G - 320033 Cadd9 - x32033 D7 - xx0212 D - xx0232 G/F# - 200033 Em7 - 022033 [Verse] G Cadd9 They're tearing up streets again. D7 D They're building a new hotel. G Cadd9 D7 D The Mayor's out killing kids to keep taxes down, G Cadd9 D7 D and me and my anger sit folding a paper bird, G Cadd9 D7 D letting the curtains turn to beating wings. [Chorus] Cadd9 G G/F# Em7 Wish I had a socket-set to dismantle this morning. Cadd9 And just one pair of clean socks. D7 D And a photo of you. [Verse] G Cadd9 When you get off work tonight, D7 D meet me at the construction site, G Cadd9 D7 D and we'll write some notes to tape to the heavy machines, G Cadd9 like "We hope they treat you well. D7 D Hope you don't work too hard. G Cadd9 D7 D We hope you get to be happy sometimes." [Chorus] Cadd9 G G/F# Em7 Bring your swiss-army knife, and a bottle of something, Cadd9 D7 D and I'll bring some spraypaint and a new deck of cards. [Verse] G Cadd9 Hey I found the safest place D7 D To keep all our tenderness. G Cadd9 Keep all our bad ideas. D7 D Keep all our hope. G Cadd9 It's here in the smallest bones D7 D The feet and the inner-ear. G Cadd9 It's such an enormous thing D7 D To walk and to listen. [Chorus] Cadd9 G G/F# Em7 I'd like to fall asleep to the beat of you breathing Cadd9 D7 D in a room near a truckstop on a highway somewhere. [Verse] G Cadd9 You are a radio. D7 D You are an open door. G Cadd9 I am a faulty string D7 D Of blue christmas lights. G Cadd9 You swim through frequencies. D7 D G Cadd9 D7 D You let that stranger in, as I'm blinking off and on and off again. [Chorus] Cadd9 We've got a lot of time. G G/F# Em7 Or maybe we don't, Cadd9 D7 D but I'd like to think so, so let me pretend. [Verse] G Cadd9 These are my favourite chords. D7 D I know you like them too. G Cadd9 D7 D When I get a new guitar, you can have this one G Cadd9 And sing me a lullaby. D7 D Sing me the alphabet. G Cadd9 D7 Sing me a story I haven't heard yet.
