    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
