You wait for a silence
   AA chord          EE chord
I wait for a word
       DD chord            GbmGbm chord
Lying next to your frame

Girl unobserved

You change your position

You're changing me
   DD chord            GbmGbm chord
Casting these shadows
       EE chord             AA chord
Where they shouldn't be


DD chord           GbmGbm chord
We're interrupted
        AA chord          EE chord
By the heat of the sun
DD chord           GbmGbm chord
Trying to prevent
         AA chord       EE chord
What's already begun
DD chord              GbmGbm chord
You're just a body
        AA chord        EE chord
I can smell your skin

And when I feel it

You're wearing thin


     GbmGbm chord      DD chord  EE chord
But I've got a plan
           EE chord           GbmGbm chord
Why don't you be the artist

           EE chord           GbmGbm chord
Why don't you be the writer
  DD chord                AA chord
Decide the words I say?

Cause I'd rather pretend
            EE chord               GbmGbm chord
I'll still be there at the end
           DD chord           GbmGbm chord
Only it's too hard to ask
           EE chord          AA chord
Won't you try to help me?


DD chord           GbmGbm chord
Sat on your sofa
     AA chord            EE chord
It's all broken springs
       DD chord           GbmGbm chord
This isn't the place for
        AA chord        EE chord
Those violin strings
   DD chord           GbmGbm chord
I try out a smile
      AA chord         EE chord
And I aim it at you
     DD chord           GbmGbm chord
You must have missed it
       EE chord    AA chord
You always do



     GbmGbm chord      DD chord  EE chord
But I've got a plan

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
