don't feel dead anymore
    C        Em            D

HOW I BECAME THE SEA
Tuning: Standard
Capo: None

Verse 1:
Bm                           A   
  June was the lobster shell
              Bm
I dug by hand
                        G 
A haven that hid me well
                A
Beneath the sand
Bm                               A
  The white windy waves washed in
                 Bm
But I stayed dry
                               
The great breakers broke again
       G             D      A
'Cause I'm on and off inside

Chorus:
         G                 Bm         A
And then, when the empress run aground
                   D/F#          G
And my eyes turned blue and green
                   Bm   A
I heard a gorgeous sound
                         D        G
And that's when it became a dream
                  Bm  A
When the sky fell in
                    D/F#       G
When the hurricanes came for me
                Bm         A
I could finally crash again
                       D       Bm  G  Bm  G  A
And that's how I became the sea

Verse 2 (same as verse 1):
I wrenched the engines off
And dragged them down
The depths turned the iron soft
As they swiftly drowned
And I brought the ocean side
To its rusty knees
As I felt the even tide
Deep in my shallow dreams

Chorus:
         G                 Bm         A
And then, when the empress run aground
                   D/F#          G
And my eyes turned blue and green
                   Bm   A
I heard a gorgeous sound
                         D        G
And that's when it became a dream
                  Bm  A
When the sky fell in
                    D/F#        G
When the hurricanes came for me
                Bm         A
I could finally crash again
                       D       
And that's how I became the sea


Instrumental (x2):  G  Bm A  D/F# G  Bm A  D


Chorus 2:
          G
(When the sky fell in)
                  Bm
When the sky fell in
          A
(When the sky fell in)
                    D/F#        G 
When the hurricanes came for me
                Bm         A
I could finally crash again
                       D       G
And that's how I became the sea
             Bm      A
(How I became the sea)
                  D/F#      G
That's how I became the sea
             Bm      A
(How I became the sea)
                   D       G  Bm A  D/F# G  Bm A  D
That's how I became the sea

When the engines cough, and you blast off
A                            Em            G          
    Ignite the night with a firecracker flash
D                A                                 Em     
    Remember to live 'cause you're gonna be thrilled to death
           G                         D             
When the stars collide and your eyes grow wide
A                             Em              G         
    Take it in with your breath against the glass
D                 A                                Em                             
    Remember to dream because it's gonna be a starry night
      G                D
Over every town if you look down
A                            Em         G    
    So harmonize with the singing satellites
D                A                                  Em        
    Remember to scream because you're gonna be lost for words
           G                         D
When the sparks erupt and they light you up
A                           Em                G                 D
    Dip your toes in the galaxy 'cause it's yours to explore tonight

I'm drowning in this starry serenade
      A                  Em
Where ecstasy becomes cavalier
     G              D
My imagination's taking me away
A                  Em
Reverie whisper in my ear
      G                            D
I'm scared to death that I'll never be afraid
A                           Em

D  D  C   G

Verse 1:
D	     Am      G
Symphony of silver tears
D			  C          G

Sing to me and sooth the ring in my ears
D		       Am	  G

Overcast these gloomy nights wear on
         D                                 C               G
But I'm holding fast because it's darkest just before the dawn


Pre-Chorus:
Am	    F		   C
I sang my princess fast asleep
	 G		       Am
'Cause she was my dream come true
	 F            C	           G
Oh Annmarie, believe me, I loved you
Am	       F           C
But now those lonely lullabies
      G		      Dm
Just dampen my tired eyes
	   F		 G
Because I can't forget you
Dm	   F		 G
Because I can't forget you

Chorus:
D		        Am

I'll dissolve when the rain pours in
C		     G

When the nightmares take me
D		        Am
I will scream with the howling wind
C		       G                    D
'Cause it's a bitter world and I'd rather dream

Interlude: D  Am  C  G  x2

Dizzy love turned a star lily pink
And hung above our lids too flushed to blink
But icy blue froze the fairytale cold
Though I treasured you and you sparkled with someone to hold
