[Intro]

G


[Verse 1]

         D                     G
She was a real royal lady true patron of the arts
            A7                               Bm              G
She said the best country singers die in the back of classic cars
        D                         G
So if I ever got too hungry for a suitcase or guitar
            D          A7         D
To think of them all alone in the dark


[Verse Break]

[Verse 2]

     D                                G
So I laid some nights beside her in a bed made for a queen
A7                                           Bm              G
She said I kissed her different that all the men her age were mean
        D                        G
Gave me anything I wanted oh the generosity
       D          A7           D
I took all that I could it was free

[Verse 3]

        D                             G
Now the sky's a torn up denim and the clouds just splattered paint
       A7                         Bm           G
It's a room I'm renovating it's a name I gotta change
         D                           G
If I get out of California I'm going back to my home state
             D          A7        D
To tell them all that I made a mistake


[Chorus 1]

                            G
And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
                      A
Lighting candles to a cynical saint
              D                 A                  Bm         G
Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
        A
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
         D        A   F#     Bm     G
From the panicked paradox of day to day
                  A
If you can't understand something then it's best to be afraid

[Verse 4]

D                                        G
The whole world it loves you if you're a chic chameleon
A7                             Bm               G
Intersecting circles she could hang with anyone
         D                             G
But when conducting business she would lie about where she's from
        D              A7            D
Saying "Life is how it is not how it was"

[Verse 5]

D                             G
I learned to listen felt like I was back at school
A7                           Bm            G
She'd talk forever about the phases of the moon
        D                               G
Saying "Everything's a cycle you got to let it come to you
            D             A7           D
And when it does you will know what to do"

[Verse 6]

D                              G
Without even knowing I guess I took up her advice
A7                                 Bm           G
Painted her front door it seemed a suitable goodbye
D                         G
It's not that often but I think of her sometimes
               D               A7           D
Just something quaint a couple ships in the night


[Chorus 2]

                          G
And they keep moving at a glacial pace
                     A
Turning circles in a memory maze
         D               A                       Bm       G
I made a new cast of the death mask that's gonna cover my face
         A
I had to change the combination to the safe
        D     A      F#       Bm     G
Hide it all behind a wall let people wait
          A
And never trust a heart that's so bent it can't break
