send for all your absent lovers things.

         Gadd9                      Am
When the Moon fell in love with the Sun
       Em      D      G
All was golden in the sky
        D      C       Em         D
All was golden when the day met the night
         D            D/C#                  
When the Sun found the Moon
                  C           G               
She was drinking tea out in a garden
           Bb            D
Under the green umbrella trees
                 G
In the middle of summer
        D              D/C#
When the moon found the sun
                      C              G
He looked like he was barely hanging on
        Bb             D
But her eyes saved his life
                 G
In the middle of summer (summer)
                C

So he said, "Would it be all right
                  C                   G
If we just sat and talked for a little while
     Bb                D
If in exchange for your time
                G
I give you this smile?"
       D              D/C#
So she said, "That's okay
                           C
As long as you can make a promise
       G
Not to break my little heart
   Bb           D            G
Or leave me all alone in the summer."
     A
Well he was just hanging around
                Dm
Then he fell in love
And he didn't know how
                    A
But he couldn't get out
Just hanging around
                Dm
Then he fell in love
                 C
In the middle of summer
        Em    D      G
All was golden in the sky
        D     C        Em           D
All was golden when the day met the night
C
Summer
       Em     D       G
All was golden in the sky

Swan diving off of the deep end
Of my tragic cigarette

Laughing on the windowpanes

11.) behind the sea

A

Our daydream spills from my gold head
                  F#m
Breaks free of my wooden neck
F                        A
Left a nod over sleeping waves
Like bobbing bait for bathing cod
                    F#m
Floating flocks of candle swans
F             
Slowly drift across wax ponds
A           F#m             C#m
The men all played along to marching drums
 F#m          C#m        A            E
And boy did they have fun behind the sea
         A        F#m              C#m
They sang, “so our matching legs are marching clocks
F#m       C#m          A        E
And we’re all too small to talk to god
           A            F#m         E
Yes, we’re all too smart to talk to god"

A
Toast the fine folks casting silver crumbs
      F#m
To us from the dock.
F                              A
Jinxed things ringing as they leak
Through tiny cracks in the boardwalk.
                   F#m
Scarecrow now it’s time to hatch
F                               A
Sprouting sons and ageless daughters.
           G            Bm            F#m     E
Those watermelon smiles just can’t ripen underwater
Bm           F#m       E
Just can’t ripen underwater

A           F#m             C#m
The men all played along to marching drums
 F#m          C#m        A            E
And boy did they have fun behind the sea
         A        F#m              C#m
They sang, “so our matching legs are marching clocks
F#m       C#m          A        E
And we’re all too small to talk to god

Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two

Where summer's lasted longer than
C               D
Longer than we do
     C       Em      G
When nothing really mattered
           C             Em
Except for me to be with you
       C       Em    D
But in time we all forgot and
        G    
We all grew
     C                 Em
Your melody sounds as sweet
       D                 G
As the first time it was sung
        C     Em        G             D
With a little bit more character for show
            C                 Em
And by the time your father's heard
   Am
Of all the wrong you've done
         C       Em       Am   G
Then I'm putting out the lantern
           D            G
Find your own way back home
   G             Em
If I've forgotten how to sing
C                     G
Before I've sung this song
     G             Em
I'll write it all across this wall
 C                D
Before my job is done
         C    Em         G
And I'll even have the courtesy
    C              Em
Of admitting I was wrong
       C     Em     D                  G
As the final words before I'm dead and gone
             C         Em
You've never been so divine
     D             G
In accepting your defeat
         C     Em        G             D
And I've never been more scared to be alone
     C          Em             Am
If love is not enough to put my enemies to sleep
         C       Em      Am      G
Then I'm putting out the lantern
          D            G
Find your own way back home

As a storm with the car keys 
Bb        Eb
Spark your heels
   Dm              Gm        C 
Up against the picket fence I built
        Am                        Dm 
All your wishes they will sink like stones
Eb           Cm       F      
Slowly down a lonely well 
C  Am   F
Go spin circles for me
A 
Wound relentlessly 
           Dm
Around the words we used to sling 
C  Am   F
Oh, such torturous things 
Am                         Dm
Always chewing up the only ones 
I ever mean 
                      Am
If you're goin', then go
Eb Cm F 
Go go go
                      Am 
If you're goin', then go
Eb Cm F 
Go go go
