Mercury Chord Steve Lacy

Capo 0 with [Am] [G] [E] [F] [D]


VERSE
Gemini
I’m a myth and I’m a legend
Whom never wins
And might not ever play again
Keep falling in (Keep falling in, yeah)
Love so fast and back out again
Speeding
When I should ease in

PRE-CHORUS
Oh, I know myself, my sins
Dug my pit, then I fell in
Pulled the trigger, killed us both
Lesson learned but truth gets old

CHORUS
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of pleasure, little depression (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
How can I tell if? How can I measure? (Ooh, ah)
If I don’t know (Ooh, ah)

POST-CHORUS



VERSE
I lookеd up at the ceiling as I draft my “I’m so sorry” text
Don’t rеgret the choice I chose but do regret the mess I made
I see you hurt, I wish I could just hold you tight and close
Don’t need long, just wanna say, “I love you and miss you most”

PRE-CHORUS
Oh, I know myself, my skin
Rolling stones don’t crawl back in
Daddy’s faults fell down on me
Break that curse for sweet relief

CHORUS
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of pleasure, little depression (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
How can I tell if? How can I measure? (Ooh, ah)
If I don’t know (Ooh, ah)

POST-CHORUS


VERSE
Mercury running amuck in my mind
Can’t tell if I’m winning or falling behind

Venus in retrograde got me in bed
And thinkin’ ’bout all of the shit that I said

Gemini scope give me depth ’til I’m dead
But I can’t seem to get the fck out of my head
Well, fck it, I’ll just cop a Porsche instead
I do as I please and you see where it lead
Guess somethin’ bad ain’t ’bout to happen to me
You think I’m two-faced, I can name twenty-three

BRIDGE
My layers, all these sides
Could you stick by for the ride?
It’s a thrill, and I don’t even know how to feel

OUTRO
Excuse me if I lied
I forgot I said that
Can you forgive my tongue?
I’ll show you where my head at
I don’t think I’m the one
But I could be your girlfriend
‘Til retrograde is done
