I dug into you like rock climbing ; too scared of going up, too scared of coming down, too scared of rockface. I should've split my sides or spilled my guts or hit you or something, but I was good. And your father's little pancakes so round and perfect and me sitting up too straight, laughing in wrong places, kissing you, kissing up, kissing too soon... (Chords. Let them ring : ) Dm G Dm G When the cock crows Dm G Dm G When the morning comes where will I go ? Dm G Dm G When the cock crows Dm G Dm G When the move is gone where will I go ?
