I Thought You Were God

Clare Bowditch and The Feeding Set

 BbEb
 Storeman, your eyes all watery white.
 F
"Another long long night?" and you say
 BbEbF
"Be careful riding that boy's bike in the dark."  
 Gm
"Don't worry, I'm not going far."

Chorus

 EbFGm
I was very very young and terribly in love
 EbFGmEb
and not yet knowing that love alone may not be enough
 FGmEb
to undo all the silly things I thought.      
 FBb
 I thought you were God.

Verse 2
The night sky is peeling back her sheets.
And the linen is lavender and underneath it
I ride your bike, bike bars cutting into my crotch.
I stand up and power-pedal on.

Chorus
I was very, very young and terribly in love,
not yet knowing that love alone may not be enough
to counter all the stupid things I thought.
I thought you were God.

And I, I believed in you.

Verse 3
We still talk, we still talk quite a lot
since the alarming discovery that you were never God and
we still love, but the laughter's more sincere,
'cause it's speckled with your tears.

Chorus
You were so young and terribly in love,
not yet knowing that love alone may not be enough
to undo all the secret things I thought.

I thought you were God.
