Regina Spektor's "Folding Chair".

*A note on this version:

This version is from a studio demo recorded a couple of years ago, and mirrors the version she played at live shows.

This is not the same version of "Folding Chair" that is on Regina's new album, "Far." Although the lyrics are identical, the Far album version includes additional musical production in addition to the piano.

You can download the studio demo version here from www.RespektOnline.com. Just search for the song name in the box.

The Far version is of course available on the retail album.

Come and open up your folding chair next to me
My feet are buried in the sand
And there's a breeze
There's a shadow
You can't see my eyes
And the sea is just a wetter version of the skies

Let's get a silver bullet trailer
And have a baby boy
I'll safety pin these clothes all cool
And you'll
Graffiti up his toys
I've got a perfect body
But sometimes I forget
I've got a perfect body
'Cause my eyelashes catch my sweat
Yes, they do
They dooo

Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo
Oo-oo-oo, oo
Ooo
Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo
Oo-oo-oo, oo
Ooo

Now, I've been sitting on this abandoned beach
For years
Waiting for the salty water
To cover up my ears
But every time the tide
Come in to take me home
I get scared
Now I'm sitting here alone
Dreaming of the dolphin song

Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo
Oo-oo-oo, oo
Ooo
Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo
Oo-oo-oo, oo
Ooo

Maybe one day you'll understand
I don't want nothing from you but to sweetly hold your hand
Till that day, just
Please don't be so down
Don't make frowns
You silly clown

Just come and open up your folding chair next to me
My feet are buried in the sand
And there's a breeze
There's a shadow
You can't see my eyes
And the waves are just a wetter* version of the skies

There's a shadow
You can't see my eyes
There's a shadow
You can't see my eyes


[* "Wetter" is sometimes replaced by "frothier" in some live versions.]
