Studying Stones

Ani Difranco

 Bb
Trying to learn to be less alive
 Ab
Using all of my will
 Bb
To keep very still
cm cm (add9)
Still even on the inside

cm
I've cut all of the pertinent wires
 Bb
So my eyes can't make that connection
 Ab
I am holding my breath
 Bb
I am feigning my death
cm cm(add9)
When I'm looking in your direction

~~~

 EbM
'Course numb is an old hat
 DbM
Old as my oldest memories
 Ab
See that one's my mother
 Bb
And that one's my father
cm cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me

 EbM
It's a skill I'd hoped to abandon
Bb?
When I got out on the open road
FM?
But any more pent up emotion
Bb? cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode

~~~
cm cm(add9)
There's never been an endeavor so strange
 Bb
As trying to slow the blood in my veins
 Ab
To keep my face blank
 Bb
As a stone that just sank
cm cm(add9)
Until not a ripple remains

cm cm(add9)
I am high above the tree line
 Bb
Sitting cross legged on the ground
 Ab
When all of the forbidden fruit
 Bb
has fallen and rotted
cm cm(add9)
That's when I'm gonna come down

~~~

 EbM
'Course numb is an old hat
 DbM
Old as my oldest memories
 Ab
See that one's my mother
 Bb
And that one's my father
cm cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me

 EbM
It's a skill I'd hoped to abandon
Bb?
When I got out on the open road
FM?
But any more pent up emotion
Bb? cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode

END ON:
