Goose Eggs  Joanna Newsom

What we built, a[B]t the kiln that [F#]won't be stilled[A]
Did not [G]set well:
[B]The old veil of desire[F#]
Like the vessels that we[A] fired
Fell thi[G]n as eggshells
[Bm]And every season, somebo[D]dy burns
Downtown, taking turns-
[C]Taking a bus, to take a train an[G]d just plain vamoose
[Bm]Now the wind blows coals over the hills.[D] Honey
I've been paying my bills
[C]But honey it's been a long time since I'[G]ve come to any use
[Bm]And it hurt me bad, when I heard the news
[D]That you'd got that call, and could not refuse
[A](A goose, alone, I suppose, can know the lonelin[E]ess of geese
[E]Who never find their peace, whet[D]her North, or South, or [A]West, or East, W[F#m]est or East;
[E]And I could never find my way
[D]To being the kind of friend you seemed t[A]o need in me
[G]Till the needing[F] had ceased.)
