When It Was Ours

	  		

verse 1 

E                  A 
A Daffodil a rusty swing 
         B                    E 
A broken bench where once sat King 
E                          A 
A mouldy doll looks to the stars 
           B                                 E 
And it was mine and it was yours when it was ours 

verse 2 

E                               A 
A withered tree where birds did sing 
         B             E 
A broken song upon the wing 
E                                   A 
Those feathered hearts looked up to mars 
            B                                E 
When it was mine and it was yours and it was ours 

tabchorus
C#m G#m It was ours when I was yours A Before this place went on all fours F#m B Now it's under lock and key E E7 it isn't you it isn't me C#m It's other couples falling walls A It's other couples punctured balls F#m B No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs E Now it ain't ours

verse 3 E A The conversation the whisper laugh B E Is overgrown like garden path E A The twisted branch the crooked stairs B E It was yours it was mine now it's all theirs verse 4 E A The bicycle with buckled wheel B E Lays on the grass like how we feel E A A sparrow dies then Eagle soars B E Now it's all theirs no longer mine no longer yours
tabchorus
C#m G#m It was ours when I was yours A Before this place went on all fours F#m B Now it's under lock and key E E7 it isn't you it isn't me C#m It's other couples falling walls A It's other couples punctured balls F#m B No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs E Now it ain't ours

Verse 3 E A Revisit graveyards pubs and clubs B E But don't go back to the place you love E A They quickly return to distant shores B E When they're not ours no longer mine no longer yours
tabchorus
C#m G#m It was ours when I was yours A Before this place went on all fours F#m B Now it's under lock and key E E7 it isn't you it isn't me C#m It's other couples falling walls A It's other couples punctured balls F#m B No wasp filled jars or last hurrahs E Now it ain't ours
