Plans for the Future Said the Whale
[C]Daylight is f[F]ading like an a[C]wkward smile[Am]
[E]Sun hides behi[F]nd the w[C]est coast
[Am]I thought, I t[E]hought I knew
I had eve[F]rything f[C]igured out
[Am]'Til ni[E]ght ca[F]me and I lost my s[C]hadow
[Am]Ble[E]nded with moon[F]light and br[C]oken glass
[Am]Ten h[E]ours of pa[F]nic will fo[C]llow
[Am]I wa[E]tch the trees look black
My r[F]ed shirt in is tur[C]ning grey
[Am]Str[E]ange things just wo[F]n't stop appe[C]aring!
[E]Give me day, give me light
These days, those days
[Am]I w[E]as taught to bot[F]tle my emp[C]tiness
[Am]Deal [E]with my qua[F]rter-life angst by painting pi[C]ctures
[Am]Tip[E] of my pencil descr[F]ibes what I mi[C]ght have drawn
[Am]Had[E] my left brain and r[F]ight hand been in co[C]ntact
[E]Broken section is now, read on
[Dm]Then all at o[G]nce, the s[C]ky started ra[Am]ining
[Dm]Soaked to the [G]bone, sto[C]pped!
[Dm]People of nig[G]httime, c[C]ame out of h[Am]iding
[Dm]One of them tu[G]rned my w[C]ay
She said: "[Dm]I'd like to te[G]ll you
Some thi[C]ngs I wished I[Am]'d known
[Dm]When I was yo[G]ung like [C]you
[Dm]It won't take a se[G]cond
But it co[C]uld save you y[Am]ears
[Dm]Years passed like s[G]econds out h[C]ere"

I was enthralled with the way that
She spoke so softly
For a lady of her finesse and personal hygiene
She had cuts, bruises, scr*pes, scratches
Hair tangled everywhere
She spoke in a way that demanded my attention
You're at the top of your game
You're in control of your life
Pearl of the oyster
The cream of the (?)
What I would give for that, I hope you never know
[C]So live your life!
Don't sleep through the n[Am]ight!
[F]Life's worth a living!
You gotta start living it r[G]ight!
So live your l[Am]ife!
Don't sleep through the d[C]ay!
[F]Dreams are for living!
You gotta stop letting them di[G]e
