Intro:

C C Am Am F F G G x2

Verse 1:
C C
We saw the western coast
F F
I saw the hospital
Am Am F F
Nursed the shoreline like a wound
C C
Reports of lover's tryst
F F
Were neither clear nor descript
Am Am
We kept it safe and slow
F F
The quiet things that no one ever knows


Chorus: x2
C C
So keep the blood in your head
Am Am
And keep your feet on the ground

If today's the day it gets tired
F F
Today's the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed
G G
All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals


Verse 2:
C C
I contemplate the day we wed
F F
Your friends are boring me to death
Am Am F F
Your veil is ruined in the rain
C C
By then it's you I can do without
F F
There's nothing new to talk about
Am Am
And though our kids are blessed
F F
Their parents let them shoulder all the blame


Chorus: x2
C C
So keep the blood in your head
Am Am
And keep your feet on the ground

If today's the day it gets tired
F F
Today's the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed
G G
All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals


Bridge 1:
C C, Am Am, F F, G G x2


C C Am Am
I lie for, only you,
F F G G
And I lie well, hallelu x2


Bridge 2:
C C Am Am
I lie for, only you
F F G G
And I lie well, hallelu x2


Chorus: x2
C C
So keep the blood in your head
Am Am
And keep your feet on the ground

If today's the day it gets tired
F F
Today's the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed
G G
All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals
