Bittersweet Genesis For Him And Her Guitar Chords Kishi Bashi

[Verse 1]
F                        C
In the beginning we were scrambled together
             A#                     F
Mixed in a celestial bowl and hand fluffed with a feather
        Dm       C               A#
And the tears of bliss were not amiss

    F              C
The second day, we created the earth
A#                           F
Tickled in irony as we made love upon it's girth
           Dm           C               A#
And to our delight, the sun gave us the stars

    F                          C
The creation of the moon was a miracle of light
  A#                                 F
Descended from the rift in the dark star of night
   Dm           C                             A#
My veins pulsed butter as it illuminated your thighs

       F                      C
On the fourth day, we felt compelled to whistle
    A#                          F
For how could we call the love birds to nestle
            Dm              C              A#
And keep us company in this world anew and fresh?

A#                                 F
Today I paint to life, a portrait of the sacred friend, the perfect wife
Dm C          A#
In synesthesia
Together we have filled the world with colored wine
But the story nears the present time
   Dm               C       A#
Of restlessness and wake up calls

[Verse 2]
F                         Gm
Years have flown fast but then who's counting
    A#                              F                         Dm
The wars have been won but there's few left standing between us
        C                    A#
And the shadows of Christmas past

F                        Gm
Critically acclaimed but sadly underrated
A#                                  F
Fortune definitely favored us, but no one celebrated
    Dm        C                  A#
Our wits were splitting at their ends...

We gazed upon the city lights
        F                                 Dm
We each laughed aloud one final time and agreed:
        C               A#
This is one thing we'll miss
And as we held our breath and forced our will
The minutes stopped, the air was still
    Dm             C             A#
And minds began to unlearn their faulted ways

We blasted through the hills!
They were the first to go, and the most painful so

Because we made them first when we learned to bleed
         Dm                           C
With our fingers on the seeds that we sowed in the dirt
And then cried when we came in the glorious masterwork of life ending
And beginning again
     Dm                     C
We ignored the pleas of the forest and the seas
As we scorched the earth with our tears€

We burned them in fear
Until there's nothing left
Nothing left
Nothing, nothing left
But us
