HALF MOON CAFE (Emily Saliers)
------------------------------
[Actually in Bb; capo 1.]
[It might be easier to play this with the high E tuned down to D;
then play A/C# as x42222 and E as 022102.]

D A/C# Bm7 E-F#m-G#m
[intro; play four times]

D A/C# Bm7 E-F#m-G#m
At the Half Moon Cafe, we drank to our lives
D A/C# Bm7 E-F#m-G#m
Like pseudo-believers in love
D A/C# Bm7
We've been through our holes in the walls and the dives
Bm7 G(9) G(9) Bm E
Where you drink to recall what you once had a vision of

C#dim C#dim C#dim C#dim
And we talk of our lives in a prison
Bm Bm/A Bm/G# E
Though we both know it's better to be
A A/G D Bm7
Safe within our indecision
A A E E-F#m-G#m
Than taking the risk to be free

And you were to be a great poet
And I'd find my fame in song
But we somehow saw failure more closely
Than fame all along

And now you manage a hamburger stand
And I haven't found steady work yet
And we meet here to talk and pretend
That we know no regret

Dsus9 E A
But how much is chance, how much would you decide?
A Dsus9 Dsus9 Gmaj9
How much is murder of our dreams
Gmaj9 Bm Bm E E
How much is suicide?

So you ask of my latest Top 40
And I ask of your latest great fiction
As I step outside I see that the moon is full
I have to laugh at the contradiction

Well, at least we can laugh at our dreams
Though it's really much more bitter than sweet
Sometimes through all of this fragmentation
I imagine what it feels to be complete

But how much is chance, how much would you decide?
How much is murder of our dreams
How much is suicide?

[Repeat intro chords with humming; end on x02200-x02220.]
