Seas Too Far to Reach  Okkervil River

Pt I.
The la[A]dies in my dream- so ob[D]liging.
They c[E]ome on down to do the things I [A]need.[E]
Whether s[A]kies are calm or cut apart by[D] lightning,
They?re [E]always there to minister to [A]me.
Pt. II
And a[F#m]t break of dawn, they?re sweetly [A]shining.
Or at[F#m] quiet of midnight, cold and [E]dim, They say ?don?t harm [D]him.?
And when I [E]wake just as their eyes are cryin[A]g,[D]
I see that[F#m] bed and I just want to climb back [E]in.
But l[F#m]et?s gather up your fri[D]ends and drive up [A]to that country i[E]nn.
We ca[F#m]n stay there, feeling w[D]ater warmly w[A]ash across our sk[E]in,
Givin[D]g back all of our te[E]ars so that we can c[A]ry them again.
[E] [E] [F#m] [F#m]  
[D] [D] [E] [E]  
Pt. I
You w[A]ant to tell your dad you can?t believe he?[D]s dying,
But let?s just [E]walk on down the hall and shut our [A]mouths[E].
The AM r[A]adio is broken down and [D]crying
As on this ho[E]ur drive we?re silent to ours[A]elves.
Pt. II
Let[F#m]?s go back up to your house, and take our[A] clothes off.
And[F#m] just push and pull ourselves until we?re [E]deep inside o[D]f sleep.
And with your b[E]ody next to me, its sleepy sigh[A]ing[D]
Sounds like [F#m]waves upon a sea too far to re[E]ach.
Pt. III ( with slight differences)
But I[F#m]?ll gather up my [D]men and try to [A]sail on it ag[E]ain,
And w[F#m]e?ll walk and quietly t[D]alk all through the [A]country of your s[E]kin,
Made up of [F#m]pieces of the pl[D]aces that you?ve d[A]reamed and that y[E]ou?ve been.
And we will s[D]leep outside in te[A]nts upon this un[F#M]familiar land,[E]
And in the m[D]orning we?ll a[E]wake, yeah, as a f[F#m]oreign dawning break[D]s,
My men and [A]I will all [E]awake. Let's try again.[A]
[E] [E] [F#m] [F#m]  
[D] [D] [E] [E]  
Repeat Pt. III Chords through the La La La's
