Gmaj7 F#m Gmaj7 Em 
D A7 Em 


Verse: 

Gmaj7       F#m 
Down on the street 

  Gmaj7 
I got someone 

  Em                 D 
I really want you to meet 

        A7         Em 
In good time, like all things 


Gmaj7          F#m 
A prayer for a plumb 

Gmaj7 
Up all night 

  Em                    D 
Waiting for the mail to come 

        A7      Em 
In a light-less window 



Bridge: 
Bm                            Em      A 
I've been afraid to depend on love 



Chorus: 

         D         A       G 
And it's fare-thee-well my friend 

                    Em       D 
I'll see you at the promised end 

          A7       Em 
Where the wind is laughter 



         D       A     G 
And that home we never made 

                  Em     D 
Is waiting in the desert shade 

     A7       Em 
Happily ever after

Gmaj7    F#m 
Step into place 

Gmaj7 
Take my heart 

Em                   D 
Put it in a pillow case 

           A7       Em 
It's been still for hours 


Bridge: 

Bm                                 Em       
We can get high down on old King's road 

                           Bm 
And watch as the lights explode 
                              Em      A 
I can get lost if you want me to 


Chorus: 

         D         A       G 
And it's fare-thee-well my friend 

                    Em       D 
I'll see you at the promised end 

          A       Em 
Where the wind is laughter 


         D       A     G 
And that home we never made 

                  Em     D 
Is waiting in the desert shade 

     A       Em 
Happily ever after 


       D       A       G 
Like a bird on broken wing 

             Em        D 
I've been so afraid to sing 

        A         Em 
All my life I've wanted 


        D       A          G 
In this violent world that spins 

             Em         D 
I've been so afraid to live 

       A         Em 
By the lights of comets
