The Center Of The World  Bright Eyes


-------| and so on
[G]At the center of the [Bm]world there's a statue of a [Am]girl
She is standing near a [C]well with a [D]bucket bare and [G]dry
I went and looked her in the [Bm]eyes and she turned me into [Am]sand
This clumsy form that I des[C]pise, it scattered [D]easy in her [G]hand
It came to rest upon a [Bm]beach with a million others [Am]there
We sat and waited for the [C]sea to stretch out so that [D]we could disap[G]pear
Into the endlessness of [Bm]blue into the horror of the [Am]truth
See, we are far less than we [C]knew, yeah, we are [D]far less than we [Em]knew
[Em]But we knew what we could [C]taste
[Em]Girls found honey to drench our hands
The men cut marble to mark our [B]graves
[B]Said we'll need something to
(mostly the lower notes for this part)

[G]             [B]            [Am]            [C]           [D]                                                

[G]remind us of
All the sweetness that has [B]passed through us
The priests dressed children for a [Em]choir
But found no joy in what was [B]sung
[B]The [C]funeral [D]had [D]be[G]gun
[G]In the middle of the [Bm]day when you drive home to your [Am]place
From that job that makes you [C]sleep back to the [D]thoughts that keep you a[G]wake
L[Am]ong after night has come to claim any light that still remains
In the corner of the [C]frame          [D]
(lower notes again for this part)

that you put around her f[G]ace

Two [Bm]pills just weren't enough
The [Am]alarm clock's going off but you're not waking up
This isnt [C]happening happening happening happening [D]happening
It is [G]
end riff (something like this)
