Haunted Episodes lyrics

Pre>capo at 3 /c /b etc mean passing bass notes

G c /c /b
I wonder what you are thinkin
Am7
Under the rooftops there
D
Pullin tangles from your hair
G c /c /b
I wonder if the water youre drinkin
Am7
Comes from a purer stream
D
The one where sunlight gleams
Bm am7
Things round here dont get any clearer
Bm am7 d
Stuff that once seemed in reach is not any nearer

I wonder if that house is still standin or did they knock it flat
Well thats progress thats that I wonder who was more demanding
We were just young I guess neither would settle for less
Still its not a whole life story is it
Its just a page I turned and there you were in it

I wonder how you are farin not sliding down a slope
Takin the knocks I hope
I wonder where your eyes are starin
Not into some emptiness into someones I guess
But that still wont make things any clearer
People seem to drift apart instead of getting nearer

I wonder what you are doin under the evening sky
Watchin your life go by
I wonder if that place is in ruins and all the doors are closed
Thats just the way it goes
I wonder what there is worth keepin from haunted episodes
That briefly woke us from sleepin /pre>
