E            F   
Giving in to love
               E                           
And sharing my time
                F
Letting someone into my misery
 E                    F
I told it all step by step

                     G         
How I landed on the island
            F               E
And how I’d swim across the sea
                  F           
And it crosses my mind
                               G        
That I may awake to a knife in me

        F                                 E
No more breath in my hair or ladies’ underwear
                   F   
Tossed up over the alarm clock
                        E                       F   
Blood dripping from the bed to a neatly written poem
                 E     F
A heartfelt last line reading


                  G        
“There is no more mystery"
               F           E                 
Is it going to happen, my love?
                  F
“There is no more mystery"
                          G   
Is it going to happen, my love?


               F                               E
It’s all in my head, she said, "Morning after nightmare
                  F                                 E   
You’re building a wall," she said, "Higher than the both of us
              F                             E   
So try living life instead of hiding in the bedroom
          F                             G     F
Show me a smile and I’ll promise not to leave you"

                    E                                 
It happened under a rainy cloud
                    F   
Passing through the dark south
               E          
We went into a big house
               F     
And slept in a small bed


                  E                
I didn’t know you then
                  F   
As well as you of me
                  E                 
We talked of our sad lives
            F        G     
And we went off separately


             F        E
And we went off separately
                          F   
I found your overseas souvenirs
         E                  
Holiday greeting cards
              F                   G
And some long-forgot high school fears


                F        
“It's all in my head," I said
          E               
Banging a piano
                  F   
“I've not been so alone," I thought
                      G      
“Since kicking in the womb"

                F  
I drank so much tea
                      E                 
I wrote my letters in Kanji, yeah
                   F   
Around the block I walked and walked
                    E                 
Pretending you were with me


                F      G      
Not wanting to die out here
    F   E
Without you

instrumental
E F E F G F G F E

                  F   
The hurting never ends
                   E                 
Like birthdays and old friends
                  F   
We forget that is flesh
                  E                
Blood and bone is human


                        F   
Trading phone lines for airlines
             E                 
Unwilling to face
             F             G
That love is found on the inside
        F        
Not the outside

           E                  
And like a medicine bottle
       F            G
In the cabinet I’ll keep you
           F   
And like a medicine bottle
      E           F    G      
In my hand I will hold you

    F           E
And swallow you slowly
                F   
As to last me a lifetime
                    E                 
Without holding too tight
                 F   E
I do not want to lose

                   F   
The thrill that it gives me
                    E                      
To look out from my window
                 F   
And scowl at the houses
        E           F        
From my world in my bedroom

                 G
“It's all in his head," she read
     F                 E
In a girlfriend’s self-help book
                  F   
“It's all his own making
               G        
A war with himself

                    F   
Like two sides of a wall
     E              F   
That separates two countries
                 E                      
He shuts out the world
                   F        
And wants only to love you”

               G       F
Not wanting to die out here
     E                 
Without you
                F      G  
Not wanting to die out here
   F    E
Without you

I think the E chord is actually e minor.
