Intro: A

Verse:
A
I thought I saw you in the battleship
D               Bm
but it was only a look-a-like
A
She was nothing but a vision trick
D           Bm
Under the warning light
Gbm             A                           Gbm
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
A
But my chances turned to toast
D                       Bm                   A               -Gbm   A   Gbm-
When i asked her if i could call her your name

Verse -same as first-:
I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in a wicker chair
I wandered over for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close, and she held me very tightly
'Til I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name.

Chorus:
D                                Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
Gbm                                       D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
E
And kept my shortcuts to myself

Interlude: A D E

Verse:
A
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
D                  Bm
Messing with the smoke alarm,
A
It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
D                Bm
And she had a broken arm,
Gbm             A                           Gbm
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
A
And she wrote it out in letra-set
D         Bm                Dbm
No, you can't call me her name

Bridge:
A                        Dbm
Tell me where's your hiding place
A                Dbm
I'm worried I'll forget your face
Gbm
And I've asked everyone
Bm                         E                  
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

Chorus:
D                                Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
Gbm                                       D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Bm
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
Dm
And kept my shortcuts to myself

Solo:
    A  D  Bm
    A  D  Bm  
    Gbm  Bm
    D  E

Verse:
A
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
D                      Bm
On the phone to the middle man
A
When I saw that she was on her own
D                      Bm
I thought she might understand
Gbm                       A
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
Gbm          A                              D
She said i'm really not supposed to but yes,
                       Bm               A
You can call me anything you want
