   D            G           D           G
i found an old rock in the dry dirt outside
G           A      D
the door of my motel room.
          D                          G
it was a triangle with soft rounded edges
        D                             G
and a split down the middle of one corner.
        G                   A
it was darker than english moss.
   D                              G
green like the soft frills of a peacock's plume.
   G         A           D                      G
i waited for you, but i never told you where i was.
       E7                A        D                    Bm
it was you who taught me how to write these kinds of equations.
   G                      A
i waited on the steps for you,
       D                           G
and i hid in the bushes whenever a car pulled into the parking lot.
E7             A                Bm            G
you taught me how to listen to these distant stations.

distant stations.

(intro)

i saw the sky break.
i threw a rock at a crow who was playing in the mulch of some rose bushes by the motel office.
missed him by a good yard or two.
i sang old songs from nowhere.
los angeles.
albuquerque.
i said a small prayer for the poor and the naked and the hungry.
and i prayed real hard for you.
i waited for you, but i never told you where i was.
it was you who taught me how to write this kind of equation.
i waited on the steps for you,
and i hid in the bushes whenever a car pulled into the parking lot.
you taight me how to listen to these distant stations.
