Superman 05:16
Superman 08/21/13 - FtLd If I think you’re superman Would you forgive me all my dreams For thinking that you are much more Than I could ever be If I think you’re superman Would you forgive me all my sins For thinking that you could be much more Than I have ever been For these dreams they’re the only thing That holds me through the night I need to know you’re out there I need to know that you’re alive Superman If Clark Kent is just another Person in the street Would you try to keep me from finding him In everyone I see And if you can only see him Through the eyes of Lois Lane I’d gladly trade mine for them If only I could finally see Superman you’re the only thing That keeps me through the night I need to know you’re out there I need to know that you’re alive Superman And if I’m Jimmy Olsen And I never get it right Then you must always save me Or both of us will die For you may be much stronger But I am the one who is alive And if you let me down My dreams will turn to kryptonite Superman you’re the only one That takes me through the night I need to know you’re out there I need to know that you’re alive Superman verse: 39.46.57 - 36.47.57 38.49.56 - 25.36.47 (all 2x) chorus: Ef12 - Af12 Af14 - 217.318.419 end: 29.46.57 (pick) 39.46.57 (single strum) copyright 2013 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

The Shooting Tree (for Folke Bernadotte) 07/20/14 - FtLd If I shoot you and you shoot me Then who’s left to shoot in the shooting tree Uh huh... oh no Cause everyone sings a different song And no one cares what’s right or wrong In the shooting tree... uh ho And two wrongs never make a right But they’ll get you through another night In the shooting tree... uh huh And if I kill you ‘fore you kill me Then my lies become history In the shooting tree... oh no Cause everyone sings a different song And no one wants to get along In the shooting tree... uh ho Though I only need one nest My god tells me take all the rest In the shooting tree... uh huh And I know that you’ll do the same So I’ll kill you in my god’s name In the shooting tree... oh no Yet no two god’s are quite the same But everyone kills in their god’s name In the shooting tree... uh ho So maybe I’ll just settle down Somewhere peaceful upon the ground Out of the shooting tree... uh huh But if I do will you shoot me For leaving the insanity Of the shooting tree... oh no Cause killing only causes pain And pain drives everyone insane In the shooting tree... uh ho In the shooting tree... uh huh In the shooting tree... oh no In the shooting tree verse: Am - Ef1 - Am chorus: Ef1 - D - Dm - Am Ef1 - D - 15.26.35 - E - E+13.23 end: Ef1 - D - 15.26.35 - 27.35.47 copyright 2014 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Everything Must Die 10/29/11 - FtLd There comes a time When everyone moves away And your neighbors are no longer The ones you knew yesterday It’s strange how time can change All the faces you once knew And when you look into the mirror Is that stranger really you Yet somewhere deep inside You hide a memory Of when you were a child Running wild and free But now you sit and try to wonder All the reasons and the whys Everything must come and go And everything must die Everything must die A kiss can last forever If you don’t open up your eyes An embrace can hold you up above All the things that always try To pull you under and destroy you With their mortal fears and lies As my love is waiting for you In the tears I cry And you can live forever If only in a dream A dream I once wished upon While in a dream it seems That reality has forsaken me And left me here to try To hold on while you come and go Cause everything must die Everything must die And if I had a vision A dream that I could make true It would be to be with you forever In a place where we could do All of the things that make you me And all the things that make me you Then we’d be one forever And we would never die We would never die We would never die We would never die We would never die chords: D - Bm - A7+23 - G+10.23 copyright 2011 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.
