(Intro)
[C] [Em] [Dm] [Am] [Am/B]
 
(Verse 1)
[C] Is it ro[Em]romantic how all [Dm]my elegies [Am]eulo[Am/B]eulogize me?
[C] I'm not cut [Em]out for all these [Dm]cynical clones
These [Am]hun[Am/B]hunters with cell phones
 
 
(Chorus)
[Em] Take me to the lakes, where all the[F]the poets went to die
I don't be[Am]belong and, my beloved, neither do [G/B]you
[Em] Those Windermere peaks look like[F]like a perfect place to cry
I'm setting [G]off, but not without my muse
 
 
(Verse 2)
[C] What should be [Em]over burrowed [Dm]under my skin
In [Am]heart-stopping waves [Am/B]of hurt
[C] I've come too [Em]far to watch some [Dm]namedropping sleaze
Tell me [Am]what are my [Am/B]words worth
 
 
(Chorus)
[Em] Take me to the lakes, where all the[F]the poets went to die
I don't bel[Am]belong and, my beloved, neither do [G/B]you
[Em] Those Windermere peaks look like [F]a perfect place to cry
I'm setting o[G]off, but not without my muse
 
 
(Bridge)
[C]I want auroras and [Em]sad prose
[Dm]I want to watch wis[Am]wisteria grow right [C]over my bare feet
[Em] Because I haven't moved in[Dm]in years
[Am]And I want you right here
[C] A red rose grew up out of [Em]ice frozen ground
With [Dm]no one around to [Am]tweet it
[C] While I bathe in [Em]cliffside pools
With my ca[Dm]calamitous love and insur[Am]insurmountable grief
 
 
(Chorus)
[Em] Take me to the lakes, where all the po[F]poets went to die
I don't bel[Am]belong and, my beloved, neither do [G/B]you
[Em]Those Windermere peaks look like a [F]perfect place to cry
I'm setting [G]off, but not without my muse
No, not without yo[C]you
