Intro: A  C#m  (4x) 

A                   C#m 
Is it all so very simple 
     D           E 
And horribly complex? 
 D                 E 
You suffer in a thimble 
              A             D 
And there's nothing coming next 

      A                  C#m 
Your mom smokes in the kitchen 
      D               A 
Her voice a cutting drone 
D                    E 
So creeping out, you pass the bar 
        A              D 
Your father's second home 
             A       D   E 
That leaves you on your own 

A                  C#m 
Nights I'd often watch you 
D                  E 
Float across the grounds 
D           E 
Out the gate to the motorway 
      A                D 
What secrets have you found? 

A               C#m 
You had to know I wanted 
D                   A 
Something from you then 
D                  E 
Too young to know just what it was 
           A            D 
Something more than a friend 
         A      D   E 
Is that you at the end 


           F#m  E          D             (D   E) 
Where you play     in the street at night 
F#m   E           D          (D   E) 
Blown like a broken kite 
F#m   E                D           (D   E) 
My girl, you're giving up the fight 
     A           C#m        G 
Are you gonna let these Americans 
             E 
Put another dent in your life? 


A  C#m (2x) 


     A             C#m 
My mother says your dirty 
         D              E 
They're gonna find you dead 
D              E 
But have you got that final chapter 
A                D 
Written in your head? 

       A            C#m 
Cause every single story 
      D           A 
Is a story about love 
D             E 
Both the over flowing cup 
           A            D 
And the painful lack thereof 
              A      D   E 
You got the heart of a dove 


           F#m   E          D             (D   E) 
But,  you play     in the street at night 
F#m   E           D          (D   E) 
Blown like a broken kite 
F#m   E                D           (D   E) 
My girl, you're giving up the fight 
F#m         E               D           (D   E) 
You'll have to lose all them childish notions 
     A           C#m        G 
If you're gonna let these American boys 
             E 
Put another dent in your life 

Instrumental: Bm  D  E D (4x) 


           F#m   E          D             (D   E) 
         you play     in the street at night 
F#m   E           D          (D   E) 
Blown like a broken kite 
F#m   E                D           (D   E) 
My girl, you're giving up the fight 
F#m         E               D            (D   E) 
You'll have to lose all them childish notions 
     A           C#m        G 
Or you're gonna let these Americans 
             E 
Put another dent in your life
