Good morning 
Em
to the frozen 
C
street: I’m like a dresser full of 
G
leaves,
  
my 
C
eyes as 
D
dry as 
G
dust.
G
There is a 
Em
curtain in my 
C
mouth, it opens and a song comes 
G
out.
  
I’ve

sung the

G
ie-
Em
G
st words in
C
to your listening 
D
stones.
G
Moss 
Em
curled and 
G
songs have twirled their 
C
tunes around your 
D
bones.
Good morning Uncle with your pen, the furniture was born again
at night while you slept in.
The room it wrapped around your body, double pillows held your head.
I watched your shrinking skin, and all the lines that fill your face
in were falling into space.
D
There is a light that is so 
G
dim and a hand that pulls you 
Em
in
C
when you can’t 
G
swim 
D
anymore.
The freezing water fills your lungs, the weight of waves surrounds your skin,
and the outside comes all the way in.
Your heart is held inside this box and we’ve got to turn it off,
so please don’t be afraid.
The love you gave us will go on, we’ll hold your memory when you’re gone,
your self just can’t be saved. So shut your eyes and I’ll switch off your heart.
…heart. Watch the sick room fall apart.
  
Watch this ma

U-

nc-
G
le, if I could 
C
hold your open, 
G
never-broken 
D
heart,
  
I would have held it from the st

art.
