Elderly Woman Behind a Counter in a Small Town

Song Author Eddie Vedder Lyrics by: Eddie Vedder Performer: Pearl Jam Submitted by: davepeers
[D]I   [Cadd9]seem to [G/B]recognize your [Cadd9]face       [G/B]    
[D]Haunt[Cadd9]ing fam      [G/B]iliar, yet I cant [Cadd9]seem to [G/B]place [G]it  
[D]Cannot f[Cadd9]ind the      [G/B] candle of thought to [Cadd9]light your [G/B]name    
[D]Life[Cadd9]times are [G/B]catchin' up with [Cadd9]me [G/B]    

[C]All these [A]changes taking [C]place
I [A]wish i’d seen the [C]place
But [A]no-one’s ever [Em]taken me

[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way    

[D]I   [Cadd9]swear I [G/B]recognise your [Cadd9]breath [G/B]    
[D]Memor[Cadd9]ies, like [G/B]fingerprints are [Cadd9]slowly       [G/B]raising
[D]Me, you [Cadd9]wouldn't re[G/B]call, for I'm [Cadd9]not my       [G/B]former
[D]It's hard wh[Cadd9]en you're [G/B]stuck upon the [Cadd9]shelf [G/B]    

[C]I changed by [A]not changing at [C]all  
Small [A]town predicts my [C]fate
Per[A]haps that's what no one [Em]wants to see

[D]I just [Cadd9]want to [G/B]scream, "hel[Cadd9]lo!" [G/B]    
[D]My   [Cadd9]god, it's [G/B]been so long, never [Cadd9]dreamed you'd [G/B]return [G]    
[D]But now [Cadd9]here you [G/B]are and [Cadd9]here I       [G/B]am    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade     [Cadd9]away [G/B]    

[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]away       [G/B]    [G]    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    

[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    
[D]Hearts and [Cadd9]thoughts they [G/B]fade, [Cadd9]fade a      [G/B]way     [G]    

I seem to recognize your face
Haunting familiar, yet I cant seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catchin' up with me

All these changes taking place
I wish i’d seen the place
But no-one’s ever taken me

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

I swear I recognise your breath
Memories, like fingerprints are slowly raising
Me, you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former
It's hard when you're stuck upon the shelf

I changed by not changing at all
Small town predicts my fate
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see

I just want to scream, "hello!"
My god, it's been so long, never dreamed you'd return
But now here you are and here I am
Hearts and thoughts they fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
