[Intro]
A D F A

[Verse 1]
E                A
I stopped into a club
                    D
I thought I'd see a show
             G
Everyone was there
                    E
At least everyone I know
                    A
Their knickers in a knot
                       D
Their hands upon their heart
                     G
The best they'd ever seen
                     E
The greatest work of art
                     A
I wished that it was me....

[Chorus]
                      D
It's bleaker than you think
    F              A
I'm running out of ink
             D
Give a guy a break
                A    E
This is what it takes
                  A
To drive a man to drink

E  

[Verse 2]
E            A
A party at a friend's
                  D
Toronto's coolest scene
                      G
I thought I'd bring a tape
                       E
To show them where I'd been
                    A
They listened for a while
                     D
The lyrics made them smile
                      G
They said that it was fine
                      E
Although it's not the style
                 A
I said it wasn't me

E     

[Verse 3]
E           A
Once upon a time
               D
I couldn't get enough
                G
Until I made it big
                       E
And that's when it got rough
             A
Dissapointed now
              D
Perhaps a bit surprised
                    G
To look them in the face
                    E
And see it in their eyes
                    A
They wish it wasn't me

[Chorus]
D
It's bleaker than you think
    F              A
I'm running out of ink
             D
Give a guy a break
                A    E
This is what it takes
                  A
To drive a man to drink

E  

[Verse 4]
E                  A
I used to hold you close
                    D
You used to tell me things
                 G
You never told a soul
                   E
Until you heard me sing
                    A
The details of your life
                 D
Condensed into a song
                     G
The neighbor and his wife
                  E
Work out and sing along
                      A
And you can't look at me

[Chorus]
                      D
It's bleaker than you think
    F              A
I'm running out of ink
             D
Give a guy a break
                A    E
This is what it takes
                  A
To drive a man to drink

E  

[Bridge]
Bm               F#m
Could song be an alibi
  Am       G            F#         Bm
A lyric replacement for falling in love
                 F#m
But now that the well is dry
  D          G               F#           B*  Bm
I can't understand what I've been singing of...
Abm*    F#m         Bm    F#m   Bm
Do you know what it is to love?
   Bm     F#m
To really love?
   Bm     F#m
To really love....
Bm     F#m  C#
Really love
   A
Do I?

[Verse 5]
E                A
I cycled by your house
                 D
I saw you on the lawn
                  G
I see you all the time
                 E
Now that you are gone
                     A
I tried to call your name
                      D
But something made me stop
                  G
I call you once a day
                   E
Until you call the cops
                     A
And told them it was me

E   

[Verse 6]
E                  A    
I filled a plastic bag
                  D
With everything I wrote
                 G
I threw it off a bridge
                        E                      
I thought that it would float.
                  A
The water made it sink
                     D
The bag was bleeding ink.
                      G
I wished that it could swim
                      E
I wished that I could drink
                     A
I wished that it was me.

[Chorus]
                      D
It's bleaker than you think
    F              A
I'm running out of ink
             D    Dm
Give a guy a break
                A
This is what it takes
                  D
To drive a man to drink
    F              A
I'm running out of ink
             D
Give a guy a break
                A    E    
This is what it takes
                  A    E
To drive a man to drink
                  A
To drive a man to drink
                  A
To drive a man to drink
