Verse 1:
G/B               C             D
   Well Iíve been huddled up alone
                       
By the fire even though
G/B          C             G   D
   Iím not exactly feeling cold
G/B                 C               D
   And Iíve been bundled up for days
                         
Too confused to be amazed
G/B           C         G     D
   At all the icy water in my veins


Pre-chorus:
C  G/B  D                   C  Em  D
         Why do I feel so alone?


Verse 2:
G/B               C              D
   Yeah Iíve been moving in and out

Of this old split-level house
G/B             C                G           D
   And Iíd just as soon burn the whole place down
G/B              C              D
   ĎCause I quit working lumberyards

To build a mansion out of cards
Am           C                 G     D     
  But I feel thin behind these paper walls


Pre-chorus:
C  G/B  D                   C   Em  D
         Why do I feel so alone?

Chorus:
          G        D
Cause the angriest bark 
          Am             C
Is always worse than the bite
         G          D
Like the ache in my chest
              F        C
That my heart didnít invite
           G          D
But if the prettiest romance
      Am        C
Isnít perfectly right
           Am         G/B
That makes every love lost
       C       D
Just a holiday every night


Interlude (x2): G  Am  G/B  C  G  Am  C  D


Verse 3:
G/B               C                     D
   Well Iíve been painting through the night

In the basement out of sight
G/B         C            G         D
   Brushing paper tigers black and white
G/B              C            D
   ĎCause come tomorrow afternoon

Iíll fill a helium balloon
Am               C           G      D
  And set them free into the baby blue sky


Pre-chorus:
C  G/B  D                           C  Em  D
         So they wonít have to be alone


Chorus


Bridge:
F             C                G             D
 But when I close these heavy lids after dark
    F                  C             
Each sweet dream is a target
           D               Em        C           D
And all my shots are so consistently wide of the mark


Chorus:
          G        D
Cause the angriest bark 
          Am             C
Is always worse than the bite
         G          D
Like the ache in my chest
              F        C
That my heart didnít invite
           G          D
But if the prettiest romance
      Am        C
Isnít perfectly right
           Am         G/B
That makes every love lost
       C       D
Just a holiday every night
Am  G/B       C      D            
       Just a holiday every night
Am  G/B       C      D            
       Just a holiday every night


Interlude (x2):
G  Am  G/B  C  G  Am        C       D
                     Just a holiday every night 

G  Am  G/B  C  G  Am  C  D



Ending:
G/B               C             D
   Well Iíve been huddled up alone
                       
By the fire even though
G/B          C             G   D
   Iím not exactly feeling cold
G/B             C                 D
   But how my heartache hit the trail
 
When a paper tiger tail
Am           C                  G     D
   Fluttered down, I guess Iíll never know
