Gm  Dm       F
how lonely I find
     Bb5  C5 D5 Gm
will tend to my mind
Dm        Bb    D
along this mossy trail
    Gm  Dm       F
and how coyly it hides
    Bb5   C5 D5 Gm
the truth about how
   Dm    Bb      D
it is we can ask how

A#          Cm
crowds jump to their deaths
D#                       A#    F
from the bridges I drive by tonight
A#                   Cm
they miss out on it all
                            D#
the whole gist that as they fall
                            A#
you're not expected to know why
            F
it's such a short time
F
and there are stanzas never meant to rhyme

Gm  Dm       F
far better I find
  Bb5 C5   D5 Gm     Dm
it is when we try to spend
Bb      D
the ??? ????
Gm   Dm      F
with no real rationale
   Bb5  C5  D5 Gm         Dm
we step out of bounds and think
      Bb       D
and escape the lies

    A#
and we've marched,
Cm          D#
so long but we've much farther
           A#      F
than we've gone to go
    A#               Cm
and we'll make a new ship
                   D#
cristen it for the trip
                      A#        F
with a toddler at the helm this time
F
and there are things we never will define
