Blanket and Crib  Okkervil River

CAPO on 2nd
S[C]afe, safe, e[Am]njoy your time feeling so s[C]afe,
and tr[Am]easure that smile on your f[Em]ace,
okay? Because [Am]time will see that it's rep[D]laced in a w[G]hile.
So go on, s[C]mile. And han[Am]dshakes all around- that's your s[C]tyle, and [Am]no one
would call it de[Em]nial, for you're n[Am]ot even sure what's in st[D]ore, Though it's
Than you'll be a[F]ble to t[C]ake standing up st[G]raight. And it won't be o[Am]kay.
And you won' be som[F]ebody w[C]ho it's just happening [G]to, because it's a trap
that y[D]ou, and only you,
have la[C]id, laid with a t[Am]owel up over your f[C]ace,
in your arm[Am]chair, just lying in w[Em]ait,
waiting fo[Am]rces were gathering ou[D]tside your d[G]oor.
They sharpened their kn[C]ives, knives and s[Am]miled with no smiles in their ey[C]es,
a l[Am]ittle bit larger in s[Em]ize and a li[Am]ttle bit hungrier f[D]or that tiny p[G]rize.
And my mo[F]ther once s[C]aid "Son, remember t[G]his, no matter what someone [Am]did:
that they on[F]ce were just a k[C]id at breast and in b[G]ib, in blanket and [Am]crib.
So just r[F]each inside you[G]rself and find the p[C]art that still needs h[Am]elp,
find that p[F]art in so[C]meone else and you'll do g[G]ood", so
I thought that I wo[D]uld.
 (F - C - F - C - F - C - G - Am) X2

H[C]ey I l[Am]ove you, it goes without sa[C]ying.
I would g[Am]ive you the world on a t[Em]ray, though
they're al[Am]ready tracing a
[D]line across your th[G]roat.
Far too l[C]ate in the game you'll
f[Am]ind that you have been
bet[C]rayed: propped [Am]up and pushed into your p[Em]lace.
I could c[Am]laim that it all would
go gr[D]eat, but the reason I c[G]ame is to say that it wo[C]n't.[F]
You should know that it w[C]on't, [F]
You should know that it w[C]on't, [F]
You should know that it w[G]on't, and [D]so, Ph[G]illip, let [C]go.
