Odette – Watch Me Read You

Odette – Watch Me Read You Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Odette
Song : Watch Me Read You

[Intro] : F

[Verse 1] : 
F
Watch me read you

The turning pages of an epic

Dissected hallucinogenic

Black coffee addict
F
Life, ended lies

Cold on that metal tray

Wasting away

I watch him sneer at me
F
From beyond the grave

I hear him call for me

[Verse 2] : 
F
Watch me read you

I get scared when it falls dark

The creeping shadows up my arm

The sneaking scarecrows
F
Work their charm

But circumstantial

The way I blink when you get mad

Feel disarmed when you get sad
F
But turn to run when we fall back

On old behaviors

[Verse 3] : 
F
When the flavor turns from sweet to sour

That’s the hour that I seek

The heavy hearts

And tired retreats
F
With words of hatred

Watch it seep through skin

Like sap through bark

I cower in the dark
F
Til your return

When will I learn?

[Chorus] : 
Bbm                    Ab
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb                                Ebm
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bbm                         Ab
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
Gb                               Ebm
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bbm
She’ll go (ohh)
Ab
Got out through the window (ohh)
Gb
It’s her (ohh)
Ebm
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bbm                    Ab
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb                           Ebm
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

[Interlude] : 
F
“The beautiful colors of the people’s faces…”

“…and the way they sat on top of those necks”

[Verse 4] : 
F
Watch me read you

Like words ripped right off the page

Another ghost, another day

Of melancholy, UV rays
F
And heavy eyelids

You just decided not to care

Compressed your fears

And cut your hair
F
Lifted your shirt

To find there’s nothing there

[Verse 5] : 
     F
Now read me

Red wine, copper stained

With curly hair and crazy eyes
F
Impulsive mouth

She loves the rain

But not the dark
          Am
You feel insane
      F
The overpass is wet with blood

She turns to you to say

“Hey. We can’t exist”

[Verse 6] : 
                               Am
And in that moment, it’s just bliss
                   F
It’s like you’ve missed

A thousand years and as you kiss

It’s like you drift
F
Between here and there

Between real and fake
                                       F
As I hold my breath I can’t see your face

Watch me read me,

Read you, read them, read us
F
Everyone’s a burning book on

Trust and lust and love and what we are and what we’re made of

[Chorus] : 
Bbm                   Ab
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb                                Ebm
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bbm                         Db
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
Gb                                  Ebm
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bbm
She’ll go (ohh)
Db
Got out through the window (ohh)
Gb
It’s her (ohh)
Ebm
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bbm                      Db
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

[Bridge] : 
Gb
So don’t just see me
Ab
Oh surround me
Bbm                             Db
It’s getting harder, babe, to focus on just one thing
Gb
It’s enigmatic
Ab
Truly astounding
Bbm
The way we stand together
                     Gb
But we are still drifting
Gb
You are so absent
Ab
But you consume me
      Bbm                       Db             Gb
And when the sun goes down the night it wraps around me

You try to stand still
   Ab
I can’t help moving
Bbm                                  Db                Gb
You’re like the moon that draws the tide that rushes through me

[Chorus] : 
Bbm                   Ab
We never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb                                Ebm
Breathing the smoke from others mouths and lying in the dirt
Bbm                         Db
So make a promise but then later we can just forget
Gb                                  Ebm
It’s hard to let your breath our when your used to holding it
Bbm
She’ll go (ohh)
Db
Got out through the window (ohh)
Gb
It’s her (ohh)
Ebm
Maybe it’s a shadow (ohh)

Bbm                      Db
You never wanted to be more than just a silhouette
Gb
But when you cry the light reflects and I see you again

Bbm Ebm

[Outro] : 
               Bbm
I watch you read me
            Db
The burning pages of my life
            Gb
Reduced to ash and overnight

I find my body
        Ebm
Is not mine
