SWEET LAMENT


Capo 2

(I've kinda changed the chords to this song over time, but this should be accurate 
to the album version.)

C	Em	G	F
C	Em	G	G	G7	G7

C	Em	G	F
Do you ever shake, noticing that you are still 
C	Em	G	F
Awake, that everything around you is
C	Em	G	F
Real, I'm really this old, this is how I look and
C	Em	G	F
Feel, where'd time go and who am I?

C	Em	G	G	G7	G7

C	Em	G	F
But even so, I've tendencies I can't seem to 
C	Em	G	F
Outgrow, like this overwhelming fear of the dark
C	Em	G	F
Planning conversations I won't 
C	Em	G	F
Start, I'm terrified of what might be.

C	Em	G	G	G7	G7

CHORUS
Am	G	F	G
And with one lamenting yell, we all retreat within ourselves
Am	G	C	G
And we say "Oh well, we tried"
F	C
Could have tried a little harder
F	G
Should have been a little smarter
Am	G
But if God don't have a plan, neither do I.

C	Em	G	F
C	Em	G	G	G7	G7

We try so hard
To make up for all the things we aren't
Like the way I yell at the TV
Every night while watching Jeopardy
Though I won't make a single dime.

CHORUS
So with one lamenting yell
We all retreat within ourselves
And we say "My God, how we tried"
But God is but a man
With a martini in is hand
If these stars don't hold my fate
Neither do I.

BRIDGE
Am	G
Hearts afire aren't happier
F	G
No, hearts afire aren't happier
Am	G	C	G
They all fizzle out fast in the end
F	C
Racing minds aren't happier
F	G
No, racing minds aren't happier
Am	C	G	G	G7	G7
'Cos they're all dead last in the end.

CHORUS
So with one lamenting yell
We retreat within ourselves
And we say "My God, how we tried"
But God is but a man
With a martini in his hand
If love gets to be blind
Then so do I.
