Plus Ones  Okkervil River

I just added the complete lyrics to this one, and corrected one or two wrong chords
Artist: Okkervil River
Song: Plus Ones
Capo at 7th Fret
Intro: D
[D]No one wants to h[G]ear about your [Em]97th t[G]ear,
so dry your e[Em]yes or let it g[G]o
uncried, my[A] dear. I am all o[Em]ut of love to m[G]outh into you[A]r ear, and not ab[Em]ove
G A Em Em* G* A*
letting a love song disappear before it's written.
And no[D] one wants a tu[G]ne about the [Em]100th luft[G]balloon that was seen
[Em]shooting from the wi[G]ndow of your r[A]oom, to be a s[Em]pot against the sk[G]y's
colossal[A] gloom and land, def[Em]lated, in some ne[G]ighbor state that's[A] strewn with
99 [Em]others. [Em] [G] [A]
[Em] 8 Chinese brot[A]hers; well, there's a r[D]eason why the l[A]ast is smiling wi[Em]de
and sitting h[G]igher than the [A]others,
swinging his ar[Em]ms.[G] [A]
[D]You would probabl[G]y die before yo[Em]u shot[G] up 9 miles high
Your eyes[Em] dilated as lig[G]ht played upon the [A]sight
O[Em]f TVC16 as it s[G]ings you good[A]night
R[Em]elaxed as hell[G] and locked up in c[A]ell 45
[Em]I hope you're feeling bett[Em]er[G] [A]
[Em]51st way to leave[A] your lover
A[D]dmittedly, it d[A]oesn't seem to be[Em] as gentle or as c[G]lean as all the[A] others
E[Em]ven a scars all in the after hours of some Greenpoint bar[G] [A]
[D]I told you, I can't listen, [G]baby, 'bout the[Em] 4th time you were a[G] lady
[Em]and how your fo[G]rthrightness betray[A]ed a secret shyness
[Em]Stripped away by days of [G]being hailed as "your [A]highness"
And what's new [Em]pussycat, as y[G]ou were once a lion[A]ness
[Em]They cut your claws o[Em]ut[G] [A]
[D]Kitten, not e[G]veryone's keen [Em]on lighting candle 1[G]7,
the party's d[Em]one, the cake's[G] all gone, the plat[A]es are clean
The chauffeur's [Em]near and from t[G]he cheerless mezzan[A]ine
And in just one [Em]year, this stra[G]ight world could pa[A]y to see
[Em]what they have been missin[Em]g[G] [A]
[Em]You were caught kissing 8 chinese bro[A]thers
Well, there's a r[D]eason why the l[A]ast is smiling wi[Em]de and sitting hig[G]her than the ot[A]hers
[Em]Staking with char[G]m[A]
[Em]And he says, "Lets get lost, let them send out al[A]arms
[Em]He says, "Let's get crossed out and come to [A]harm"
[Em]"Lets make the world's stupidest stand and tru[A]ly mean it
[Em]Lets hit the limit of loss over lover[A]'s arms
[Em]No, lets exceed it"
