While you were reading 

Your black Bible in the sun,
Am G I was drunk half out the window F of a moving city bus G C Wilder than the devil F like a tiger in the brush G C Louder than an atom bomb F That you could only hush G C Spinning like the earth and moon F So close but never touched G C F Of all the ways I wanted to be loved G C F/C C You were not enough C F/C While your head was bowed
And hands praying to God
Am G I was swinging from the chandeliers F Like some endangered animal G C F somewhere in New Orleans on the run Am G Like I just won the lottery F With god knows what inside of me G C F Hair a mess and shoelaces undone G C F Of all the ways I wanted you G C F/C C You were not the one C While they were teaching you how

Moses split the sea,
Am I was in an airplane bathroom doing
Speedballs off the sink
G C High as any angel F Moving at the speed of sound G C Someplace over Germany
Moving through the clouds
G C Winking back at stewardesses

Plying me with Ale,
G C Big hooped golden earrings F staying at the same hotel G C Of all the ways I wanted
You to hold me,
G C F/C C I could not be held C While you were waiting
For the doctor in the chair
Am I was stoned riding the
Cyclone at the
Onslow county fair
G C The stars above us sparkled F Like they didn’t pay the bill G C Smokes behind the haunted house F Chugging stolen beers G C F cotton candy kisses underneath The Ferris wheel G C F Of all the ways you wanted me to feel G C I could never heal C F/C While you were waiting in the
Depot for the train
Am G I was asleep on stolen cargo F In the back of someone’s plane G C Halfway back to Florida F from Cuba in the rain G Low enough to feel the
Water from the

Sea spray on the waves
G Underneath the radar
Hauling crates of
Pure cocaine
G C Hungover and laughing F High above the Everglades G C F Of all the ways I wanted to be tamed G C F/C C I was just insane C While you were waiting in the

Lobby for your man
Am I was working at the

Circus as a garbage man
G C Remembering that winter F You were in a long black coat G C Now I’m at home with the animals F Knife at my own throat G C We hear the bells of freedom but the
Genes all just say no
G C If I was the Titanic F You were pink clouds and blue smoke G C Rising over Hemingway F In an old man’s fishing boat G C Of all the things I wished
That you were now
G C You are not around
