Intro: D Verse: D The greener grass grows where the wildfires fertilize, D Em G With ashes of sparrows, peppered moths, and butterflies. Ghosts of trees and termites D Bloom in the beanstalk. D And if you get lightheaded when standing too fast, is it from D Em G Shaking out the weight of phosphenes and past salt deposits, on warm little rivers, D That burst from our words Pre-Chorus: A G D And god knows crying ain't gonna change a thing. A G D Dmaj7 D7 She said "take care" but I take more than I bring. Chorus: G D She said, "It just feels inhumane to lose this much. Em G D 'Cause when you leave you know you take more than your love." G D Just one week of cicada days, we're losing touch. Em G D And I know it just feels inhumane to lose this much. Interlude: Em G Verse: D Our nerves were braided under ceiling stars, that were all D Glow in the dark, hanging over queen-sized Em G D Em G Purple waves of ancient chemicals. Just whisper. D Did you ever build with those endangered bones? Well the nc D7 Em G ground looks soft enough to bury this now. Ohhhh, D Dmaj7 D7 Please, oh no. Pre-Chorus: A G D And then my sponsor said "Do nothing. Nothing works." A G D Dmaj7 D7 And my doctor said "Don't do that if it hurts." Chorus: G D She said, "It just feels inhumane to lose this much. Em G D 'Cause when you leave you know you take more than your love." G D The seasons of cicada days we can’t make up Em G D Dmaj7 D7 And I know it just feels inhumane to lose this much. Bridge: Em G D Let all my red flags fade to white, yeah, I give up. Em G D Don't let me leave, I'll only take more than I gave. Okay, I'll pack my stuff. Em G D Here at the end of days, my god, what have I done? Em G D Christ, now it feels damn inhumane to get all I've dreamed of. Woahhhh! Outro: D Keep coming back, it works if you work it D So work it, you're worth it, it won't if you don't Em G D One day at a time, tomorrow's too late, amen.
