C6/9                            Fsus2add4       F
I'm travelling in some vehicle, sitting in some cafe
  Fsus2add4                      F                 C 
A defector from the petty wars that shell shock love away
C6/9                            Fsus2add4            F
There's comfort in melancholy, when there's no need to explain
             Fsus2add4       F                     C
It's just as natural as the weather in this moody sky today
                  Fadd9                          C
In our possessive coupling so much could not be expressed
              Fadd9                   Gadd9add4                     G9add4
So now I am returning to myself these things that you and I supressed
Gadd9add4                      Fadd9                      C
I see something of myself in everyone, just at this moment of the world
                     Gadd9add4                       Fadd9
As snow gathers like bolts of lace, waltzing on a ballroom girl

Dm11  Eb6/9

You know it never has been easy whether you do or you do not resign
Whether you travel the breadth of extremities or stick to some straighter line
Now here's a man and a woman sitting on a rock
They're either going to thaw out or freeze
Listen... strains of Benny Goodman coming through the snow and the pinewood trees
I'm porous with travel fever but you know I'm so glad to be on my own
Still sometimes the slightest touch of a stranger can set up trembling in my bones
I know no one's going to show me everything we all come and go unknown
Each so deep and superficial, between the forceps and the stone

Well I looked at the granite markers, those tributes to finality, to eternity
And then I looked at myself here, chicken scratching for my immortality
In the church they light the candles and the wax rolls down like tears
There is the hope and the hopelessness, I've witnessed thirty years
We're only particles of changes I know, I know orbiting around the sun
But how can I have that point of view when I'm always bound and tied to someone
White flags of winter chimneys waving trace against the moon
In the mirrors of a modern bank from the window of a hotel room

I'm travelling in some vehicle, I'm sitting in some cafe
A defector from the petty wars until love suck me back that way
