Capo at 2nd fret:

               C           F
The kitchen is cold
                  C           F
But the coffee is warm
                     G     
And the sun's coming up
                 F
The day has just begun
                   C           F
And you're already bored.

                     C           F
Bored of cheering me up
                    C           F
Bored of calming me down
                   G
Bored of drying my eyes
                     F
But there once was a time 
                  C           F
when you were the one.

                         C           F
You were the blue of the sky
                   C           F
You came after the storm
                           G
You were the switch on the wall
                   F
In the dark of the hall
                   C           F
I'm still fumbling for

                      C           F
Cause I'm lost in the black
                     C           F
I don't know where I am.
                      G
Arms stretched out in front
                 F
I'm calling your name
                  C           F
Just as loud as I can

  G                                     Am
I know there's words that we will never speak
        G                  Am            G
And the questions can't be answered easily
                G
But I wanted to be easy so

Am                        D
... Nod your head if the plans have changed
G                         C
... Shake it, love, they stayed the same
Am                  D
... Smile at me and I will stay
G                         C
... Start to cry and I'll go away
     D                     G
Just please don't leave me guessing.

               C           F
So you made me come
                 C           F
Then you sent me away
                 C           F
Like a messenger bird
                 G
So I circled the earth
                  F
Blown away in the wind
               C           F
But I always returned

                     C           F
With some new little song
                  C           F
Some sad story to tell
                G
Of a brief love affair
              F
With a girl I compared
               C           F
to you and she failed

                              C           F
You said you don't want me to beg
                               C           F
Then you said get down on your knees
                      G
Cause you knew that I would
            F
If I do any good
                C           F
satisfying your needs.

           G                                Am
And I know all about those things we cannot speak
         G                Am                G
And just so you know well they don't bother me
                     G
So you don't have to be worried, just

Am                       D 
... Nod your head if the plans have changed
G                           C
... Shake it, love, if they stayed the same
Am                  D
... Smile at me and I will stay
G                         C
... Start to cry and I'll go away
     D                    G
Just please don't keep me waiting

     Am                        D
Just ... nod your head if your mind's been changed
G                           C
... Shake it, love, if some hope remains
     Am                      D
Just ... say the word and of course I'll stay
G                           C
... Roll your eyes and I'll go away
     D                     G
Just please don't leave me guessing.
     Am                   G
Just please don't keep me waiting
