Intro: EE chord

        EE chord
So the wind that blows across your room,
  AA chord       
Carried cheap perfume onto your dresser,
                EE chord                              
It rained for jewelery and for credit cards,
      AA chord                      EE chord
Two tickets to a film I don't remember,
      AA chord                          
One day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phone,
                        EE chord
To find I've been turned over,
     AA chord
You grab that piece of gold,
                                       EE chord
Only to find that the smell has taken over,
                      AA chord
And all the things you had,
                  B7B7 chord
They aren't the same
              EE chord
As what you hold


          EE chord
Now I'm standin' in a room,
                     AA chord
That's filled with older folks,
                     EE chord  
They're pleading baby listen,
         EE chord            
And I scream as loud as anyone,
           AA chord
But when asked to make a point,
           EE chord
I tend to whisper
     AA chord
Now highways turn to tidal waves,
                                            EE chord
And they're asking me to export all of your insecurities,
           AA chord
But that wind that blows across your room, it's gonna set the sails,
                     EE chord    B7B7 chord
And send me back to you, ooh,

Chorus:
EE chord
 Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
AA chord
 Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
    EE chord
 And I think, I could make better use,
AA chord
 Of my time on land,
       EE chord
 I'll drink less,

 Cause Lord knows I could use a,
AA chord
 Warm kiss instead of a cold goodbye
GbGb chord
 I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
AA chord
 Hey I'm doing all right

Verse:
         EE chord                     AA chord
It's a shame what your father did,
         EE chord                   AA chord        BB chord
To your brothers head, he smashed it with the
 EE chord     AA chord    EE chord AA chord BB chord
Telephone
         EE chord                   AA chord                   
Your mother got scared and locked the door,
           EE chord              AA chord    BB chord     EE chord       AA chord 
You were only four, but Lord, you remember it,
DbmDbm chord BB chord                AA chord         
    So now you're scared of love
                                                             EE chord
I'm here to tell you love's not some xxxxing blood on the receiver
           AA chord
Love is speaking in code
                                      EE chord
It's an inside joke, love is coming home

Chorus:

 And I think, I could make better use,

Yeah I'm doin' alright,
                     AA chord
