The Dangling Conversation

Performer: Simon & Garfunkel
Capo 3

[C]    [G]    [D]    [G]    [D]    [C]    [C]    [G]    [Em]    
It's a [C]still life [G]water [D]color
Of a [C]now late [G]after[D]noon
As the [C]sun shines [G]through the [Am]curtain lace
And [G]shadows wash the [Em]room   
And we [G]sit and drink our coffee
[F]Cast in our indifference, like [E]shells upon the shore
You can [D]hear the ocean roar
In the [C]dangling [G]conver[D]sation, and the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
The borders of our [G]lives[Em]    

And you [C]read your [G]Emily [D]Dickenson
And [C]I my [G]Robert [D]Frost
And we [C]note our [G]place with [Am]bookmarkers
That [G]measure what we've [Em]lost   
Like a [G]poem poorly written
We are [F]verses out of rhythm, [E]Couplets out of rhyme
In [D]syncopated time
And the [C]dangling [G]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
Are the borders of our [G]lives [Em]    

Yes we [C]speak of [G]things that [D]matter
With [C]words that [G]must be [D]said
Can [C]analys[G]is be [Am]worthwhile
Is the [G]theater really [Em]dead?
And [G]how the room is softly faded
And I [F]only kiss your shadow, I [E]cannot feel your hand

You're a [D]stranger now unto me

Lost in the [C]dangling [G]conver[D]sation, And the [G]super[D]ficial [C]sighs
In the borders of our [G]lives [Em]    

Capo 3


It's a still life water color
Of a now late afternoon
As the sun shines through the curtain lace
And shadows wash the room
And we sit and drink our coffee
Cast in our indifference, like shells upon the shore
You can hear the ocean roar
In the dangling conversation, and the superficial sighs
The borders of our lives

And you read your Emily Dickenson
And I my Robert Frost
And we note our place with bookmarkers
That measure what we've lost
Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm, Couplets out of rhyme
In syncopated time
And the dangling conversation, And the superficial sighs
Are the borders of our lives

Yes we speak of things that matter
With words that must be said
Can analysis be worthwhile
Is the theater really dead?
And how the room is softly faded
And I only kiss your shadow, I cannot feel your hand

You're a stranger now unto me

Lost in the dangling conversation, And the superficial sighs
In the borders of our lives
