Bright Eyes

 G
 I spent a week drinking the sunlight of Winnetka, California
Where they understand the weight of human hearts
You see, sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you
With the fear that it eventually departs

 CDGEm
And the truth is I’ve been dreaming of some tired tranquil place
 CDG
Where the weather won’t get trapped inside my bones
 CDGEm
And if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face
 CDG
Then it's there I'll plant these seeds and make my home

 G
 I spent a day dreaming of dying in Mesa, Arizona
Where all the green of life had turned to ash
And I felt I was on fire, with the things I could have told you
I just assumed that you eventually would ask

 CDGEm
And I wouldn’t have to bring up my so badly broken heart
 CDG
And all those months I just wanted to sleep
 CDGEm
And though spring, it did come slowly; I guess it did its part
 CDG
My heart has thawed and continues to beat

 G
 And I visited my brother on the outskirts of Olympia
Where the forest and the water become one
And we talked about our childhood
Like a dream we were convinced of
That perfect, peaceful street that we came from

 CDGEm
And I know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple chords
 CDG
As I sat inside my room so long ago
 CDGEm
And it hurts that he’s still shaking from those secrets that were told
 CDG
By a car closed up too tight and a heart turned cold

(MUTE ALL STINGS)
And I went to San Diego, and the birthplace of the summer
And watched the ocean dance under the moon
There was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover
I guess that something’s gotta happen soon

 CDGEm
Cause I know I can’t keep living in this dead or dying dream
 CDG
As I walked along the beach and drank with her
 CDGEm
I thought about my true love, the one I really need
 CDG
With eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure

 G
 They make me pure, they make me pure
 CDG
long to be with you
 G
 They make me pure, they make me pure
 CD/AG
And I long to be with you
