C Em* Am
I hear you've got a pocket full of words
That you keep in the [Dsus2/F#]garage
Together with the [F]feather and the fireworks
C Em* Am
A surftown hero who's got one foot in the garden
[Dsus2/F#]Where the neon-lighted cocktail glasses [F]bloom
C Em* Am
And they built you a model airplane
Like the [Dsus2/F#]one that brought you back to Lindbergh[F] field
C Em* Am
Now you're counting your change by the streetlights on India
[Dsus2/F#]"Hey, it's me again, I'm [F]faded...could I please come over?"

Verse 2
C Em* Am
Old gap-toothed Annie was a friend of mine
[Dsus2/F#]The third time around she was [F]born again
C Em* Am
She must have burned at least a half-a-million dollars
[Dsus2/F#]In the little rooms next door to wash-[F]and-fold
C Em* Am
And there ain't no consolation prize
[Dsus2/F#]There is no backdoor to [F]innocence
C Em* Am
Just the wild-eyed faces and names that you've forgotten
[Dsus2/F#]"Hey, the money's gone, [F]I'm broken, could I please come over?"
