Okkervil River - Happy Hearts chords

      
Pretty simple song. I'm pretty sure it was co-written with Daniel Johnston.


G D EmWhy must happy hearts break so hard
Am C D leave you curled up in the back seat of a car,
Em C Am7staring up at the windshield?
G D GWhen will broken hearts learn how to heal?
G D EmThis boy I knew was five years older than me
Am C DHis daddy'd left him when he was three.
Em C Am7After we went walking by a stream,
G C Dhe held me down and made me feel as bad as he.
G D EmWhy must happy hearts break so hard,
Am C D leave you standing in the darkness of the barn,
Em C Am7 staring at those rusty wheels?
G D G When will broken hearts learn how to heal?
C G D EmAnd everybody's searching for a place to put their love.
C GSee the people on the street?
DThey go home and what do you think they dream of?
C G D Em U-n-C-o-n-D-i-t-i-o-n-a-l l-o-v-e.
G DWhy did you leave me?
G D EmMother, why do you sleep with him?
Am C DHe says he's smothering, then he comes back again,
e C Am7in our house for the weekend.
G D GWhy must people's breaking hearts pretend?
G D EmWhy must happy hearts break so hard,
Am C Dleave you staring in the mirror at a bar?
Em C Am7Leave you talking to yourself,
G D Gbecause you can't talk to anybody else
