Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Next Four Months  Okkervil River

[G]Maybe we could [D]break your ankle, [Em]clean and unsus[C]piciously.
[G]An ER trip, a [D]doctor’s slip,
and [Em]you could share your [C]pills [G]with [Am]me.
[C]Won’t it feel so [G]good, though, when we’re [D]lying, [G]
[C]side by side, [G]can’t move, and I’m not t[D]rying?

[Em]2000 [G]milligrams [C]each.
[G]A hotel by the [D]pharmacy with [Em]drinking straws in [C]toothpaste tubes.
[G]Stash them with your [D]toiletries and [Em]I will share my [C]pills [G]with [Am]you.
[C]Little Michael [G]sleeping in the [D]child safety [G]seat,
[C]lying with the [G]windows rolled up, [D]in the August heat.
[Em]3000 [G]milligrams [C]each,
[Em]4000 [G]milligrams.[C]
[G]We’re driving down the [D]interstate,
you’re [Em]feeling great, you [C]scratch your wrist,
and [G]we pretend your [D]kids, your husband, [Em]all you left does [C]not [G]ex[Am]ist.
[C]And in some [G]motel that night we’re [D]ly[G]ing,
[C]I can barely [G]whisper “it’s like [D]dying.
[Em]Baby, do you [G]know what I [C]mean?
[Em]Well baby, did [G]you hear [C]me?
[Em]Well baby, [G]you fell a[C]sleep.”
[G]I know I’m weak, I [D]won't deny we’ll [Em]see our trial [C]sometime soon.
But [G]when i know we’re f[D]ucked,
I’ll halve the [Em]pile and share my [C]pills [G]with [Am]you.
[C]Cause we’ve felt [G]fully in our bodies,
[Am]and we’ve felt total[F]ly alive,
[C]so we’re prepared to [G]float above this
[Am]dirty bed where [F]we [C]both [Dm]lie.
Where we [F]lie, [C]lie, [Dm]lie. Will we [F]be [C]fine?
[F]Not [Em]this [C]time.
