Capo 1st Fret


INTRO
C | Dm | C | F  (x4)

VERSE
C              Dm
I'm going on a date tonight
C                F                C
  To try to fall out of love with you
                 Dm 
I know, I know this is a crime
C                  F            C
  But I don't know what else to do

C | Dm | C | F

My love, you're in a magazine
My love, you're doing fine, you're on TV
You pull my heart out and then you run away
From Chicago to Cleveland you leave me pain
Dm             C     F
  You leave me pain

CHORUS
C                            Dm
When you're lucid you're the sweetest thing
C                  F                  C
  I would trade my mother to hear you sing
                             Dm
When you're lucid you're the sweetest thing
C                  F
  I would trade my mother

VERSE 
On the bus radio, 
"Fifty ways to leave your lover alone"
I laughed at the irony
But life is stupid, the irony all lost on me
It got lost on me

(CHORUS)

INSTRUMENTAL
C | Dm | C | F  (x2)

G | F | G | Am | Dm 

VERSE 
You challenged me to write a love song
Here it is, I think I got it wrong
I focused on the negative
The pain was too much to write and sing
Oh, it was not a nice incentive

CHORUS
When you're lucid you're the sweetest thing   
I would trade my mother to hear you sing     (X3)

When you're lucid you're the sweetest thing
I would trade my mother

    C         Dm
But she don't know 
     C           F
Just how far I'd go
        C                  Dm
Would I walk for a hundred miles 
      C                        F
for a glimpse of your northern smile?

OUTRO
C | Dm | C | F  (x4) 

C |
