My Moment of Brilliance (2013)

Tuned in Open E : From low E to high E: E B E G# B E

Main run:
Open/ 5th f on 2nd string/ 5th and then 3rd fret on 3rd string

Mainly open verses contain an A chord (A position on 5th fret)

Chorus contains an E chord
A position on the octave (12th fret)

My moment of brilliance, it came in a bag
Wasn’t wrapped to fancy, but better than rags
It almost blew right past me, but I reached out and grabbed it
Now that moment has come and gone, Oh yeah
That moment has come and gone

War and Peace is 1222 pages
Written by hand with the focus of a laser
Tolstoy’s moment of brilliance, it lasted some decades
But mine is the length of this song,
Leo, what am I doing wrong?

My moment of brilliance
My moment of brilliance
My moment of brilliance
My moment of brilliance
It lasts bout the length of this song,
Now that moment has come and gone

In 2002, I split the country into districts and wrote
Two and a half chapters of a land full of misanthropes
My girl, Hope, had it all over Katniss
But that manuscript is now somewhere in the attic
Looks like I lost that Hunger Game

I keep talking and talking about my moments of brilliance
And writing these songs, attention span of a goldfish
Impressing folks with my wall full of letters
But those letters are ABC, oh yeah
Don’t be impressed by me


And now I got me some brilliant children
So I can brag all day bout things I didn’t do
And hope that they make all of my dreams come true
And that Evan is really Tolstoy
He’ll have decades of brilliance, that boy

There is so much brilliance in this shiny head
They will be talking about it after I am dead
They’ll say She was so smart, and so well read
But there’s not much on her resume
And look where she is today
