 C
 I dreamed you were a cosmonaut
 G
 of the space between our chairs
 C
 and I was a cartographer
 G
 of the tangles in your hair
 Am/F
 I sighed a song that silence brings
it's the one that everybody knows
oh everybody knows
 C
 the song that silence sings
G (intro riff)
and this was how it goes
 C
 these looms that weave apocryphal
 G
 they're hanging from a strand
 C
 these dark and empty rooms were full
 G
 of incandescent hands
 Am/F
 an awkward pause
 Am/F
 a fatal flaw
 Am/F
 time it's a crooked bow
 C
oh time's a crooked bow
in time you need to learn to love
 G
the ebb just like the flow
 D7Bm7
 grab hold of your bootstraps
 Em
and pull like hell,
 EAm
'til gravity feels sorry for you,
 D
and lets you go
 GCC/B
as if you lack the proper chemicals to know, oh
 AmBm
the way it felt the last time you let yourself
 Am/F
 fall this low
 Am/F
 time, oh time
 C
it's a crooked bow
 C/F#
time's a crooked bow
 C/FC/G
time's a crooked bow     
 FG
 fifty-five and three-eighths years later
 FG
 at the bottom of this gigantic crater
 FG
an armchair calls to you 
 FG
yeah this armchair calls to you
 C
and it says that some day
 Cmaj7
we'll get back at them all
 G
with epoxy and a pair of pliers 
 CCmaj7
 as ancient sea slugs begin to crawl
 G
through the ragweed and barbed wire
 CG
 you didn't write you didn't call
 FG
 it didn't cross your mind at all
 C
and through the waves
 G
the waves of a.m. squall
 FG
 you couldn't feel a thing at all
 Am/FG
your fifty-five and three-eighths tall 
 Am/FG
fifty-five and three-eighths tall 
 Am/FG
