A Celebration Upon Completion

Bright Eyes

 C
my grandfather's name was moon
 C/B
because his eyes were bright and round
 G6C
and no amount of time or liquor could dull them

my grandmother's name was joy
 C/B
because it spilled out of her heart
 G6C
and bathed her precious children in its warmth
 C/B
and there was happiness in life beyond the sorrow and the pain
 G6C
but how they ever found it i cannot explain
 FG
i guess time has a way of making everything alright
 AmC
it's just there is not enough of it
 FG
and so we drink and we sing and we celebrate this lie
 AmC
and hope that it will last
F G C C C/B G6 C/g -->slide up 2 frets on B
morning is here night, has passed string & come back to C/g C
 C
my grandfather was a doctor
 C/B
he cured the sick with his kind hands
 G6C
and he taught me how to sail and how to find dry land

my grandmother was all sweetness
 C/B
and when she spoke we all heard bells
 G6C
and they rang in such a way that we were comforted
 C/B
and they held on to each other with all of the strength they had
 G6C
and they loved with devotion be-yond what i understand
 FG
but i guess fear has a way of making sleep unbearable
 AmC
and the days seem cold and long
 F
but we'll cry and we dance
 G6AmG6
 C  (hit x32013 2 or                           
and we stumble into love in awkward, perfect grace 3 times)

the moon is gone and the sun has took its place    (last line 2x)
