TITLE: 12:30 (Young Girls Are Coming to the Canyon)
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 1 - actually in Db]

I used to live in New York City
Everything there was dark and dirty
Outside my window was a steeple
With a clock that always said twelve-thirty

/ Am D G - / Am Dm G - / / Am G# G - / 

Young girls are coming to the canyon
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn
And I can't keep myself from talking

/ C - G - / F Am G - / C - G - / F Fm C - /

At first so strange to feel so friendly
To say good morning and really mean it
To feel these changes happenin' in me
But not to notice till I feel it


Cloudy waters cast no reflection
Images of beauty lie there stagnant
Vibrations bounce in no direction
But lie there shattered into fragments

{Refrain to Fade}
