F#m      D            A    Bm
The phone slips from a loose grip
F#m          D               A    Bm
Words were missed, then some apology
F#m               D            
I didn't want to tell you this
          A                   Bm              F#m
No, it's just some guy she's been hanging out with
         D                         A       Bm
I don't know, the past couple of weeks, I guess


F#m                D           
Thank you and hang up the phone
        A                         Bm
Let the funeral start, hear the casket close
      F#m               D            A     Bm
Let's pin split-black ribbon to your overcoat
F#m                      D                    A
The laughter pours from under doors in this house
               Bm                F#m
I don't understand that sound no more
             D            A    G
Seems artificial, like a T.V. set


Bm
Haligh, Haligh, a lie, Haligh
       A
This weight, it must be satisfied
      G
You offer only one reply
     A
You know not what you do
        Bm
As you tear and tear your hair from roots
    A
Of that same head you've twice removed
       G
Now a lock of hair you said would prove
     A
Our love would never die
               Bm
Well, ha ha ha

F#m       D
I remember everything
      A                 Bm            F#m
The words we spoke on freezing South Street
                      D
All those mornings watching you
 A              Bm
Get ready for school
F#m                    D
You combed your hair inside that mirror
           A
The one you painted blue
     Bm                 F#m
And glued with jewelry tears
                        D
Something about those bright colors
              A             Bm
Would always make you feel better


F#m                     D
But now we speak with ruined tongues
         A                   Bm          F#m
And the words we say aren't meant for anyone
                       D
It's just a mumbled sentence to
    A     Bm
A passing acquaintance

But there was once you
F#m                     D               A
You said you hate my suffering, and you understood
     Bm                F#m
And you'd take care of me
             D
You'd always be there
        A              G
Well, where are you now?


Bm
Haligh, Haligh, a lie, Haligh
     A
The plans were never finalized
     G
But left to hang like yarn and twine
   A
Dangling before my eyes
       Bm
As you tear and tear your hair from roots
      A
From that same head that you have twice removed
        G
Now, a lock of hair you said would prove
     A
Our love would never die
       Bm
And I sing and sing of awful things
       A
The pleasure that my sadness brings
        G
As my fingers press onto the strings
      A
Yet another clumsy chord


Bm
Haligh, Haligh, an awful lie
       A
This weight would now be satisfied
           G
I'm gonna give you only one reply
   A
I know not who I am
      Bm            G
But I talk in the mirror
          A            D
To the stranger that appears
                             G
Our conversations are circles
             G                 A
Always one sided, nothing is clear
           Bm          G
Except we keep coming back
          A             D
To this meaning that I lack
                              Bm
He says the choices were given
                   G
And now, you must live them
              A
Or just not live
                 Bm
But do you want that?
