Slow strumming the whole way through...really easy to play!!

Verse 1:
D5
Wine bottle why are you weary?
    E5                  D5
And why are my eyes so grey?
D5
Semi-circle people are pointing
    E5                 D5
And staring up to the sky

Chorus:
        G5
And the dogs are all gone
       D5
And my muesli is mouldy
        G5                                D5
And the saints they are sinners in their songs
        G5                           D5
And the crickets they call to their rusted rainbow
  E5                                           D5
I swear if you listen you might just hear our song

Verse 2:
D5
TV light flickers so fiercely
E5                           D5
Bridging the gap between my eyes
D5
Outside the rain is tapping my window
E5                               D5
A jet trail left hanging in the sky

Chorus:
        G5                   D5
And the puddles reflect the sky in the morning
         G5                         D5
Then the pavements lead to another place
     G5
With one ear to the west
         D5
And then ocean beside me
  E5                                           D5
I swear if you listen you could just hear our song
E5                                             D5
Electric sensations will not stay with us for long

D5
Wine bottle why are you weary?
    E5                  D5
And why are my eyes so grey?

Semi-circle people are pointing
    E5                 D5

And the dogs are all gone

And the saints they are sinners in their songs
        G5                           D5
And the crickets they call to their rusted rainbow
  E5                                           D5
I think if you listen you might just hear our song
E5                                           D5
Eclectic sensations will not be with us for long
