Clark Gable
The Postal Service

It's the same chord progression all the way through.

VERSE 1
G                                           Em                         Bm
I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London underground when it struck me

G                                            Em                                    Bm 
That I've been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie 

G                                Em                          Bm
So I changed my plans I rented a camera and a van and then I called you

G                           Em                            Bm 
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again" and you agreed to

CHORUS
G                  Em                                         Bm       
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"

G                        Em                           Bm
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

INSTRUMENTAL
G Em Bm

VERSE 2
G                                 Em                        Bm
I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in

G                                 Em                          Bm
The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it

G                               Em                                 Bm
The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set" and then called "action!"

G                                Em                                           Bm
And I kissed you in a style that Clark Gable would have admired (I thought it classic)

CHORUS
G                  Em                                         Bm     
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"

G                        Em                           Bm
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

G                              Em                             Bm
I know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear

G                                 Em                                Bm
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by? 

(I like to speed up my playing here to fit the faster drums)

G                                 Em                        Bm 
                                  That you tell yourself to get by?

G                                 Em                        Bm
                                  That you tell yourself to get by?
