Lyrics and Chords Jason Webley – Pyramid
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?
