Well grey clouds wraped round the town like elastic

Cars stood like toys made of Taiwanese plastic

I took myself down to the cafe to find all the boys lost in books and crackling vinyl

And carved out a poem above the urinal that read

Stars shone like buttons on an old man's jacket

We needed a nail but we tacked it 'til it fell of the wall

While pigeon's pecked trains sparks flew like planes
G chordG C chordC Em7 chordEm7
The rain showed the rainbows in the oil stains
Am chordAm Fmaj7 chordFmaj7 G chordG Gadd4 chordGadd4 G chordG
And we all had new iPhones but no one had no one to call


F chordF G chordG
And I stumbled down to the stomach of the town
C chordC Em7 chordEm7 Am chordAm G chordG
Where the widow takes memories to slowly drown

With a hand to the sky and a mist in her eye she said

I'll stick out my thumb and I trudge down the highway

Someday someone must be going my way home

Till then I'll make my bed from a disused car

With a mattress of leaves and a blanket of stars

And I'll stitch the words into my heart with a needle and thread
