Am G F Em

Summer stretching on the grass, summer dresses pass

 

Am G F Em

In the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me

 

there are some harmonics in the background (work with these):

Am G F Em

Over me and over you, stuck together with GOD's glue

It's going to get stickier, too

Don't try too hard to think, don't think at all

C Am

I'm not the only one staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside

 

C Am

Not just deaf and dumb staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

I'm not the only one who's happy to go blind

 

Am G

There's an insect in your ear

 

F Em

If you scratch it won't disappear

Am G

Waves that leave me out of reach

 

F Em

Breaking on your back like a beach

 

Am G

Will we ever live in peace?

 

F G

Cause those that can't do often have to

 

F G

And those that can't do often have to

 

C Am

Preach to the ones staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside

 

C Am

Not just deaf and dumb staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Intransigence is all around, military still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won't say goodbye

Referee won't blow the whistle

GOD is good, but will He listen?

I'm nearly great, but there's something missing

 

F G

I left in the duty free though

 

F G

You never really belonged to me

 

C Am

You're not the only one staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

Afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside

 

C Am

I'm not sucking my thumb, I'm staring at the sun

 

D Dsus4 F

Not the only one who's happy to go blind
