Intro:  / D5 - - D5addC# / Dsus4 - - D / x2

 

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4      

    He comes for     conver   -   sation,                

D5     D5addC#     Dsus4            Asus4     

        I comfort      him sometimes

 

D5    D5addC#      Dsus4       Asus4      

        Comfort and consultation,

F           E                 Asus4 (1)     

    he knows that's what he'll find

 

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4                Asus4

         I bring him       apples and cheeses,

D5    D5addC#      Dsus4       Asus4

        he brings me songs to play

D5    D5addC#       Dsus4       Asus4

        He sees me when he pleases,

F       E        Asus4 (1)

     I see him in cafes

 

          D5 (1)                                Dsus4 (1)

And I only say, hello, and turn away before his lady knows

D7sus4 Dsus4                       Asus4 (1)

             How much I want to see him

             D5 (1)                                         Dsus4 (1)

She removes him, like a ring to wash her hands, She only brings him out to

D7sus4    Dsus4    D (hold 1)

show her friends                  I want to free him

 

Repeat Intro

 

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

Secrets and sharing soda,

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

that's how our time began

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

Love is a story told to a

F       E        Asus4 (1)

friend, it's secondhand

 

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

       But I'll listen to his questions,

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

         I'll give my answers when they're found

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4

        He says she keeps him guessing,

F              E           Asus4 (2)

   but I know she keeps him down

 

          D5 (1)                                Dsus4 (1)

She speaks in sorry sentences, miraculous repentances

D7sus4 Dsus4                     Asus4 (1)

                 I don't believe her

        D5 (1)                                      Dsus4 (1)

Tomorrow he will come to me and speak his sorrow endlessly

       D7sus4   Dsus4    D (hold 1)

And ask me        why          Why can't I leave her?

 

Repeat Intro

 

D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4      

    He comes for     conver   -   sation,                

D5     D5addC#     Dsus4            Asus4     

        I comfort      him sometimes

 

D5    D5addC#      Dsus4       Asus4      

        Comfort and consultation,

F           E                 Asus4 (1)     

    he knows that's what he'll find

F           E                  Asus4 (2)

    He knows that's what            he'll find
