River on Fire

Intro Dm

F              Em                         Dm
What would you say if you knew what I was thinking?
F         G                      Dm
Maybe you do but you know not to dig too deep
F         C                        Am
What if I knew what you needed for sure?
     Em                         F
I've seen in your eyes you need more
     A
Much more.

    Dm                   C
And I could be happy and you could be miserable
Bb                   Bb         A
I'll grab a metaphor out of the air
    Dm  C    Dm       C     Dm
The Cuyahoga river on fire

F            Em                  Dm
What can you say, the impossible happens.
F            G                        Dm        Am   Dm
What can you settle for, what can you live without?
F              C                           Am
I remember the night I first darkened your door
      Em
And I swore that I loved you
   F         A
My heart was pure

Dm                     C
You could be happy and I could be miserable
Bb                   Bb         A
I'll grab a metaphor out of the air
    Dm  C    Dm       C    Dm
The Cuyahoga river on fire

Interlude
F  Em  Dm
F  G   Dm  Am  Dm
F       C                      Am
My open window, a dream in the dark
   Em
My fingers, your face
  F        A
A spark, a trace

    Dm                       C
And I could be happy and you could be miserable
Bb                   Bb         A
I'll grab a metaphor out of the air
    Dm  C    Dm       C    Dm
The Cuyahoga river on fire
Dm                     C                     Bb
I know a lot about the history of Cleveland, Ohio
               Bb            A
Disasters that have happened there
         Dm  C    Dm       C    Dm
Like the Cuyahoga river on fire
