SONG: Cherry Tree
A D F#m A
Over your shoulder, please don't mind me if my eyes have
D A A
fallen onto your magazine for I've been watching and wondering why
D A F#m
your face is changing with every line you read. All those lines
C#m A C#m F#m C#m A
and circles, to me, a mystery. Eve pull down the apple and give
F#m Bm E ? ????????
taste to me. If she would be wonderful, but my pride is in the
way. I cannot read to save my life, I'm so ashamed to say.
I live in silence, afraid to speak of my life of
darkness because I cannot read. For all those lines and circles,
to me, a mystery. Eve pull down the apple and give taste to me.
If she could it would be wonderful. Then I wouldn't need someone
else's eyes to see what's in front of me. No one guiding me.
It makes me humble to be so green at what every kid can
do when he learns A to Z, but all those lines and circles just
frighten me and I fear that I'll be trampled if you don't reach
for me. Before I run I'll have to take a fall. And then pick
myself up, so slowly I'll devour every one of those books in the
Tower of Knowledge.
@SONG: Don't Talk
D F#m D F#m
Don't talk, I will listen. Don't talk, you keep your
G D Em
distance for I'd rather hear some truth tonight than entertain
Dadd9 G D Em
your lies, so take you poison silently. Let me be. Let me close
my eyes. Don't talk, I'll beleive it. Don't talk, listen to me
instead, I know that if you think of it, both long enough and hard
the drink you drown your troubles in is the trouble you're in now.
Em A Em A
Talk talk talk about it, if you talk as if you care but
Em A D G Em
when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air, tossing back
more than your share. Don't talk, I can guess it. Don't talk,
well now your restless and you need somewhere to put the blame for
how you feel inside. You'll look for a close and easy mark and
you'll see me as fair game.
Talk talk talk about it, talk as if you care but when
your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back more
than your share. You talk talk talk about it, you talk as if you
care. I'm marking every word and can tell this time for sure,
your talk is the finest I have heard. So don't talk, let me go on
dreaming. How your eyes they glow so feircely I can tell your
inspired by the name you chose for me. Now what was it? O, never
mind it. We will talk talk talk about this when your head is
clear. I'll discuss this in the morning, but until then you may
talk but I won't hear.
