Silver Jet  The Tragically Hip

the tragically hip - Silver Jet
"In Violet Light"
here's the basic idea for the verse:
fig. 1 (F#5, A)

there's a [F#5]still in the night[A]
a [F#5]tuneless moon[A]light
[F#5]just the i-need-you-and-here's-[A]whys of
[B]snoring Gords and Che[A]ryls
there's a [F#5]heron outside in[A]violate light
[F#5]there's an urge to g[A]o, a shadow,
a [B]heightened air of [A]peril
[F#5]your heart jumps too
[A]my heart jumps too
[B]i think to myself, 'i don't even know
my he[D]art.' and as you whisper
'me too'
[D]silver jet roars overhead[D5] [E5]
[B]rocks the nocturne all everglade
and grey shears [D]silver jet
so far off already[D5] [E5]
[B]ya fought the hot spurs off
all the way to cape spear
It's quiet again
When a car like Big Ben
It's radio dopplerin'
'...'and for all you Gregory Peck fans...
-Let Us Now Praise Famous Men-
To take some pressure off all the wonderous
To fight' and
Your heart jumps to
And my heart jumps too
As if the Wolves of Northhumberland themselves
Were rumoured to be en route
Silver jet, way overhead
Yer an archipelago, a satllite,
A green star
Silver jet, so far off already
With your I-need-you-and-here's-why
Flying to the next part
Your heart jumps to
And my heart jumps too
I'm thinking, to myself, 'packing,is a secret heart'
And as you whisper, 'me too'
Siler jet roars overhead
Silver jet flying to the next part
Silver jet so far off already
Silver jet, a satellite, a green star
Silver jet way overhead
Silver jet evergladed grey sheers
Silver jet, so far off already
Silver jet Clayqout sound to Cape Spear
