The Other End(Of The Telescope) Lyrics

Artist: Aimee Mann
Album: Everything's Different Now


Capo 3: Eb maps as C

C2 | C2

*** Verse 1:
C2 G D G
Shall we agree that just this once
Em D
I'm gonna change my life
C2 G D G
until it's just as tiny or
Em F
important as you like
C2 G D C2
and in time, we won't even recall that we spoke
G D C2
Words that turned out to be as big as smoke
Em D G
like smoke, disappears in the air
C2 Em D G
there's always something smouldering somewhere

*** Chorus:
D C2 G
I know it don't make a difference to you
D C2 G
but oh, it sure made a difference to me
Em D C2 G
You'll see me off in the distance, I hope
Am
at the other end
C D C2
at the other end of the telescope

*** Verse 2:
There was a time not long ago C2 G D G
I dreamt that the world was flat Em D
and all the colours bled away C2 G D G
and that was that Em Em (note!)
And in time, I could only believe in one thing C2 G D C2
the sky was just phosphourus stars hung on strings G D C2
and you swore that they'd always be mine Em D G
when you can pull them down anytime Em D G

*** Chorus:
I know it don't make a difference to you D C2 G
but oh, it sure made a difference to me D C2 G
You'll see me off in the distance, I hope Em D C2
at the other end Am
at the other end of the telescope C D C2

*** Bridge:
D C2 G
There, there baby now, don't say a word
D C2 G
lie down baby, your vision is blurred
Em D C2
Your head is so sore from all of that thinking
Em
I don't want to hurt you now
C Am C Am
but I think you're shrinking (I think you're skrinking)

*** Verse 3:
You're half-naked ambition and C2 G D G
you're half out of your wits Em D
and though your wristwatch always works C2 G D G
your necktie never fits Em F
Now its so hard to pick the receiver up C2 G D
and when I call, I never noticed you could be so small C2 G D
the answer was under your nose Em D G
but the question never arose Em D G

*** Coda:
I know it don't make a difference to you D C2 G
but oh, it sure made a difference to me D C2 G
When you find me here at the end of my rope Em D C2
when the head and heart of it finally elope Em D C2
You can see us off in the distance, I hope Em D C2
at the other end Am
at the other end of the telescope C D C2

G
