Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit

    I'll be the fire escape that's

save you if you start drowning In an open tab when
     F
your judgement's on the brink

C               C
    I'll be the phonograph that
Em                  Am                   F
plays your favorite Albums back as your lying there
F                  G     Em
drifting off to sleep... Drifting off to sleep...

C               C
    I'll be the platform shoes and
 Em                  Am                        F
undo what heredity's done to you... You won't have to strain
   F
to look into my eyes

C                C
    I'll be your winter coat
Em                           Am                       F
buttoned and zipped straight to the throat With the collar up so
F
you won't catch a cold

And kiss you on the mouth

We'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene,

Where everything will change, We'll give ourselves new names

identities erased

The sun will heat the grounds Under our bare feet in this
