Armchairs  Andrew Bird













[C] [G]  
[C]I dreamed you were a cosmonaut
[G]of the space between our chairs
[C]And I was a cartographer
[G]of the tangles in your hair
[F]I sang the song that silence sings
[F]It's the one that everybody knows, everybody [C]knows
The song that silence sings
And this is how it [G]goes
(2nd fill)
[C]These looms that weave apocrypha
[G]they're hanging from a strand
[C]The dark and empty rooms were full
[G]of incandescent hands
[F]The awkward pause
[F]The fatal flaw
[F]Time, it's a crooked bow
Time is a crooked [C]bow
[C]In time you need to learn, to love
The ebb just like the [G]flow
[D7]Grab hold of your [B5]bootstraps, and pull like [Em]hell
until gravity feels sorry for [Am]you, and lets you g[D]o
As if you [G]lack the proper chemicals to [C]know, [C/B]oh
t[Am]he way it felt the last time you [B5]let yourself [F]fall this low
Time's a crooked [C]bow
Time's a crooked[F#/D7] bow
Time, it's a crooked [F]bow [G] [C]
[F]Fifty-five and t[G]hree-eighths years later
[F]At the bottom of[G] a gigantic crater
[F]An armchair calls to [G]you
Yeah, thi[F]s armchair calls t[G]o you
It says,[C] someday, we'll get back at them all
With epoxy and a pair of [G]pliers
[C]As ancient sea slugs begin to crawl
[G]through the ragweed and barbed wire
[C]You didn't write
You didn't [G]call
[F]It didn't cross your mind at [G]all
[C]Through the waves
waves of hay and [G]straw
[F]You couldn't feel a thing at [G]all
[F]Fifty-five and three-eighths
Fifty-five and three-eighths
F to G repeats, end on F.
