Gtr. 2: (quickly pick the chords- not sure on the pattern) Am Bm C Dm Em F she's crossing out the details. Em Dm Am Bm dusting off the picture frames, it's saturday. C Dm Em F Em Dm she's been waiting for the phone to ring. Am she's been waiting all night. Bm C Dm Em F but it doesn't matter who's on the line Em Dm Am Bm as long as the voice works. C Dm Em F Em Dm but you're too scared of what you might say. Am Bm C Dm so you think it out on paper, hypothetical and safer. Em F Em while she's thumbing through her catalogues, Dm Am Bm picking birthday cards, her favourite stars. C Dm Em F Em Dm i guess she's lonelier than you. Chorus: Both Guitars (Strumming): A5 B5 C5 D5 Am And if this box is empty

Gtr 2 (Back to picking): Am Bm ..empty C Dm Em F go out and find another one. Em Dm with a prettier design. Am Bm and greater depth inside. C Dm Em F Em Dm and a lid to keep it all from spilling out. Post Chorus:

Gtr 2: C G and you can fill it up with letters. F back when things were better. C G and both of you had blinders on F Am Bm and story books together. C Dm Em F Em Dm Am Bm and you pretend it outweighs all the bad things. C Dm Em F Em Dm and now she disconnects her phone, after the second ring. Am Bm and all the drama you can swallow. C Dm Em F Em Dm Am Bm never check your ego. C Dm Em F Em Dm i guess no one's lonelier than you. Outro:
