Intro: E to Amaj7 [x3]

Verse 1 Chords:
E                                       Amaj7  E
The Eiffel Tower built to smaller scale
                                       Amaj7   E   
The freshest oxygen I ever inhaled
                                           Amaj7    E   
I tapped a bottle against the safety rail killing time

Amaj7 to E
                                       Amaj7  E
And you were like a walking compliment
                                              Amaj7  E
Tall in stature and exceptionally (well) read
                                       Amaj7  E
In dummy glasses and a cardigan, oh, come on
           G              A                                  
And oh so empty were the faces 
                                      E   Amaj7  E
of the dealers and the waitresses around

Amaj7 to E

                                                                    
You said that all these things 
                        Amaj7 E
you've learned to ignore
                                      Amaj7 E
The hidden cameras on the casino floor
                                          Amaj7 E
And what gets paid for behind hotel doors, oh, come on
         G                       A                      E  Amaj7 E
Pretend every slot machine is a robot amputee waving hello

           G
The people stare into their eyes
         A                                   E   Amaj7 E
And they feed them little bribes and then they go


Interlude: E to Amaj7 [x3]


F#m                 G#       F#m
    The never-ending twilight 
                        C#m      B     F#m
In a basement where the sun has never spilt
                       G# 
You said that you were lonely
    C#m     B           F#m               E  Amaj7  E  Amaj7 E
And then we kissed like lonely people do

                                      Amaj7  E
You said this city has a beating heart
                                      Amaj7  E
That pushes people down the boulevard
                                           Amaj7  E
And they're all hoping for a wish fulfilled
                             Amaj7  E
In a desert for a dollar bill
                                                   Amaj7  E
Those foolish dreams, you know they plague me still, oh, come on
           G                            A 
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers 
                   E      Amaj7 E
and the waitresses around
          G                            A     
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers 
                    E    Amaj7 E
and the waitresses around

C#m  G#  Amaj7  E  F#m  E
      They're empty.....................
