[Verse 1]
         C                                            G
The rain, it started tappin, on the window near my bed
                        F                                    G
There was a loophole in my dreamin, so I got out of it
            Am                                                       F
And to my surprise my eyes were wide and already open
                 D7                                               G
To my nightstand and my dresser where those nightmares had just been
C                                                          G
So I dressed myself and left them, out into the grey streets
F                                                    G
But everything seemed different, completely new to me
Am                                                                F
The sky, the trees, houses, buildings, even my own body
D7                                                G
And each person I encountered, I couldn’t wait to meet
C                                               G
And I came upon a doctor, who appeared in quite poor health
                                   F                                        G
I said there’s nothing that I can do for you you can’t do for yourself
                 Am                                                 F
He said “Oh yes you can just hold my hand, I think that that would help”
D7                                                 G
So I sat with him a while, and I asked him how he felt

[Chorus 1]
                Csus4 C/B Am         Csus4 C/B Am
He said "I think I'm cured, in fact I'm sure.
        Csus4 C/B Am                  G
Thank you stranger, for your therapeutic smile."

C G F G Am F D7 G

[Verse 2]
              C                                          G
So that’s how I learned the lesson, that everyone’s alone
F                                                                   G
And your eyes must do some raining, if you’re ever gonna grow
                    Am                                                                             F
And when cryin don’t help, you can’t compose yourself it’s best to compose a poem
D7                                         G
An honest verse of longing, or a simple song of hope
                           C                                           G
That’s why I’m singin’ baby don’t worry, cause now I've got you back
                      F                                                G
And every time you feel like crying, I’m gonna try and make you laugh
Am                                                                  F
And if I can’t, if it just hurts too bad, then we’ll wait for it to pass
D7                                                             G
And I will keep you company, for those days so long and black
C                                                                  G
And we’ll keep working on the problem, that no one ever solved
                 F                                                  G
Of love’s uneven remainders, our lives are fractions of a whole
                      Am                                              F
But if the world could remain within a frame, like a painting on a wall
D7                                                             G
Then I think we’d see the beauty and, we’d stand staring in awe

[Chorus 2]
            Csus4 C/B Am             Csus4 C/B Am
At our still lives posed, like a bowl of oranges
         Csus4 C/B Am       G                     C
Like a sto - ry told, by fault lines in the soil
