Intro: B  Ebm
 
Verse 1:
B                      Ebm
Salt of the earth, my friend
      B                      Ebm
It's all that we are in the end
           B                              Ebm
Well, you trapped down all the lines you drew
     B                                                  Ebm
And I can take the hit but I'm sorry, I don't want the bruise
 
Pre-Chorus:
 E
Your voice gets a little loud
 Em                                     B       Ebm
When there's nothing to talk about, you shout, dear
 E
And I'll find my lights fading out
Em
More and more by the hour
         B       Ebm
It gets dark in here
 
Chorus:
            E      Em      B
If you got time enough for me
           E        Em        B
Sing me a song and send me to sleep
          E        Em           B
Slip into my headspace while I dream
          E             Em        B
Spin me a yarn, wrap it up around me
 
Interlude: B   Ebm
 
Verse 2:
B                 Ebm
Dust to dust, my friend
 B
Well, you're only blood and bones
                                          Ebm
And I know your heart's at war with your head
     B                Ebm
I am sure it hurt to see
                  B
You're more than I'll ever have
                        Ebm
And more than I'll ever be
 
Pre-Chorus:
 E
I know it's a little late
Em
My timing was never great
          B        Ebm
But I'm calling, dear
E
I just wanted to let you know
Em
That I won't bother you anymore
        B                   Ebm
I'll be gone this time next year
 
Chorus:
            E      Em      B
If you got time enough for me
           E        Em        B
Sing me a song and send me to sleep
          E        Em           B
Slip into my headspace while I dream
          E             Em        B     Ebm
Spin me a yarn, wrap it up around me
           E       Em      B
If you got time enough for me
           E        Em         B
Sing me a song and send me to sleep
                        E         Em        B
I never thought that a lie could sound so sweet
                        E
Until you opened your mouth
        Em              B
And you said you loved me
