Flowers Where Your Face Should Be

	  		

verse 1 
D 
Bright blue hydrangeas 
G                 D 
Lost in the weeds 
                                         G 
Bus stops and barbed wire on the way to stare 
                                       Em 
At the heart of the earth from the Poas peak 
                                         G       Em 
Just like the ones that we grew back in Jersey 
                                     G 
Hung upside down, drying out for the wedding 


verse 2 
D                                               G 
There's a man with his head in his hands on the sidewalk 
D                                           G 
His wife's there behind him just off of the street 
D                                         G        D 
She scratches his back as he sobs on the asphalt 
                                 G 
And what strikes me most is the symmetry 
                             Em 
How they're framed just like you and me 
                                    G 
When the light from the hospital's eastern wing 
        Em                                               G 
Tangles up in your hair and the sadness it pooled in my heart 
                   G  
Starts emptying slowly

verse 3 G D The redwoods feel lonely and lunar and distant G D The sun comes in fragments through breaks in the trees G And I feel further from home than I've ever been G These thin lines of light across space tether you to me Em G They pull in my memories, back to our apartment on 2nd Street Em G Through the South-facing window the light catches lengths of your hair Like a path that you left me
tabchorus
D C#m Bm A G Well I saw you last night in my dream D C#m Bm A G But there were azaleas where your face should be
tab
Bridge D/F# Em Pieces of us in the morning sun G Sleeping bags under the 101 D/F# Em She takes off his glasses and she falls asleep again G They don't got much but goddamn they got love
tabchorus
D C#m Bm A G G Well I saw you last night in my dream D C#m Bm A G I'm gonna marry you underneath driftwood from Crescent City
tab
Outro D C#m Bm A G D A Bm A G D C#m Bm A G D A Bm A G (hold)
