     D           Gbm
You wait for a silence
   A          E
I wait for a word
       D            Gbm
Lying next to your frame
 A       E
Girl unobserved
      D           Gbm
You change your position
          A     E
You're changing me
   D            Gbm
Casting these shadows
       E             A
Where they shouldn't be


D           Gbm
We're interrupted
        A          E
By the heat of the sun
D           Gbm
Trying to prevent
         A       E
What's already begun
D              Gbm
You're just a body
        A        E
I can smell your skin
     D          Gbm
And when I feel it
         E      A
You're wearing thin


     Gbm      D  E
But I've got a plan
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            Gbm     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               Gbm
I'll still be there at the end
           D           Gbm
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?


D           Gbm
Sat on your sofa
     A            E
It's all broken springs
       D           Gbm
This isn't the place for
        A        E
Those violin strings
   D           Gbm
I try out a smile
      A         E
And I aim it at you
     D           Gbm
You must have missed it
       E    A
You always do



     Gbm      D  E

   E           Gbm

           E           Gbm

           D           Gbm

           E          A

 D
You wait
        Gbm
I wait
Gbm         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted

Gbm         E
Casting shadows

One strum or pick

        E           Gbm
