A Murder Of One


by Counting Crows (Adam Duritz/Matt Malley/David Bryson)
Blue morning
Blue morning
Wrapped in strands of fist and bone
Curiosity, Kitten, doesn't have to mean you're on your own
You can look outside your window
He doesn't have to know
We can talk awhile, baby
We can take it nice and slow

D - - - /    / C - - - /    // (4x)

  C:	All your life is such a shame ... All your love is just a dream

G - - - /    / C - - - /    // (4x)

Are you happy where you're sleeping?
Does he keep you safe and warm?
Does he tell you when you're sorry?
Does he tell you when you're wrong?
I've been watching you for hours
It's been years since we were born
We were perfect when we started
I've been wondering where we've gone

  C:	All your life is such a shame ... All your love is just a dream

  B:	I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow
Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows
One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for girls and four for boys
Five for silver
Six for gold and
Seven for a secret never to be told

D - - - /    / C - - - /    / x4  / D - - - /    / Am - - - /    / G/B - - - /    / C - - - /    //

There's a bird that nests inside you
Sleeping underneath your skin
When you open up your wings to speak
I wish you'd let me in

  C:	All your life is such a shame ... All your love is just a dream

  T:	Open up your eyes, you can see the flames
Of your wasted life, you should be ashamed

You don't want to waste your life, baby
You don't want to waste your life, darling (4x)

I walk along the hillsides, in the summer 'neath the sunshine
I am feathered by the moonlight falling down off me (4x)

Change ...
