    Intro:  Verse Progression x2

     

    Verse 1:

    In blizzard of ’77
    the cars were just lumps on the snow
    and then later
    tripping in 7-11
    the shelves were stretching out of control

     

    On a plane ride
    the more it shakes
    the more I have to let go
    Now the signals
    still getting all mixed up
    we’re always doing damage control

     

    Chorus:

                     Em                           D

    But in the middle of the night, I worry

                             G
    it’s blurry even without light

                     Em                           D

    But in the middle of the night, I worry

                             G               G/F#  Em  D
    it’s blurry even without light

     

     

    Verse 2:
    I know I have got a negative edge
    that’s why I sharpen all the others a lot
    It’s like flowers or ladybugs
    pretty weeds or red beetles with dots

    Chorus

     

    G   G/F#                     Em            D
             I miss you more than i knew
    G   G/F#                     Em            D
             I miss you more than i knew

    G   G/F#                     Em            D
             I miss you more than i knew

     

    G (hold)
