"Too Many Knots to Untangle" as written by and Parker....
Pre>intro d bm (4 times)
D g a
I don't understand telepathy, but I am thinking of you
D g a
I am going to get my feelings across the gulf that divides me and you

D d/c# d/c d/b (bass run)
'cause when the doors get locked and the windows are shuttered
D d/c# d/c d/b
The oaths get broken and the curses are muttered
D d/c# d/c d/b
And every emotion's confused and cluttered
A bm g
There's nothing to stop us from burning out, just like a candle,
With too many knots to untangle

I know there's a better world somewhere you've just got to take a look
Yeah but unfortunately it's in the pages of a kid's storybook
Does your daddy look down on us and say this is wrong
Will your mother figure me out from the words in this song
Did you prefer the guy who was hung like king kong
Well I just wanna feel your curves again when they're not at right angles
With too many knots to untangle

G bm
The rusted remains of an automobile
G bm
Sits out in the backyard with only one wheel
Bm a
Ignored and deserted you know how it feels

Yeah it's a random universe, there is no plan involved
We just bounce around like rubber balls and sometimes nothing gets solved
Do you know these people the chances are slim
Even their shadows are wearing thin and you're not her and I'm not him
But I don't wanna tie you up any more and leave you to dangle,
With too many knots to untangle (3 times) then intro again

Too many knots to untangle (repeat over intro chords with backing vocals and oohs) /pre>
