  Cmaj7
I think I've had enough of your world today
   Asus2                                              F
My head has opened up, and your pictures fall like rain
        Dm                  G
In front of my face they spin
        Cmaj7
We were corresponding shapes like the rocks in a ledge
         Asus2                                                      F
Now this puzzle has been rained upon, and the corners lost their edge
        Dm                G
Nothing fits as it once did
        Ab(#11)
But at least we had finished at -


Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
       Dm
What's wrong with that?
          G
Nothing, I guess


     Cmaj7
So I entertain my mind with little ticks and movie flicks
    Asus2
Combinations of quirky comedies, but they've all got romantic twists
            F                                    Dm
And when I can't forget I write, that's how this whole thing came to be
     G                Ab(#11)
It helps me when I'm lonely


Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
Am   Amadd9      G*     Am*   Fmaj7
All over this room I reign you are
       Dm
What's wrong with that?
          G
Nothing, I guess


Cmaj7                            G
So I guess you're right, I did abhor
                         Asus2
The awkward silence we endured
                              G
And spoke a truce to stop the swell
                            Cmaj7
And slow this spinning carousel
                               G
Yet still it spun from time to time
                                     Asus2
Laced with mistrust that cracked the spine
                                 G
This feeble frame just would not hold
                                Cmaj7
And sparked the drifting of two souls
                      G
I am not ready nor deserve
                             Asus2
A line of love that can't be blurred
                         G
Into a shallow blotch of lust
                             Cmaj7
A dirty thought, a pointless fuck
                    G
I never properly explained
                          Asus2
This bodied beauty you contain
                         G
Is too much for a man to take
                       
At such an ageless feeling age


Am            G*     Am*      F
All over this room I reign you are
Am            G*     Am*      F
All over this room I reign you are
Am            G*     Am*      F
All over this room I reign you are
       Dm
What's wrong with that?
          G
Nothing, I guess
          Dm
Nothing, I guess
          G      Fmaj7
Nothing, I guess

I think the tuning is actually 1/2 step down, not standard. Sounds better with the video that is mentioned.

haha, thanks. you made the same correction on my other tab of theirs, so even though it sounds right to me both ways, i'm thinking you're probably right again. :]
