C E? F C B? Am, G F, F E? C
C E? F C
When the days go drifting backwards
C E? F G
and old friends' voices chew the air.
C E? F C B? Am
Well, the shells make my ears get seasick -
G F E? C
I know the ocean isn't really living there.
C E? F C
And the pendulum doesn't swing for passion,
C E? F G
and even horror can't make those stubborn hands freeze.
C E? F C B? Am
But sometimes just a soft light lit in a bedroom
G F E? C
can bring a tired traveller to his knees.
C E? F C E? F
She said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
So when[Em] you come to me, you can [F]breathe freely.
And I'll let you stand a[C] while on my sid[G2]e,[F]
[C]stand a while on[G2] my side,[F]
C G2 F C C?
stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F C
Well, praise be to the rolling graveyards,
C E? F G
and to the heroes with their necklaces of seaweed.
C E? F C B? Am
Cinderella's got to be home before midnight
G F E? C
so St. Christopher don't ever have to leave.

C E? F C
And here's a toast to all the furious seasons
C E? F G
that went and stole the blood out of baby's cheeks.
C E? F C B? Am
Though she was a one who always come so close to smiling,
G F E? C
she made crying seem like Christmas Eve.
C E? F C E? F
And she said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
So when[Em] you come to me, you can [F]breathe freely.
And I'll let you stand a[C] while on my sid[G2]e,[F]
[C]stand a while on[G2] my side,[F]
C G2 F C C?
stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F C
Well, a tattooed body wrote himself into a fable,
C E? F G
the story of the pine needle and the sheep.
C E? F C B? Am
They found him hibernating beneath the coffee table.
G F E? C
It turned out it was actually a human sleep.
C E? F C
And the trees forgave the fire that went on burning,
C E? F G
'til hope was all it left when the smoke cleared.
C E? F C B? Am
I'll forgive her body for deserting
G F E? C
as soon as I recall why mine's still here
C E? F C E? F
She said, "If you come to me, I'll make it easy.
C E? F C E? F
If you come to me, I'll make it easy for you.
So when[Em] you come to me, you can [F]breathe freely.
And I'll let you stand a[C] while on my sid[G2]e,[F]
[C]stand a while on[G2] my side,[F]
C G2 F C C?
stand a while on my side of the blues."
F F?
C E? F C
So the days launch forward leaving memories,
C E? F G
dragging swollen clouds across a robin's egg.
C E? F C B? Am
Like the beggar, I know I'm bound to get clean eventually
if I jus[G]t keep walking up and down the street.[F]
F E? C
Up and the down the street.
