G               D 
Everybody wants perspective from a hill 
Am                    G             G/F# 
but everybody's wants can't make it past the window sill 
G 
I can see you in yourt room at night 
D 
the pictures on your walls 
Am 
little forest scenes and high school halloweens 
                G 
but they don't come to you 
            G/F# 
they don't come to you at all 

G 
All houses dream in blueprints 
D 
our house dreams so hard 
Am 
Outside you can see my shoeprints 
           G            G/F# 
I've been dreaming in your yard 

E                                 Am 
One of these days these days will end 
E                           Am 
Thru the kitchen window the light will bend 
E                                  Am 
You'll be carving a pumpkin with a knife 
E 
when someone at the table says 
G                  G/F# 
'that's not what I call a life!' 

G                                     D 
The elephants are so ashamed of their size 
Am                               G      G/F# 
hosing down I tell them 'you got pretty eyes' 
G                             D 
Out in the backyard I used to make like I was a cowboy 
Am                                    G        G/F# 
I'd set my dog before a hoop and say 'now boy, now boy!' 

E 
When the governer's heart fails 
Am 
the state bird falls from its branch 
E                        Am 
Icicles on hell's higher hills 
E                          Am 
Meanwhile back home at the ranch 
E 
I still get up early in the morning 
      G            G/F# 
and I never knew a better place 

G                                         D 
I believe the stars are the headlights of angels 
                               Am 
driving from heaven to save us to save us 
Won't you look at the sky? 
G                           G/F# 
They're driving from heaven into our eyes 
G                                     D 
and though final words are so hard to devise 
Am                                       G           G/F# 
I promise that I'll always remember your pretty eyes your pretty eyes
