Architect

Trey Anastasio

 

          G               D

All these words roll into one

Em                             C

Together we revolve around the sun

    G                                D

And if you get the chance, watch the young children dance

     C                               D

In a little while, you will see them smile

 

          G             D

Truth may dazzle gradually

       Em                            C

It all comes out in the wash eventually

G                            D

Try to catch a gleam, if you know what I mean

        C                          D

You may even see the cogs in the machine

 

CHORUS:

C    G     D        

Reconvene, reconnect

C       G            D

Raise a glass to the architect

C        G          D

Cause it turned out better

C    G       D

     So much better

C    G       D           Em

     Than we ever did expect

 

                    G                   Em                    G

           G                  D

Find your treasures where you will

Em                                   C 

Don't you stop until you've had your fill

    G                       D

Wherever you may go, look around take it slow

      C                                 D

There might be more to this than we all know

 

    G                       D

And if we had the chance to see the rough draft

  Em                                C

I bet the early plans would make us laugh

       G                           D

And it never seems to help when we try to intervene

C                             D

Some things are better left unseen

 

CHORUS:

C    G     D        

Reconvene, reconnect

C       G            D

Raise a glass to the architect

C        G          D

Cause it turned out better

C    G       D

     So much better

C    G       D           Em

     Than we ever did expect

Raise a glass to the architect
