Intro: A D A F#m D A 
 
Asus2       F#m            D       A
Falling for you was always falling up
        F#m               D          A     Asus2
Leather books and surplus government chairs
            Dsus4        D               A
I rose like smoke or the steam from your cup
         F#m            D             Dsus2
Away the feed where the lighter flares

    A                         D     Dsus2
You might have had some other reason
   A                        Em
To burn me like a tissue screen
       D          Dsus2   A   D A Asus2 A Em
But my heart is a poor  judge
   D          Dsus2     A D A D A  
It harbors an old  grudge


Asus2       F#m            D       A
Falling for you was a walk off a cliff
             F#m          D            A  Asus2
A dream of a car with the break lines cut
         Dsus4       D          A
The only way you can stop it is if
          F#m                D           Dsus2 D
You turn around and keep the windows shut

    A                         D     Dsus2
You might have had some other reason
   A                        Em
To leave me in that dark ravine
       D          Dsus2   A  Asus4 Em
But my heart is a poor judge
   D          Dsus2     A D 
It harbors an old grudge


G               D      A D
And I can see a light on
Em                 D        G
Calling me back to make the same mistake
D    A
  Again
             Em          D
And I'll say no when you ask me
Am7                 G                Dsus2
No when you ask me, no when you ask again
         Em           D        Am7
'Cause I won't let it pass me, won't let it pass me 
G                    D                  Dsus2 A D A F#m D A
Won't let it past to see that I'm last again


Asus2       F#m       D          A
Falling for you was a last ditch plan
             F#m          D            A     
You sized me up with your thumb on the scale
          Dsus4         D           A
I came up short but you do what you can
             F#m         D           Dsus2  
The hammer's nothing without the nail


    A                          D    Dsus2
You might have had some other reason
   A                      Em
To leave me to the guillotine
         D          Dsus2   A  Asus4 A Asus4 Em
But your heart is a poor judge
   D          Dsus2     A D 
It harbors an old grudge

G             D      A D
  I can see a light on
Em                 D        G
Calling me back to make the same mistake
D      Dsus2 A D A D A
  Again
