American Shoes – Rainbow Kitten Surprise

[Intro]
A F#m D x 2 

[Verse]
A             F#m      D                     A     F#m   D
You said I'll come back, I'll come back for you my love, wait for me 
A                   F#m    D                    A    F#m   D                 A
You said you're the only, you've been the only one I love, and love believes 

[Chorus]
F#m              D          A            E     F#m   D       A           E
But love is a bird that you kept in your coat, warm until it died in the dark
    F#m           D            A             E
And death is the love of what hurts you the most 
        D                                               A
So you drink your day away till you're warm as paradise 
A       G#m      F#m                  D           A
I'm not hurt I'm broken, but I called to say I'm fine 
A           G#m       F#m         D                                    A                
And I heard you had another love, but I'd love you to think I don't mind 
A                G#m        F#m         D                           A
The baby in your arms ain't mine, but I made believe as though it was
A                    G#m        F#m                     D          
And I didn't mean to call this late but I think I'm in love With the thought of us 

[Bridge]
A F#m D A x2 (6 down mute 5 down)

[Verse]
A                                                       
So you drink your day away till the liquor in your mouth laughs, 
F#m
And mirrors paint you beautiful like older photographs, 
             D                                A
But we grow, we grow old, even this won't last 
A
No one understands, no one cares at all 
F#m
And they're tearing down our sacred places in the hall 
D                                                             A
You know I hate to dance, still you ask, still you ask for my hand 
A                                      F#m
I love you like the kids love throwing bottles off the bridge 
             A                           D           A
And breaking in to trade your fix for American shoes 
     F#m
For American shoes, 
           A             D
I've been dying to lie awake in a room for two 
A   F#m    D                        A  F#m D
I'll come back, I'll come back for you my love 

[Chorus]
F#m              D          A            E     F#m   D       A           E
But love is a bird that you kept in your coat, warm until it died in the dark
    F#m           D            A             E
And death is the love of what hurts you the most 
        D                                               A
So you drink your day away till you're warm as paradise 
A       G#m      F#m                  D           A
I'm not hurt I'm broken, but I called to say I'm fine 
A           G#m       F#m         D                                    A                
And I heard you had another love, but I'd love you to think I don't mind 
A                G#m        F#m         D                           A
The baby in your arms ain't mine, but I made believe as though it was
A                    G#m       F#m                      D          
And I didn't mean to call this late but I think I'm in love With the thought of us 

A F#m D A x2 (6 down mute 5 down)
A                                      F#m
I love you like the kids love throwing bottles off the bridge 
             A                           D           A
And breaking in to trade your fix for American shoes 
     F#m
For American shoes, 
           A             D
I've been dying to lie awake in a room for two 
A   F#m    D                        A  F#m D
I'll come back, I'll come back for you my love
