Gabriel  Emmy The Great

[C]gabriel this is the [G]last
[Am]chapter of our corres[Em]pondence
[F]i hope that after time goes [C]past
[F]you can remember me with [G]fondness

[C]i think as i am thinking [G]now
[Am]of all the pages that have [Em]seen us
[F]laid out an ending in [C]between us
[F]and we can walk them like the [G]ground

[F]i know my fate i do not mean to [G]fight
[C]but you tread [C/B]softly on the [Am]ground tonight
[F]tread softly on the [G]words you used to [C]write
[C]oh gabriel i see you [G]there
[Am]that day i met you in the [Em]orchard
[F]and i was younger then i wore my [C]hair
[F]in bows across my [G]forehead
[C]soon they will twist it at the[G] shoulder
[Am]and fix it with clasps against my [Em]neck
[F]and i do not think you would know [C]her
[F]if you could see what they [G]reflect
[F]i've seen my future in an [G]evening dress
[C]all wrapped in [C/B]tapestry and [Am]fur i guess
[F]remember me the [G]way you knew me [C]best
[C]oh gabriel i have [G]kept
[Am]everything you sent me
everything you [Em]put to paper b[F]ut
it's better to fo[C]rget
and fill your head with [F]memories
think that you will [G]thank me later
[C]oh gabriel i wish that [G]i
[Am]could pick you up and fold you like a [Em]ribbon
[F]i'd hold you always and in [C]secret
[F]in the pockets of my [G]clothes
[C]but this is how i live my [G]life
[Am]with all the parts that i was [Em]given
[F]this is the heart that i was [C]given
[F]and what you're given can't be [G]sold
[F]i see my future in an evening [G]dress
[C]all wrapped in [C/B]tapestry and [Am]fur i guess
[F]remember the [G]way you knew me [C]best
[F]i know my fate i do not mean to [G]fight
[C]but you tread [C/B]softly on the ground [Am]tonight
[F]tread softly on the [G]words you used to [C]write
[F]i know my fate i do not mean to [G]fight
[C]but you tread [C/B]softly on the ground [Am]tonight
[F]tread softly on the [G]words you used to [Am]write
