[Intro]
A

[Verse 1]
A
 I thought I saw you in the Battleship
D                   Bm
 but it was only a look-a-like
A
 She was nothing but a vision trick
D          Bm
 Under the warning light
        F#m     A                        F#m
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
         A
But my chances turned to toast
        D             Bm                   A   F#m   A   F#m
When I asked her if I could call her your name

[Verse 2]
A
I thought I saw you in the Rusty Hook
D                 Bm
 Huddled up in a wicker chair
A
 I wandered over for a closer look
D                        Bm
 And kissed whoever was sitting there
        F#m             A                  F#m
She was close, and she held me very tightly
        A                      D
'Til I asked awfully politely, please
    Bm           A    F#m   A   F#m  E
Can I call you her name

[Chorus]
      D                  Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                    D
   Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
  Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
     E
And kept my shortcuts to myself

[Instrumental]
A D E

[Verse 3]
A
 I thought I saw you in the Parrot's Beak,
D                   Bm
 Messing with the smoke alarm,
A
 It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
D                Bm
 And she had a broken arm,
       F#m    A                            F#m
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
         A                     D
And she wrote it out in letra-set
         Bm                C#m
No, you can't call me her name

[Bridge]
A                      C#m
 Tell me where's your hiding place
A                    C#m
 I'm worried I'll forget your face
    F#m
And I've asked everyone
    Bm                       E             E6 optional here
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

[Chorus]
      D                  Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                    D
   Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
  Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
    Dm
And kept my shortcuts to myself

[Solo]
A D Bm
A D Bm
F#m Bm
D E

[Verse 4]
A
 I saw your sister in the Cornerstone
D                     Bm
 On the phone to the middle man
A
 When I saw that she was on her own
D                     Bm
 I thought she might understand
        F#m              A                  F#m
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
              A                          D
She said I'm really not supposed to but yes,
         Bm                 A
You can call me anything you want
