[Verse 1]
F C If I had to break it dow Em F I'd say it's the way you love to dance Bb7 C Movin' the furniture when
my back is turned
G7 The flick of the lights and
the world falls away
F And your office job and
your silver hair
Em F But our shapes in the dark are the reason
I've stayed for all these years
[Verse 2]
F C I thought I was a genius,
but now I'm twenty-two
F Bb7 And it's startin' to feel like all
I know how to do is
Am G Put on a suit and take it away [Chorus]
F With my fist full of tunes
that it's painful to play
Em F Fingernail worlds like favorite seashells Bb7 C They fill up my nights
Am G7
and then they float away

[Verse 3]
F I've got hundreds of gowns,
I've got paintings in frames
Em And a throat that fills with
panic every festival day
Bb C Dutifully fallin' apart for
Am G7
the Princess of Norway
F C But you, with your tall slashes,
Em F
your infinite t-shirts
Bb C I should've known when your favorite
record was the same as my father's
G7 You'd take me down [Verse 4]
F C I guess I'll always be this way Em Swallowed up by the words,
and halfway to space
Bb7 C But there, by the fire,
you offered your hand
G7 And as I took it, I loved you,

the boy with the plan
D G D G You found me clean as a pine D G The man with the axe and
Bb7 C7 D
the lo- ok in his eyes
D / G D / G [Outro]
D G We've been through so many hard times D G I'm writin' a love song for you, baby
