Lake Song

	  		Intro: D 

Em 
Down by the lake 
We were overturning pebbles 
                                  D 
And upending all the animals alight 
Em 
And I took a drag 
From your cigarette and pinched it 
'Tween my finger and my thumb 
          D 
Till it died 
        Em                     D 
And the sun burned low on the radio 
Em 
Say that you will 
Say you will or will you won't 
Or you whatever you prevaricate 
            D 
Your whole life, don't you? 
Em 
This much I can say: 
I would've waited till the oceans 
Fell Away and all the sunken cities 
                 D 
Would reveal themselves to you 
         Em 
But you won't, will you? 
              D 
Because you never do 
        Em 
And the sun burned through 
               D 
Sweet as honeydew 
    Bm 
And I 
A                         G 
Seventeen and terminally fey 
 F#m                              Em 
I wrote it down and threw it all away 
                               G 
Never gave a thought to what I'd paid 
    Bm 
And you 
A                             G 
Sibylline, reclining in your pew 
F#m                             Em 
You tattered me, you tethered me to you 
                                G 
The things you would and wouldn't do 
                                 D 
To tell the truth I never had a clue 

Em   D 

Em 
Now we arise 
To curse those young suburban villains 
                                          D 
And their ill-begotten children from the lawn 
Em 
Come to me now 
And on this station wagon window 
Set the ghost of your two footprints 
                 D 
That they might haunt me when you're gone 
             Em 
And when the light broke dawn 
          D 
You were forever gone 
        Em 
But I remember you, you were full 
                              D 
You were full and sweet as honeydew 
   Bm 
And I 
A                        G 
Seventeen and terminally fey 
F#m                            Em 
I wrote it down and threw it all away 
                           G 
And never gave a thought to what I paid 
     Bm        A                         G 
And you all sibylline, reclining in your pew 
F#m                                  Em 
You tattered me, you tethered me to you 
                                  G 
The things you would and wouldn't do 
                               D 
You noticed how I never had a clue 
Never had a clue 
You were full and sweet as honeydew 
You were full and sweet as honeydew
