Song : Spoon

[Verse 1] : 
       G                              C
You're transcendent, you taught me so many things
                   G                           C
You taught me that help is all we to this dumb planet bring
                    G                                                  C
But one time sticks out for me, you were five, we were working with Bob in Maui
             G                                C
Driving a rental Sebring, the top down, every morning we'd drive on down to

[Verse 2] : 
Em                                 C
Baby Beach and the Pacific Ocean's not the sea, we'll surf the waves
          Em                                        C
And we'll walk the sand to bring your leg back that you'd broken
                               G                               C
And you needed to learn how to walk again and I could help you with all this
                   G                                   C
To help you is all there is, you showed me that that's all there is
                    G          C
That helping is transcendence

[Verse 3] : 
    G                        C
And after we'd go and eat at Anthony's
                         G                            C
Or we'd drive around and maybe stop and eat Fukushima Hot Dogs
                            G                                          C
Sittin' on the hood or we'd drive to the top of the volcano called Haleakala
                       G                               C
At night we'd stare up at the moon and we did all this listening to
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga by Spoon

[Verse 4] : 
       G                                C
Months later we were back in Toronto, a Tuesday night, an all ages show
    G                                      C
You were so young, we sat in the back row, Deerhunter opened the show
    G                            C
The headliner was introduced, we did our best, we'd have to go soon
We got a T-shirt and we caught five tunes
     C                                           G
Just enough to say the first show for us two was Spoon
