   D (xx0232@1)                Em (022000@1)     Bm (x24432@1)    G (320003@1)  First things first: I have a happy secret
   D (xx0232@1)            Em (022000@1)  The next bit's worse
        Bm (x24432@1)       A (x02220@1)     G (320003@1)  I intend to keep it that way
   D (xx0232@1)     Em (022000@1)               Bm (x24432@1)    G (320003@1)  I can't remember the last word spoken
     D (xx0232@1)      Em (022000@1)          Bm (x24432@1)  I got some mail I didn't open
              A (x02220@1)           G (320003@1)  It's an un-read letter day
          D (xx0232@1)            Em (022000@1)  I know both of us are poor
             D (xx0232@1)                 G (320003@1)  But baby what are phone bills for
D (xx0232@1)       Em (022000@1)    Bm (x24432@1)    G (320003@1)D (xx0232@1)              Em (022000@1)  When it's not raining
              Bm (x24432@1)                G (320003@1)  All these streets are filled with students
            D (xx0232@1)           Em (022000@1)              Bm (x24432@1)  But you won?t catch me complaining it's a nuisance
       A (x02220@1)           G (320003@1)  It's useless I know
          D (xx0232@1)               Em (022000@1)  A storm rolls across the suburbs
             D (xx0232@1)                       G (320003@1)  And the streets are as empty as the cupboards
                A (x02220@1)  But for the boy most likely
          G (320003@1)  And the girl most lovely
   D (xx0232@1)     Em (022000@1)          Bm (x24432@1)               G (320003@1)  Given time I could get tired of all this sleeping
      D (xx0232@1)              Em (022000@1)  The days I've thrown away
          Bm (x24432@1)             A (x02220@1)       G (320003@1)  And the hours that I am keeping
    D (xx0232@1)          Em (022000@1)         Bm (x24432@1)               G (320003@1)  But for a while I'm fairly happy feeling hopeless
      D (xx0232@1)         Em (022000@1)         Bm (x24432@1)  A somersault in a winter coat
             A (x02220@1)        G (320003@1)  I didn't notice a thing
        D (xx0232@1)              Em (022000@1)  And I say it like it's unrehearsed
       D (xx0232@1)                       G (320003@1)  But I said it in the bathroom first
     A (x02220@1)  "The boy most likely
            G (320003@1)  And the girl most lovely"
       D (xx0232@1)          Em (022000@1)  The hedges and the hibiscus
       D (xx0232@1)          Em (022000@1)  As soon as she?s outside she says
       D (xx0232@1)          Em (022000@1)    D (xx0232@1)         G (320003@1)  ?I grew up in the tidiest of towns?
       D (xx0232@1)               Em (022000@1)  Past the pub where my parents met
       D (xx0232@1)                       Em (022000@1)  Resigning ourselves to modern architecture
  D (xx0232@1)           Em (022000@1)        D (xx0232@1)    G (320003@1)    D (xx0232@1)  Don?t let the barstools get you down
