    Ab        Eb           Db                    Ab        Eb
And you said it was like fire around the brim
        Db                              Ab       Eb
Burning solid burning thin the burning rim
           Db                               Ab       Eb
Like stars burning holes right through the dark
         Db                        Ab       
Flicking fire like saltwater into my eyes
Eb            Db                          Ab      Eb                  
You were one inch from the edge of this bed
              Db            Ab      Eb      Db     
I dragged you back a sleepyhead                    
          Ab      Eb      Db

  Eb           Db                                     Ab      Eb
They couldn't think of something to say the day you burst
               Db                                       Ab      Eb
With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst
                Db                                  Ab      Eb
They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin
            Db                                Ab           Eb
Against the walls against your rules against your skin
         Db                                          Ab      Eb
My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors
        Db                                Ab      Eb      Db  
Of your eyes, begonia skies like a sleepyhead                 
          Ab      Eb      Db
