F# F# A A D D x2

A A
Funny what you think of after a collapse
G G
While lying in the dirt the first thing that comes back is never quite what you’d have guessed
F#m F#m
And if you could have, you probably would’ve said you’d check if all your limbs were intact still and then try to get out
A A
We played house with the neighbors in their basement
D D A A
Sister made me husband she was older so I did her bidding
G G B B G G F#m F#m
I remember once their dad came in said, “You think this is bad?
You don’t know the half.” And he laughed.
A A Bm Bm
It’s funny what things come back
The first things you see
C# C# D D Bm Bm
How he sort of smiled like it’s only a joke but he was lying
C# C# F#m F#m
There was something else inside of his eyes
E E D D
All those secrets people tell to little children
Bm Bm
Are warnings that they give them
C# C# F# F#
Like, “Look, I’m unhappy. Please don’t make the same mistake as me.”
C# C# F# F# A A D D F# F#
Why are those old worn out jokes on married life told at toasts at receptions still?
F#m F#m A A D D Bm Bm A A
How does it never occur how often couples get burned and end uncertain in Splitsville?
G G F#m F#m
Funny what you think of in the wreckage, lying there in the dirt and the dust and the glass
A A
How you’re suddenly somewhere, in the desert, in the nighttime, and it’s getting close to Christmas
G G
And then her and that movie voice she uses when she reads,
F# F#
“Welcome to the Land of Enchantment” from a highway sign
F#m F#m F# F#
And it’s late so you take the next exit
Bm Bm G G
When that trip ended we came back the rent was due I was jobless
Em Em
I guess in retrospect I should’ve sensed decay
G G
Then that day, how you said, “I just don’t know” and I promised

We’d rearrange things to fix the mess I’d made here
F#m F#m F# F# A A Bm Bm
But I guess in the end we just moved furniture around
F# F# A A D D
But I guess in the end we just moved furniture around
F#m F#m F# F# A A Bm Bm
But I guess in the end we just moved furniture around

F#m F#m A A D D E E D D Bm Bm
But I guess in the end it sort of feels like every day it’s harder to stay happy where you are
C# C# F#m F#m E E
There are all these ways to look through the fence into your neighbor’s yard
D D Bm Bm
Why even risk it? It’s safer to stay distant
C# C#
When it’s so hard now to just be content
F# F#
Because there’s always something else
F#m F#m A A D D
Now I’m proposing my own toast, composing my own joke for those married men
F# F# A A D D
Maybe I’m miserable, I’d rather run for mayor in Splitsville than suffer your jokes again
