New star song
(on Beautiful rat sunset mini album)

Tune down one half-tone (EbAbDbGbBbEb)

B5                    G#                  E                    B5                      G#                E
                             i hung pictures of you from every lamp post in town
        B5                                               G#                     E
as the humidity climbed into numbers i don't care to repeat
B5                                                       G#
the air was heavy and the sky was alive
E                          B5                                     F# 
and the pacific starlight train wasn't due in til eleven forty-five

F#                 B5
i thought about how cold you must be
F#                        B5
i thought about things i thought that i'd soon be forgetting
F#                     B5                              E                     B5
i thought of you up in Canada as the lightning storms lit up all downtown Redding

there were teenagers in mini-trucks coming around every corner
you can taste the adrenaline coming out through their skin
i came to the well-lit doorway of a sheet music store
saw my face in the glass sat down in the doorway and i settled in

i thought about how cold you must be
i thought about things i thought that i'd soon be forgetting
i thought of you up in Canada as the lightning storms lit up all downtown Redding
