This is kind of compressed. Listen to the song for timing.

     Am    
I re-fuse 
   Em
to talk about time
           G                  
I shake myself loose 
    F
and lay me out to dry. 
           Am   
I won't be governed
   Em
by hands not of my own
                   G
I've lain there so silently 
    F
and felt them way too long.
        G
I would like you to get the feeling
  F
I felt when I wrote this. 
    G                   F
You could win, it won't hap-pen.

(tacit)       F                   
Anyway, truth is 
        G
this is how I feel.
 G                    Am
I've shown some short resentment
       G               F
to you and your bright ideas.
                      F
With the sky about to break, 
        G
I could change its mind.
 G                Am                G
I'm convinced the sun wants nothing more to show 
     F
than shine on things I've done for you, 

things you and bright ideas made me do.


Am   G   F


       Am
By the way 
    Em
you can have your knife back.
               G
The wounds are healing nicely, thank you.
F
That is unfair to say, 
                   Am
but the sky looks charcoal, 
      Em
and I've got none but hope.
             G
And in anticipation of the sun, 
     F
I've pulled off all my clothes.
        G
I would like you to get the feeling
  F
I felt when you kissed me. 
    G                    
The sun had just come up
               F
and the breeze picked up in the city. 
   G
It won't rain, 
                 F
and if I keep on feeling this way 
    G                   D
You will win, it can't hap-pen.

        G
I would like you to get the feeling 
  F
I felt when you left me
     G
like all of the world just chewed me up 
        F
without knowing where it spit me.
           G
Really, It won't rain, 
                 F
and if I keep on feeling this way 
    G                   D
You will win, it can't hap-pen.

on these things I've done for you,
 
these things I've done for you,
                                  C
that you and your bright ideas made me do.
