Verse 1: (0:28-)
    ||Eb                       |
We're character actors from the Tower of Babel
  |Bb                  |     /C  /D  
Be-wildered, burned out hard-ly  able
  |Eb               |               |
To   sit astride the high wire cable
|Bb                       |          /C  Bb  ||
   It's hard to balance, a little un-sta-ble.

|Abmaj7                       |Ab             |
       Through broken eyes and contact lenses
       I Watched you draw your future tenses
|Bbmaj7                   |Bb                
       See kisses of flame blow out of your lips
       |Bbmaj7                |Bb         ||
 You're back telling me your A-pocalypse.

Chorus 1: (0:57-)

 Don't get me wrong, (yeah) I'll be strong
        |               |Gm        |F  Bb ||6/8 
When the slowburn sunset come along
|Ab              Bb  ||4/4  Eb        ||
   You've gotta stay        the night

|Gm    |F   Bb  ||6/8 

|Ab        Bb            ||4/4  Db        ||
   I gotta think that you       might.

Interlude: (1:18-) 
|Bb   ||Eb    |     |Bb    |    /C  /D || (X 2)

[Verse 2] (1:33-)

 We've tried a handful of bills and a handful of pills
 We've tried making movies from a volume of stills
 The words fell like hailstones, bouncing at our feet,
 Covering our feelings with a frozen sheet.

 A chance to move, I take a shot
 I get cold - you get hot
 We look outside, lyin' awake
 See birds breaking surface on a silent lake.

[Chorus 2] (2:02-)

 But don't get me wrong, (yeah) I'll be strong
 When I'm back on the Isle of Avalon

 Dont get me wrong, (yeah) I'll be strong
 When the slow burn sunset come along
 You've got to stay the night
 I've got to think that you might.

Coda: (2:40-)
|Fm      |Gm        
    Don't try to make it easy, 
     |Ab             |Bb  Bbsus4|3/4  ||4/4
It'll cut you down to size
|Fm              |Gm        
    Darlin' we've got to trust in something
     |Ab                 |Bb  Bbsus4|3/4  ||
We're   shooting down our skies

||3/4 Ab   || (X 7 bars)

|4/4 G#m        |C#m  |G#m         |C#m     ||
