Tabbed by Pete. Intro A5 , C5 A5 I grabbed hold of her wrist and my hand closed from tip to tip C5 I said ?you?ve taken the diet too far, you have got to let it slip? A5 But she?s not eating again, she?s not eating again, C5 she?s not eating again, she?s not eating again. A5 I ask her to speak French and then I need her to translate, C5 I get the feeling she makes the meaning more significant. A5 She was always far too pretty for me to believe in a single C5 word she said, believe a word she said. A5 , C5 A5 At fourteen her mother died in a routine operation, C5 from allergic reaction to a general anesthetic. A5 She spent the rest of her teens experimenting with prescriptions, C5 in a futile attempt to know more than the doctors. A5 C5 She said one day to leave her, sand up to her shoulders waiting for the tide A5 to drag her to the ocean, to another sea?s shore. C5 This thing hurts like hell, A5 but what did you expect? C5 A5 C5 And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart A5 C5 And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course A5 C5 But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me A5 Five hundred behind, C5 A thousand years in perfect symmetry A5 , C5 A5 Best known left wrist right finger, through all the Southern States, on C5 every video games machine they call her triple A. A5 There were racists on the radio trying to give up smoking, C5 the chat show host, he joked ?you have to wait for the government program?. A5 You talk about your politics, and I wonder if you could be one of them , but C5 you could never kiss a Tory boy without wanting to cut off your tongue again. A5 A good place to look to the future is when you are sat at the sea, with the C5 salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier, you may A5 look down at your model?s feet and wish that you?d just float away, and the C5 weather here is overcast and the sea is the same shade of grey, so the A5 landscape before you looks just like the edge of the world, but to the C5 left side and the right side, either way is a crazy golf course. A5 C5 The sea is a good place to think of the future. A5 C5 And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart A5 C5 And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course A5 C5 But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me A5 Five hundred behind, C5 A thousand years in perfect symmetry A5 A thousand years no getting rid of me C5 A thousand years in perfect symmetry. A5 , C5 until end. Its not perfect, but for acoustic cover its good.
