Verse 1:
[D]I come to [A]you all d[G]ressed in [D]sound,
[D]with [A]bluebirds tripping [G]wires to the [D]ground,
[D]connected [A]to a [G]time [D]machine
[A]that will[G] not power [D]down.
Verse 2:
[D]Set the [A]crosshairs b[G]ack on [D]one,
[D]you said [A]we'd only [G]die here [D]in a sun.
[D]The way [A]your headstone [G]shines,
[D]I only w[A]ish that [G]it was [D]mine.

[D]So set [A]the crosshairs [G]back on [D]one,
[D]I nail [A]the loop that b[G]rings the second [D]run,
[D]past the [G]wished on [D]charms
[D]and through the l[A]ens back [G]to your [D]living arms.

Verse 4:
[D]And still [A]the crosshairs [G]rest on [D]one,
[D]and still [A]you rest there [G]in the morning [D]sun.
[D]Still I fumble [A]through pages of [G]constructions [D]on the ride.
Verse 5:
[D]I like [A]the blown out [G]sound we've [D]found,
[D]I like [A]the way it feels [G]here coming [D]down.
[D]The way [A]your headstone [G]shines,
[D]I only w[A]ish that [G]it was [D]mine.
