G1  G7sus4       Am7
The mi- - nus is love-less,
   G2          G7sus4
He talks to the      land
G1            Am7
And the leaves   fall
And the pond over-ices.

    G1             Am7
She don’t know the sys-tem, plus
G6sus2,4         Gmaj7
She      don’t un- - -derstand
          G2            G7sus4    G1  Am7
She’s got all the wrong fu- - ses and spli-ces
      G2        G7sus4      G1 Am7
She’s not gonna fix   it up        too easy.

G1  G7sus4         Am7
The mask- ing tape tan-gles,
     G2              G7sus4
It’s stic-ky and black.   And
G1  Am7
The cop-per
Proud headed Queen      Lizzie
    G1           Am7
Con-ducts little char-ges
     G6sus2,4    Gmaj7
That don’t   get charged back.”

          G         G7sus4  G        Am7
Well, the technical man- - -u- -al’s bus-y
      G         G7sus4     G1   Am7
She’s not gonna fix   it up  too   easy.

        G             G7sus4
And she holds out her flash- light
    G1  Am7
And she shines it on me.
    G2          G7sus4
She wants me to tell  her
G1       Am7
What the trouble might be.

Well, I’m learning
It’s peaceful
       G6sus2,4        Gmaj7
With a good    dog and some  trees,
       G2             G7sus4
Out of touch with the break- down
G1          Am7
Of this cen-tury
        G2        G7sus4      G1
They're not gonna fix   it up
    Too easy

G1 – G7sus4 – G1 – Am7 – G1
G2 – G1 – G7sus4 – G1
Am7 – G7sus4
G1 – Am7 – G6sus2,4 – Gmaj7
G2 – G7sus4 – G1 – Am7

We once loved - together
And we floodlit that time
Input – output – electricity
But the lines overloaded
And the sparks started flying
And the loose wires
Were lashing out at me
She's not gonna fix it up
Too easy
But she hold out her candle
And she shines it in
And she begs him to show her
How to fix it again
While the song that he sang her
To soothe her to sleep
Runs all through her circuits

    Like a heartbeat
      G2        G7sus4       G1  Am7
She's not gonna fix   it up
    F6/G  G7
Too eas- - -y

ending: F6/G – G7 (repeat until fade)
