Title:  Picture Window
Music By Ben Folds
Lyrics By Nick Hornby

F(9)  C   
 
G F(9) C GThey checked into the hospital new year's eve
F(9) C GNothing to be done about that
F(9) C GRainbows, daffodils; she's not naïve
F(9) C GSymbolism's all crap
F(9)There's a big picture window in their room
C GOn the ward, with a view of a parliament hill
Dm7(4) F(9) C But the view offers more joy than they can afford
GWhen there's this much pain to kill
Dm7(4)You know what hope is?
GHope is a bastard
C/EHope is a liar
F(9)A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)Hope comes near you?
GKick it's backside
C/E F(9) C G F(9) C GGot no place in days like these
F(9) C At dusk the darkness surrenders to color
GAs the fireworks streak the sky
F(9) CAnd their window gives them the prettiest picture
GTheir useless luck makes her wanna cry
F(9) CThen it turns midnight, the shitty old year spent
GAnother Mum gives her some sparkling wine
F(9) C And she nearly gives in to the moment
GBut she'll still be sick in 2009
Dm7(4)You know what hope is?
GHope is a bastard
C/EHope is a liar
F(9)A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)Hope comes near you?
GKick it's backside
C/E F(9) C G Got no place in days like these
Dm7(4) G Em F (repeat 3 times)
Am7(4) C/GJust as she's thinking of pulling the blind down
F(9)/A CsusA rocket bursts in front of her eyes
Dm7(4) The city lit up like a crown on London
C F(2) F6And she tries and fails to stop spirits rise
Dm7(4)You know what hope is?
GHope is a bastard
C/EHope is a liar
F(9)A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)Hope comes near you?
GKick it's backside
C/E F(9) Got no place in days like these
Dm7(4)You know what hope is?
GHope is a bastard
C/EHope is a liar
F(9)A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)Hope comes near you?
GKick it's backside
C/E F(9) C/E G F(9) C /E GGot no place in days like these
