Atoms by Emmy the Great
Capo on the 3rd Fret with all chords relative to the capo. 


D          
I know you’re going soon
A
It’s ok, I won’t freak
D                                        F#
Can see it in your eyes, you’ve been moving out for weeks
Em                                 A
You’ve found a girl, she’s so much prettier than me
Em
She’s much cleverer than me
A
She’s so much happier than me

D                              A
You want a lover who takes time over her looks
D                                  F#
Not some stupid kid who’s always wrapped up in her books
Em                   A
But can I help it if a sentence makes me cry?
Em
And the pavement makes me cry
A
And the thought of you and I

             D
Oh, just leave
                     A
There’s nothing much I want to say
                             D
But close the door
            F#                    Em            
You know how the atmosphere decays my bones
                      A
I feel the atoms on my skin
Em                       A
Oh, I feel the matter closing in

D                            A
From my perch I see the universe as one
D                            F#
See the planets in their glory, slowly dancing with the sun
Em                          A
See my ancestors in monkey costumes fucking on the rocks
Em                             A
See the priestess and her brother and the farmer and his crops

D                                       A
All these sacred histories have led to this one day
D                                            F#
When you face me on the stairs and say you have to go away
Em                                            A
And time stops like ice where all around it once was hot
Em                                                A
So don’t begrudge a girl her books cos they’re all a girl has got

D
They sit there now
A
The words unflinching in their strength
D
You see I only ever read
F#                                           
Cos I wish I was brave as them
D                                                 A
And I know these words will never leave me standing on the stairs
D                                      F#
Just like my frozen ancestors they always will be there
Em                                 A
In print, just like your image on my heart
Em                             A
For ever like the planets light the dark
Em                           A
Just like our world is waltzing with the sun
Em                                                       A
Just like when this world explodes it makes another one

             D
Oh you, just leave
                   A
I always wanted you to be free
             D                                F#
But next time you see the planets try and think of me
Em                                            A
And this moment on a stairway where I thought that I could see
Em                                         A
All the atoms in your lover, she’s much prettier than me
Em                              A
And can I help it if an atom makes me cry?
Em                                  A
I can’t help it if she’s happier than I
