[Verse 1]
      C
To be lost in the forest
              Em
To be cut adrift
            Am
You've been trying to reach me
       G
You bought me a book
      C
To be lost in the forest
              Em
To be cut adrift
          Am
I've been paid

I've been paid

C Em Am G
C Em Am

C
Don't get offended
                   Em
If I seem absent minded
          Am
Just keep telling me facts
          G
And keep making me smile
C
Don't get offended
                   Em
If I seem absent minded
Am
I get tongue-tied
C                                Em
Baby, you've got to be more discerning
Am                           G
I've known never known what's good for me
C                              Em
Baby you've got to be more demanding
Am
I will be yours

[Chorus: x2]
(Same rhythm as verse)

Am G  C Dm.

               Am        G         C
I'll pay for you                          Anytime

[Verse 2]
    C                                 Em
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
     Am                        G
Well jump on, enjoy, you can gorge away
    C                                 Em              Am
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness

Jump right on
C                                Em
Baby, you've got to be more discerning
Am                             G
I've known never known what's good for me
C                                Em
Baby, you've got to be more demanding
  Am               C
I will be yours

        Em  Am                      G    C
What are you            Holding out for
        Em  Am                      C
What's always           In the way
        Em  Am                      G    C
Why so damn           Absent-minded?
        Em  Am
Why so scared         Of romance

[Chorus:x2]
(Same rhythm as verse)

Am G  C Dm
             Am       G   C
This modern love
             Am       G   C       Dm
breaks me
             Am       G   C
This modern love

wastes me

[Outro]
       C                              Em
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
       Am                             G
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
       C                              Em
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
Am                     C
Throw your arms around me

I don't think you can actually play this song with plain chords....
it just doesn't sound right...

this would be good backing somebody plucking but he's right, it just doesn't sound right on it's own.
you did a good job though, well done

Fair enough for your comments, I personally think it works great as chords , You need to slow up the rhythm and give it a new feel, The whole point of this being an acoustic chorded version is that it is differing to the original, Once again fair enough for your views but 2 star ratings?!?!?? The chords are all correct and it sounds right, Your only rating it lowly because you feel it is'nt right, WHICH IS WRONG!
