A Scale, a Mirror and Those Indifferent Clocks  Bright Eyes

Here is [C]a scale, weigh it out and you will find easily
More than[Em] sufficient doubt that these colors you see
Were[Am] picked in advance by some careful hand
With an[F] absolute concept of[G] beauty
They are[C] smeared and these blurs come in random order
To[Em] color the eyes of your former lovers
Hers were[Am] green like July except when she cried
They were[F] red[G]
Now I[C] know a disease that these doctors can't treat
You[Em] contract it the day you accept all you see
Is a[Am] mirror and a mirror is all it can be
A r[F]eflection of something we're[G] missing
And[C] language just happened, it was never planned
And it's[Em] inadequate to describe where I am
In the[Am] room of my house where the light has never been
[F]Waiting for this day to [G]end
And these[F] clocks keep unwinding and[G] completely ignore
[Em]Everything that we [Am]hate or adore
Once the[F] page of a calendar is[G] turned it's no more
So[Em] tell me then, what was it[Am] for?
Oh[F] tell me,[G] what was it[C] for?
