    e    b       e      b
Shut out, pimpled and angry
    e     b            a          b
I quietly tied all my guts into knots
e     b  e         b    
Gave up trying to make 'em
e             b            a            b
Figured it'd take 'em too long to look up

C#minor              e          a                    e  
And besides, it was undeniably clear to me, I dunno why
           C#minor         d                        a
When every other part of love seemed locked behind shutters
    b  
I knew the worthless dregs we've always been

e       b               e        b
Lucked out, found my favourite record
e         b            a         b
Lying in wait at the Birmingham Mall
e     b            e           b        e
The songs that I heard, the occasional book
          b    a      b        G#
Were the only fun I ever took
       a            b      e
And I got on with making myself

G#       a        b                   C
Now the trick is just making yourself
C                                              g
But when they're parking their cars on your chest
g                                       C
You've still got a view of the summer sky
C                                 g                           C
To make it hurt twice when your restless body caves to it's whim
C                                 Bminor
And suddenly struggles to take flight

Repeat Intro

e                b          e
Three thousand miles north-east
    b           e              b      a         b             e
I left all my friends at the morning bus stop shaking their heads
e              b             e           b          e
What kind of life you dream of? You're allergic to love
       b          a           b       C#minor
Yes I know but I must say in my own defense
           e           a                  e  
It's been undeniably dear to me, I dunno why
            C#minor        e           a              e
When every other part of love seemed locked behind shutters
   b 
I knew the worthless dregs we are
The selfless, loving saints we are
                                         e
The melting, sliding dice we've always been
