F#                                E                         Ebm
Lydia keeps my toothbrush in her apartment and she never complains.
             E                           F#
Well, hardly ever. And then jokingly she says
                               E                           Ebm
Boy, it's been so long since I held you, I nearly gave you up for dead.
                         E
I nearly gave you up for dead.
                         C#m     C#
I nearly gave you up for dead.

Chorus:
F#                              B
Lydia, Lydia how come you understand?
                          E
I can offer you nothing at all.
                        Ebm       C#sus4 - C#
This is more than I had planned.
F#                        B                       E
Lydia, Lydia I am at your command, at least until morning comes, 
                    G#m
Then, I must be off again.
              D          E       F#
I must be off again

F#                                                     E
Lydia, you know I always talk about making conscious decisions
                      Ebm
About running my own life.
                E                                     F#
Well, maybe I'm fooling myself, it's a role I like to play.
                                                 E
Because more often than not I'm down here on the corner.
            Ebm    
I'm sorry I woke you.
                      E
Do you feel like some company?
                        C#m         C#        F#
Babe, I need a place to stay.


Repeat chorus

Orchestra solo: Same chords as in verse:

Repeat chorus


F#                                    E
I sleep with a woman who thinks I'm a child.
              Ebm
Well, maybe I am.
                     E
No, that wouldn't surprise anyone.
                       F#
I suspect that much is true.
                                         E            Ebm
But, Lydia, if you only knew how much I love you.
                    E
Did you know that I love you?
                         C#m        C#       
It's the best that I can do.

There is a lovely 'E diminished fifth' for the first two beats of the E chord in the chorus/solo (The simple way of doing it is little finger one fret up from suspended fourth) It sounds discordant but resolves beautifully.
