Sit back,

no song is written, 
G
nothing you thought of your

self.

It’s just a ghost 
C
that came unbidden to this 
G
house. 
Am
F
This infection grows 
Em
stronger every 
Am
year,
F
this seed inside the 
Em
water of your 
Am
tear.

There is n

Am
This seed blooming 
C
in the water of your 
G
tear 
Am
  
the 
Am
way an unborn 
C
baby’s 
G
ear unfolds in your 
Am
belly.
F
This infection grows 
Em
stronger every 
Am
year,
F
this direction of a

tear rolling

down your cheek,

there is no

Am
Bless this tiny alley we have 
C
fallen from tall buildings
  
we have 
Em
fallen through the air into a ga
F
rden sweetly s
G
melling of the
Am
softest sleeping flowers now they 
C
sit under the sidewalk
  
now they’re 
Em
waiting for the shining of some 
F
future sun to 
G
show us
Am
all that brings you beauty and 
C
all that gives you pleasure
  
I could 
Em
sigh into your hide and say “I 
F
hope I’m here for
G
ever
  
but black 
Am
sheep boy with your lovers with your 
C
list of favorite pillows
  
with your 
Em
list of missing children with the 
F
wall where you drew 
G
windows
  
over
Am
looking hidden gardens cut a
C
part by jagged mountains
  
climbing 
Em
up into the air and crumbling 
F
down into 
G
fountain
  
where the 
Am
water waits forever like a 
C
quiet distant treasure
  
when you 
Em
rise up to recover when you 
F
leave this tiny 
G
alley
  
when you 
Am
meet me in the garden with your 
C
horns all hung with cedar
  
all these 
Em
spirits brushing past me brushing 
F
past them in the 
G
ether
  
screams ’all 
Am
this is window dressing all you 
C
are is flimsy curtains
  
you will 
Em
flame up with a word from us and 
F
won’t know that you’re 
G
burning.’ ”
