[Intro]
Fm G# C# G/B  C
Fm G# C# Bb/D C/E

[Verse]
Fm                                 G#                          
   Take back the instant when you brushed him off your shirt
C#
   You tried to drag him to the trash
G/B                          C
   You tried to trade him in for cash

Fm                                G#
   Take back the instant when you blew him off your path
                    C#
With a kiss reading 20 below zero
  Bb/D           C/E
Tomorrow is a no-go, a no-go

Fm                             G#
   Cold, cold moment when the first doubt shot through your head
   C#
A black ink drip running through your veins
      G/B         C
Dark halos adrift bringing you sweet pain


Fm                 G#              
   Pregnant seconds  dripping through the hour-glass
         C#
When the lure of man who would be kings
          Bb/D                C/E
Made you lose the man who was wearing your ring

Fm
   He didn’t match your luscious thoughts tonight
G#
   You couldn’t look him in the eye
C#                                   G/B      C  N.C.
   Awkward is the embrace when it’s not tight,   not tight

Fm                                            G#
   And so the jewel you once both had is left crumpled like a collapsed lung
C#                              Bb/D              C/E           Fm
   When all you had to do was hang out in the sun,  hang out in the sun


[Instrumental]
   G# C# G/B  C
Fm G# C# Bb/D C/E


[Verse]
Fm                            G#
   Sir, you feel so dignified,  your watch is very ornate
             C#
But you were just born in the right place
G/B                    C
   Just born into the right race

Fm                                   G#
   You’re climbing Mount Everest now,  granting whishes from above
C#                        Bb/D                   C/E
Favors are yours to give, lies are yours to live

Fm                             G#
   Take back the instants that led you to believe
        C#
That the earth shakes ‘cause you’re not happy
         G/B                     C
That the sun rises ‘cause you’re not sleepy

Fm
   You got the loudest parade in town
G#
   Clowns, assassins and crooks
C#
   You got ladies in see-through gowns
Bb/D                 C/E
   Reading extracts from your books

Fm
Beggars are trailing at the back
G#
Waving from the cardboard float
C#
   You’re thinking that from up close
    G/B                   C
Statistics can be such a drag

Fm                    G#
  Your cup is full now,  blood is the color of this wine
         C#                                  C
And it’s dripping from the ceiling, and it’s making the chandeliers ring
        Bb
And the instant the ballroom overflows
C                              Fm
   Your thrones turn into your gallows 


[Instrumental]
