Intro:
A E A E

Verse 1:
A                        E
Tell me, baby, tell me  
          A                                       E
Are you still on the stoop watching the windows close?

A                          E
I've not seen you lately
          A                                      E
On the street by the beach or places we used to go


Chorus 1:
        A                     B                   E     
I've a picture of you on our favorite day by the seaside
           A                          B                        E
There's a bird stealing bread that I bought out from under my nose


Verse 2:
Tell me, baby, tell me
Does his company make light of a rainy day?
How I've missed you lately
And the way we would speak and all that we wouldn't say

Chorus 2:
Do his hands in your hair feel a lot like a thing you believe in
Or a bit like a bird stealing bread out from under your nose?

Verse 3:
Tell me, baby, tell me
Do you carry the words around like a key or change?
I've been thinking lately
Of a night on the stoop and all that we wouldn't say

Chorus 3:
If I see you again on the street by the beach in the evening
Will you fly like a bird stealing bread out from under my nose?

Outro:
