INTRO:

D Edim/D  D Edim/D  D Edim/D   D

Verse 1:
D                       E
Your heart sings like a kettle
           B                        D
And your words, they boil away like steam.
       D                         E
And a lie burns long while the truth bites quick,
   B                       D
A heart is built for both it seems.
                      E
You are lonely as a church,
              B                    D
Despite the queuing out your door.
                 E           B         D   D9
I am empty as a promise, no more.

Chorus:
D  A7        G
   When the time comes,
D    A7               G     D
 And rights have been read,
   A7           G
I think of you often
         D      A7           G
But for once I meant what I said.

INTRO: 

Verse 2:

I was salted by your hunger,
Now you've gone and lost your appetite
And a little bird is every bit as handy in a fight.
I am lonely as a memory
Despite the gathering round the fire.
Aren't you every bird on every wire?

Chorus 2:
D  A7        G
   When the time comes,
D    A7               G     D
 And rights have been read,
   A7           G
I think of you often
         D      A7           G
But for once I meant what I said.
D        A7  G         D
Here I stay, I lay me down,
     A7           G      D       A7           G
I'm dug from the rubble,    and cut from the kill.
D        A7  G         D
Here I stay, I lay me down,
      A7           G
In a house by the Hill.
 D      A7           G      D       A7           G
   I'm dug from the rubble,    and cut from the kill.
