"A Perfect Sonnet"
by: Bright Eyes

[Verse 1]
C
lately i've been wishing i had one desire
Em
something that would make me never want another
Am
something that would make it so that nothing matters
D(b5)sus2
all would be clear then  but i
C
guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief
moments and
Em
watch all dissolve into a single second
    Am
and try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
   D(b5)sus2

[Verse 2]
or one foolish line
            F               G             Am
cauz that's all that you'll get so you'll have to
D(b5)sus2
accept
        F                    G
you are here and then you're gone
*sing the chorus now*
    C
but i believe that lovers should be tied together and
Em
thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather and
Am
left there to drown, left there to drown
        D(b5)sus2
in their innocence but

[Verse 3]
C
as for me i'm coming to the final chapter
  Em
i read all of the pages and there is still no answer
Am
only all that was before i know must soon come after
            D(b5)sus2
that is the only way it can be

[Bridge]
     F            G
so i stand in the sun
      Am          D(b5)sus2
and i breathe with my lungs
          F                G                 (Am)
trying to spare myself the weight of the truth saying

[Verse 5]
C
everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
           Em
and you've spent your whole life sweating in an
endless fever
                Am
and now you are laying ina bathtum full of freezing
      D(b5)sus2
water wishing you were a ghost
    C
but once you knew a girl and you named her lover
    Em
and danced with her in kitchens through the greenest
           Am
summer but autumn came, she disappeared
                         D(b5)sus2
you don't remember where she said she was going to

[Verse 6]
        F                G                Am
but you know that she is gone because she left you a
D(b5)sus2
song
         F             G
that you don't want to sing
        C
singing i believe that lovers should be chained
together
    Em
and thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
    Am
and left there to burn, left there to burn in their
D(b5)sus2
arrogance

[Verse 7]
    C
but as for me i'm coming to my final failure
     Em
i've killed myself with changes trying to make it
better
            Am
but i still ended up becoming something other than
D(b5)sus2
what i had planned to be...ALRIGHT!!! [C,Em,Am, D(b5)]
    C
now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
    Em
and layed entwined together on a bed of clover
    Am
and left there to sleep, left there to dream of their
D(B5)sus2     D(b5)sus2
happiness

End on this:
