(Manifest) The Weakerthans
The intro is the A chord over and over with an E mixed in
i [A]want to call requests through heating-v[E]ents,
and [D]hear them answered with a whispered, "[A]no."
to [A]crack the code of muscle, slacken, [E]tense.
let [D]every second step in boots on [A]snow
[A]complete your name with accents i can't [E]place,
that [D]stumble where the syllables [A]combine.
take [A]depositions from a stranger's [E]face.
paint [D]every insignificance a [A]sign.
so [D]tell me nothing matters, less or [E]more.
[A]say, "whatever we think actions [D]are,
we'll [D]never know what anything was [E]for."
if "[A]near is just as far away as [D]far,"
and i'm [A]permitted one act i can [E]save,
i [D]choose to sit here next to you and [A]wave.
The outro is just these four chords over again.
[A] [E] [D] [A]
