Recessional  Vienna Teng


(most of the dyads can be played using the low E and A strings)
Cm(no 5th)
it's so beautiful here, she says,
Bb(no 3rd) Ab(no 3rd)
this moment now. and this moment, now.
Fm7(no 3rd) Cm
and I never thought I would find her here:
[Bb]flannel and satin, my four walls trans[Ab]formed.
but she's [Cm]looking at [Bb]me, s[Gm7]traight to ce[Ab]nter,
[Cm]no room at [Bb]all for [Gm7]any other tho[Ab]ught.
Cm(no 5th) Bb(no 3rd) Adim(no 3rd) Ab(no 3rd)
and I know I don't want this. oh I swear I don't want this.
there's a [Fm7]reason not to [Gm]want this [Fm]but I fo[Ab]rgot.
(single notes: Eb-Bb-G-F)
in the [Cm]terminal she s[Bb]leeps on my s[Ab-Abmaj7-Ab]houlder,
[Cm]hair falling fo[Cm7]rward, [Gm7]mouth all askew.
[Fm7]fluorescent announcements beat their [Cm]wings overhead:
[Bb]passengers missing, we're [AbMA7/G]looking for [Ab]you.
and she [Cm]dreams through the [Bb]noise, her [Gm7]weight aga[Ab]inst me,
[Cm]face pressed in[Bb]to the c[Gm7]orduroy g[Ab]rooves.
Cm Bb Adim(no 3rd) Ab
maybe it means nothing, maybe it means nothing,
may[Cm]be it means [Bb]nothing, but [Gm7]I'm afraid to[Ab] move.
Trumpet solo:
Trumpet single notes: Eb-Bb- G - F
Chord progression: Cm-Cm-Ab-Bb
(repeat 4x, hold Bb one additional bar the 4th time)
and the wo[Cm]rds: they're ev[Bb]erything and n[Ab]othing.
I want to [Cm]search for [Bb]her in the [Gm7]offhand re[Ab]marks.
who are y[Fm7]ou, taking coffee, no su[Cm]gar?
who are y[Bb]ou, echoing s[Gm7]treet [Ab]signs?
who are [Cm]you, the str[Bb]anger in the s[Gm7]hell of a l[Ab]over,
[Cm]dark curtains [Bb]drawn by the [Gm7]passage of [Ab]time?
Eb Eb/G Adim(no3rd) Bb7(no 5th)
oh words like rain, how sweet the sound.
well an[Cm(add6)]yway, she [Bb]says, I'll [Gm7]see you ar[Ab]ound...
