Mountain Goats - Collapsing Stars

Tuning:  Standard
Intro:  Dm

            Dm                           A  
when we hid out behind the risers at the high school,
         G                          Dm
working bitter calculations with a slide rule.
             Dm                         A
the grim particulars of poisoning the swimming pool,
G                          A
well you looked me in the eye,
         Dm      G
ready to die.
Dm                       A
we were becoming what we are,
collapsing stars.

         Dm                             A  
when we chewed up pseudoephedrine like bubble gum,
         G                                      Dm
til our hearts were beating as deep and rich as kettle drums
        Dm                            A  
we knew if we waited long enough the change would come.
             G                   A
and then the day did come and at last
     Dm          G
hold tight. hold fast.
Dm                   A
catch lightning in a jar,
collapsing stars. 

G                          Dm
I told you to load up on provisions,
       G                         Dm
because we wouldn't be back for a while.
G                             Dm
pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
G                          A
turn toward the camera and smile, smile, smile.

         Dm                         A  
when we ditched the plan to poison all our enemies,
         G                                      Dm
stuffed our weapons in a clearing, and covered them with leaves,
         Dm                         A  
we are going to come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves
             G                   A
one day, and we are on our way.
     Dm          G
you can look, but you won't find
Dm                   A
another love like ours,
collapsing stars.
Outro:  Dm A G Dm (x3),  Dm A Dm
