Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


  Bbm
These are almost the words
I intended to say,
this so nearly makes sense.

    F#6
Although the cut's too close for comfort 

 G#                          Bbm
language goes eventually astray.


  Bbm
There goes the neighbourhood
under the flood

     F#
and comprehension.s culled and clustered

 G#                              Bbm
round the sudden onrush of hot blood.


       Gm#   A# D#
And in imprecision

       Bbm 
we are all lost for words.


Bbm
All lost, alas, alack,
all points alarm,

 F#
sounding out the sweet sargasso

 G#                           Bbm
sea of language we are all becalmed.


 Bbm
So close, almost the words

     F#
but nearly isn't clear and drains our

G#                         Bbm
understanding of the overheard.


      Gm#   A#  D#
In incomprehension

       Bbm
we are all lost for words,	x2

        F#   F#4      Dm#
all at last lost,

       Bbm
we are all lost for words.



    Dm#           Bbm         Dm#           Bbm
At last you come round to believe what you heard

    Dm#          Bbm                Bbm
as circumstance found you lost for words.

     Dm#           Bbm      Dm#        Bbm
The secret's unspoken, the sense is absurd,

     Dm#           Bbm             Bbm
the safety net's broken, lost for words.



Jazz improvisation in Bbm.
