All The Rowboats – Regina Spektor

Cm               Gm
All the rowboats in the paintings
Fm
They keep trying to row away
Cm                 Gm
And the captains ' worried faces
Fm
Stay contorted and staring at the waves
Cm                   Gm
They'll keep hanging in their gold frames
Fm
For forever, forever and a day
Cm               Gm
All the rowboats in the oil paintings
Fm
They keep trying to row away, row away
Cm                   Gm
Hear them whispering French and German
Fm
Dutch, Italian, and Latin
Cm                    Gm
When no one's looking I touch a sculpture
Fm
Marble, cold, and soft as satin
Cm                   Gm
But the most special are the most lonely
Fm
God, i pity the violins
Cm               Gm
In glass coffins they keep coughing
Fm
They've forgotten, forgotten how to sing
Cm Gm                 Fm
La La La La La
Fm
La La La La La La
Cm                        Gm
First there's lights out, then there's lock up
Fm
Masterpieces serving maximum sentences
Cm                   Gm
It's their own fault for being timeless
Fm
There's a price you pay and a consequence
Cm                 Gm
All the galleries, the museums
Fm
Here's your ticket, welcome to the tombs
Cm                  Gm
They're just public mausoleums
Fm
The living dead fill every room
