Country Sky Glow

	  		G               
You carry the beach in your way too short hair 
D 
That you shaved off last week cause you freaked and got scared 
               Em           D              G 
That when it's longer, you remind me of her 


G     
So you offered it up with what passed for authority, 
D 
A strict sort of challenge that you directed straight at me 
               Em           D              G 
You said "forget her, I don't care what you two were" 


           C 
So it's a trick on your ego 
D 
A two-step off tempo 
Em 
A solid gold bracelet 
     G 
Under lights in a window 
D                                  G 
In some shopping mall where I never go 


G 
You play coy and count tiles, drag your toes through the water 
D 
Raise your eyes, bite your lip and my mind's in the gutter 
            Em           D              G 
You move at me and take my face in your hands 


G 
I feel light bulbs explode and a fire crack thunder sends 
D 
The slow seismic shift, the sprawling cloud cover 
               Em           D              G 
But when we're finished I feel awful again 


            C 
So it's the same sorry story 
           D 
Just the cast changes nightly 
     Em 
It skips like a record 
        G 
But it glows like a movie 
           D                  G 
You're the country sky that I never see 


G     D        C                            G 
Shake in your voice makes me feel empty and ugly 
      D                             C      
All scattered anger like a windstorm howling violently 
                 C 
And I wanna fade out 
                      D 
And wake up somewhere else 
                    G 
Where no face is familiar 
                 C 
And I'm left by myself 
                    C 
To keep plugging away 
                 D 
On my own wasted time 
                 G                      C 
To eat badly and spend all my money and write 
                   C 
To not feel too guilty 
                 D 
To be tired at night 
                      G 
Since I'm not fixing things here 
                  C 
I'll leave them behind 
                    D                             G 
So you make your decision cause I'm through making mine 


G 
Now I walk where the street swallows light like it's water 
           D 
I see the slant of your smirk on every kid at the corner 
            Em               D              G 
But if you called, I'd never know what to say 
                        C     D 
So I just hope you never will 
                                  G 
Cause things are easier that way
