Title:  Picture Window
Music By Ben Folds
Lyrics By Nick Hornby

F  C   
 
G                               F            C      G
They checked into the hospital new year's eve 
                         F                   C      G
Nothing to be done about that
                          F                  C      G
Rainbows, daffodils; she's not naïve
                          F                  C      G
Symbolism's all crap

                                      F
There's a big picture window in their room
                    C                    G
On the ward, with a view of a parliament hill
        Dm7(4)           F     C      
But the view offers more joy than they can afford
G
When there's this much pain to kill

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F              C    G     F(9)     C      G
Got no place in days like these

                        F                 C      
At dusk the darkness surrenders to color
       G
As the fireworks streak the sky
          F                  C
And their window gives them the prettiest picture
       G
Their useless luck makes her wanna cry
F                    C
Then it turns midnight, the shitty old year spent
   G
Another Mum gives her some sparkling wine
        F         C      
And she nearly gives in to the moment
           G
But she'll still be sick in 2009

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F             C     G                
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)    G    Em    F  (repeat 3 times)  

Am7(4)                    C/G
Just as she's thinking of pulling the blind down
F(9)/A                          Csus
A rocket bursts in front of her eyes
Dm7(4)       
The city lit up like a crown on London
        C                  F         F6
And she tries and fails to stop spirits rise

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F                    
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E             F               C/E    G     F(9)     C /E     G
Got no place in days like these

I dont know whom added the F (9 fr.) to my chord chart, but that is incorrect. It is F9 meaning an F major chord with an added 9. IGNORE the (9 fr.)!!!

I want to post or [tab]
