Exiles Among You  The Weakerthans

[Intro] 
[E](x[E/Eb]2)[B] [A]
[Verse] 
[E]Her body is a difficult [E/Eb]sister and she [A]loves her
[E]And hides her somewhere in her[E/Eb]self, safe from [A]harm
[E]She's barely coasting into a [E/Eb]paycheck, stuck on [A]empty
[E]Her blue eyes frozen green in the [E/Eb]low-lit AT[A]M
[Pre-Cborus] 
I [F#m]need a way to measure the [A]distance
I [F#m]need a way to say [C#m]why
Out of [A]breath or out of key
[F#m]Her voice re[C#m]sonated in [E]me[E/Eb] [B]
[Cborus] 
[A]Wish on every[E]th[E/Eb]ing[B]
[A]Pray that she re[E]ma[E/Eb]ins[B]
[A]Proud and strange and [C#m]so hopelessly [Esus2]hopeful
[Verse] 
[E]Her body is a difficult [E/Eb]sister and she [A]loves her
[E]And hides her somewhere in her[E/Eb]self, safe from [A]harm
[E]Her night shift is over, she's [E/Eb]writing you a [A]postcard
To [E]say that she's okay and it's [E/Eb]raining there [A]again
[Pre-Cborus] 
My [F#m]fury's rising faster than b[A]us fares
Could [F#m]someone clarify [C#m]why
There's no [A]structured narrative?
[E]No neat story[C#m]line to ex[E]pl[E/Eb]ain[B]
[Cborus] 
[A]Wish on every[E]th[E/Eb]ing[B]
[A]Pray that she re[E]ma[E/Eb]ins[B]
[A]Proud and strange and [C#m]so hopelessly [Esus2]hopeful
[Cborus] 
[A]Wish on every[E]th[E/Eb]ing[B]
[A]Pray that she re[E]ma[E/Eb]ins[B]
[A]Proud and strange and [C#m]so hopelessly [Esus2]hopeful
[Cborus] 
[E]Wishes and [E/Eb]prayers are the [B]way
[A]Wish on everything
[E]That we leave the [E/Eb]lonely a[B]lone
[A]Pray that she remains
[E]And push the [E/Eb]wounded a[B]way
[A]Proud and strange and [C#m]so hopelessly [Esus2]hopeful
[Break] 
[E] [G#m] [C#m] [B] [A]  
[Bridge] 
She [E]shoplifts some Christmas gifts and a bracelet for her[G#m]self
And considers phoning [C#m]home, has some [B]quarters in her [A]hand
But she [E]sits down on the sidewalk and bites her bottom [G#m]lip
And spends the after[C#m]noon willing [B]traffic lights to [A]change
[Break] 
[E](x[G#m]6) [C#m] [B] [A]
