Guitar 2:
Strums F#m E

F#m                                         E
I like looking at the sky as the wind plays through
                            F#m               E
The skirts of the trees the silence knows how afraid we are of it
          A       Bm         F#m       E            A
Cherished memories bleed and bloom our secrets like seeds
    Bm                   F#m         E       A
get swept up and carried through our neighborhood

               D A
Safe as houses tuck me in
         Bm               F#m          E
Daylight waits for no man you’re still young
                             F#m
and breathing’s easy suck it in
       A          F#m   E
what a waste this facade
       A          E         F#m
What a pity we’ve come this far

strums F#m E

F#m                                            E
The rain will fall and baptize our strongholds our sheltered lives
       F#m                             E
Closed blinds drawn curtains and vinyl floors can’t hide
        A          Bm      F#m       E            A
Stained memories bleed and bloom our secrets like weeds
Bm               F#m         E       A
Creeps up to the roof of our neighbor's


A              D A
Safe as houses tuck me in
        Bm               F#m          E
Daylight waits for no man you’re still young
                             F#m
and breathing’s easy suck it in
       A          F#m   E
What a waste this facade
       A          E         D                F#m       E        D
What a pity we’ve come this far our luscious denial our devoured minds
                     F#m         E               A
Our thoughts remain impotent our pillows stay fertile

A              D A
Safe as houses tuck me in
         Bm               F#m          E
Daylight waits for no man you’re still young
                            F#m
and breathings easy suck it in

       A          F#m  E
What a waste this facade
       A          E         F#m
What a pity we’ve come this far

What a pity we’ve come this far
