A chord diagramG+G                A chord diagramC majorC
The jacaranda are wet with color,
        A chord diagramG+G                            A chord diagramD MajorD
and the heat is a great paint brush, lending color to our lives,
     A chord diagramG+G                                A chord diagramC majorC
to the air, and to out faces; but I'm going to Alaska
              A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramD MajorD
where there's snow to suck the sound out from the air.

A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramC majorC
Up, yes, in the branches,
A chord diagramG+G                       A chord diagramD MajorD
the purple blossoms, go pale at the edges;
         A chord diagramG+G                              A chord diagramC majorC
there is moaning in the shifting of the sap, and I see in them traces
A chord diagramG+G                           A chord diagramD MajorD
of last year, but then they hadn't grown so strong,
A chord diagramG+G                                    A chord diagramC majorC
and their limbs were more like wires. Now they are cables.
A chord diagramG+G                           A chord diagramD MajorD                    A chord diagramG+G
thick and alive with alien electricity, and I am going to Alaska,
     A chord diagramC majorC                         A chord diagramG+G
where you can go blind just by looking at the ground,
A chord diagramD MajorD
where fat is eaten by itself
A chord diagramC majorC                         A chord diagramG+G
just to keep your body warm.

A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramC majorC
Because from where we are now, it seems, really,
    A chord diagramG+G                           A chord diagramD MajorD
that everything is growing in a thousand different ways;
A chord diagramG+G                                        A chord diagramC majorC
that the soil is soaked through with old blood and with relatives
A chord diagramG+G                                           A chord diagramD MajorD
who were buried here, or close to here, and they are giving rise
A chord diagramG+G                                A chord diagramC majorC
to what is happening. Or can you tell me otherwise?
     A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramD MajorD
I am going to Alaska, where the animals can kill you,
        A chord diagramG+G                     A chord diagramC majorC
but they do so in silence, as though if no-one hears them,
        A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramD MajorD
then it really won't matter. I am going to Alaska.
A chord diagramC majorC                                     A chord diagramG+G
They tell me that it's perfect for my purposes.
