--Verse 1--
A              E
The gutter may profess its love,

A                   C#m     D
Then follow it with hesitation,

A                     C#m     E                      D E
But there are just so many of you out there for rent

A                     E
A stronger girl would shake this off in flight,

A                 C#m         D
And never give it more than a frowning hour,

A                     C#m           E
But you have let your heart decide, loss has conquered you,

--Chorus--
D          E            D
You've won one too many fights,

        E
Wearing many hats every time,

D       E                A     D E
But you wont win here tonight,

--Verse 2--
Same chords as Verse 1
You've made it through the direst of straits alright,
Can you help it if plain love now seems less interesting?
You haven't changed an ounce in my eyes,
And I cannot lecture you,

And does anything I say seem relevant at all?
You've been at the helm since you were just five,
While I cannot claim to be more than a passenger,

--Chorus--
D           E                D
But, you've won one too many fights,

        E                          D
Wearing all of your clothes at the same time,

        E              F#m
Let the good times end tonight,
   
   G                     D              E
Oh girl, sail her, don't sink her, this time

D (Repeat Intro)

--Guitar Solo--
  A                    E                    A                    C#m      D

Verse chords

--Middle Part--
F#m    G                  F#m
Just a moment or two from now,

      G                     F#m
Not a mind will retain even a trace,

       G                            D
Of the thoughts that I struggled to tell

        E
And how our stack of cards just fell,

--Verse 3--
Same chords as Verse 1
So settle this once and for all,
The light no longer shows the cracks around my door,
And I have no lantern to light your way home tonight,

--Chors--
Same chords as previous chorus
You are not some saint who's above,
Giving someone a stroll through the flowers,
You've got so much more to dream of,
Oh girl, sail her, don't sink her,
This time,
This time,
This time.

End on D
