The Lake  Typhoon

It's basically a repeat of the four chords- G E Am Dm
Based on their live performance in their NPR Tiny Desk Concert
a n[G]orthern state in the summer time
my u[E]ncle?s lake on the fourth of July
out[Am]side the cabin my sister tried
to call [Dm]like the loon with her hands cupped tight
up agai[G]nst her mouth as the fireflies
became [E]visible in the failing summer light
a s[Am]parkler in my hand i went af[Dm]ter them
as they went out in the night
i w[G]andered down into a quiet place
where the g[E]rass grew tall where it met the lake
there was a [Am]different bug must have bit my leg
though i [Dm]never saw it
[G]back at home i cried in my room
my c[E]losest friend the one that i confided to:
i w[Am]anted her but she wanted you
i was s[Dm]ick in bed i could barely move
and then a[G]s my body turned against itself
i prayed for [E]death that i?d come back to be anyone else
[Am]be anyone else, [Dm]be anyone else
as s[G]ickness formed within my cells
you never l[D]oved me like the way you loved anyone else
you [Am]dig a hole dig it deep enough
the truth [Dm]buries itself and buries itself
[and] [i]  
i disowned [E]my
own family[Am]
all for l[Dm]ove
all for l[G]ove
and i was ash[E]amed
of my sister [Am]because
she belonged to [Dm]me
when i wasn?t good enou[G]gh
i?m s[E]orry, i'm s[Am]orry
you were the only [Dm]thing
i should have ever [G]loved
i?m s[E]orry, i'm s[Am]orry
you were the only [Dm]thing
i should have ever [G]loved
(End with ukulele solo)
