A Perfect Sonnet

Bright Eyes

 C
 lately i've been wishing i had one desire
 Em
 something that would make me never want another
 Am
 something that would make it so that nothing matters
 D(b5)sus2
 all would be clear then  but i
 C
 guess i'll have to settle for a for a few brief
moments and
 Em
 watch all dissolve into a single second
 Am
and try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
 D(b5)sus2
or one foolish line
 FGAm
cauz that's all that you'll get so you'll have to
 D(b5)sus2
 accept
 FG
you are here and then you're gone
*sing the chorus now*
 C
but i believe that lovers should be tied together and
 Em
 thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather and
 Am
 left there to drown, left there to drown
 D(b5)sus2
in their innocence but
 C
 as for me i'm coming to the final chapter
 Em
read all of the pages and there is still no answer
 Am
 only all that was before i know must soon come after
 D(b5)sus2
that is the only way it can be
 FG
so i stand in the sun
 AmD(b5)sus2
and i breathe with my lungs
 FGAm
trying to spare myself the weight of the truth
saying
 C
 everything you have ever seen was just a mirror
 Em
and you've spent your whole life sweating in an
endless fever
 Am
and now you are laying ina bathtum full of freezing
 D(b5)sus2
water wishing you were a ghost
 C
but once you knew a girl and you named her lover
 Em
and danced with her in kitchens through the greenest

 Am
summer but autumn came, she disappeared
 D(b5)sus2
you don't remember where she said she was going to
 FGAm
but you know that she is gone because she left you a
 D(b5)sus2
 song
 FG
that you don't want to sing
 C
singing i believe that lovers should be chained
together
 Em
and thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
 Am
and left there to burn, left there to burn in their
 D(b5)sus2
 arrogance
 C
but as for me i'm coming to my final failure
 Em
i've killed myself with changes trying to make it
better
 Am
but i still ended up becoming something other than
 D(b5)sus2
 what i had planned to be...ALRIGHT!!! (C,Em,Am, D(b5))
 C
now i believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
 Em
and layed entwined together on a bed of clover
 Am
and left there to sleep, left there to dream of their
 D(b5)sus2D(b5)sus2
 happiness
