[Intro]

A           C    [followed by a bar of silence]


[Verse 1]

A           C
I got drunk and fell asleep
A           C
Atop the sheets but luckily
A           C
I left the heater on

D

A           C
And in my dreams I wrote the best
A           C
Song that I've ever written
A           C
Can’t remember how it goes
D           C

A           C
I stayed drunk and fell awake
A           C
I was cycling on a plane
A           C                D            C
And far away I heard you say you liked me

A             C
We drifted to a party, cool
A             C
The people went to arty school
A             C              D           C
They made their paints by mixing acid wash and lemonade


[Chorus]

A (Allow to sustain)
In my brain
I re-arrange
The letters on the page
To spell your name


[Verse 2]

A             C
I found an Ezra Pound
A             C
And made a bet that if I found
A             C             D            C
A cigarette, I'd drop it all and marry you

A             C
Just then a song comes on:
A                C
"You can't always get what you want"
A             C             D          C
The Rolling Stones, oh woe is we, the irony

A             C
The stones became the moss
A             C
And once all inhibition's lost
A             C            D         C
The hipsters made a mission to the farm

A             C
We drove by tractor there
A             C
The yellow straw replaced our hair
A             C              D           C
We laced the dairy river with the cream of sweet vermouth


[Chorus]

A         C
In my brain
A         C
I re-arrange
A         C             
The letters on the page
D         C
To spell your name


[Verse 3]

A             C
You said, "We only live once"
A             C
So we touched a little tongue
A             C
And instantly I wanted to
D             C

A             C
I lost my train of thought
A             C
And jumped aboard the Epping as
A             C
The doors were slowly closing on the world
D             C

A             C
I touched on and off
A             C
And rubbed my arm up against yours
A             C
And still the inspector inspected me
D             C

A             C
The lady in the roof
A             C
Was living proof that nothing
A             C
Really ever is exactly as it seems


[Chorus]

A         C
In my brain
A         C
I re-arrange
A         C             
The letters on the page
D         C
To spell your name


[Verse 4]

A             C
We caught the river boat downstream
A             C
And ended up beside a team
A             C
Of angry footballers
D             C

A             C
I fed the ducks some krill
A             C
Then we were sucked against our will
A             C
Into the welcome doors of the casino
D             C

A             C
We drank green margaritas
A             C
Danced with sweet señoritas
A             C
And we all went home as winners of a kind
D             C

A [Allow to sustain]
You said "I guarantee we'll have more fun

Drink till the moon becomes the sun
                       D               C
And in the taxi home I'll sing you a Triffids song"


[Chorus]

A         C
In my brain
A         C
I re-arrange
A         C             
The letters on the page
D         C
To spell your name


[Outro]

A [Until fade out]
