The Awful Sweetness Of Escaping Sweat   Bright Eyes


The Awful Sweetness of Escaping Sweat

   Dm
we escape from the house
                               Am
as the day dissapears from the sky

Into night
                            C
we bacame what we wanted to be
       G          Am
like a dream or a ghost
  Dm
i collapse out of turn

near a house
                   Am
lying still in the grass and felt the heat from the ground
                  C          G          Am
rising up to contract and expand like a breath
   Dm
we escape from that place
                                    Am
soaked with sweat and the poison we drank
                                                C
fill the bathtub with ice, hope this fever will break
       G
like a heart
Am
easily
      Dm                    G
but i do not recall all the words that were formed
         Am
on those wire lips as they greeted me
  Dm                      G                          Am
a promise was made witout thought as the temperature climbed
      Dm                       G
and i started to sink like the moon
                   Am    E  C  Em  G
tends to do if you stare at it too long
         E              Am
then you blink and it's gone
       C            G              Am
and we crawl to our sleep with the dawn


Dm Am repeated with "isn't it the same mistake"

  Dm                                              Am
i awake in the light feeling hollow and selfishly warm
                                                     C
close the blinds and retreat until what's burning is gone
         G        Am
and it's light is away
           Dm
the we are back in the dark
                                      Am
chasing nothing through backyards and trees
                                                   C
you ripped your shirt on a fence but it didn't get me
          G
yeah it's fear
                Am
it makes you so low
          Dm
and these creatures look crooked
                                   Am
their shadows cut lines through my face and the concrete is fire
                       C
where my bare feet are placed
     G            Am
in a line next to yours
      Dm                           G
and i guess i'm not sure if it was fear that was born
         Am
as those awful eyes made their claim on us
         Dm
i put my hands on the fence
          G
said your name
                 Am

and i started to climb
       Dm                         G
and it must have been sweat but i drank it like wine
       Am     E  C     Em  G
it was sweet, my mouth was dry
            E                    Am
i heard you scream but i made no reply
      C              G        Am
i can still taste it now if i try


I'm hoping that's right. Enjoi     www.inastorytold.com
