Memorial

Devendra Banhart

Tom: A
A                           Bm  
I wish you had been at your memorial 
D                           A 
Seeing someone proposing on stage 
                          Bm 
I couldn't get through my song for you 
D                           A  
When it came to saying your name 
                                Bm 
I can still see the room at the hospital 
D                   A 
Pretty, painted tile 
                                  Bm 
I can still see your skin turning purple 
D            A        E 
Milly of the Nile 

F#m 
Can you hear me? 
E 
Did you mean it? 
F#m 
Did you plan it out? 
E 
Or was it an accident? 

A               Bm 
Time, time, up and down the blue screen 
D                  A 
It's dawn and I'm insane 
                           Bm 
Love's just a word and not what the word means 
D                        A 
But I'll say it just the same 
              Bm 
Talking to an entity 
D               A 
Made of endless night 
               Bm 
I dream in TV dialogue 
D                      A      E 
A world of shadow and light 

F#m 
I know it don't work that way 
E 
But maybe you'll come back some day 
F#m 
I know it don't work like that 
E 
But maybe you can take it back 

( A  Bm  D  A ) 
( A  Bm  D  A ) 
( E ) 

A                           Bm 
Now that there's no need to say a word 
D                A  
Can I still make amends? 
                      Bm 
But silence, the only kindness I heard 
D                     A 
Forgiveness, the only revenge 
                   Bm 
Meeting all of the people 
           D            A  
I've heard of from your past 
                            Bm           
Reading through all of your letters 
D                A      
Looking for your love  

( E ) 

F#m                        
You told me that love 
        E  
Is when someone asks you 
        F#m                 
'Please leave me alone' 
        E 
And you really do 
            F#m  
You looked into my eyes 
                E 
'Til I was your mother and son 
           F#m 
I tried to look away 
               E  
But saw you in everyone 

A                           Bm 
I wish you had been at your memorial 
D                           A 
Seeing someone proposing on stage
