alright...
easy song if it's okay that it's alittle off.



G
So the wind that blows across your room
C                              G
Carried cheap perfume onto your dresser 

It rained for jewelry and for credit cards 
C                            G
Two tickets to a film I don’t remember 
    C
One day you’ll kiss your rabbit’s nose, pick up the phone 
                   G
To find I've been turned over 
           C
And you’ll grab that piece of gold 
                                        D
Only to find that the smell has taken over 

Now all the things you had, they aren’t the same... 
            G
As what you hold 

same chords heah:

I'm standing in a room, 
It’s filled with older folks pleading "baby listen" 
And I scream as loud as anyone, 
But when asked to make a point I tend to whisper 
Now highways turn to tidal waves 
They’re asking me to export all of your insecurities 

         C
But that wind that blows across your room 
                                             G   D
Its gonna set the sails, and send me back to you 
G
Sometimes, when sailors are sailing 
C
They think twice, about where they’re anchoring 
G                                 C                    D
And I think, I could make better use of my time on land 
G
Ill drink less 
                              C
Cause lord knows I could use a warm kiss 
                        Am
Instead of a cold goodbye 

I’m writing the folks back home to tell them 
C                     G
"Hey I’m doing alright" 


G
It’s a shame what your father did to your brother’s head 
   C
He smashed it with a telephone 
           G
And your mother got scared and locked the door 
           C                      G          D
You were only four, but lord you remember it  
              C
So now you’re scared of love
             G                              C               G
I’m here to tell you loves not some fucking blood on the receiver 
          C
Love is speaking in code 

It’s an inside joke 
               G      D
Love is coming home 



same chorus chords
Sometimes, when sailors are sailing 
They think twice, about where they’re anchoring 
And I think, I could make better use of my time on land 
ill drink less 
cause lord knows I could use a warm kiss 
instead of a cold goodbye 
I’m writing the folks back home to tell them 
"hey I’m doing alright" 

                    C
yeah I’m doing just fine 
            Am
and if she seems as lonely as me..... 
         C
let her sink. 

let her sink. 

let her

G



pretty basic...actually, very very basic. SO probably not right, but it sounds alright to sing with.

it's not horrible, and it sounds okay to sing with.

my only suggestion is this:
G
Only to find that the smell has taken over
C D7
Now all the things you had, they aren’t the same...
G
As what you hold
