    D5    D5addC#     Dsus4       Asus4      

        He comes for     conver   -   sation,                

    D5     D5addC#     Dsus4            Asus4     

            I comfort      him sometimes

    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
