[Intro]

G F Am C


[Verse 1]

Am                          G
You said you wanted someone just like me
                           F
you let me read it in your diary
Dm
I'd like to write this out of history
G
it was an awkward patch
F        C
I had an itch to scratch


[Pre-chorus]

F#m          A           
We spent the summer kissing
F#m           A 
in a basement room
learning all the rules
F#m                          A         
you made them up as you went along
              F#m            A
and then your passion cooled
you really had me fooled


[Chorus]

Dm               G 
I'm not gonna be around
           C          F
you better write this down
Dm                        G
I'm gonna leave without a sound
           C          F
you better write this down


C Am F C


[Verse 2]

Am                      G
I didn't really need to hear the facts
C                          F
but you know me I couldn't help but ask
Dm             C            F
and now you're telling me I need to relax
G
I chose the warmest day
F
to rain on your parade


[Pre-chorus]

F#m                          
I learned to love the sickly sweet
            A  
in order to meet
all of my body's needs
F#m          
you swore to keep me in your nest
                     A
how could you tell a lie
about the birth of a child?


[Chorus]

Dm                G
I won't always be around
           C          F
You better write this down
Dm                        G
I'm gonna leave without a sound
           C          F
You better write this down (day by day)
Dm             G
we assemble it all
            C       F 
and then we tear it away (day by day)
Dm             G
we assemble it all
            C       F
and then we tear it away
Dm 
assemble it all
C              
assemble it all
Dm
assemble it all
C
assemble it all


[Bridge]

Dm    G  Dm        G    
Stealing post-punk posters
Dm         G       Dm
from your sister's room
G        C      Dm          G
Gossamer voices rising from speakers
     Dm      C     G     C
in a prefabricated plume
E
Here's an entry for your diary:
Dm
dictation - are you ready?


[Chorus]

                 G
I'm not gonna be around
           C          F
you better write this down
Dm                        G
I'm gonna leave without a sound
           C          G
you better write this down (day by day)
Dm             G
we assemble it all
            C       F 
and then we tear it away (day by day)
Dm             G
we assemble it all
            C       F
and then we tear it away (day by day)


[Outro]

Dm                G
I won't always be around
           C          F
You better write this down (day by day)
Dm                       G
I'm gonna leave you underground
           C          F
You better write this down (day by day)
Dm             G
we assemble it all
            C       F 
and then we tear it away (day by day)
Dm                        C
I'm gonna leave without a sound
           F
You better write this down
