Title: THE DANGLING CONVERSATION (Simon & Garfunkle)
[C]It's a still life [B]water [D]color
[C]Of a now late [B]after[D]noon
As the [C]sun shines [B]through the [Am]curtain lace
And [G]shadows wash the room[E] [F#]
[Em]And we sit and drink our coffee
[F]Cast in our indifference, like [E]shells upon the shore
You can [D]hear the ocean roar
In the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, and the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
The borders of our l[G]ives[Em] [F#]
[C]And you read your [B]Emily [D]Dickenson
[C]And I my [B]Robert [D]Frost
And we [C]note our [B]place with [Am]bookmarkers
That [G]measure what we've lost[E] [F#]
[Em]Like a poem porely written
We are [F]verses out of rhythm, [E]Couplets out of rhyme
In [D]syncopated time
And the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
Are the borders of our [G]lives[Em] [F#]
[C]Yes we speak of [B]things that [D]matter
With [C]words that [B]must be [D]said
Can[C] analy[B]sis be [Am]worthwhile
Is the [G]theatre really dead
[Em]And how the room is softly faded
And I [F]only kiss your shadow, I [E]cannot feel your hand
You're a [D]stranger now unto me
Lost in the [C]dangling [B]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
In the borders of our [G]lives[Em] [F#]
