Verse 1:

C         C/B        Am     Fmaj7
I heard about your trip.

C         C/B        Am     Fmaj7
I heard about your souvenirs.

C         C/B      Am         
I heard about the cool breeze, 

             Fmaj7
and the cool nights, and the 

C       C/B          Am         Fmaj7
cool guys, that you spent them with.



Prechorus:

C                     C/B           Am      Fmaj7
I guess I should have heard of them from you.

C                     C/B           Am       Fmaj7
I guess I should have heard of them from you.



Chorus:

C               G         F
Don't you see, don't you see,

         C           G    F
that the charade is over.

      C               
And all the best deceptions 

         G            F
and the clever cover story

C           G  F
awards go to you.



Verse 2:

C (ring)          
So kiss me hard,

        G                    F              C         G    F
'Cause this will be the last time that I'll let you.

C                      G     F
You will be back someday

                 C                     
and this awkward kiss that tells of 

                G     F           C
other people's lips will be of service

         G  F   C    G   F
to giving you a  -  way.

I heard from someone that you wish you could

C         C/B     Am     Fmaj7
set things right between us.

        C                   C/B           Am      Fmaj7
Well, I guess I should have heard of that from you.

and this awkward kiss that screams of 

                G     F           C
other people's lips will be of service

               G  F  
to giving you away.

                  C   G  F
...To giving you a - way



Outro:

C                  C/B                  Am    
I'm waiting for blood to flow to my fingers.

        Fmaj7     -      C*          C   
I'll be alright when my hands get warm.

              C/B                    Am 
Ignoring the phone. I'd rather say nothing.

               Fmaj7 C*       C
I'd rather you never heard my voice.

                   C/B
You're calling too late...

                Am
Too late to be gracious.

           Fmaj7 -  C*          C   
You do not warrant long goodbyes.

                    C/B
You're calling too late...

                    Am
You're calling too late...

                    Fmaj7 - C*  C (ring)
You're calling too late...
