"Smell the Color Nine"
Capo 1st Fret

Em7 - Bm7 - C2 - G
Em7 - Bm7 - C2 G - D (repeat)

        Em7            Bm7            C2               G
I would take no for an answer just to know I heard you speak
        Em7                Bm7            C2         G          D
And I'm wonderin' why I've never seen the signs they claim they see
        Em7            Bm7            C2               G
Are there special revelations Meant for everybody but me?
      Em7           Bm7               C2     G        D
Maybe I don't truly know you or maybe I just simply believe.

             D                   C          
'Cause I can sniff, I can see, I can count up pretty high
          G                           C
But these faculties aren't getting me any closer to the sky
       D                                C   
But my heart of faith keeps pounding so I know I'm doing fine  
              G                        C          
But sometimes finding you is just like trying to 
                     D - C - D - C
Smell the color nine.

Now I've never "felt the presence" but I know You're always near
And I've never "heard the calling" but somehow I know You've led me right here.
So I'm not looking for burning bushes or some divine graffiti to appear
I'm just beggin' You for Your wisdom and I believe You're putting some here.

Repeat Chorus

Short instrumental bridge - NC

Repeat Chorus 2x

Smell the Color Nine?
But nine's not a color 
And even if it were you can't smell a color
That's my point exactly...
