CARAMIA (Emily Saliers) D E Caramia - a blank notebook and a back pocket fade... Em You used to mock me; G Sometimes I would cry C#dim D Gm D When I was home later. You hurt my feelings: B7 Why, why, why? Em Write it down in your notebook, G C#dim D Dsus4 D My wannabe Harriet the spy. Bm7 Some say your genius Em7 Is in your madness; Dm Will you get better? D Dsus4 D And then will you leave us? G C#dim How you mixed with the darkness D At such a young age! Em Until in your chemistry G Science and violence C#dim D Dsus4 D Turned silence to rage. D5 D5/B D5/C# D5 Why... are you dreaming this? Am Am/B Am/C Asus2 One shoe off, and a bridge to cross over. D5 D5/B D5/C# D5 And where is your taxi fare? Am Am/B Are you left by yourself Am/C Asus2 Or left by your lover? D5 D5/B For three nights straight now D5/C# D5 I dreamed I kept both of my shoes, Am Am/B But I've forgotten my lines, and Am/C Asus2 I've misplaced my cues; D D/B And there's a sea full of faces D/C# And a show to go on; Am Am/B And I'm struck mute at entrance Am/C Asus2 With nothing to draw from! D There were the secrets: the big bang E And the bigger joke. Em You seem to know all of them G C#dim D Gm D And injustice makes you red with choke. You love like you're desperate! B7 You don't know what love is! Em I thought if there was one thing I could give you, C#dim One thing I could tell you, D Dsus4 D Maybe it was this... Bm7 With your head on the bed board, Em7 The anguished repeat; Dm The sweat of our sadness-- D Dsus 4 D The twist of the sheets. G I don't want what's best for you! C#dim D Where would I be if you found it? Em I prayed a lot about these bad feelings inside, G C#dim D Dsus4 D But I can't pray my way through or around it. I found a lot of this somewhere else and messed around with it a bit. If you are the transcriber, please let me know.
