Bm                                                  A       E
One wound up punch of intuition, lays flat my whole take on us
You're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer, the tidal rabbit who came of age 
E
Before her time

  We could have been so good-natured, if I'd relented when you insisted, 
Bm             G                           D             A
But we've been backed against all nature's walls far too long
Bm           G                   D                    A
   You felt abandoned by me, I recall the sunshine as you were melting 
Bm               G                  D                A                  G   G   G   G
  And though the comedy softens the fall, they still hear us with their ears to the wall

I sold all my evil motives, no icicles stuck in my hide
I'm through with riddles, I know we're little, just help me feel warm inside

                    G
Before we take this ride and let it slide, 
                      D
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide
     G                                      D
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love
  G                                      D                              A
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind, any other kind

         Bm        Bm        Bm       A     E

We could have been so good-natured if you'd relented when I insisted, 
We take a week off, let the garden grow by itself 
And let the gluttons fill themselves with all the worst of the gory nineties
Bm                G                  D                   A
   And though the comedy softens the fall, we stall fall short

Before we take this ride and let it slide 
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind

A    G     G G G  Bm
