Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Oh Comely  Neutral Milk Hotel

[E]Oh comely [C]
I will be with you when you lose your [E]breath
Chasing the only[C] meaningful memory you thought you had [E]left
With some pretty bright and bubbly [C]terrible scene
That was doing her thing on your [E]chest
But oh comely   [C]
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to [G]guess
In your memory you're drunk on your artery (???)
It [C]doesn't mean anything at al[E]l

Oh comely  [C]
All of your friends are letting you [E]blow
Bristling and ugly [C]
Bursting with fruits falling out from the [E]holes
Of some pretty bright and bubbly [C]friend
You could need to say comforting things in your [E]ear
But oh comely    [C]
There isn't such one friend that you could find [G]here
Standing next to me
He's only my enemy
I'll [C]crush him with everything I own
[G]say what you want to say
and painful your always [C]moving your mouth
to pull out all your mirac[E]les away f[C]or [D]me [G]   [D]   [G]   [D]   [G]   [D]   [E]

[E]Your father made fetuses
With flesh licking ladies
While [C]you and your mother
Were asleep in the trailer park
[E]Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums
The [C]music and medicine you needed for comforting
So [E]make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving
And [C]pluck all your silly strings
And bend all your notes for me
[E]Soft silly music is meaningful magical

The [C]movements were beautiful
All in your ovaries
[E]All of them milking with green fleshy flowers
While [C]powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines
[E]Smelling of semen all under the garden
Was [C]all you were needing when you still believed in me

[E](Da [C]da da part)

[E]I know they buried her body with others
Her [C]sister and mother and 500 families
And [E]will she remember me 50 years later
I [C]wished I could save her in some sort of time machine
[E]Know all your enemies
We [C]know who are enemies are
Am E (x3)

[Am]Goldaline my dear
We will fold and freeze together
[E]Far away from here
There is sun and spring and green forever
But [Am]now we move to feel
For ourselves inside some stranger's stomach
[E]Place your body here
Let your skin begin to blend itself with [Am]mine[E]

[Am]de de de de de [E]la da da da
