Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Language Or The Kiss  Indigo Girls


i don�t know [C]if it was real or in a[Am] dream
lately [Dm]waking up i�m not sure where i�ve [F]been    [G]
there was a [C]table set for six and five were [Am]there
i stood out[Dm]side and kept my eyes upon that e[F]mpty chair[G]
there was steam on the windows from the kitchen
laughter like the language i once spoke with ease
but i�m made mute by the virtue of decision
i choose most of your life goes on without me


[Dm]oh the fear i�ve [F]known[G]

that i might r[C]eap the praise of [Am]strangers
and e[F]nd up on my o[G]wn
and [Dm]all i�ve sown was a [F]song
but m[G]aybe i was wrong [Dm]
verse 2

i said to you the one gift i'd adore
is a package of the next 10 years as they're unfolding
"package of the next 10 years unfolding"
but you told me if i had my way i�d be bored
and i knew enough to bless one of your scoldings

when we last talked we were lying on our backs
"lying on our backs"
looking up at the sky we were looking through the ceiling
"looking at the sky" "looking through the ceiling"
i used to lie like that alone out on the driveway
i was trying to read the greek upon the stars the alphabet of feeling

chorus 2

oh i knew back then
it was a calling that said if joy then pain
the sound of the voice these years later
is still the same


verse 3 accapello

i am alone in a hotel room tonight
i squeeze the sky out but there�s not a star appears
begin my studies with this paper and this pencil
and i�m working through the grammar of my fears

chorus 3
oh mercy me what i won't give
"oh mercy save me"
to have the things that mean the most
not to be the things i'd miss
the unforgiving choice still is
the language or the kiss
yes it is

thanks yall (obligatory)
