Joanna Newsom - Sawdust And Diamonds
verse 1 C From the top of the flight Em C Of the wide white stairs Em C Through the rest of my life Em C Do you wait for me there? Em C There's a bell in my ears Em C There's the wide white roar Em C Drop a bell down the stairs Em C Hear it fall forever mor Em C Hear it fall forevermoreVerse G And the articulation in our elbows and knees Em Makes us buckle and we couple in endless increase As the audience admires G And the little white dove Made with love, made with love Em Made with glue and a glove and some pliers G Swings a low sickle arc from its perch in the dark Em Settle down, settle down my desireG Em Drop a bell off of the dock G Em Blot it out in the sea G Em Drowning mute as a rock G Em sounding mutiny G There's a light in the wings, hits this system of strings, Em from the side while they swing; See the wires, the wires, the wires.Verse D And then a slow lip of fire C G Moves across the prairie with precision C While somewhere with your pliers and glue Em You make your first incision D A And in a moment of almost unbearable vision C Em G Doubled over with the hunger of lions D 'Hold me close', cooed the dove C Em Who was stuffed now with sawdust and diamondsD And the moment I slept C G I was swept up in a terrible tremor D C Though no longer bereft, how I shook Em And i couldn't remember D And then the furthermost shake Am Drove a murdering stake in C Em G And cleft me right down through my center D And I shouldn't say so C Em But I know that it was then or never G Em Push me back into a tree G Em Bind my buttons with salt G Em Fill my long ears with bees G Braying 'please, please, please, Em Oh you ought not! No you ought not!' G And then the system of strings tugs on the tip of my wings Em Cut from cardboard and old magazines Makes me warble and rise like a sparrow. G And in the place where I stood There is a circle of wood Em A quarter to which you chop and you stack in your barrow G And it is terribly good To carry water and chop wood Em Streaked with soot, heavy booted and wild-eyed G As I crash through the rafters And the ropes and the pulleys trail after Em And the holiest, holiest belfry burns sky highBridge G Em In the trough of the waves G Em Which are pawing like dogs G Em Pitch we, pale-faced and grave G Em As I write in my log. G Em Then I hear a noise from the hull G Em Seven days out to sea G Em And it is the damnable bell G And it tolls, I believe, that it tolls Em It tolls for me! And it tolls for me! G And though my wrists and my waist Seem so easy to break Em Still my dear I would've walked you to the edge of the water G And they will recognize all the lines of your face Em In the face of the daughter, of the daughter, of my daughter G And darling we will be fine But what was yours and mine Em Appears to be a sandcastle that the gibbering wave takes G But if it's all just the same Then say my name, say my name, Em in the morning so that i know when the wave breaksEm D G A C G I wanted to say 'why the long face?' A C G Sparrow perch and play songs of long face A C G Burro buck and bray songs of long face Am C Sings 'i will swallow your sadness and eat your cold clay G Just to lift your long face A C And though it may be madness, I will take to the grave G Your precious long face A C & though our bones they may break & our souls separate G Why the long face? A C And though our bodies recoil from the grip of the soil G Why the long face?Coda D C Em Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh desire D C Em Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh desire D C Em Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh desire Em C From the top of the flight Em C Of the wide white stairs Em C Through the rest of my life Em C Do you wait for me there?D I wasn't born of a whistle C G Or milked from a thistle at twilight D No, i was all horns and thorns C Em Sprung out fully formed, knock-kneed and upright D A So enough of this terror we deserve to know light C Em G And grow evermore lighter and lighter D You would have seen me through C Em But I could not undo that desire
