Intro -x2-: EmEm chord  DD chord  CC chord  BB chord

EmEm chord         DD chord                         CC chord
   You got the lights on in the afternoon
        BB chord                            EmEm chord
And the nights are drawn out long
           DD chord                          CC chord
And you're kissing to cut through the gloom
       BB chord                            EmEm chord
With a cough drop coloured tongue
         DD chord                              CC chord                             
You were sitting in the corner with the coats all piled high
      BB chord                            EmEm chord
And I thought you might be mine


     DD chord                                CC chord
In a small world on an exceptionally rainy Tuesday night
       BB chord
In the right place and time

Chorus:
         EmEm chord                         DD chord         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         CC chord                                  BB chord                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         EmEm chord                                  DD chord
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         CC chord            BB chord     
And your knee socks


EmEm chord          DD chord                CC chord
   Well you cured my January blues, 
         BB chord                    EmEm chord
yeah you made it all alright
        DD chord                               CC chord
I got a feeling I might've lit the very fuse 
         BB chord                          EmEm chord
that you were trying not to light
           DD chord                              CC chord
You were a stranger in my phonebook I was acting like I knew
        BB chord                    EmEm chord
Cause I had nothing to lose
         DD chord                               CC chord
When the Winter's in full swing and your dreams just aren't coming true
         BB chord
Ain't it funny what you'll do?

Chorus:
         EmEm chord                         DD chord         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         CC chord                                  BB chord                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         EmEm chord                                  DD chord
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         CC chord           BB chord     
And your knee socks

Bridge:
CC chord                            DD chord
In late afternoon, the ghost in your room
                EmEm chord                                 
That you always thought didn't approve of you knocking boots
                  CC chord                          BB chord
Never stopped you letting me get hold of the sweet spot
                      EmEm chord
By the scruff of your   knee socks


EmEm chord
You and me could've been a team
Each had a half of a king-and-queen seat
Like the beginning of Mean Streets you could Be My Baby

-The zeros lined up but the number's blocked-
-When you've come undone-

Chorus:
         EmEm chord                         DD chord         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         CC chord                                  BB chord                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         EmEm chord                                  DD chord
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         CC chord           BB chord     
And your knee socks

  1. I believe +5 is the easiest one? It’s E, F, G, and Am. If you can’t do E, I believe it was +3 (could be -3 or +4/-4) has an Eb in it and some different but easy chords.

  2. softlemonade

    Is it me or ‘D’ doesnt sound right?
