Capo 3

[After the chorus she does a little finger picking. 
I'm not 100% on this part but it goes a little something like this -

|------------------------------------------------|
|---------------0----1(p)0------------------0----|
|-------------0--------------------------0-------|
|-----------0-------------------------0----------|
|--------2-------------------------2-------------|
|--3--3----------3-3---------3--3--------------3-|

I have indicated it with an (*)

She plays the C chord as X32003. Not sure what the true name is.]

Em   G   C               Em G C
(OOoooooOOOOOooo)        (OOoooooOOOOOooo)

 Em                      
He told her when she played, 
         Am               Em
wings sprouted from her shoulder blades 
     G                              D
And every bone inside her seemed to change.
    Em           
So on her fingers moved 
      Am                    Em
Over notes she hoped would soothe,
      G                            D
His jagged soul, caressing every groove.


     C                    G     
Oh and how she longed to say
             Em                 D 
That she'd missed his troubled ways,
     C                     G            D 
Oh and if she could she'd do it all again.
             C                       Bm 
Cause sometimes every word has been used,
           Em               D
And theres nothing left to do
   C                   G                 D               *
But hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.

    Em                     Am             Em
A year ago today New York City seemed to fall away,
    G                                D           
To leave only the bed in which they laid.
       Em                                               
But an island is just that
        Am                  Em              
Oh and when the world came flooding back
      G                                D    
All pillars underneath them began to crack

      C                   Bm             
Now he's sitting on her floor
               Em              D                  
She's playing all the minor chords
     C                     G                D
Wishing so damn hard he'd kiss her like before 
     C                        Bm
Sometimes every word has been used,
             Em             D
And theres nothing left to do
   Cadd9                G                D               *
But hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.
 
    C                  G                 D                 Em G C 
Yeah hold the one you can't love in the sweet arms of a tune. 

  Em G C            Em G C          
(OOOOOooooo)        (OOOOOooooo)      

              C                      G
Cause sometimes every inch of you is bruised,
             Em               D   
And theres nothing left to prove
       C                 G                 D               *
So just hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.

      C               G                 D                 *     
Yeah hold the one you can't love in the sweet arms of a tune.
