  "Supermarket, what packet of crackers...the same, one brand, one"


VERSE 1
PART 1
F                      Am
Sunday, wake up, give me a cigarette.
            G                       F
Last night's love affair is looking vulnerable in my bed
     F     Am          G        F
Silk sheet, blue dawn, Colgate, tongue warm
PART 2
Em                            Am
Won't you quit your crying? I can't sleep
Em
One minute I'm a little sweetheart
         G                          Am
And next minute you are an absolute creep

CHORUS 1
PART 2
Am        C
We've got obsessions
          G                               
I want to wipe out all the sad ideas that 
F                            Am
come to me when I am holding you
         C
We've got obsessions
             G
All you ever think about are sick ideas 
F
involving me, involving you

VERSE 2
PART 3
F                 Am
Supermarket, what packet of crackers to pick?
                C/G           C/F            
They're all the same, one brand, one name, 
                   F
but really they're not
                                  Am
Look, look, just choose something quick
                                 C/G
People are staring, time to come quick in
                                C/F
Cheeks are on fire; just choose something, something, something
F              Am
Pressure overwhelming
                 C/G                                       
Next minute I am turning out of the door, 
C/F                     F
facing one week without food
                  Am
A day, a day when things, things are pretty bad
C/G                                 
Don't let it make you feel sad, 
      C/F                             F
those crackers were probably bad luck anyway
               Am             C/G
Can't let your cold heart be free
             C/F
When you act like you've got an OCD

come to me when I am holding you
          C
We've got obsessions

You never told me what it was that made

you strong and what it was that made you...

We've got obsessions

    F
you strong and what it was that made you...
PART 2
