Verse 1 Chords:
G                                 D
  So you just stepped out of the front of my house
          C                    G
and I'll never see you again.
                        D                    C
I closed my eyes for a second and when they opened
                   G
You weren't there.
                             D
And the door shut shut I was vacuum packed, 
        C                  G
Shrink-wrapped out of air
                                 D
And the spine collapsed and the eyes rolled back
     C
To stare at my starving brain,

Chorus Chords:
G                     C          G          D
   And fully clothed,   I float away (I'll float away)
G
Down the Forth
C                                                      G
Into the sea, I think I'll save suicide for another day.

Verse 2: Use verse 1 chords
And I picture this corpse on the M8 hearse
And I half run away to sleep on a rolled up coat
Against the window  with the strobe of the sun
And the life I've led
Am I ready to leap is there peace beneath
The roar of the Forth road bridge?
On the Northern side there's a Fife of mine
and a boat in the port for me,

Final Chorus:
G            C               G           D
  And fully clothed, I float away (I'll float away)
G                C  (play this C on thru the next 5 lines)
Down the Forth, into the sea 
I'll steer myself through drunken waves
These manic gulls scream it's okay
Take your life give it a shake
Gather up all your loose change
                                           G C G C (to fade out)
I think I'll save suicide for another year.
