Verse:
Am         F      C          E
   I got a crush,   copy shop clerk
Am               F            C(quickly mute after striking)
   But she won't look up at me
Am                  F
   Don't want to be known as the freak
C                 E                   Am(hit and mute)
   Who just comes around to catch her eye


Chorus:
            A               D                 Bm             E
We could be sleeping in the flowers, We could sleep all afternoon
         C                  F            Dm                 E
You'd proclaim that your an island, I proclaim that I'm one too
        A               D                 Bm               E
Then we float into the harbor, With just piers and boats around
    C                F             Dm                  E
I declare that I am England, You declare that I have drowned

Verse 2:
I got a ride, home with a drunk guy
How ungreatful I must have seemed
He showed me how, to spin my head round and round

Chorus:
We could be sleeping in the flowers, We could sleep all afternoon
You'd proclaim that your an island, I proclaim that I'm one too
Then we float into the harbor, With just piers and boats around
I declare that I am England, You declare that I have drowned

         C                  F            Dm                 E
You'd proclaim that your an island, I proclaim that I'm one too
