Album: Kin.
Capo 5.

Intro: Emaj7 A B Emaj7 A F#m7

Emaj7                         C#m
If I could live my life again awake,
E                        Emaj7    C#m
Think of all the chances I could take,
    Amaj7                          C#m
I'd love with all abandon just the same,
       Am              E
'Cause that's the game.

   E                                  C#m
If I could cross a bridge from now to then,
E                          C#m
Open up my chest and let it in,
  A                Amaj7             C#m
I wouldn't fight so hard against the pain,
           Am   E
I'd let it rain,
E    B6   C#m  B    A
Long time girl gone by.

E                                     C#m
I couldn't take my loves the way they came,
E                                 C#m
My eyes projected each one with a stain,
    Amaj7                                 C#
And though they gave me more than I could spend,
C#m        A
I wouldn't bend.

E                           C#m
Hiding in my bridal veil of smoke
E                                    D    C#m
I sipped my lies until I thought I'd choke,
A                                        C#m
Once there was nothing left that I could steal,
         A    E
I had to yield,
E    B6   C#m  B    A
Long time girl gone by.

    G#m7            B               F#m7
The seconds whisper circles off the clock,
    G#m7                            B
The ships go sailing past and never dock,
    E                           C#m
The sea rears up, collapses and withdraws,
    E                              C#m
The constellations wheel and never pause,
   Amaj7                         B/A   C#m
The wind winds through the small bones in my ear,
I start to hear.

E                                          C#m
The trees look just as pretty when they're bare,
E                                  C#m
Black branches hieroglyphic in the air,
    A                                C#m
The leaves they left are rotted into lace,
     A        E
It's all grace,
E    B6   C#m  B    A  
Long time girl gone by,
E    F#m  C#m  B    A  Em
Long time girl gone by.
