[D]Payphones all were ringing a[G]s the crowd went roa[A]ring by,[D]
[D]Lovely dancers swayin'[G] to an island lull[A]aby[D]
[D]Beside the southern ocean, ta[G]king thought of wha[A]t's to be[D]
[D]Writing you this letter[G] that you'll prob'ly n[A]ever see[D]
[G] [D] [A] [G] [D] [A] [G] [D] 
But I can'[A]t help but be ru[D]led by inconsistancies, now you need this distantly
in love.
[D]Tried to phone from Paris, t[G]hinking things could[A] be arranged[D]
[D] [G] [A] 
Me and you would roundez-v[D]ous, but I found your number changed
[D]So I drove to San Ramos w[G]here the crazy painter dw[A]ells[D]
[D]Toasted our old photogr[G]aphs still up there on[A] the shelves[D]
[G] [D] [A] [G] [D] [A] [G] [D] 
But I can't [A]help but be rul[D]ed by my intiguities, now you need this distantly
in love

[D]You had a new lover w[G]ho had stolen you aw[A]ay[D]
[D]That could be the reason [G]that I never got i[A]n touch[D]

You know I [D]can't help bu[A]t be part of my own philosophies, now you need this
distantly in
I've been playing this song for years, but I never actually wrote it down to
send it in until now. The best memory I have of this song is when Jimmy did
it acoustic both nights at Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA on the '94 Fruitcakes
tour. Anyhoo, Enjoy!
