Half The Time Lemonheads
There's a [D2]crow flyin' down from o[G6]ver the hill.[D2]
[G6]Cracked paint [D2]on my win[Em]dow sill.[A7]
Each m[D2]orning broke provides[G6] a gir[D2]l.
[G6]Forget my [D2]evening fee[Em]ling wor[A7]ld.
When [F#5]day gets dark [G5] it seeps into[A5] my skin.
And [F#5]I rcall the spa[G5]rk that kept me s[A5]ane.
[D2] Can't talk to you it's [G6]plain,[D2]
[G6]Won't start [D2]to name my [Em]pain,[A7]
[D2]Or forget I don't[G6] know why[D2]
You [G6]tugged the [D2]corner of [Em] my eye[A7].
[F#5]Movin' up [G5] the neck of my [A5] guitar.
[F#5]I turn the lamp off, [G5] I see where you [A5]are.
[A2] Your [D2]one light slowly [D2/B]fading in my mind.[A7]
[A7sus4] The [D2]furthest from my hea[Cadd9]d.
[G6/B]Half the [G5]time.
[D2]Simple point too [D2/B]bright to leave the sky.[A7]
[D2] You're dissolv[Cadd9]ing [G6/B]in my [G5]eye, [Dm]in my [G]eye.[F] [C]
[Dm]My closed [G]eye.[F] [C]
[Dm]Half the time.[G] [A5] [F5] [G5]
[E]Mountain Dew and [A2]Malboro,[E] While [A2]I stew over [E]er [F#m]all I ow[B7]e.
My [E]eyes set wet against [A2] the breez[E]e,
[A2]Guide the sun [E]into [F#m] the trees.[B7]
Where [G#5]squirrels are holding [A5]acorns in their [B5]teeth.
I [G#5]can't see into [A5]why I made you [B5]leave.[Badd11]
Your [E]one light slowly [C#m]fad--[C#m9]ing in my [Badd11]mind.
The [E]furthest from my head.[D2]
[C#m]Half the ti[A2]me.
A [E]simple point re[C#m]volv[C#m9]ing in my s[Badd11]ky.
[E] You're dissol[D2]ving [C#m]in my [A2]eye.

You don't know how you move me, deconstruct me, and consume me, I'm all
used up, I'm out of luck, I am starstruck, By something in your eyes.
That is keeping my hope alive. - Matthew Sweet
