Intro: G

Verse 1:
Give up the ghost
C       G
Hold me close
G                     C        G
Sing me the song that you love most
G		    D             Em           C
The words hang like diamonds with music inside them
Em           C
Colliding in time with your mouth
Find me alone
C       G
Walk me home
G               C            G
Show me a world I've not yet known
G                 D              Em                C
The buildings are breathing they cry while they're sleeping
Em                  C
We're hurting their feelings somehow

C          D                    
So send an apology made of technology 
Em                      C
Bricks turn to circuits instead
C                       D             
Sing like a microphone, talk like a telephone
Em                        C
Watch like a film in your head
Bleed like a needle
      D                      Em                      C
Don’t listen to people, they only say things so that something gets said
Cough like a cigarette
Turn like a tourniquet
Em                      C
Burn like a fire truck, red 
C                       D               
Sleep like a pillow and wake like a window 
   Em                       C
In winter with snow-covered ledge

C                             D
The birds will return soon to bend round your bedroom 
Em                       C
While radios talk to the dead
C                                            G
Will you dream like bed, dream like a bed


Verse 2: (repeat previous chord pattern)
Whisper and speak
Touch my cheek
Show me the smile that makes me weak
Cars crash whenever we kiss everything vanishes
Sweetness is all I feel
Write on my hand
Breathe in the way only you can
You know that you are both the love note caught in my throat and the hope that it’s real
So end like a funeral send out the usual static release from your lungs
Swallow like medicine I think you’re better that anything under the sun
Oh, life re-mystified 
Oh, walking valentine
Oh, unimaginable love
Smoke like a factory, steal my identity
Sell it right back to me now
Break like tradition in need of revision 
Transmissions will listen like sound
Think like a memory, warm and Septembery
Endlessly coming unwound
‘Till you find yourself out with the graves in the ground
Tears rolling out of eyes as wet as a cloud
But it’s only the sound of your joy coming down
