My favorite song from Bird of Youth's new album, Get Off.

[Verse 1]

D                           A
well it's been a year since I
                                 Em7
crossed my heart and watched you die
                          G
different ways to say goodbye
                            D
filled the cracks in silent nights

D                       A
with deep pockets in my eyes
                            Em7
i count the ways he's still alive
                              G
they're just brightly shining lies
                          D
and i can't stop, i can't cry

A Em7 G D


[Verse 2]

D                           A
well it's been a year since we
                        Em7
poured the ashes near a tree
                           G
in the Brooklyn park where he
                     D
ate his lunches as a boy

D                        A
living life on hands and knees
                            Em7
crawling towards that final scene
                      G
was i grateful? was i mean?
                    D
and did i bring him joy?

A Em7 G D


[Verse 3]

D                         A
well i never thought that i'd
                              Em7
cross my heart and hope you'd die
                    G
but i cannot live a lie
                               D
i just wanted you to have your pride

D                              A
you lost your life but not the fight
                            Em7
your body flickered half as bright
                    G
and i said one last "goodnight"
                           D
and watched it all fade to white


[Bridge]

D A Bm F#


G#m             E
am i ok? am i alright?
                                B
do i still cry when it feels right?
                                F#
these answers drip off tips of tongues
                                    G#m
they stain my lips and they fill my lungs

G#m                         E
does it seem real that he's gone?
                       B
do i feel like writing songs?
                              F#
they say there is no right or wrong
                                     G#m
the days burn bright, the nights are long

G#m                        E
i had to tell him he could go
                                  B
that i'd be alright, but i didn't know
                                 F#
they say that's what you have to do
                           G#m
that it helps them to pass through

G#m                      E
reading pamphlets in the snow
                        B
things i didn't want to know
                                 F#
the priests and doctors they all loom
                               G#m
and now he'll never leave this room

G#m                   E
all i know is one day i
                        B
was no longer someone's child
                              F#
when i flew home two thousand miles
                           G#m
i didn't know what i would find

G#m                                 E
i'm scared to fly and i'm scared to die
                   B
he is always by my side
                                   F#
in dreams and pictures, frames and skies
                             G#m
between the days, between my eyes
