How To Play

INTRO
A#m G#m    x4
 
VERSE 1
A#m      G#m
  In the afternoon
A#m      G#m
  Yellow curtains drawn
A#m             G#m
  Designed with comfort in mind
A#m         G#m
  Glowering into the night
A#m         G#m
  Feel like letting go
A#m     B
  Final resting place
C#              G#m
  The house cat knows when it's time
A#m
  To enter another phase
 
CHORUS 1
F#               B
  But you looked sad
A#m        G#m
  In a reassuring way
A#m           B
  And I don't want to leave
F#               B
  So we can both be the same
 
BREAK
A#m G#m    x2
 
VERSE 2
A#m      G#m
  In the afternoon
A#m      B
  Modern sovereignty
C#             G#m
  The sunlight stopped coming through
A#m      G#m
  And we lost the game
A#m           G#m
  Brains like nesting dolls
A#m        B
  Plotting their escape
C#            G#m
  The doorman sees you're alone
A#m
  He can't seem to find your name
 
CHORUS 2
F#           B
  But you my friend
A#m             G#m
  Know problems can't be solved
A#m              B
  And they don't understand
F#                 B
  And somehow it's all the same
F#                 B
  And somehow it's all the same
F#                 B
  And somehow it's all the same
F#                B
F#                 Bs all the same

CHORUS 3
F#               B
  Relief is like candy
A#m            G#m
  The sweetest kind of love
A#m                    B
  Who'd guess that I'd feel this way?
F#                B
  Like a kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B
  A kid in a candy store
F#           B          A#m
  A kid in a candy store
