Intro: D D C C G G D D (x2)


Verse 1:

D D
Take your hand,
C C
And place it in my pocket,

Flick your eyes back in their sockets
G G
Put those thoughts away
D D
Sometimes they're much too loud
D D
I'll take a breath
C C
And cradle your sweet head
G G
Should've stayed at home in bed
D D
Put that face away I'm melting for you


Pre-Chorus:

G G
I know,
Bm Bm
I get cold
D D
Cause I can't leave things well alone

Understand I'm accident prone
G G Bm Bm
Me, I get free
C C G G
Every night the moon is mine


Chorus:

D D
But when the morning comes
C C
Don't say you love me,
G G
Don't say you need me
D D
I really don't think that's fair
D D C C
Boy, I'm not so dumb, but when you leave me
G G D D
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there


Verse 2:

D D C C
I dreamt about another girl in bed with you
G G
You just laughed and smiled, denied the proof
D D
We're fine till I think of a problem
D D
I wish it made sense,
C C
Like a joke that no one gets,
G G
It's a life without regret
D D
I want it to feel that way, forever and ever

Pre-Chorus:

G G
I know,
Bm Bm
I get cold
D D
Cause I can't leave things well alone

Understand I'm accident prone
G G Bm Bm
Me, I get free
C C G G
Every night the moon is mine


Chorus:

D D
But when the morning comes
C C
Don't say you love me,
G G
Don't say you need me
D D
I really don't think that's fair
D D C C
Boy, I'm not so dumb, but when you leave me
G G D D
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there


G G D D
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there
G G D D
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you (x2)

Bridge:

C C
No, don't say you love me,
G G
Don't say you need me
D D
I really don't think that's fair
D D C C
Whoa, I'm not so dumb, but when you leave me
G G D D
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you


G G D D
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there
G G D D
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you (Play until end)
