Capo 5

C  E  F  C  F  G  C

C                    E
  It's 3 AM, and the conversation's spent.
      F              C                   F             G
She's waiting on the bedside wrapped within the static wind and she's got
C                            E
  powders and pills, chasing thrills through dollar bills,
        F              C                 F           G
tracing lines of her reflection with her senses so distilled
       Am                     G
as she drifts on through this dream.
        C             E              Am
She can share her medication but she can't outrun the rain when clearly
F          C            F            C          F             C              F             G
  here she stands, with candy in her hands, she offers up the pixie dust and separates the sand,

and I'll say:

F         C         F              C
  "It's alright. No need to ask me twice."
    F                 C                E             Am    
She spins the ring so she can sing the crayon song tonight.
      F              G             C
She's gonna sing the crayon song tonight.


C  E  F  C  F  G  C


C                        E                                     
  When she calls you can find her in the hall.
            F             C                  F              G
Where she's scribbling up pictures she hangs crooked on the wall. She's framing
C                        E                                    F                C               F                  G
  false alarms until her chamber maids have gone, then she'll sleep beside the music box whose tune keeps playing on.
      Am             G
Her behavior seems insane,
         C                  E             Am
cause we both now you might overdose from trying to kill the pain, but lately:
F         C           F            C            F              C              F               G
  here we stand, with candy in our hands, let's mix us up some pixie dust and sprinkle in the sand. We'll just say:
F         C           F               C            F                C               E             Am
  "It's alright. 'Til once turns into twice. Let's spin the ring so we can sing the crayon song tonight."
      F              G           C
We're gonna sing the crayon song tonight.

 
    Am            F             C             G
I'm off to wander with my lover in her bag of pretty colors.
Am            F             C             G
Off to wander with my lover in her bag of pretty colors.

F   G

C                   E           
  Fan the flame and erase another day,
          F               C                   F            G
she'll be running all the red lights 'til the candles melt away along this
C                       E
  empty road, where the flowers never grow,
        F                   C             F                 G
casting shadows drenched in sorrow from a life she'll spend alone
          Am                G
until the sunshine sets her free.
    C                       E               Am
It appears that you've been down so long it looks like up to me but sadly:
F        C           F           C          F                 C              F              G
  here I stand, with candy in my hands, I'm mixed up with the pixie dust and sinking in the sand and something's
F           C          F                      C        F                  C                 E           Am          
  not quite right. Sometimes you should think twice. I spun the rings and now I'll sing the crayon song all night.
      F              G             C
We're gonna sing the crayon song tonight.


    Am            F             G             C              
I'm off to wander with my lover in her bag of pretty colors.
Am            F             G             C
Off to wander with my lover in her bag of pretty colors.

C   E   F   C   F   G   C
