Classic Cars

Bright Eyes

 EA
 She was a real royal lady, true patron of the arts
 BmC#A
 She said the best country singers die in the back of classic cars
 EA
 So if I ever got too hungry for a suitcase or guitar
 EBmE
 To think of them all alone in the dark
 EA
 So I laid some nights beside her in a bed made for a queen
 BmC#A
 She said I kissed her different, that all the men her age were mean
 EA
 Gave me anything I wanted, Oh the generosity
 EBmE
 I took all that I could, it was free
 EA
 Now the sky is a torn up denim and the clouds are just splattered paint
 BmC#A
It's a room I'm renovating; it's a name I got to change
 EA
 If I get out of California I'm going back to my home state
 EBmE
To tell them all that I made a mistake
 A
 And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
 Bm
 Lighting candles to a cynical saint
 EBmC#A
 Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
 Bm
 You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
 EBmC#A
 From the panicked paradox of day to day   
 EBmC#A
 If you can't understand something then it's best to be afraid   

The whole world it loves you if you are a chic chameleon
Intersecting circles she could hang with anyone
But when conducting business she would lie about where she's from
Saying, "Life is how it is not how it was"
I learned to listen felt like I was back at school
She'd talk forever about the phases of the moon
Saying, "Everything is a cycle, you've got to let it come to you
And when it does, you will know what to do"
Without even knowing I guess I took her advice
Painted her front door it seemed a suitable goodbye
It's not that often but I think of her sometimes
Just something quaint, a couple ships in the night

And they keep moving at a glacial pace
Turning circles in a memory maze
I made a new cast of the death mask that is gonna cover my face
I had to change the combination to the safe

Hide it all behind a wall let people wait
And never trust a heart that is so bent it can't break
