Olympia - This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

[Intro]

Bm    F#m   Bm    F#m


[Verse 1]

Bm           D
   This quiet piece of heaven
Bm                  D       A
   Birds cut circles out of sky
Bm               D
   Below, boredom gets her bitch on
Bm                D               A
   The trash, the treasure, white noise


[Chorus 1]

D                F#m
   Every time we meet we fall
D                F#m           A     A
   Every time we meet we fall apart
  Bm                       D
(apart) Falling apart like apples in pieces
  Bm                      D           A
(apart) Running away like watercolour stains
  Bm                       D
(apart) Falling apart like distant lovers
  Bm                    D                 A
(apart) Flown away like paper bags in the rain


[Verse 2]

Bm           D
   And I tied all these memories
Bm                  D
   Stacked like semi-precious jewels
Bm           D
   Painted by little forest fire
Bm                 D       A
   What were we but tapioca pearls?


[Chorus 1]

D                F#m
   Every time we meet we fall
D                F#m           A     A
   Every time we meet we fall apart
  Bm                       D
(apart) Falling apart like apples in pieces
  Bm                      D           A
(apart) Running away like watercolour stains
  Bm                       D
(apart) Falling apart like distant lovers
  Bm                    D                 A
(apart) Flown away like paper bags in the rain


[Bridge]

(single strums)
Bsus2 Bm                   C
        I saw you on the street
          G6           C
I saw you drop her hand
               Em          G6        C
Still a goddam spark would light cigarettes
                        Em       G6
Lucky Rome was built on misspelt tattoos
C
I’ll get over you
C                    D
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh


[Chorus 2]

D                       F#m
   ‘Cause every time we meet we fall
D                F#m           A
   Every time we meet we fall apart
 A             D                   F#m
(every time we meet) Every time we meet we fall
D                F#m           A
   Every time we meet we fall apart
        A             Bm                       D
(‘cause every time we meet) Falling apart like apples in pieces
  Bm                      D           A
(apart) Running away like watercolour stains
  Bm                       D
(apart) Falling apart like distant lovers
  Bm                    D                 A
(apart) Flown away like paper bags in the rain
