Aspect Of An Old Maid

	  		
C 
Chastised and abraded; 
F 
So windswept and faded. 
C                             G 
She wore the aspect of an old maid. 

              Am 
Well, you're still taking lovers; 
         F 
You take some further than others. 
                C 
I still can not believe how I saw behind your blinded, blotted eyes, 
                G 
But I could not get beneath your covers. 

              Am 
I've seen the old cabaret 
         F 
With the fetish's tailor. 
               C 
I've seen the morbid cachet 
      G 
Of significant failure. 

      Am                                         F 
And I know this means so much more to me than it does to you, 
    Am                                   F                     G 
But meet me back in room 417 we've still got work to do. 

     C                                                           F 
Hey, baby, I know you had that baby before you were really ready to, 
             C 
Because I've seen you hold it so timid and unsteady,  
         G 
and I've seen the fear when it looks at you. 

         Am 
And I've seen so much of your body, 
                F 
And, though you were just under 30, 
          C                                        G 
I swore I saw on your face the aspect of an old maid. 

       Am 
And so call on your tyrant director, 
        F 
Let his cruel will be dispersed, 
            C 
Tell all my deeds to the inspector; 
     G 
I am ready for the worst. 

         Am                                              F                          G 
All that hubcap stealing, marijuana dealing, high sex crimes and electric cars. 

Instrumental  C F C G Am F Am F G 

     C 
Hey painting in the crosshairs, lets you rearrange the deck chairs. 
           F 
Though you swoon and you sway, you still don't belong here. 
         C 
And it's not as if I ever really told you that I cared, 
                  G 
But you know that even if I did, 
You still would not be spared. 

           Am 
And you're still taking long drives; 
              F 
Even the end designing needs of why. 
           C 
Oh it's so hard to know just how to dress 
        G 
For the last days of our lives. 

              Am 
I've seen the whole three act play. 
              F 
I've seen the poster and the trailer. 
        C 
I never thought i'd have to pay 
                       G 
This much attention to one girl just to nail her. 

           Am 
Down as to what it was, 
             F                      C 
She wore the aspect of an old maid.
