Intro/bass riff:
Dm

Verse 1:
Dm                  C      G
She never had an education
Dm                     C      G
She uses life as her vocation
Bb          D      Bb              D
Standing on ledges clinging to the edges
C             G             D
The world's a hard place to land on

Verse 2:
Dm                         C      G
She has this one way conversation
Dm                C       G
Trying to avoid a confrontation
Bb       D           Bb                D
Memories of the kind that she'd rather leave behind
C             G             D
The world’s a hard place to land on

Chorus:
Dm                  C                G
Life can be lonely, life can be very sad
Dm                    C                  G
Life can be something you wish you never had
Dm                  C                G
Life can be lonely, life can be very sad
Dm                    C                  G
Life can be something you wish you never had

Repeat intro:
Dm (Or bass riff x4)

Verse 3:
Dm                   C      G
She never had any affection
Dm                       C       G
So she relates well to rejection
Bb              D          Bb                 D
No stories wait discovery, dreams have passed recovery
C             G                D
Never had a chance from the beginning


Bridge:
         F#m        F
She just sleeps all day
       Em             G     
In her squalid little slum
          F#m          F
And takes little white pills
            Em            G
To make her body feel all numb
         D        G
And it's dark and dirty
            F               Am
And there's nothing left to eat
    D      G               F          Am
And in her heart there's a feeling of defeat
          D             G
Smells of bugs and fornication
      F               Am
And a bottle of cheap scent
           D      G
Should she stick around
   F                Am        D
If this is all that life meant


Chorus:
Dm                  C                G
Life can be lonely, life can be very sad
Dm                    C                  G
Life can be something you wish you never had
Dm                  C                G
Life can be lonely, life can be very sad
Dm                    C                  G
Life can be something you wish you never had



Solo/Outro:
Dm    C    G
Whoa, oh, 
Dm  C     G
oh, oh,

         Dm         C  G 
Open the door wally,  open the door
Dm
Open the door wally, open the door
C                    G
Open the door wally, open the door

Dm   C   G X10
