Intro: G  C  G  D

Verse:
G                               C
You wake up late, you feel your heart begin to work
               G
And now you're all dressed up of course
            D
And hailing cabs out of your door
G                        C
On 14th Street I feel my head between my knees
           G
And orange swimming through the trees
           D
And orange swimming through the trees
G                              C
Where could I go? What could I do?
                              G
Put in the state, my lips and eyes give me away
                 D
And now there is nothing, I can say no
G                      C
I'm pulled away, I see another of myself
                 G
Who's found true love and happiness
           D
To sit and smoke there on the chair for

Chorus:
G         C
Two boys, one to kiss your neck
    G
And one to bring you breakfast
D
Get you out of bed when
G           C
You're sore from the night before
     G
From knocking on my door
     D
Your head against the floor boards
G         C
Two boys, one to love you sweetly
G
One does so discreetly
D
Never will he meet me, but
G        C
I'm sure that you'll catch your breath
       G
You'll sleep into the day
   D
To wake up with sunlight across your room

Verse:
G                        C
Before I leave I want to try to go back in time
             G                                     D
To just that moment in my life where I should have spoke up but I lied
G                          C
As I sat there with my jaw open and I smiled
              G                                     D
He pulled his sweater off and tried to explain he'd all but given up on love
G                      C                                  G
I'm pulled away, I see another of myself who's found true love and happiness
           D
To sit and smoke there on the chair
G                          C
Beside the bed I read this past week's New Yorker
                G                               D
And I watch him paint Antarctica, and watch him paint Antarctica

Chorus:
G         C
Two boys, one to kiss your neck
    G
And one to bring you breakfast
D
Get you out of bed when
G           C
You're sore from the night before
     G
From knocking on my door
     D
Your head against the floor boards
G         C
Two boys, one to love you sweetly
G
One does so discreetly
D
Never will he meet me, but
G        C
I'm sure that you'll catch your breath
       G
You'll sleep into the day
   D
To wake up with sunlight across your room

Outro:
           G            C
Telling me something or nothing
          G                 D
Never the one thing I wanna hear
           G            C
Telling me something or nothing
          G                 D
Never the one thing I wanna hear
           G            C
Telling me something or nothing
          G                 D
Never the one thing I wanna hear
