   / Thom Yorke  /  I think this song is about Thom trying to not think of his
  / The Eraser  /  old girlfriend as well as she's trying to forget about him.
 / The Eraser  /  But he simply cannot forget her nevertheless as the more and
/_____________/  harder he tries to forget her, the more he thinks of her in a
                in a way... you get the point :P

These two lead chords are quite weird! They're all androgyny and someway
senseless. They're similar to each other with a tone between; you can call them:

 A7(no3)  Emadd11(no5) G6sus2(no5)
 B7(no3) F#madd11(no5) A6sus2(no5)

It's only weird 'cause the bass note is missing, so I'd simply call them:

     C6/G            D6/A
   -------------   -------------
   ----------5--   ----------7--
   ---9- or -2--   --10- or -4--
   ---7------5--   ---9------7--
   --10---------   --12---------
   -------------   -------------

In the chorus Em, D and D#6/Bb also appear. The D# is of course the same shape
as the two previous chords and the D is not played at all, but only appears in
the shape of Thom's vocal landscape, so you'll have to handle that by yourself!
Remember that you can always mail me if you need help for the D...

      Em*            D#6/Bb
   ---7---------   -------------
   ---8---------   ----------8--
   ---9---------   --12- or -5--
   -------------   --10------8--
   -------------   --13---------
   -------------   -------------

*I'd boost the Em a little! By the way Em / G / # is also the key for the song.

1st Verse:
  Please excuse me, but I got to ask
  Are you only being nice because you want something?
  My fairytale arrow pierces
  Be careful how you respond, 'cause you'd not end up in this song
  I never gave you an encouragement

  And it's doing me in, doing me in
  Doing me in, doing me in, doing me in

  | C6/G | D6/A |
      Em               D
  The more you try to erase me 
      C6/G       D6/A
  The more, the more
      Em              D
  The more that I appear 
      C6/G       D6/A
  The more, the more 
      Em                D
  The more you try the eraser 
      C6/G       D6/A
  The more, the more 
      Em                D
  The more that you appear 

  | D#6/Bb |

2nd Verse:
  You know the answer so why do you ask?
  I am only being nice because I want someone
  You're like a kitten with a ball of yarn 
  And it's doing me in, doing me in
  Doing me in, doing me in, doing me in

  The more you try to erase me 
  The more, the more 
  The more that I appear 
  Oh the more, the more 
  The more I try to erase you 
  The more, the more 
  The more that you appear 

  No, you're wrong, you're wrong
