      I sent it via pantomime

G                                            Em6
      While you were watching someone else

Em7/C                          Em6/A
      I stared at you and cut myself

      I'm amorous but out of reach

Em7/C                        Em6/A
      A still life drawing of a peach

       I'm a tulip in a cup

       I stand no chance of growing up

    I made it to a dinner date

    My teardrops seasoned every plate

G                                 Em6
    I tried to dance but lost my nerve

Em7/C                         Em6/A 
    I cramped up in the learning curve

       I stand no chance of growing up 

G                                    Em6
       I'm resigned to sail on through

       In the wake of tales of you

I root for you
