INTRO / THE VERSE WHERE SHE CHEATED ON HIM

E

ESo the wind that blows across your room,
A Carried cheap perfume onto your dresser,
E It rained for jewelery and for credit cards,
A ETwo tickets to a film I don't remember,
A One day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phone,
ETo find I've been turned over,
AYou grab that piece of gold,
EOnly to find that the smell has taken over,
AAnd all the things you had,
B7They aren't the same
EAs what you hold
ENow I'm standin' in a room,
AThat's filled with older folks,
E They're pleading baby listen,
E And I scream as loud as anyone,
ABut when asked to make a point,
EI tend to whisper
ANow highways turn to tidal waves,
EAnd they're asking me to export all of your insecurities,
ABut that wind that blows across your room, it's gonna set the sails,
E B7And send me back to you, ooh,
CHORUS - THE MELLOW ONE
E Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
E And I think, I could make better use,
A Of my time on land,
E I'll drink less,
Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A Warm kiss instead of a cold goodbye
F# I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A Hey I'm doing all right

E AIt's a shame what your father did,
E A BTo your brothers head, he smashed it with the
E A E A BTelephone
E A Your mother got scared and locked the door,
E A B E A You were only four, but Lord, you remember it,
C#m B A So now you're scared of love
EI'm here to tell you love's not some fucking blood on the receiver
ALove is speaking in code
EIt's an inside joke, love is coming home
CHORUS - THE NOT MELLOW ONE
E Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
E And I think, I could make better use,
A Of my time on land,
E I'll drink less,
Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A Warm kiss, Instead of a cold goodbye
F# I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A Hey I
THE VERSE WHERE HE'S OVER HER
EYeah I'm doing alright
AYeah I'm doin' just fine
F# AAn' if she seems as lonely as me, Let her sink
EYeah I'm doin' alright,
AYeah I'm doin' just fine,
F#An' if she seems as lonely as me, let her,
ASink, you let her, sink, well let her!
