A Conversation with God


Capo 2

Em                                                                        G
There’s a conversation I want to have about my mind
                                        D
But you haven’t got the time
                           Em
To have it right now. 

There’s a conversation I want to have about my death
My last breath
You’re breathing now

There’s a conversation I want to have about the language
Won’t you show me where the page is
Where you wrote it all down

There’s a conversation I want to have about the bones
But sticks and stones
Have broken your vow

              C                      
And the day of my atonement
      D
Somehow came and went
     Em
And the angel that you sent me
      C
Somehow was never sent
And the tone of your resentment
And my nonchalant response
Has left me holding a bog of bones
Full of all your scattered thoughts
Your scattered thgoughts


There’s a conversation I want to have about your dream
Can you hear me scream
As I burn in the fire

There’s a conversation I want to have about this house
How do I get out
Free myself of desire

There’s a conversation I want to have about my face
Can it be replaced
Cause it just keeps crying

There’s a conversation I want to have about your love
What is it made of
Cause it seems like it’s dying
