**CAPO 2**

                            G
He cut your strings so that he could float
                           D
- lit by lights, lifted by alcohol
                 Am
- over acres of loving coast,
                    C                    D
far away from your lonely ghost.
          G
Now he’s cool and all,
                      D
floating anchorless. Ports of call:
                     Am
where it’s fabulous, after all
                      C                  D
of this watching himself just crawl.

 Em    A   C   G
Think you see him?
 D
He’s not there,
             Am
that’s just light
                C
that’s not yet dead.
 Em   A  C  G
Wait two hours
     D                         Am
and watch what’ll be there instead.

         G
Was he small and cold,
                     D
like a ring you call up from home,
                     Am
held so tightly his limbs went numb,
                        C                   D
worn away between your finger and thumb?
                 G
Well, now he’s bought and sold.
                     D
Cry his call number down the phone,
                         Am
he can’t hear you – he’s on his float,
                     C                      D
waving down to the folks at home.


Em     A   C   G
Think you see him?
 D
He’s not there,
             Am
that’s just light
                C
that’s not yet dead.
 Em   A  C  G
Wait two hours
     D                         Am
and watch what’ll be there instead.



Em          D            C          Am
    As the cameras love all of his faces,
      G             Em       D           C
they hide all the traces of you in his heart.
Em            G             C           Am
    Stand in line to hold forth on his grace,
         Em                    Am
but you won’t even get a head-start,
        C    D
Get a head start

G   D   Am   C   D

G   D   Am   C   D

         G
As his close-up comes
                      D
cascading down from above,
                         Am
the eyes of a nation in love
                             C
are looking on all of their hopes
     D
held up.
         G
And the words that some
                           D
screenwriter counted and chose,
                                    Am
and then set in their sequence and froze,
                               C
unfreeze on his tongue as he speaks
           D
for all of us
     G
but one.
                 D
And honey, he’s gone.
                Am
And baby, he’s everyone’s.
        C          D
In the dark sky tonight,
           G
cast your eyes
        D
on the dim light
        Am
that he will become.
             C   D
You’re like everyone
     Em      A   C   G
Who thinks they see him
 D
He’s not there,
             Am
that’s just light
                C
that’s not yet dead.
 Em   A  C  G
Wait two hours
     D                         Am
and watch what’ll be there instead.
