[Verse 1]
        Dsus2           D             Dsus2     D
I could never build the ether, or the grass overgrown
        G/B             Bm           G/B           Bm
I could never build the river with a mouth full of foam
        Em7                             A7sus4        A7sus4
I Could never built the winter with her cold tears of glitter
          Dsus2            D            Dsus2        D
I've been listening to the red oak, the acorn she cries
G/B              Bm               G/B       Bm
Listening to the white birch, the paper she dries
          Em7                           A7sus4
I've beem listening to the frog's joke, listening to the fire smoke
 
[Chorus]
        Dsus2          D              Dsus2      D
I could never tell you now what I had oftеn said before
        G/B          Bm             G/B             Bm
Becausе promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door
            Em7                        Em7
And I'm not saying I'm not jealous, or scared anymore A7sus4 I'm just saying [Verse 2] Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I could never make a rainbow, or any kind of flower G/B Bm G/B Bm Could never make a sparrow, or a meteor shower Em7 A7sus4 Could never build an earthworm, never make the earth turn Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I've been listening to the laughing of the fox down the trail G/B Bm G/B Bm Clasping to the listening of the moss to the snail Bm Bm Ooo Em7 A7sus4 The shimmer of the beech leaves, as the wind does a big sneeze [Chorus] Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I could never tell you now, but I had so often said before G/B Bm G/B Bm Because promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door Em7 Em7 And I'm not saying I'm not jealous, or scared anymore A7sus4 I'm just saying [Verse 3] Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I could never make the shadow between your cheek and your eye G/B Bm G/B Bm Could never make a freckle or the warm breath you sigh Em7 A7sus4 The canopy of lashes with the softness of ashes Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I've been listening to the memory, the way that it was G/B Bm G/B Bm Listening to the echo of whys and because Em7 A7sus4 Listening to the echo, telling me to let go [Chorus] Dsus2 D Dsus2 D I could never tell you now, but I had often said before G/B Bm G/B Bm Because promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door Em7 Em7 And I'm not saying I'm not jealous or scared anymore A7sus4 I'm just saying A7sus4 Sayin'
