Your New Twin Sized Bed

Death Cab For Cutie

 

Drop D

Capo 1

 

Intro:  / D - A - / G - - - / x2

 

D (½)                   A (½)                G                                        Bm (½)     A (½)    G

   You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed

D (½)                   A (½)            G                              Bm (½)     A (½)    G

     With a single pillow underneath your single head

D (½)                   A (½)                         G                                                    Bm (½)     A (½)    G

   I guess you decided that that old queen was more space than you would need

D (½)                     A (½)                     G                                                 Bm (½)     A (½)    G

    Now it's in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says free

 

          Em                          Gm6                         D (½)     A (½)    G

And I hope you have more luck with this than me

 

D (½)                      A (½)            G                                   Bm (½)     A (½)    G

        You used to think that someone would come along.

D (½)             A (½)                G                             Bm (½)     A (½)    G

      And lay beside you in a space that they belong.

            D (½)                     A (½)           G                                      Bm (½)     A (½)    G

But the other side of the mattress and box springs stayed like new.

D (½)                       A (½)                G                                       Bm (½)     A (½)    G

     And what's the point of holding onto what never gets used?

 

Em                            Gm6                         D (½)     A (½)    G

      Other than a sick desire for self-abuse.

 

Bridge:

          D             Gmaj7                Bm           D

And I try not to worry, but you've got me terrified

      D/F#                               Bm

It's like your in some kind of hurry

                    Em              G (½)  Gm6 (½)                         

To say goodbye, say goodbye,                 to say goodbye

 

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

 

D (½)                   A (½)                G                                        Bm (½)     A (½)    G

   You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed

D (½)                   A (½)                G                                       

   You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed

 

End on D
