    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
