Promise Is A Pendulum Chord Big Thief

Capo 1 with

INTRO

VERSE
I could never build the ether, or the grass overgrown
I could never build the river with a mouth full of foam
I Could never built the winter with her cold tears of glitter
I’ve been listening to the red oak, the acorn she cries
Listening to the white birch, the paper she dries
I’ve beem listening to the frog’s joke
Listening to the fire smoke

CHORUS
I could never tell you now what I had oftеn said before
Becausе promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door
And I’m not saying I’m not jealous, or scared anymore
I’m just saying

VERSE
I could never make a rainbow, or any kind of flower
Could never make a sparrow, or a meteor shower
Could never build an earthworm, never make the earth turn
I’ve been listening to the laughing of the fox down the trail
Clasping to the listening of the moss to the snail
Ooo
The shimmer of the beech leaves
As the wind does a big sneeze

CHORUS
I could never tell you now what I had oftеn said before
Becausе promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door
And I’m not saying I’m not jealous, or scared anymore
I’m just saying

VERSE
I could never make the shadow between your cheek and your eye
Could never make a freckle or the warm breath you sigh
The canopy of lashes with the softness of ashes
I’ve been listening to the memory, the way that it was
Listening to the echo of whys and because
Listening to the echo, telling me to let go

CHORUS
I could never tell you now what I had oftеn said before
Becausе promise is a pendulum, just swinging at the door
And I’m not saying I’m not jealous, or scared anymore
I’m just saying
