Being Boring

Bb  C Am7  Dm x2  Bb  Am7  Gm7  Fmaj7

F#m      
  I came across a cache of old photos
    Em7       
and invitations to teenage parties
F#m                                     
  Dress in white one said with quotations 
     Em7
from someone’s wife, 
                        G/A       A
a famous writer in the nineteen-twenties

D  
  When you’re young you find inspiration 
  G6                               
in anyone who’s ever gone
C                                    
  And opened up a closing door
Am                                A
  She said we were never feeling bored

                    Bb          C
‘Cos we were never being boring 
                 Am7                Dm
We had too much time to find for ourselves
                   Bb          C
And we were never being boring 
                   Am7                      Dm
We dressed up and fought then thought make amends
                   Bb              Am7
And we were never holding back or worried that
Gm7                  Fmaj7
time would come to an end

When I went I left from the station 
with a haversack and some trepidation 
Someone said if you’re not careful you’ll have nothing left 
and nothing to care for in the nineteen-seventies

But I sat back and looking forward, 
my shoes were high and I had scored
I’d bolted through a closing door 
and I would never find myself feeling bored

                    Bb          C
‘Cos we were never being boring 
                Am7                 Dm
We had too much time to find for ourselves
                   Bb          C
And we were never being boring 
                   Am7                      Dm
We dressed up and fought then thought make amends
                   Bb              Am7
And we were never holding back or worried that
Gm7                   C
time would come to an end
                Bb           Am7
We were always hoping that, looking back
          Gm7              Fmaj7
you could always rely on a friend

Em7  Fmaj7 x2

Now I sit with different faces in rented rooms and foreign places
All the people I was kissing, some are here and some are missing
in the nineteen-nineties

I never dreamt that I would get to be 
the creature I always meant to be
But I thought in spite of dreams, you’d be sitting her with me

‘Cos we were never being boring 
We had too much time to find for ourselves
And we were never being boring 
We dressed up and fought then thought make amends
And we were never holding back or worried that
time would come to an end
We were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend

                   Bb          C
And we were never being boring
         Am7         Dm
We were never being bored
                    Bb          C
‘Cos we were never being boring
         Am7           Dm
We were never feeling bored

Bb  Am7  Gm7  Fmaj7
