[Intro]

E


[Verse]

           E5      E/Eb    E5          C#m7
Here's to you, the same chords that I stole
        B5               E5
From a song that I once heard
        E/Eb  E5    C#m7                 B5
The same melody I borrowed from the void
              E5         E/Eb     E5     C#m7
I'd rather observe than structure a narrative
     B5             E5       E/Eb      E5     C#m7             
The characters are thin; the plot does not develop
    B5
It ends where it begins


[Interlude]

E C#m B (x2)


[Verse]

     E5               E/Eb   E5
It's on the screen, in paperbacks
   C#m7           B5
In section 8 and cul-de-sacs
  E5               E/Eb     E5                 
Electro haikus and drunk sonnets
    C#m7        B5     A    E
Are moving me along. Along.
E                     A    E  A
One, two, three, four!


[Chorus]

    E
You cut my hair
         G#m            B
You left red ink everywhere
                     A
Do my hands tell a story?
       B
Is it boring?
    E
You cut my hair
         G#m            B
You left red ink everywhere
                     A
Do my hands tell a story?
       B         E5  E/Eb  E5  C#m7  B5
Is it boring you?


[Verse]

          E5     E/Eb        E5
What I'd give to force your sigh
         C#m7     B5
What I'd give to see you cry
          E5      E/Eb   E5      
What I'd give for your caress
            C#m7
To see your blue cotton dress
B7                     E5
Balled up on the floor
        E/Eb E5           C#m7
Certain memories are the problem
         B5                     E5
Certain drunken lines are the shame
E/Eb   E5     C#m7
Seven hundred miles and four years
   B5                         A
I can't fight the flame; it burns.
A
And it burns and it burns and it burns.


[Chorus]

    E
You cut my hair
         G#m            B
You left red ink everywhere
                     A
Do my hands tell a story?
       B
Is it boring?
    E
You cut my hair
         G#m            B
You left red ink everywhere
                     A
Do my hands tell a story?
       B         E
Is it boring you?


[Outro]

B     C#m         E
Was I wishing on satellites?
B       C#m              E
Tell me how you've been doing that trick
B         C#m          E
I'm just wishing the flame away
B         C#m        E
Now I'm wishing the flame away.
