[Verse]
                 C                 F           C
While you were reading the black bible in the sun
            Am                       F     
I was half drunk out the window of a moving city bus
 G                 C           F
Wilder than the devil, like a tiger in the brush
G                C            F     
Louder than an atom bomb that only you could hush
G                  C                    F
Spinning like the Earth and Moon, but never really touched
   G                C             F
Alone, the ways I wanted to be loved
G               C  F  C 
You were not enough....
                               F                C   
While your head was bowed and hands praying to God
       Am                                  F  
I was swinging from the chandeliers like some endangered animal
 G               C               F       
Somewher? in New Orleans on the run
         G           C            F     
Lik? I just won the lottery, with God-knows-what inside of me
G                C            G   
Hair a mess and shoelaces undone
    G             C          F    
Of all the ways I wanted you
 G                C  F  C 
You were not the one.....

[Verse]
                  C               F               C   
While they were teaching you how Moses split the sea
              Am          G          F          
I was in an airplane bathroom doing speedballs off the sink
G             C          F         
High as any angel moving at the speed of sound
G               C       F  
Someplace over Germany, moving through the clouds
G                  C               F  
Winking back at stewardesses, supplying me with ale
G                     C             F  
Big-hooped golden earrings staying at the same hotel
    G               C             F  
Of all the ways I wanted you to hold me
G               C  F  C 
I could not be held....
               C                F             C   
While you were waiting for the doctor in the chair
       Am                               F                    
I was stoned riding the cyclone at the Onslow County Fair
      G                C                F  
The stars above us sparkled like they didn't pay the bill
G                   C               F  
Smokes behind the haunted house, chugging stolen beers
G              C            F  
Cotton candy kisses underneath the ferris wheel
G                    C              F  
Of all the ways you wanted me to feel
G              C  
I could never heal
                C              F              C
While you were waiting in the depot for the train
        Am                           F   
I was asleep on stolen cargo in the back of someone's plane
G                  C             F  
Halfway back from Florida from Cuba in the rain
G                C             F  
Low enough to feel the water from the spraying waves
     G                C              F  
Underneath the radar hauling crates of pure *******
 G               C            F  
Hung over and laughing high above The Everglades
G                 C                F  
Of all the ways I wanted to be tamed
G             C
I was just insane

[Verse] 
                C               F             C
While you were waiting in the lobby for your man
      Am                          F  
I was working at the circus as a garbage man
G                  C              F  
Remembering that winter you were in a long black coat
         G               C       F  
I'm at home with the animals, knife at my own throat
     G                   C                F  
You hear the bells of freedom, but the chains all just say "nope"
   G             C               F  
If I was the Titanic, you were pink clouds and blue smoke
G               C                F  
Rising over Hemingway and in an old man's fishing boat
   G                 C             F  
Of all the things I wanted you to be
   G                  C                 F  
Of all the things I wish that you were now
G                C  F  C  F  G  C  F  C  Am  F   
You were not around...........................
G                C  F  C 
You were not around.....
