Places Named After Numbers

By Frank Black

From his self-titled album


A love song written for a black hole.
The string-arranged intro is skipped here.

[verse 1]
G               E    A               G
  Beyond below above  A gravity that slumbers
                E   A                    G
At the center of      Places named after numbers
                    E
A different kind of love


[chorus]
A         C#m
  She was right
A         C#m
  She was right there
A         C#m                 D    F
  She was right there all the time
                   Am  E
Collapsing all the way


[verse 2]
G                           E    A                      G
   And though it seems from here   That she was never there
                            E    A                      G
Light beams disappear              Into her blackened hair
                 E
I wonder if they re - appear
