Prosthetic Love

Typhoon

Tom: G
G                       Em  
My folks had left the TV on 
G                                                     
I was falling in love years  
C                           G      
before I ever met someone 
                          Em                           
Like a prayer you don't expect an answer,  
            C               
though you ask for one 

G                           Em       
Was sure my love would come along 
G                            C                           
Like some rare bird and only I  
                            
would recognize the song 
Em                                G               
Like the actors I've seen on the television 
         C                 
with the stage lights on 

G                   Em            
What I found was a gamble 
G                          C     
You threw yourself in with me,  
                                     
made a cross, and you lit a candle 
    Em            G                      Em               
But we were only strangers cornered in a dark room 
G                          C            G       
Projecting slides of cozy lives on the wall 
                         Em       
In the light I thought I saw you 
         C                   
Was it nothing at all? 

Em                 G        
Of everyone I ever knew 
                           
I'm giving it all to you 
C                          Em        
I'm asking everything in return 
                           G      
and I have nothing left to lose 
                              
I'll get it back through you 
     C                  
I'll take your offer 

G                              Em          
It's time I wake and I'm still alive 
                        C       
Outlived my expiration date 
                      
Imagine my surprise 
Em                                   G      
It's a backwards take on The Book of Job 
                                  C        
His life was a wager and mine's a joke 
                        
Give him what he wants 
                       
He will never know 
                                    Em       
He's tired of trying to let himself go 

                    G        
Of everyone I ever knew 
                         
I've gotten used to you 
C                                 Em     
I've grown attached to you being here 
                    G      
Of everyone I ever knew 
                               
I've learned to count on you 
C                  
As my own fingers 
Em                  G      
Of everyone I ever knew 
                          
I've gotten close to you 
C                                Em       
I've grown attached to you being here 
                   G      
Of everyone I ever knew 
                             
I've learned to count on you 
C                         
As my own fingers
