Chorus:
E    B    C#m    A

(Verse: E   C#m   A   F#7)
Thinking outrageously I write in cursive 
I hide in my bed with the lights on the floor 
Wearing three layers of coats and leg warmers 
I see my own breath on the face of the door 

(Verse: E   C#m   A   F#7)
Oh I am not quite sleeping 
Oh I am fast in bed 
There on the wall in the bedroom creeping 
I see a wasp with her wings outstretched 

(Verse: E   C#m   A   F#7)
North of Savanna we swim in the palisades 
I come out wearing my brother's red hat 
There on his shoulder my best friend is bit seven times 
He runs washing his face in his hands 

(Verse: E   C#m   A   F#7)
Oh how I meant to tease him 
Oh how I meant no harm 
Touching his back with my hand I kiss him 
I see the wasp on the length of my arm 

(Chorus: E   B   C#m   A)
Oh great sights upon this state, Hallelujah
Wonders  bright and river's   wake , Hallelujah
Trail of Tears and  Horseshoe Lake , Hallelujah
Trusting things be--yond   mistake , Hallelujah

(We were in love, we were in love)
(Palisades palisades palisades)
(I can wait, I can wait)

I can't explain the state that I'm in 
The state of my heart, he was my best friend 
Into the car, from the back seat 
Oh admiration in falling asleep 

All of my powers, day after day 
I can tell you, we swaggered and swayed 
Deep in the tower, the prairies below 
I can tell you, the telling gets old 

Terrible sting and terrible storm 
I can tell you the day we were born 
My friend is gone, he ran away 
I can tell you, I love him each day 

Though we have sparred, wrestled and raged 
I can tell you I love him each day 
Terrible sting and terrible storm 
I can tell you...
