Bm Bm A A G G
I find the map and draw a straight line
Bm BmAG
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
Bm BmAG
The distance from me to where you'd be
Bm BmAG
It's only finger-lengths that I see
Bm BmAG
I touch the place where I'd find your face
Bm BmAG
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

Bm BmAG
I hang my coat up in the first bar
Bm BmAG
There is no peace that I've felt so far
Bm BmAG
The laughter penetrates my silence
Bm BmAG
As drunken men find flaws in science

Bm BmAG
Their words mostly noises
Bm BmAG
Ghosts with just voices
Bm BmAG
Your words in my memory
Bm BmAG
Are like music to me

Bm BmD D
I'm miles from where you are,
AG
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm BmD D
I pray that something picks me up
ACadd9
And sets me down in your warm arms

Bm BmAG
After I have travelled so far
Bm BmAG
We'd set the fire to the third bar
Bm BmAG
We'd share each other like an island
Bm BmAG
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
Bm BmAG
And dreaming pink wildfire
Bm BmAG
The last place we left off
Bm BmAG
Your soft skin is weeping
Bm BmAG
A A joy you can't keep it

Bm BmD D
I'm miles from where you are,
AG
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm BmD D
And I pray that something picks me up
ACadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms

Bm BmD D
I'm miles from where you are,
AG
I lay down on the cold ground
Bm BmD D
I pray that something picks me up
ACadd9
and sets me down in your warm arms
