Capo on 3rd fret

Em G 

C                       G           Em   G 
don't you cherish me to sleep 
C                          G 
never keep your eyelids clipped 
Em                       D 
hold me for the pops and clicks 
            C               G 
I was only for the father's crib 

C   Em 

Em         G 
hair, old, long along 
C                             G          Em  G 
your neck onto your shoulder blades 
C                          G 
always keep that message taped 
Em                          D 
cross your breasts you won't erase 
             C              G 
I was only for your very space 


Em           G 
hip, under nothing 
C                        G       Em                  G 
propped up by your other one, face 'way from the sun 
C                       G 
just have to keep a dialogue 
Em                         D 
teach our bodies: haunt the cause 
              C             G 
I was only trying to spell a loss 


Em             G 
joy, it's all founded 
C                        G             Em    G 
pincher with the skin inside 
C                                   G 
you pinned me with your black sphere eyes 
Em                           D 
you know that all the rope's untied 
            C              G 
I was only for to die beside 


Em                         D 
so itʼs storming on the lake 
little waves our bodies break 
Em                   D 
there's a fire going out, 
but there's really nothing to the south 
Em                                 D 
swollen orange and light let through 
your one piece swimmer stuck to you 

Em         G 
sold, I'm Ever 
C                     G        Em    G 
open ears and open eyes 
C                             G 
wake up to your starboard bride 
Em                             C 
who goes in and then stays inside 
                  C                G 
oh the demons come, they can subside
