The Dangling Conversation   Simon & Garfunkel

                [C]It's a still life [B]water [D]color
                [C]Of a now late [B]after[D]noon
                As the [C]sun shines [B]through the [Am]curtain lace
                And [G]shadows wash the room [E]   [F#]
                [Em]And we sit and drink our coffee
                [F]Cast in our indifference, like [E]shells upon the shore
                You can [D]hear the ocean roar
                In the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, and the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
                The borders of our l[G]ives[Em]    [F#]

                [C]And you read your [B]Emily [D]Dickenson
                [C]And I my [B]Robert [D]Frost
                And we [C]note our [B]place with [Am]bookmarkers
                That [G]measure what we've lost [E]   [F#]
                [Em]Like a poem porely written
                We are [F]verses out of rhythm, [E]Couplets out of rhyme
                In [D]syncopated time
                And the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
                Are the borders of our [G]lives [Em]    [F#]

                [C]Yes we speak of [B]things that [D]matter
                With [C]words that [B]must be [D]said
                Can[C] analy[B]sis be [Am]worthwhile
                Is the [G]theatre really dead
                [Em]And how the room is softly faded
                And I [F]only kiss your shadow, I [E]cannot feel your hand
                You're a [D]stranger now unto me
                Lost in the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
                In the borders of our [G]lives [Em]     [F#]
