I tabbed this from the Boats and Birds EP, so this version may be different than some of
other ones floating around. The chords overall are the same, though, of course. This
is in the key of Eb.

Feel free to e-mail me at v1invent@hotmail.com if you have any questions or errors that
like to point out. I'm pretty sure the majority of notes are correct, but I'm not sure
the playing position is correct. I've put down two versions, one with capo, and one 
capo, which is slightly harder.

Lyrics:

(i)
I wish to feel smaller under your sheets
I wish for the whole truth every time you speak
And I think about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep

And I guess it doesn't matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans
Ignoring me the morning after isn't enough
And I swear I'm gonna cry
I'm sick of tryin' to be tough

(ii)
And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

(iii)
And I wish to feel smaller under your hands
Though you seem satisfied as you slip mine down your pants
And I think about how you care half as much for me
As you lift up my shirt after asking politely

And I guess it doesn't matter what I am or pretend to be
'Cause it's her you'll always love and it's her I'll always envy
I want to end this now so dreams of you won't keep me up
But I swear I'm gonna cry
I'm sick of trying to be tough

(iv)
And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

(v)
And it's hard to find
What I want
When it's buried beneath the biggest rock
I could pay lots of money
To help lift it with machines
But I'm not sure you'd cooperate
Not sure you'd come clean

(vi)
And I wish to feel smaller
under your sheets
I wish for the whole truth
every time you speak
And I think about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep

And I guess it doesn't matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans
Ignoring me the morning after isn't enough
and I swear I'm going to cry
I'm sick of trying to be tough

Yeah, I swear I'm gonna cry
I'm sick of trying to be tough

(vii)
And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

Is gonna tear mine away
