    Intro:  / B/F# - - - / C# - - - / x3

                / B - - - / C# - - - /

     

    Verse 1:

    B/F#        C#          B/F#      C#

    Called to see if your back was still aligned

                       B/F#      C#                             B                      C#

    and your sheets are growing grass all on the corners of your bed

           B/F#                C#                           B/F#               C#

    but you've got too much to wear on your sleeves and it's too much to do with me

    B/F#            C#                    B                    C#

              and secretly I want to bury in the yard

            D#m                   E         

    the grey remains of a friendship scarred

     

    Repeat Intro (w/Electric)

     

    Verse 2:

           B/F#               C#                                  B/F#                       C#

    You told us of your new life there you've got someone coming round gluing

    B/F#                    C#                     B                       C#

    tinsel to your crown     he's got you talking pretty loud

        B/F#      C#              B/F#                         C#

    Berate, remember, your ailing heart and your criminal eyes

           B/F#                       C#       B                          C#

    you say you're still in love if it's true what can be done?

           D#m                           E         

    it's hard to leave all those moments behind

    / B/F# - - - / C# - - - / x2

     

             B/F#         C#         B                     C#

    You tested your mettle of doe's skin and petals

               B/F#       C#               B                  C#

    while kissing the lipless who bleed all the sweetness away

     

    / D#m - - - / E - - - / B - - - / C# - - - / x3

     

    / D#m - - - / E - - - / F# (hold)
