Renee Vancouver


VERSE

G                                     D

I traversed the continent from East to West

C

When I finally ran out of land


The dusk streets of Vancouver were dusty and dry

The red sun dripped out of the sky


I took my meal up on main street in a greek restaurant

From a waitress with powder blue eyes


CHORUS

Em

Hey there Renee

C

Well I wish I could stay

D

But my wings will wilt quickly on the land


We'll meet up one day

In a far away place

When my feathers make a bed on the ground


VERSE

She was house-sitting in a penthouse flat

We made love to a cityscape


An aspiring actress with time on her side

Not shy of 23


10 years my junior but travel years ahead

I've only been soaring 9 months


From a cabin in the Yukon to the

Learnt the sitar in India


All in all the kind of girl than no sane man would leave

I have no case for sanity


CHORUS


MIDDLE

C                            Am/B

When I think of the faces and places

C                           Am/B

I wouldn’t have met if I didn’t take off


My heart it grows heavy

My blood rises up

That I didn't fly years ago


Years ago

VERSE

My nice shoes are worn, my zip suit is torn

And my bad back wants to lie in your bed


But every stab and crack is a reminder I have

Of a weight I'm not built to bear


CHORUS
