Intro: C  G  F  C G

C
The carbonation in my drink
G
The bubbles rise while my heart sinks
F                                     C G
And I'll I tend to do is think of you


C
Was it easier to pack your bags
G
And book that flight to paris as
F                                      C G
The plane began to move that afternoon

Interlude: C  G  F  C G

C
When all the trains have pulled away
G
From local stations in decay
F                                         C G
It's I who waits, it's you who's late again


C
And did you think of me when you made love
G
To him, was it the same as us
F                                      C G
Or was it different, it must have been

Interlude: C  G  F  C G

C          G       C
And all the pretty dames
       F        Am      G
They'll hug and kiss you all the same
               F         C
And when they go, they're gone
        Am  G   C    F
They're not run-ning late
C       G      C
Oh all, all the pretty dames


C             G             C
And the kids you hold in your arms
     F     Am    G
With promises to protect them from harm
            F          C
But they grow, and they go
    Am     G  C  F
And you're all a-lone
       C              G             C
All the kids, all the kids that you hold


          C             G         C
And it's a shame that it ends this way
     F       Am      G
With nothing left to say
       F           C            Am G   C F
So just sit on your hands, while I walk aw-ay
C             G             C
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
        C     G        C
When my hands begin to shake
    F       Am           G
When bitterness is all I taste
       F         C
And may car won't stop
     Am G   C   F
Cause I cut the brakes
  C            G          C
I hold on to a hope in my fate


C     G     C
Oh oh ah ah hey hey
    F   Am        G
May you return to love one day
     F            C
Well I hope and I pray
    Am  G    C   F
You get what you gave


C     G     C
Oh oh ah ah hey hey

  1. it’s actually the fourth string and the third string

  2. for the intro there’s a small riff after each chord which i think should be g c d (on the third string after the first c) and then d e g (on the second string after the first g)
