G             G/F#             Em

   I'm in love with the world

                  D                  C    

Through the eyes of a girl

                  Em7/B                     A (1)

Who's still around the morning after

 

G                      G/F#              Em

   We broke up a month ago

             D                       C    

I grew up I didn't know

             Em7/B                  A (1)

I'd be around the morning after

 

Instrumental Verse

 

G                          G/F#               Em

   It's always been wait and see

                  D                             C        

A happy day and then you pay

                    Em7/B                   A (1)

And feel like shit the morning after

 

G                      G/F#                   Em

     But now I feel changed around

                  D                      C

And instead of falling down

                    Em7/B                A (1)

I'm standing up the morning after

 

C       D                       Em

   Situtations get fucked up

                    G                          A (1)     C/G (1)  

But turned around sooner or later

 

G                      G/F#              Em

  And I could be another fool

              D                      C

Or an exception to the rule

               Em7/B               A (1)

You tell me the morning after

 

Bridge:

G              G/D#                 G/E

Crooked spin can't come to rest

       G/F                  G/E

I'm damaged bad at best

            G/D                 C (1)

She'll decide what she wants

 

G                 G/D#                 G/E

I'll probably be the last to know

              G/F            G/E

No one says until it shows

                    G/D   A (1)

And you see how it is

 

        / G F - Em /       Em    C

They want you or they don't     Say yes

 

G             G/F#             Em

   I'm in love with the world

                  D                  C    

Through the eyes of a girl

                  Em7/B                     A (hold)

Who's still around the morning after
