Title:  Picture Window
Music By Ben Folds
Lyrics By Nick Hornby

F(9)  C   
 
G                               F(9)            C      G
They checked into the hospital new year's eve 
                         F(9)                   C      G
Nothing to be done about that
                          F(9)                  C      G
Rainbows, daffodils; she's not na´ve
                          F(9)                  C      G
Symbolism's all crap

                                      F(9)
There's a big picture window in their room
	            C	                 G
On the ward, with a view of a parliament hill
        Dm7(4)           F(9)     C      
But the view offers more joy than they can afford
G
When there's this much pain to kill

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F(9)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F(9)              C    G     F(9)     C      G
Got no place in days like these

                        F(9)                 C      
At dusk the darkness surrenders to color
       G
As the fireworks streak the sky
          F(9)                  C
And their window gives them the prettiest picture
       G
Their useless luck makes her wanna cry
F(9)                    C
Then it turns midnight, the shitty old year spent
   G
Another Mum gives her some sparkling wine
        F(9)         C      
And she nearly gives in to the moment
           G
But she'll still be sick in 2009

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F(9)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F(9)	         C     G    		
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)    G    Em    F  (repeat 3 times)  

Am7(4)                    C/G
Just as she's thinking of pulling the blind down
F(9)/A                          Csus
A rocket bursts in front of her eyes
Dm7(4)       
The city lit up like a crown on London
        C                  F(2)         F6
And she tries and fails to stop spirits rise

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F(9)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F(9)			
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F(9)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F(9)	           C/E    G     F(9)     C /E     G
Got no place in days like these
