Here it is! 100% correct, (I think)

First Verse:

So the wind the blows across your room,
        E 
Carry cheap perfume onto your dresser,
  A                              E
It rained for jewelery and for credit cards,
(continue with E)                
Two tickets to a film I don't remember,
      A                          E
One day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phone,
     A
To find I've been turned over,
                        E
You grab that piece of gold,
     A
Only to find that the smell has taken over,
                                       E
And all the things you had,
                        A
They aren't the same
                 B
As what you hold
             E
Second Verse:

Now I'm standin' in a room,
           E
That's filled with older folks,
                     A  
They're pleading baby listen,
                     E
And I scream as loud as anyone,
(continue with E)
But when asked to make a point,
           A
I tend to whisper
            E
Now highways turn the tidal waves,
      A
An' they're askin' me to export all of your insecurities,
                                           E
But that wind that blows across your room,
           A
It's gonna' set the sails,
(continue with A)
And send me back to yooou, ooh,

Chorus

 Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
E
 Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
A
 And I think, I could make better use,
E
 Of my time on land,
A
 I'll drink less,
E
 Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A
 Warm kiss, Instead of the call goodbye
B
 I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A
 Hey, Yeah I'm doin' allright

Bridge/Fast Part:

(E, A, E, A, A, B)= repeat once!

It's a shame what your father did,
         E                     A
To your brothers head, he smashed it with the telephone
         E                   A        A   B           
Your mother got scared and locked the door,
       E                     A
You were only four, but Lord, you remember it,
           E              B    A      A
So now you're scared of love
                A
I'm here to tell you love's not some fucking blood on the receiver
(continue with A)                                          (E, A, E, B, A, A)  

Love is speaking in code
       A
It's an inside joke, love is coming, home,
(continue with A)

Repeat Chorus, (but a little faster)
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah I'm doin' just fine,
                     A
An' if she seems as lonely as me,
                      B
Let her, sink,
          A
Yeah I'm doin' alright,
                  E
Yeah I'm doin' just fine,
                     A
An' if she seems as lonely as me, let her,
           B
Sink, you let her, sink, well let her!
 A       

(E, A, E, A, A, B)= 3 times
(E, A, E, B, A, A, E, let ring on last note!)
