A A
Thought I saw you in the Battleship
D D Bm Bm
But it was only a look a like
A A
She was nothing but a vision trick
D D Bm Bm
Under the warning light

F#m F#m A A F#m F#m
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
A A
But my chances turned to toast
D D Bm Bm A A
When I asked her if I could call her your name

I thought I saw you in the Rusty Hook
Huddled up in wicker chair
I wandered up for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close, and she held me very tightly
Till I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name

D D Bm Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m F#m
Yeah I let him go the long way round
Bm Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
E E A A
And kept my shortcuts to myself

(back to verse chords)
I thought I saw you in the Parrots Beak
Messing with the smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken arm

F#m F#m A A F#m F#m
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
A A D D
And she wrote it out in letraset
Bm Bm C#m C#m
No you can't call me her name

A A C#m C#m A A
Tell me where's your hiding place
C#m C#m
I'm worried I'll forget your face
F#m F#m
And I've asked everyone
Bm Bm E E
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

D D Bm Bm
I elongated my lift home
F#m F#m D D
Yeah I let him go the long way round
Bm Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
Dm Dm
And kept my shortcuts to myself

(verse chords)
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
On the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own
I thought she might understand

She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
D D (one strum)
She said I'm really not supposed to but yes,
Bm Bm(one strum) A A (let it ring)
You can call me anything you want
