            Csus2           G 
This is the story of a girl 
                      A7sus4                  D
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world 
               Bm              Csus2
And while she looks so sad in photographs 
   A7sus4
I absolutely love her 
          G        D Csus2 G  D Csus2
When she smiles 


Bm                  Csus2
How many days in a year 
    G                           D
She woke up with hope but she only found tears 
   Bm               Csus2
And I can be so insincere 
G                       D
Making the promises never for real 
   Bm                          Csus2
As long as she stands there waiting 
 G                            D
Wearin' the holes in the soles of her shoes 
Bm               Csus2
How many days disappear 
     G                         D
You look in the mirror, so how do you choose 


       Em7                 D       
Your clothes never wear as well the next day 
          G                   A7sus4
And your hair never falls in quite the same way 
Em7               D                   A7sus4
You never seem to run out of things to say 


            Csus2            G 
This is the story of a girl 
                        A7sus4                 D
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
                Bm               Csus2
And while she looks so sad in photographs
    A7sus4
I absolutely love her
           G        D Csus2 G  D Csus2    
When she smiles


Bm                     Csus2
How many lovers would stay
        G                       D
Just to put up with this xxxx day after day
Bm                         Csus2
How did we wind up this way 
G                                 D
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
    Bm                      Csus2
As long as we stand here waiting
 G                                 D
Wearing the clothes of the souls that we choose
Bm                    Csus2
How do we get there today
             G                             D
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes
       Em7                 D       
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
          G                  A7sus4
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
    Em7              D                    A7sus4
But you never seem to run out of things to say


            Csus2           G 
This is the story of a girl 
                      A7sus4                  D
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world 
               Bm                  Csus2
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
   A7sus4
I absolutely love her 
          G        
When she smiles
