Tabbed by Don Güemes

Gm                               Bbsus2
  Bright eyes reflect the morning sun, she wakes so lost for love
Cm7                                                     Dm7
  So scared she'll never find someone, so scared she'll never be in love
Gm                            Bbsus2
  One piece of paper, fifteen words she writes in perfect hand
     Cm7                                            Dm7
"You give until you've given up and you are sure to find a perfect man."

   Bah   dah     dah    dah       bah   dah        dah   dah


[Keep playing these throughout the second verse, the chords are as follows:]


Gm                               Bbsus2
  The smile, sketched and painted over her, so worn and faded
Cm7                                                      Dm7
Searched for love, she sat and waited, tried her hardest to forsake me
Gm                    Bbsus2
  Is she an angel or a fly far too close to a flame
Cm7                                                 Dm7
Either way her wings will burn unless she learns to turn and fly away



Cm7   Dm7       Gm   Bbsus2
   Oh no, we're here again
Cm7   Dm7
   Oh no, we're here again



Break (01:07 - 01:12)

        Ooh  ooh ooh ooh ooh



(Repeat main arpeggios) (01:12 - 01:38)

Bah dah dah dah bah dah dah dah dah
Bah dah dah dah bah dah dah dah




Gm                          Bbsus2
  One piece of paper can be heavier than any weight
     Cm7                                                  Dm7
With words that hold her heavy heart, a map that seems to keep her in one place
Gm                                  Bbsus2
  That's how she walks the world and how the world walks over her
    Cm7                                              Dm7
She gives until she's given up, she gives up all the love that she deserves



Cm7     Dm7       Gm   Bbsus2
  Oh oh no, we're here again
Cm7    Dm7      Gm     Bbsus2
  So close, so near the end
Cm7  Dm7      D#     G
  We joke and we pretend
        Cm7    Dm7
But we know



Break (02:19 - 02:40)

(Note: the notes between brackets are not played on the
album version of the song, only live (or at least on 
the live version from this CBC Radio podcast I have))


Banjo parts (02:40 - end)


   Gm           D#            Bbsus2               Cm7                  Dm7

When playing live David plays these arpeggios instead of the banjo bits:

(02:40 - end)


   Gm              D#              Bbsus2                   Cm7                   Dm7
