Artist : Jason Webley
Song : Pyramid

[Intro] : Em G Em

Em               D                Bm         D
Tell me Margaret, what is coming down this river? 
G              D              C             Em
You’ve been watching so much longer now than I. 
Am          Em                   D
Do you know Margaret, just what will this day deliver, 
                 G            C            Em
Does it work out tooth for tooth and eye for eye? 

Em            D               Am    Em                 Am
They started stacking up the stones the very day that you were born. 
Em                 D    Am                Em
No matter how you grew, they would tower above you. 
           D                     Am              Em     Am      C
You could change your name, move all the way to sunny California. 
            Am                   C                  Am
But when you start your life anew, does that long shadow follow you? 

           Em                       G         D               G             C       D    C
Who was it Margaret, that chose to resurrect you here for me, in scattered lines of poetry, 
      Em
This distant, wistful girl I see reflected in your eyes? 
  C          Em             D                                            C
Forgive me Margaret, all the ways I am mistaken, all the liberties I’ve taken, 
C                                                           Em
I’ve projected you in costumes I don’t think were quite your size. 

              D                 Am               Em
Now here I’m climbing up these stones a hundred years from where you were born, 
               D   Am                 Em
Looking for a song that could take me to you. 
         D                       Am                Em    D  C
I have traced these roads, drove past your home in Burbank, California, 
    Am              C                    D
But you were not inside you’ve found a better place to hide. 

             Am         C              Em
And tell me Margaret, when I’m gone, what will I want, 
       C          D                                                          C
To be left at the bottom of a garbage bin, or dusted off and pulled up onto stage? 
          Em                             G          D       C
Will it please me when someone lights a candle and says my name? 
            C               D            Em                D
Will I say leave me in my pyramid, blow out the flame and close the lid, 
        C                                 Am
This story’s done, why don’t we turn the page?
