Love To A Monster  Okkervil River

Lo[D]ver, now that you've le[F#m]ft me, I'm glad you're un[Bm]lovely.

Becuase if you could ta[G]ke all the heat in your he[D]art and just hang it from [A]you,

I [D]wouldn't be able to bea[F#m]r the way you cannot lov[Bm]e me.
It's much easier [G]of me make a mo[A]nster out of y[D]ou.
And[D] so here I go, substi[F#m]tuting the glow from your [Bm]temples,
all our sighs and our t[G]rembles, [D]and each last lette[A]r sent you
fr[D]om the cheap little pen of this w[F#m]eak little man- the one[Bm] singing
- out his jangling, ri[G]nging and hopefully sti[A]nging attack upon yo[D]u.
Yeah, [D]so here I go, just exp[F#m]loding the hope we'll be sp[Bm]eaking
some day, years from now, [G]seeking f[D]riendship and unders[A]tanding.
Yeah, [D]I hope you get angry, a[F#m]nd hurt, and have the hardest of la[Bm]ndings.
And I hope your new m[G]an thinks of me when he s[A]ees what a number I did on y[D]ou.
I grow ti[D]red of this song. Turn my ey[F#m]es to the blonde in the blea[Bm]chers.
She's a lovely young cre[G]ature. [D]I think she's seeking adve[A]nture.
I think she's re[D]ady to see that the wo[F#m]rld isn't so sweet or so te[Bm]nder.
I won't break her, just b[G]end her, and make her in[A]to my new ringer for y[D]ou.
I stay in the s[D]ame comfy town, write the sa[F#m]me old songs down, drive the s[Bm]ame streets,
seek the same sense of d[G]ull peace, w[D]hisper the same sweet words to the [A]chippies.
The same wa[D]lk by the road and where the sa[F#m]me muddy snow's finally l[Bm]eaving,
But i'll fight off the spring[G]; I don't want lovely th[A]ings,I don't want the earth n[D]ew.
