[Intro]
F#

[Verse 1]
F#
Watch me read you
The turning pages of an epic
Dissected hallucinogenic
Black coffee addict
F#
Life,, ended lies
Cold on that metal tray
Wasting away
I watch him sneer at me
F#
From beyond the grave
I hear him call for me

[Verse 2]
F#
Watch me read you
I get scared when it falls dark
The creeping shadows up my arm
The sneaking scarecrows
F#
Work their charm
But circumstantial
The way I blink when you get mad
Feel disarmed when you get sad
F#
But turn to run when we fall back
On old behaviors

[Verse 3]
F#
When the flavor turns from sweet to sour
That’s the hour that I seek
The heavy hearts
And tired retreats
F#
With words of hatred
Watch it seep through skin
Like sap through bark
I cower in the dark
F#
Til your return
When will I learn?

[Chorus]
Bm                    A
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G                                Em
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bm                        A
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
G                              Em
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bm
She’ll go (ohh)
A
Got out through the window (ohh)
G
It’s her (ohh)
Em
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bm                    A
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G                          Em
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

[Interlude]
F#
“The beautiful colors of the people’s faces…”
“…and the way they sat on top of those necks”

[Verse 4]
F#
Watch me read you
Like words ripped right off the page
Another ghost,, another day
Of melancholy,, UV rays
F#
And heavy eyelids
You just decided not to care
Compressed your fears
And cut your hair
F#
Lifted your shirt
To find there’s nothing there

[Verse 5]
    F#
Now read me:
Red wine,, copper stained
With curly hair and crazy eyes
F#
Impulsive mouth
She loves the rain
But not the dark
          A#m
You feel insane
      F#
The overpass is wet with blood
She turns to you to say
“Hey.. We can’t exist”

[Verse 6]
                              A#m
And in that moment,, it’s just bliss
                  F#
It’s like you’ve missed
A thousand years and as you kiss
It’s like you drift
F#
Between here and there
Between real and fake
                                      F#
As I hold my breath I can’t see your face
Watch me read me,,
Read you,, read them,, read us:
F#
Everyone’s a burning book on
Trust and lust and love and what we are and what we’re made of

[Chorus]
Bm                  A
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G                                Em
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bm                        D
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
G                                  Em
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bm
She’ll go (ohh)
D
Got out through the window (ohh)
G
It’s her (ohh)
Em
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bm                      D
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

[Bridge]
G
So don’t just see me
A
Oh surround me
Bm                            D
It’s getting harder,, babe,, to focus on just one thing
G
It’s enigmatic
A
Truly astounding
Bm
The way we stand together
                    G
But we are still drifting
G
You are so absent
A
But you consume me
      Bm                      D            G
And when the sun goes down the night it wraps around me
You try to stand still
  A
I can’t help moving
Bm                                  D                G
You’re like the moon that draws the tide that rushes through me

[Chorus]
Bm                  A
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G                                Em
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bm                        D
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
G                                  Em
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bm
She’ll go (ohh)
D
Got out through the window (ohh)
G
It’s her (ohh)
Em
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bm                      D
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
G
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

Bm Em

[Outro]
              Bm
I watch you read me
            D
The burning pages of my life
            G
Reduced to ash and overnight
I find my body
        Em
Is not mine
