[Verse 1]
Em7          Cadd9      G
She took her lover on a road trip
Em7    Cadd9            G
Turned out to be a bad idea
Em7          Cadd9          G
She lost his eagle feather roach clip
Em7      Cadd9          G
A present from some sad Maria
Em7          Cadd9            G
Things never made it back to normal
Em7        Cadd9          G
He was the wrong kind of naive
Em7            Cadd9      G
She stopped for gas in Oklahoma
Em7      Cadd9            G
Left him alone on St. John's Eve

[Chorus]
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                  C
There's a pale fire rising on the plain

[Verse 2]
Em7          C          G
Remember when you were a fighter?
Em7      C            G
Remember when I was a queen?
Em7    C            G
Now I'm just another rider
Em7    C                G
Can't keep up with your machine
Em7  C            G
Every man I meet is perfect
Em7  C                G
Any better, they'd be wrong
Em7      C                G
That way it's never really worth it
Em7  C                G
And I can spend my days alone

[Chorus]
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                  C
There's a pale fire rising on the plain

[Bridge]
Em7  C            G
Every man I meet is perfect
Em7  C                G
Any better, they'd be wrong
Em7    C              G
Now it's never really worth it
Em7  C                G
And I can spend my days alone

[Chorus]
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                Em
There's a pale fire
Am                  C
There's a pale fire rising on the plain
