Intro: C G C G F G C G 

C            G                  C
 step out to clutch the evening air 
           G              F               G                  C     G
Ďstraction from your disrepair and all of those who say they know 
C         G               C              G                   F
 walk the balustrade till dawn you wonít blink and you wonít yawn
      G                 C      G
never let your weakness show
Am                 G              F               Am       G        F
though i keep your picture on the wall unplug the phone in case you call
         G                 C       G
and dust collects upon the sill
Am                 G                 C                      G         F
still you misplace all your faith in words as though youíll ever feel assured
             G              C       G
if you donít know you never will 

Chorus:
C              G             Am     G
but no i never meant you any harm 
Dm          Am              G
suffocating shelter of your arms
C            G      Dm             F           (G) C
if i let you down it wasnít me but you who kept me round
       G         C     G 
linger on linger on 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/t/two-gallants/110157.html ]
C              G                   C             G                 F
and while your tears fall dawn his cheek for the fallen, small and meek
              G         C         G
look what the invalides compose
C                 G                   C             G             F
well he should've warned you from the start another callus on the heart
        G             C        G
another victim of the throes
Am          G              F               Am     G       F            G          C        G
so sip your cigarettes and tea be sure you never think of me when your vanities unload
Am               G                C                 G                    F
and in case your beauty makes you weep for what you touched but couldnít keep 
             G                C       G
for what you had but couldnít hold 

Chorus:
C              G             Am      G
but no i never meant you any harm 
Dm          Am              G
suffocating shelter of your arms
C             G               Dm             F            (G)C 
if you should feel betrayed it wasnít me but you who made me stay
       G         C    G
linger on linger on

C G Am G
F G C G

C                   G            C                G                  F
well iíll take your convalescent dreams patch the wounds and sew the seams 
        G             C       G
get you ready for the fall
C              G                C              G                 F
but should you miss me when iím gone girl your memory serves you wrong 
          G            C        G
you never needed me at all
Am                   G            F                Am         G       F
but you can miss the hollow of my hand and all the lives that we had planned 
        G              C          G
all the jealousies you sold 
Am                     G                 C           G             F
and iíll take back the youth you canít repay all the hours i gave away 
            G            C      G
and all the lies i never told

Chorus
C               G             Am   G
 but no i never meant you any harm 
Dm          Am              G
suffocating shelter of your arms 
C        G               Dm             F             (G)  C
and if i did you wrong it wasnít me but you who wrote this song
       G         C      G
linger on linger on
